    ZOTAC launched its GeForce GTX 690 graphics card. Like every other GTX 690 launched till now, ZOTAC's card sticks to NVIDIA reference board design. It is an indication that NVIDIA imposed restrictions on the AIC partners to modify its design, even placing AIC brand stickers seems to be disallowed, which is a good thing because NVIDIA's design is too good to be spoiled by gaudy stickers. It is likely that ZOTAC sticks to the NVIDIA-suggested price of US $999, but to sweeten the deal, it added a bundle called Assassin's Creed 3-Game Pack, which includes Steam coupons for games from the franchise.

    Finally a real extra... a game that will bottleneck this graphics card so hard it will reach 400 atmospheres of pressure. If im not mistaken, the bottleneck is so big with this one performance will actually downscale compering to a single GTX680.
    But, still its a good 50$ worth of an extra that is sure welcome.

    Couldn't they have bundled a game that actually needs dual GPU processing like BF3? :S still, better than nothing.

    7990

    I cannot wait to see the 7990. Seems like AMD cards and beating Nvidia at ultra high multiple monitor resolutions.
