At the NVIDIA Game Festival in Shanghai, China, NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang announced the GeForce GTX 690 graphics card. Hailed as the world’s new fastest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690 harnesses the power of two Kepler-based GPUs equipped with a total of 3,072 CUDA cores. NVIDIA claims that the GeForce GTX 690 almost doubles the frame rates of a single-GPU GeForce GTX 680, and is more power-efficient and quieter than a pair of GeForce GTX 680 graphics cards in an SLI configuration. The GeForce GTX 690 ousts the GeForce GTX 590 as the fastest dual-GPU graphics card from NVIDIA.

Not only powerful on the inside, the GeForce GTX 690 graphics card is also compelling on the outside, sporting a trivalent chromium-plated aluminum exterior. For enhanced heat dissipation, NVIDIA has also equipped the card with a fan housing made from a thixomolded magnesium alloy. Apart from the center-mounted fan, the card’s cooling assembly also comes with dual vapor chambers, and a nickel-plated finstack.

Anticipated to carry a lofty price of US$ 999 (PhP 42,238 or SGD 1,236), the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 will be initially offered in limited quantities starting May 3, 2012 through add-in partners which include ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, and Zotac. NVIDIA will expand its availability on May 7, 2012.
