Default Re: GTX 690 rumored by May 5th

The tables have sure turned. I can't see how AMD can make a 7990 that outperforms a 690 when they need 6GB of RAM on the thing. Maybe they will break the power envelope and make a return to the X2 days by keeping clocks at the same as the single GPU part, with the overclocking headroom the 7970 has it's possible I guess. The 690 will still likely be the better performer. Not that I'm interested in either, dual GPU cards aren't my thing, especially at the probable prices these two will fetch!
