what a shocking expecting price $999
Intel has been charging $999 for processors since the dawn of time. I don't see the shock value.
Who in their right mind would buy this?!
Better off buying 2 680s. I'm certainly interested in what ATI is going to do now with the 7990.
Got one sitting here!! Paid $450 shipped for it............................
LOL, just kidding!!
I just dont see the point ... dont get me wrong I want one .. who dont.
But we are getting too the point hardware has really out lvled the software. The only thing the 690 is good for is higher benchmarks ..and if you are going for that .. you are going too want 2x (2000.00)
Why Nvidia isn't releasing the lower GPUs first? like AMD did.
The market for these high end cards is so small compared to other segments.
Nvidia has the most powerful GPU, the 680, it doesn't need to show off... Well, until AMD release their dual GPU in a card (a.k.a 7990) next month.
Also, I read on another site that Nvidia is having hard time to supply the 680s (because of demand), and basically as the 690 is 2x680 bind together, supply will be even worse.
hardcore looking card and also a hardcore price
Whyyyy sooo late?
If this was a race then i got left at the starting line, damn 1K for a GPU
I hear NVIDIA will be sending out cards this week. We have a national holiday on Tuesday, so it might take a day longer to get to me.
Rest assured, I'll work as quickly as possible, and as thoroughly as always, to get you the review.
(No NDA this time, so I expect some sites will post quick articles just to get the extra traffic)
Because today's is a textbook paper-launch. Nobody will post reviews today, other than the performance numbers NVIDIA gave.
You pay more taxes. So it makes sense.
Anyway nice! I didn't even know it was due so soon. Interestinger and interestinger.
So, you mean...this is a preview.
I really like the way this card looks. The windows in the heatsink are an interesting idea. I am not impressed with the dual 8-pin though.
Less than a preview. The graphs with performance figures are NVIDIA's.
Found this on nvidia's facebook page:
Very happy to see Nvidia and ATI pushing the boundaries of PC graphics. This time of course is Nvidia leading the way in efficiency.
Reminded me of the 4870 underdog win. History is repeating again.
I hope Nvidia and ATI continue putting money into GPU business so that we will be less dependant on CPU power.
I've always love companies that steps forward. Nvidia is a good example where they put great efforts to aid software developers to build their software that make use of Nvidia hardware. I mean, people might hate TWIMTBP titles but ATI should have done similar stuff to aid dev to make use of their hardware.
Instead, I think ATI prefer to adapt their drivers to suit a particular game after the game has been opt for Nvidia card. Perhaps it is more economical, but that just means ATI will always trail Nvidia. That said, DX11's strict requirements meant these two cards are very similar in performance, so ATI can always catch up to Nvidia with driver update.
The most shocking thing for me is that there are still people out there that find those prices normal and acceptable and they even try to defend the companies that try to get our money with those price strategies.
I think 500-600 dollars/euros should be the price limit for the top of the line VGA cards.
I would expect realistically for the 7990 and 690 to duke it out at $870-920
This thing is a complex beast so I think the price is if not good value it's "ok" in my book. I don't have to buy them.
I mean I get your point but on the other hand these things are BEASTS. They do cost a lot of money to make, especially at an early stage. I don't know how good the production run of the 680 have been though so I can't really comment on that..
Get the crowbar ready W1zzard!
I can bet you they can sell this card at $600 and still make a LOT of money.
1st they should make the GTX 680 more available
i pray you joke,im italian and if you make the right conversion the price is 999€ for the shit iva at 21% here in italy its the shittest thing in the world have the same price for tax like mafia
MAN! I would kill to see some BOINC/Folding@Home crunching numbers from this monster!
