The product reviewed today originates from EVGA it is a 100% reference model though. Let's start off with packaging. Simple, dark, we like that.
once opened up the GTX 690 appears. The all to familiar card is 11-inches long, that's give or take 28cm in the metric system. Though not the longest card in the book, please do make sure you have plenty of space inside your chassis. There is no EVGA branding on the product whatsoever.
Included in the bundle are the card, the regulars like converters manual, driver CD but also two 6-pin to 8-pin power headers. Nicely sleeved in red which looks great if you use them. Included as well is a posted, which we used to photograph on.
Where the GeForce GTX 680 has a 1006MHz Base Clock and 1058MHz Boost Clock the GeForce GTX 690 clocks in at 915 / 1019Mhz speeds.
If we rotate the card a tiny bit we can see one SLI connector, yup -- that means two cards for quad-SLI GPU mode is supported. With the card already having two GPUs you thus can literally activate four GPUs. NVIDIA however has never really recommended and actively supported quad-SLI. But for a handful of benchmarks and sheer e-peen, it will work fine.
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC review
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC aka SuperClocked edition. as the name implies it is already factory overclocked for you with a 1046 MHz baseclock that can boost towards 1111 MHz.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC review
We have another GeForce GTX 660 Ti review for you today as we'll put the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from EVGA to the test, it's their factory clocked version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked (SC) version.So it isn't hard to understand that the factory overclocked GeForce 660 Ti SKUs will run fairly close to the GeForce GTX 670 (reference clocked) and maybe Let's have a peek.
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified with EVBOT review
We'll test the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified today. A product that is 100% customized from PCB to cooling. Software voltage regulation works, but obviously as well is limited to that 1.175V. EVGA however does have an alternative for the Classified model as tested today, you can hook up a small piece of hardware to it called EVBot, which controls the voltages directly at hardware level, and thus bypassing the NVAPI software limitation. 1400 MHz, here we come.
