Rumors about GeForce 690 and 670




NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 Launched


NVIDIA today announced the GeForce GTX 690, the world's fastest consumer graphics card -- with a bold industrial design to match. Powered by dual Kepler architecture-based GeForce GPUs, the GTX 690 is meticulously designed -- inside and out -- to deliver the most refined, elegant and smooth PC gaming experience possible.


The surprise announcement was made by NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang during his keynote address at the NVIDIA Game Festival in Shanghai, which is being attended by more than 6,000 gamers from across China.




Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 Specifications:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670


Here is the first picture of an NVIDIA reference design GeForce GTX 670. For the most part, its design will resemble that of reference design GTX 680. The card pictured below is said to have had Leadtek branding, which later got removed. GeForce GTX 670 is carved out of 28 nm GK104 silicon by disabling one of the card's eight SMX units, resulting in a CUDA core count of 1344. Its clock speeds are lower than those of the GTX 680, with around 950 MHz core base clock, and core boost clock a little over 1 GHz. It features 2 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The latest price speculation puts it at US $399-$429.







Based on the Nvidia GK104 (3.54 billion transistors on 294mm ² 28mn chip area)

DirectX 11.1, Kepler architecture

4 Raster Engines (GPC)

7 shader clusters (SMX)

1344 (1D) shader units

112 texture units (TMUs)

32 raster operation units (ROPs)

256-bit DDR memory interface

2 GB of GDDR5 memory configuration

Chip clock: 900 MHz or something more

Memory clock: unknown, assumed ~ 2500 MHz

PCI Express 3.0 (backwards compatible with PCI Express 1.x and 2.0)

Estimated TDP ~ 160 watts

Wow that's a monster of a card. I would love to have one but that price is almost half of my current pc
