NVidia has this week introduced the world to The Kepler Twins. Sounding like a new duo of Adult Entertainment superstars the Kepler Twins are instead the foundation of the world’s fastest video card, the new King of the Über video cards.
Some say everything is better in pairs. NVIDIA must agree as the GTX 690 sees NVidia pairing two GTX 680 Kepler GPU’s into a single video card. Available May 7 for $999 USD. Expect a plethora of full reviews once released. NVidia have a firm hold on the dual and single GPU performance crowns.
The GTX 690 is a spectacular piece of hardware, with its chromium-plated aluminium frame, molded magnesium alloy fan housing, and dual vapour chamber with nickel-plated fins the card resembles a piece of industrial artwork. At the rear are three dual link DVI ports and a mini Display port, with an adaptor for HDMI, the GTX 690 is able to drive a wall of 6 monitors for that fully immersive experience.
