ASUS Releases the Dual-GPU GeForce GTX 690

ASUS unleashes its GeForce GTX 690 graphics card.

Debuting 28nm dual-GPU performance, the card features smarter fabrication, so its power demands are relatively modest for energy-conservative operation. With two GeForce GTX 680 cores mounted on the board, the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 fields a staggering 3072 CUDA cores, providing for massive computing power for graphics as well as parallel processing alongside the CPU. The core runs at 1019MHz in boost clock, while the 512-bit memory interface links the system to 4GB of 4096MHz GDDR5 video memory.

Packing a modest 300W TDP, ASUS includes the exclusive GPU Tweak graphics card tuning suite, so users can boost clock speeds, set power targets, and configure fan revolution settings to make adjustments and experiment with performance gains. Users who wish to set up an NVIDIA SLI configuration can pair two ASUS GeForce GTX 690’s for instant quad-SLI and even more massive compute capabilities.

In addition, new ultra-fast anti-aliasing technologies TXAA and FXAA help game developers and designers deliver smoother and more visually appealing experiences to rival high end professional graphics rendering.

First 28nm graphics card with two GPUs on a single PCB offers dedicated gamers the fastest, smoothest, and most detailed PC entertainment currently available

Singapore (May 3, 2012) ― the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 graphics card debuts 28nm dual-GPU performance, presenting the most powerful card of the generation thus far. It enables gaming with superior speed, smoothness, and detail. Due to smarter fabrication, its power demands are relatively modest for energy-conservative operation. This promotes easier quad-SLI setups with paired ASUS GeForce GTX 690s. ASUS continues to offer gamers the best overclocking experience with the exclusive GPU Tweak utility, which goes well together with DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2, plus technologies such as NVIDIA GPU Boost, advanced anti-aliasing (TXAA/FXAA), and Adaptive Vertical Sync.

Raw 28nm graphics processing power

The ASUS GeForce GTX 690 has two GeForce GTX 680 cores mounted on the board, fielding a massive 3072 CUDA cores and representing truly staggering computing power for graphics as well as parallel processing alongside the CPU. The core runs at 1019MHz in boost clock, while the 512-bit memory interface links the system to 4GB of 4096MHz GDDR5 video memory.

Benefits of leaner fabrication come into play

Despite all that power, the ASUS GeForce GTX 690 has a modest 300W TDP. Gamers therefore 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 buyers can easily go into boost clock speeds, set power targets, and configure fan revolution settings to make adjustments and experiment with performance gains. GPU Tweak offers built-in 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 presents the most graphics power ever available to consumers, and as such makes even better use of recent developments in software engineering. It furnishes unmatched DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.2 performance, by that guaranteeing considerable future-proofing. Users who wish to set up an NVIDIA SLI configuration can pair two ASUS GeForce GTX 690’s for instant quad-SLI and even more massive compute capabilities.

New ultra-fast anti-aliasing technologies TXAA and FXAA help game developers and designers deliver smoother and more visually appealing experiences to rival high end professional graphics rendering. Additional technologies that promote faster and more attractive gaming include NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync and hardware-based framerate metering, both ensuring games keep moving 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-screen displays via NVIDIA Surround. Its single-PCB NVIDIA 3D Vision performance sets new milestones, enabling unmitigated full HD 3D gaming.
