Meet Nvidia's New Flagship Card, the $999 GeForce GTX 690

Capping off Nvidia's tease from earlier in the week, the company has taken the wraps off the GeForce GTX 690, which will be out on May 3. Price? Oh, a mere $999.

Calling it their new "flagship" card, Nvidia reckons performance from the dual-Kepler GPU -packing card equals that of two GTX 680s slung together in SLI.

It also looks pretty badass, with an exterior made from cast aluminium. Specs are as follows:

CUDA Cores: 3072
Base Clock: 915 MHz
Boost Clock: 1019 MHz
Memory Configuration: 4GB / 512-bit GDDR5
Memory Speed : 6.0 Gbps
Power Connectors: 8-pin + 8-pin
TDP: 300W
Outputs: 3x DL-DVI
Mini-DisplayPort: 1.2
Bus Interface: PCI Express 3.0
