I'd get another 7970 but I don't think my 750X Seasonic will take it, besides I havnt heard good thing about x-fire...thoughts?>

not worth it. gtx 790 is right around the corner along with new titan black. Prices will drop own big time....

I could really use your help. I got a "broken" GTX 690 for free and it seems so close to working, but it always crashes. This is an NVIDIA refrence board, so no chance of RMA'ing it. While playing any sort of graphics intensive game, the card will randomly stop outputting video. You can hear the game still running in the background, but just the card stopped displaying. When this happens, you can also hear the card fan spin way down. I have never seen it run higher than 84c, which I believe is in spec. I have tried the card on multiple machines and power supplies ranging from 650w (the min for this card) up to a 1000 watt PSU. The card will successfully complete a pass of 3dmark tests, but then have the problem the next time you try and run it. I have attempted to flash many different BIOS' from ASUS, EVGA and stock nvidia, along with the PLX and still see the same issues.

My question to you guys, is this a known issue with this card which could be fixed with some BIOS tweaks? Would down-clocking the memory or lowering voltage or improving cooling resolve this problem? I have tried this type of stuff with MSI after burner without luck. I also tried throwing it in the oven as a last resort. The card still works as well as it did before the bake, still displaying the exact same issues.

Any help is appreciated guys.

" MemtestG80 and MemtestCL are a software-based testers to test for "soft errors" in GPU memory or logic for NVIDIA CUDA-enabled or OpenCL-enabled (of any manufacturer) GPUs. They use a variety of proven test patterns (some custom and some based on Memtest86) to verify the correct operation of GPU memory and logic. They are useful tools to ensure that given GPUs do not produce "silent errors" which may corrupt the results of a computation without triggering an overt error.

Hello everybody,

I am now officially an owner of a working 690 gtx. Purchased one couple of months ago for acustom rig, and just finished the build very late. Then i realized card was not working properly. It is a asus 690 gtx with a xspc watercooler and a custom loop.
Thanks to a very nice user from hardwareluxx he got it working. Seems the problem was that it had the uefi bios with 2 different bioses on it. Now he got it working with standard bios from evga....
As of now, i would like to get out everything i can from this card by overclocking it. With afterburner, i could get 1228 stable with no voltage mods whatsoever.
Now since i havent been into gaming for many years, i really am a little bit out of ideas on where to start... Have played a bit with keplertweaker and flashing but for now, i am stuck with max voltage of 1.175
Can anyone give me advice or maybe make a custom bios for me? This friend of mine who fixed it told me to ask if anyone could check the bios since he didnt exactly figure out what was the problem. I COULD NOT Flash skyn3ts custom bios files on it because of an invalid board id...even with override. One of my cards has sp8, the other sp16(same board,not 2 690gtx).


Update:

I have modded my bios to 1.21V 175 power limit and getting stable results at 1202 mhz and 3499mhz for memory...
If i go beyond 1202 mhz it will not actually raise my core clock (at least thats wat afterburner osd shows).
Why is that?

I have been looking at these 690 cards on ebay for a new build I'm starting. I can probably get one for under $700. Right now I have 7970's crossfire and a single 2560x1440 display. My goal is to get as close as possible to the performance of the crossfire setup using a single card in the itx case (yes it fits). I guess my question is do you think I'd be wiser to go with a 780ti ($700) or R9 290x ($550) The card will be fully water cooled so OC is a definite option. Truthfully I am really leaning toward the GTX. Thanks for any thoughts you can share.

WOW thats a lot of power over there tongue.gif very nice, they should have done this gfx with 3GB VRAM...
post #5210 of 5564
I know people keep harping about VRAM, but I have been using these since I am doing a rebuild with my Titans for surround 120 hz/3d. 690s have been great for all games on my 1440p, and asus 120/140 hz. I have multiple Titans for surround, and I can tell you whatever magic Nvidia did with 690s as far as dual gpu sli goes, I have been very pleased with it. I have never had an issue with quads either. May be this one of the reasons I have not been motivated to finish my muti Titan build, other than being busy at work (or may be it is my excuse for being lazy. tongue.gif).
