[TH] The Story Of How GeForce GTX 690 And Titan Came To Be - Page 5

post #41 of 47
The 690 is a piece of Art. I've had zero issues with mine. Drivers have been flawless, runs quiet and cool. Very intrigued to see what Nvidia comes up with next. They hit a home run with the gtx690.

Pretty much of them coil whine (I've had 4 myself) - cheap PCB. No voltage control. Far from perfect...

If your plan is to overclock the hell out of a gpu then a dual-gpu card is not a good choice. Always kept mine at stock. No real need to overclock it. As far as coil whine I've yet to experience it. Then again I bought mine almost a year after the 690 was released so maybe it was corrected.

Um.. the LED has an on off feature... is that really something to note... RGB LED's should be a standard in every product that contains LED's... let alone having an on/off option >_> ...

It is indeed very weird. The timing and the writing style in the article are all too interesting to just write off as a coincidence. There's purpose behind all of this. We just don't know what.

Dun dun dun!

Oh I know. It only further solidifies my opinion that TH has been an unreliable source in the pockets of nvidia for god knows how long. I haven't been able to take their "work" seriously in years.
