When multiple companies are selling essentially the same product under their respective brand names, they have to try every way possible to sway buyers. In the case of EVGA’s version of the GeForce GTX 690 graphics card, the latest ploy is something shiny--an LED controller utility that lets you adjust the brightness of the “GeForce GTX” logo on the card itself. Whenever you actually get your hands on your own EVGA GeForce GTX 690, you can download the utility and use it to increase or decrease the brightness of the logo. If you employ EVGA’s Precision X overclock tool,... Read more...

If you haven’t yet read our coverage of NVIDIA’s insane GeForce GTX 690 graphics card, go do it now. Seriously. The thing is a monster, essentially a pair of SLI’d 680s in one package. It has 3,072 CUDA cores, 915MHz/1019MHz base/boost clock, 6008MHz memory clock, 4GB total GDDR5, and a smokin’ hot aluminum and magnesium body. And now, you can configure a number of custom PCs with the GTX 690, as Origin PC, CyberpowerPC, and MAINGEAR have all let us know that the card is available on some of their systems. CybwerPowerPC offers the GTX 690 in its Fang III, Zeus, Gamer Xtreme,... Read more...
After testing the GeForce GTX 680 last month, it was practically a foregone conclusion that a dual-GPU powered graphics card based on the same GK104 GPU was coming down the pipeline. The GK104 at the heart of the GeForce GTX 680 was able to best AMD’s current flagship GPU more often than not in our testing, and it did so while consuming less power and with a smaller chip die size. If NVIDIA could stick two of their previous-generation, much larger and more power hungry, GF110 chips onto a single card with the GeForce GTX 590, doing the same with the GK104 would come as no surprise. As... Read more...
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... Read more...
