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.

already speculating and theirs no benchmark or review, man i tell you about airheads thumb.gif

It has a pretty nice metallic look to it.

Indeed, IMHO it looks sweet. I love the fact you can see the heatsinks.

I think it's actually entirely made of metal... except around the fan. That's some other material. I can't remember what it was called from the live stream.

Gentlemen - please maintain a level of decency when posting and keep the name calling out of posts. Indirect or directly at one another name calling is not the way to carry ourselves on OCN. Let's keep to the topic at hand. State your opinion and then move on. Naturally others may not feel the same way or share your view and it's ok to respond with a mature reply and at times even better to allow others to express their view and let it go no further.

Let's not have a moderator close this thread if possible.

Thanks. smile.gif

On topic - we'll have to wait and see how this will shake up and how it compares when AMD launches it's response. We're all speculating and arguing over something that can't be proven either way and is unproductive.

From what Anandtech has stated it looks like the 690 will come to 91% to 95% of the performance of two 680's. This by far is much better than the 590 version came to with two 580's.

It's also promising that the over clocking will be at a greater percentage taken the fact that instead of 4 power phases like the vanilla 680's, the 690 will carry a robust 5 power phases per side for 10 total.

The limiting of voltage cap will also ensure there will be no way to over volt these cards and we will not see one fried 690 as a result. When the 590's launched there was originally no feature to keep irresponsible over clockers from going over board and damaging their GPU's as a result of it. We'll have dynamic over clocking / over volting going on behind the scenes for our GPU Boosts.

I'm speculating that - yes - this dual GPU is the best GPU launched from any other previous dual GPU Nvidia has produced. To speculate how it compares to a card that hasn't even had a paper launch is a failed discussion. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that AMD's dual GPU answer will most likely be comparable as so far the 7970 & 680's have been gaming. Nvidia has made a great dual GPU this time around and the nostalgia of the failed 590's launch shouldn't carry over to discussion about this upcoming release on May 3rd. Hard to argue on either side of the fence right now because as consumers we've been given good comparable video cards and now that Nvidia was able to respond with the 680's we've seen AMD's monopoly pricing curbed within 3 weeks of launch. Consumers win with good competition. thumb.gif

Except that they do. New Zealand.

So no, AMD won't really have an answer for the GTX 680/690 until their next-gen 8000 series is out. Nvidia has done with Kepler what they did with G80/G92...

Because they always have?

If Nvidia really wanted to start putting nails into AMD's coffin, they could release this for $850-900 and call it a day....
It's absolutely confirmed. Unless Nvidia lied to everyone?

Then comes the day when the ATI 7990 retakes the throne.

Why are people saying that the 7990 will beat the 690? Last time I checked 680SLI > 7970CFX and the 690 would appear to pretty much be full fledged 2x 680. AMD will also have a tougher time fitting 2 GPUs in an acceptable power envelope.

Just imagine the GTX690 with aftermarket waterblocks. Overclock each core to GTX680 or greater levels and call it a day.
