2 Nvidia EVGA GTX 670's FTW in SLI
Nvidia GTX 690 officially revealed
Today Nvidia officially revealed the GTX 690 - The fastest graphics card on the planet that boasts 3072 CUDA cores, 512-bit 4GB GDDR5 memory, has a TDP of 300 watts and carries a MSRP of $999.
Seems like AMD has their work cut out for them to beat this monster, only way I could seem them doing it is by undercutting the price.
Reviews should pop-up everywhere as the card nears availability on May 3rd in limited quantities and then May 7th will come with more availability in larger quantities.
Might have to pick this up, really tempting but the 700-series could end up beating this card when it comes out at the end of the year...

AMD Radeon HD 6770M/Intel HD 3000 switchable
I think if AMD can put out the 7990 at $850 or less and still have 90% of the 690's performance, they'll have a winner. But it's still a tossup. Either way, I'm waiting for the prices on a 7950 or 7870 to drop a little more before I build my next desktop with one.
