[VC] BioStar’s GeForce GT 630/640 - A Budget Version of GeForce GTX 690 - Page 4

post #31 of 41
I was gonna say, If this was a dual GPU 640 I'd be disappointed. 2x640 with 1GB DDR3 each would probably not be able to beat a single 640 with 1GB GDDR5 in most applications. Those cards are so ridiculously memory crippled.

Well that was anti-climatic, for a moment I thought that that was the smallest dual gpu card I've ever seen
Explains why there were no under the hood pictures at source

Disappointing, this doesn't deserve any attention, nothing special

Unless if you're using a mid-range card (such as a 650), the PhysX card will bottleneck your computer.

Wish they made a cooler for the 660 that looks like the 690's.

4 in SLI packed into a 650d would just look adorable.

Yeah, I thought they put two 640's in that little card, which would be neat.
The article set me straight. They're single GPU cards with an overkill cooler that looks like a small 690.
