EVGA GeForce GTX 690 review

The GeForce GTX 690 comes with four display connectors, three DVI (dual-link) and one mini-Display Port connector. One card will get you more than sufficient performance to play your games on three monitors.
We still receive this question a lot, but dual-link DVI does not mean you can hook up two monitors to one connector. Dual-link means double the signal, that way monitor resolutions over 1920x1200 can be supported or you could use a 120Hz monitor. So dual-link DVI means it supports high-resolution (above 1920x1200) or high-refresh rate (120Hz) monitors.
The increase in price to 999 USD for this flagship product does show in things like the cooling. The heatsink shell is made from cast aluminum and injection molded magnesium alloy. This is a great conductor of heat plus it helps out in isolating noise.
From the left and right of the fan plexi glass is being used so you can actually look into the cooler's aluminum fins. The fan sitting in the middle is outfitted with a a special design, its airflow is carefully directed in order to optimize cooling efficiency while minimizing noise causing restrictions.
The card itself is a nice dual-slot solution and the cooling is vapor chamber based, in fact the card remains fairly silent which was a pleasant surprise alright. Here the backside, there's a lot going on at the PCB, showing the complexity of the product.
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.
