Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced the latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690, in his keynote address at the NVIDIA Game Festival in Shanghai.
NVIDIA provided further information about the card in a press release and claims the new card’s performance is “almost identical” to two GTX 680′s harnessed in SLI – but quieter, cooler and more energy efficient, as the heat and noise of two Kepler GPUs in one card is minimised by evaporative heat sinks and specially designed fans.
