Lightbulb "All Inclusive": Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 2x2 GB Super Graphics Card Review (Xbit Labs)


I would like to specifically stress superb energy-efficiency of the new GeForce GTX 690. As we have just seen, a system equipped with one dual-GPU Nvidia graphics accelerator consumes about 112 W less under peak operational load than a system with a pair of slightly overclocked AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards. I doubt that the owners of graphics cards like that ever pay attention to their power bills, but Nvidia’s advantage here is beyond obvious. Moderate level of generated noise will also be a pleasant bonus for the owners of these graphics cards. Of course, we were truly impressed with the unique packaging and an enclosed prybar: Nvidia’s out-of-the-box PR move has definitely been extremely successful. Keep up such creativity, guys!
