I heard it comes with a free pocket nuclear power plant...
Ha...my Voodoo 2 + Matrox Mystique will bring this to falllll.......
That is.....on the power draw site......
but it will an overclocked GTX690, anyway it depend how much this monster overclock range.
I'm kind of surprised they didn't wipe off the greasy fingerprints before taking a picture of the backside of the card.
Can't wait for reviews to see how it stacks up against a GTX 690!!!
man that thing is WILD !
FYI, every Mars and Ares cards are dual GPU
The original Mars was a dual GTX285
Thanks! I couldn't remember.. hehehe or I thought I remember it as single.. but yea you are right and the special thing about the dual GTX285 was that it was exactly that, the GTX295 has the memory volume and frequency of two GTX 260 cards yet the raw shader processor horsepower of two GeForce GTX 280 cards., but not GTX285's. I loved my GTX285.. hehehe I'm not sure and maybe you can tell me, but the GTX690 is it 2x GTX680's?
The GTX 295 (I had one) was two GTX 275's. The GTX 295 came out first and they released the 275 afterwards as single cards - they went head to head with the 4890's I think.
And yes, the GTX 690 IS two GTX 680's but downclocked a little.
be right back...need to change my underwear...
Hopefully they'll do double vram this time. There isn't much they can do to differentiate as the 690 is a lot more overclock friendly than the 590.
who would buy this card when 690 is available
So you can say you own Mars...
I hope this is much faster than the 690.
I love that backplate.
I also wanna see this compared to the 7970 X2's that are coming out in terms of power consumption.
People that want more powah than a 690!
Also, this card comes with 8GB VRAM.
As a 690 owner I see only one advantage over what I got now: the red/black ROG color scheme will fit with my Rampage board.
But for the price of this I'd rather get a 2nd 690 and stick with the green lit GEFORCE logo
Haha, who cares?! I have my Arc Reactor ready and kickin'
you did wrong quote, yeah like as i said before, i bet no one here moaning about their power efficiency, but if it was amd cards, i'm sure it'd be different..
Would of been cooler if it had dual link for SLI, So 3 cards could be linked not just 2 like the 690.
There is no driver support for more than 4 GPUs and even with tri or quad configurations lots of problems arise...
If the card has 4GB per GPU, then it's a very interesting offer. Put two of those in SLI and you are ready to travel through space to Mars.
So this will cost more than 1500$ ????
It will be at least 20% faster than the reference gtx 690 and with a monstruous overclocking capability. Simply look at the fight between gtx 590 and mars2. Mars3 will probably(99%) dominate everything and i say it from the eyes of an ati(now amd ) fan.
Nvidia said nope, maximum voltage allowed on Kepler is 1.175v.
