Summary: NVIDIA did an extremely good job with the reference GTX 690, and albeit EVGA has nothing different to offer on the hardware side of things, it really doesn't make the card any less impressive.
Admittedly, the price tag is so steep with an MSRP at 999 USD. Prices are coming down a bit at this point, but with the limited volume available, these puppies will sell anyway. In EUR we spotted the card for 925 EUR.
Excerpt: Putting two GPUs onto a single card started off as being a bit of a strange idea. After all, the performance of these cards such as the HD3870X2 or GTX295 could never get close to that of two single cards.
