Looking for a smooth driver for my Asus gtx 690 that doesn't include micro stuttering. I've heard Nvidia driver 331.40 is still the best. Downloading now

I've been offered a str8 trade of a 690 for my 780 Lighting.

I game at 2560X1440 but I don't foresee any VRAM issues going from 3GB to 2GB.

Do you guys think this trade makes sense or is it absolutely nuts considering the stout engendering behind the lighting ?

Currently running a Silverstone FT03 case so within my given space constraints a dual GPU card does make sense.

It all depends if your going to add another 780 in sli later on. A 780 with custom water setup should easily outdo a 690. Im sure the 780 can be volt modded like 690 can through MSI Afterburner.

So only if your gonna push it past the 690 and intend on putting another in sli otherwise your undercutting yourself.

Stock 690 beats 780.
Watercooled and volt modded 780 beats a watercooled and volt modded 690 ( I think).My 690 is at 1267mhz on the core, i think the 780 could beat this. No point going sli with 690 as 2gb vram will be hit sooner in more games within next 12 months. I could be wrong on that however.

For 3k they can keep there Titan Z.
For 3k id want something even more powerful than what Titan Z is for that kinda money.

The titan z will fit perfectly in my x51 case. Finally a worthy upgrade to my 690

Anybody spending 3K on a GPU would have a case built to fit it.

Well, the 690 is starting to fade away into history like everything else does...but I'm still rocking mine for one more rebuild. Still got plenty of power for what I do. smile.gif

Been running really well on 332.21, when I upgraded to the latest drivers switching between SLI on and SLI off had HUGE issues for me (often needing a remove/reinstall of the driver with driver sweeper etc).

Just curious, I have been following this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1472671/samsung-4k-1ms-monitor-754-it-has-begun/470 and I have 2 x GTX 690s. Does anyone have a similar configuration hooked up to a 4K monitor and is it good or bad?

Nvidia GeForce 337.50 with 690GTX Benchmarks

3DMark Benchmark with an Intel 8 Core Xeon Processor runs @ 3,6Ghz vs an older Nvidia Driver 331.65. IceStorm was buggy, the 690 GTX running at idle clock speeds.

Firestrike Result Comparison:

R331.65 = 12116P
R337.50 = 12306P +1.5%

CloudGate Result Comparison:

R331.65 = 37667P
R337.50 = 37742P +0.19%

IceStorm Result Comparison:

R331.65 = 145075P
R337.50 = 139482P -3.8%
