GeForce GTX 690 review

The GeForce GTX 690 comes with four display connectors, three dual-link DVI 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 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 silent which was a pleasant surprise alright.
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC review
In this article we review the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC edition review with that OC for a factory tweak. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. Overall an interesting product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
