Why not the 690 race?


because 2 670 > 690

Who cares about saving 10 cents on your electric bill, or the extra slot that would not get used anyway..

Now the 690 would be the card of choice if I were going with a Micro ITX build in a tiny case and wanted graphical power, which after seeing those one cases.. I'm almost tempted to just sell my system and build one of them for the LOLs

^so far scaling on these cards past two way SLI gets worse and worse. also, 4 690's is 8 gpus and such a configuration is not supported in SLI.

That I dunno, I never looked into it. lol, I would not sli 3 of them, for sure if you needed that much power in a real world application the 2gb vram would definitely be a bottleneck. Unless you're just running some unoptimized pos on 3 displays than sure..

yea three is the limit. nvidia said something about going up to 4 with new drivers, but the vram will limit you before the card's brute strength so it's pointless. also, the scaling is still crappy in 90% of games.
