Our GeForce GTX 690 Has Arrived...

Over the weekend, NVIDIA announced the dual-GK104 powered GeForce GTX 690. If you missed the announcement, the details are available right here. While we’re not able to give you the full run-down on the GeForce GTX 690’s performance just yet, we did uncover one more details we wanted to share.

Last week, NVIDIA sent some pry bars out to members of the press with “For Use In Case of Zombies Or...” laser etched into the bars’ surface, adjacent to the NVIDIA claw logo. Well, we’ve just found out exact what those pry bars were for...



When the doorbell rang this morning, we weren’t greeted by a zombie apocalypse (I think that’s happening on Friday BTW). But what we thought was a GeForce GTX 690 arrived in some rather unique packaging. Our GeForce GTX 690 arrived encased in a wooden crate, branded with a cautionary warning that some “weapons grade gaming power” was enclosed within. Needless to say, that pry bar came in mighty handy, because you know we didn’t waste any time ripping that GTX 690 from its box.

Enjoy the geek porn for now, and stay tuned to HH for the full scoop on the GeForce GTX 690 in a couple of days.

Do all the 690s from nvidia come in a crate like that?

Only asking because it is a $1000 gpu.

No, they're not going to ship like that to customers. NVIDIA's just having some fun with the tech press. :)

A pretty sweet gimmick!

I can hardly wait to see what your testing reveals.

Looks like that could fit at least two Zotac ZBOXs inside that 690 :)

That card is a beast and I love that nVidia likes to have fun with things. Hope that crowbar is American made lol.

Just look at all that beautiful metal on that card. A card I can only dream of but can't wait to see what it can do and if 1 card can beat 2 680's
