[Nvidia] Performance Perfected: Introducing the GeForce GTX 690 - Page 5

In a game or two, but the reviewer said that the drivers were such rubbish that the stutter made it unplayable. SLI was slightly less raw power in a game or two, but the overall smoothness/playability was better. Not shocking.

No one has seen hide nor hair of a 7990, and I think even if one were to appear its only advantage is its 1GB larger frame buffer. Otherwise...its toast.

Take two 7970 at 1300 and i bet you 690 can' t touch them at 960 dollars. thumb.gif

the software issue is irrelevent!nidia is way more agile then amd in the software part!so take a 50% finished software from both side and nvdia will finish a season before amd!so when amd lunch nvidia will have at least 3 update done on the gpu !unless atihad the permission from nvidia to go ballistic(highly unlikely)i dont think ati can compete with nvidia!only unknown door amd might have autorised is r&d in cooling solution of the gpu tru better material!but for it to be a good idea mat will need to be 1000W/m-k + or it will be irelevent!(again i doubt it!)
amd will probably lower the price of the gpu

$999... thanks, but no thanks.

Personally I'd take two 680s over this anyway because SLI = moar epeen.

It'll be interesting to see AMD's response. I highly doubt they'd actually do this, but I'm pretty sure they could reclaim the performance crown if they used two of those rumored unreleased "Tahiti XTX" 2304SP GPUs and/or overclocked the 7990 to hell (perhaps use silicon that overclocks exceptionally well, similar to the 4890).

Your post is mostly gibberish, but I can understand the first part about software support:
I waited 6 months for Nvidia to release drivers that made me able to play the games I wanted to play while being able to run f@h last year until I swapped my 460s to a 6950. My games became more playable, I had less driver issues even after I added another card, and the only game I had issues with in 2011 was RAGE. I'll admit the driver support for the new 7000-series is a bit sketchy, but I haven't had a single issue with my 7970 either.

But I can understand that you obviously have way more experience than I have, and I was obviously using my 460s wrong. After all, Nvidia's drivers are perfect and me refusing to run BETA-drivers for more than a week before returning to WHQL-drivers is not a matter of stability and more a matter of me not doing things right.

Agreed, they've probably outdone themselves on the reference design.
