The GeForce GTX 690 was a enthusiast-class graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2012. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK104 graphics processor, in its GK104-355-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GK104 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 294 mm² and 3,540 million transistors. GeForce GTX 690 combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 1536 shading units, 128 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs per GPU. NVIDIA has placed 4,096 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 2,048 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 915 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1019 MHz, memory is running at 1502 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 draws power from 2x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 300 W maximum. Display outputs include: 3x DVI, 1x mini-DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 690 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 279 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 999 US Dollars.
