Unless you are playing your games on four 30" screens I doubt anyone needs that much power. I only paid over $200 three times. When the first 3DFX came out and then for Geforce2. And then my 8800gtx. This one blew up and I replaced it with a $150 price range card. It's more than enough to play 80% of the games that come out. Better update to cheaper mid range products more often than pay big bucks and update less. This way you always have up to date architecture and improvements. Better have the card that will have the power of this dual card in the next generation. It will be cheaper and less power consuming. Most people don't need this power now but when they need that much power they will have a card that has the latest improvements.
At the same time it all goes down to how much you can afford to spend on graphics.

I don't think I could ever pay $1000 for a vid card. That's just silly.

I have serious problems paying $300-$400 for a video card. I think I paid $400 once, but I doubt I'll do it again.

All depends on how they are mated, usually only improves performance at best 60-70%.

Seemingly supports your view, but keep in mind that scaling for a gpu-limited circumstance (which is effectively all that matters, Heaven + BF3 for ex.) is 78%+, reaching 90% for optimized games. SLI/Crossfire has come a long way.

I'm still laughing at the $1000 price...


and yet nvidia will laugh all the way to the bank when they sell out the day they're released.

680's are all sold out on newegg.

That Tech Report Nvidia 690 story is one of the most biased pieces of nonsense I have seen in a while. I would have to question how much Nvidia paid the writer to do the story.

Just because you double the graphics cpu does not mean you will double the speed. All depends on how they are mated, usually only improves performance at best 60-70%. Also the limited memory is a concern.

Always good to see the GPU envelope pushed though.
