EVGA GeForce GTX 690 review

To get enough power to the card you will need two 8-pin power connectors to feed the card. The PCIe slot delivers 75W, the two 8-pin connectors another 300W. Of course these are theoretical figures. The two GPUs are powered by ten phase digital power controllers and another two phases are used for the memory.
Here, two photos of the GTX 690 with the fan shroud removed. You can see the two vapor chamber coolers in the upper photo and, below, the card all naked with the ICs exposed.
To the left and right are the two GPUs, in the middle we spot an PLX chip bridging the two GPUs. Surrounding the GPUs are the memory ICs and then we see all the smaller stuff, like capacitors, voltage regulators, resistors and so on.
Each GK104 uses 1536 CUDA cores alongside 128 Texture Units and 32 ROPs for a total of 3072 cores, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. Each GPU has 3.54 billion transistors embedded into it, so that's a good 7 Billion transistors at work for the GeForce GTX 690.
Oh and once powered up, on the top side of the card 'GeForce GTX' will light up as its LED is lit. A very nice looking card alright.
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.
