Considering that only one chip from the 690 should be better than my 7950 or somehow equal but you don't get that much FPS. I think CF 7950s would do better at 1440p, but for the price of 690 you can get trifire 7950s so yeah...
My mind is full of mess.
I know, Nvidia needs to start taking high res gaming seriously. When this build started I had no idea where it was gonna head into eventually. Whats really sad is the performance gain when you have 2 690s come together. Is it over priced, yes, is there better stuff out there at a very low price yes.
And whats even more sad is that Metro 2033 is one of those nvidia games.
Anyways tweeked some settings around and I can get around 85-90 FPS in DX9, pretty sure if I OC it a bit I can get 60 in DX11. With that said, I will admit that the 690 did loose this battle.
Makes me wonder whats the performance of this game on a single 680 as technically that is the half of 690.
And now you are tempting me to look into the 7990
