[Anandtech] GTX 690 Preview - Page 7

post #61 of 186
check me i get by with a 5770 128 bit,so in my case i bet any 384 bit newer gpu would be a huge improvment!the fact i tweaked my system to play in 1080i make it a lot more forgiving!if i was set in 1080p i would have moved on a long time ago to a better gpu!

That price tag...but the reference design looks great. It reminds me of some of XFX's cards though.

This card isn't here for "value" per se; it's here because it's a dual-GPU solution for those that may not want two individual cards. Also, its TDP is going to be lower than 2x GTX 680s, as will the noise factor since it's one PCB. Not only that, but if you watercool...you'll also only have to dish out for 1x waterblock.
The primary incentive is having the power of the top of the line Kepler, multiplied by two, in a single package. Thus, Nvidia regains the fastest GPU (single and dual) title as well.
Not sure why people continue to harp on the price - again, this is the first dual-GPU card that Nvidia has released that contains two of their highest-end flagship cards into one, without any compromises. The 9800GX2, GTX 295 and GTX 590 all either had their limitations that did not allow them to match the performance of individual cards in SLI, or it wasn't the top of the line GPU being used inside the dual GPU card.
The price, again, makes perfect sense. You'll have equal performance to 2x GTX 680s, with less slots, less power consumption and a less noisy package, for the same price. Tell me again why it needs to be lower?

Stop being Nvidia advocat dude, the card is not worth 1000$, they are using 1 PCB less, and you cant say the price is normal! they are saving on costs alot by just using 1 pcb instead of 2, and also 1 fan instead of 2, 1 shraud instead of 2 etc, so no the card is not worth 1000$ it should be max 900>850.

The card is bandwidth limited, 4GB wont make any difference, with 192GB/s at that high of resolutions +1600p

i agree with previous poster!there are a lot of stuff on this card that make me hitch the wrong way!its like this card is made for doyoulookgood.com
post #65 of 186
So have they finally ditched the nf200? Pretty lame if they're still using it.
Looks like they did ...

How about tri-sli capabilities, NV finally going to allow that?
I don't see why not since it is a fully enabled gpu.
That would be icing on the already sweet cake if they did.

And the price, well Asus is probably mad, their Mars version just got shelved or we're looking at a $1500-1700 price tag eek.gif

I can't believe there is like 30 pages in 4 threads about price. The logic is so obvious.

690 costs 999$ cause:
1) They don't have enough dies to satisfy existing demand of 680, so they will not undercut themselves on that front by selling 2 GK104 dies that are higher binned for lower profit margin.
2) AMD doesn't have anything to combat it, so they plan to profit of that for as long as they can.

By the time 7990 hits 690 would get a price cut making it competitive against AMD flagship, plus by that TSMC production rates would hopefully increase allowing for enough dies to be produces to satisfy every SKU demand.

yep i agree with him,there a probability that the gtx 690 will be 999

999 is nothing compared to us, here in Norway 680's are like 750$. A 690 here will cost about 1500$.

I'm so glad I don't pay European prices. I feel for you dudes. Although my government does give me near the amount of perks so I guess it balances out?
