My System Specs

Default

Ya, it's definately one hell of a card. But, I mean, what did you expect when putting two GK104 chips on one card? Surely double the performance of a GTX680 wasn't too much to expect.

I think the biggest thing that Nvidia has achieved was getting those two cores to work at almost full power without melting everything around them. It's a testament to Kepler, and more importantly, to that beautiful heatsink.

Makes me wish I have a spare few grand laying around to build up a 3960x machine c/w a GTX690.
