ASUS GeForce GTX 690 Dual-GPU Graphics Card Announced
ASUS announced the 28nm dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690 graphics card on a single PCB, offering PC enthusiasts and gamers the fastest, smoothest PC entertainment experience currently. A new energy efficient architecture helps to provide class leading power efficiency while providing tremendous performance. ASUS continues to offer gamers the best overclocking experience with the exclusive GPU Tweak utility, allowing users to push the fastest graphics card in the world to the next level of performance. Enthusiasts are able to tweak and tune all relevant parameters with ease.
Raw 28nm graphics processing power
The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 features two GeForce GTX 680 cores, fielding a massive 3072 CUDA cores that offers truly staggering computing power for graphics as well as parallel processing alongside the CPU. The cores run up to 1019MHz in boost clock mode, while the 512-bit memory interface links the system to 4GB of 4096MHz GDDR5 video memory.
Benefits of leaner fabrication
Despite all that power, the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 has a modest 300W TDP. Gamers can tap greater processing capacity while conserving energy thanks to efficient 28nm manufacturing, thus lowering electricity bills and contributing to more environmentally-responsible gaming.
Intuitive graphics controls and tuning with GPU Tweak
ASUS once again includes the exclusive GPU Tweak graphics card tuning suite in the box. Overclocking-inclined enthusiasts or gamers can easily boost clock speeds, set power targets, and configure fan operating parameters and policies; all this and more is accessible in the new and friendly interface. GPU Tweak offers built-in safe guards to ensure all modifications are safe, maintaining optimal stability and card reliability. The utility also provides a convenient on-screen monitoring widget and live driver/BIOS updates to ensure the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 remains up to date.
Moving closer to complete gaming immersion
The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 offers the most graphics power available to consumers and provides unmatched DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2 performance. Users who wish to set up an NVIDIA SLI configuration can pair two ASUS GeForce GTX 690's for instant quad-SLI allowing massive compute capabilities or unmatched gaming performance.
New ultra-fast anti-aliasing technologies TXAA and FXAA help game developers and designers deliver smoother and more visually appealing experiences that rival high-end professional graphics rendering. Additional technologies like NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync and hardware-based frame rate metering ensures games move at an optimized pace with no slowdowns.
The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 supports NVIDIA GPU Boost for immediate auto clock speed adjustments as needed, and easily powers four displays via NVIDIA Surround. NVIDIA 3D Vision performance sets new milestones, enabling unmitigated full HD 3D gaming thanks to the power of the GeForce GTX 690.
