When GTX 690 was announced, NVIDIA claimed that only the best, selected GK104 chips will be mounted on GTX 690 board. So what can we expect from the most powerful card ever produced with some additional juice? The most powerful uber-card obviously, which reached unbelievable 3Dmark 11 score, beyond GTX 680 SLI range.
Overclocker used LN2 cooling along with some complicated voltage modifications. He tested his card with Core i7 3960X (@4.5GHz) processor with 16GB of DDR3 RAM (@2133).
TiN overclocked his card to 1547 MHz for core and 7336 MHz for memory. This gave him 20962 points in 3DMark Performance preset, which is almost 50% more than reference clocked card. If you wondered how fast is it, then it would take two Radeon HD 7970s clocked at 1260/7400 MHz or two GTX 680s at 1527/7132. Surprisingly card was capable of sustaining core clock of 1600 MHz, but it wasn’t stable enough.
So far he only tested dual GTX 690 configuration, but as he said, we may expect quad-sli benchmarks too.
