690 vs. 770 SC Clock Speeds

Hi there.

I was wondering, in terms of performance, which card is better?

or

http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=84735&vpn=02G-P4-2774-KR&manufacture=eVGA

It may seem like a silly question because one is so much more expensive than the other, but I noticed that the Core Clock and Boost Clock of this 690 is less than those of the GTX 770 SC.

Your thoughts?

Rgds,

    Thanks for the clarification.
  3. 690 and 770 are two different kind of beast. As long as the game supporting sli properly and have good scaling 690 can perform almost twice as fast as 770 but it also cost more than double the price of 770.

    Why would SLI come into play with the GTX 690 in gaming? Two cores on one PCB?

    Yeah exactly the software recognizes them as two cores that's why

    Yep. Exactly. The X90 moniker are reserved for nvidia dual gpu solution since their 200 series. That also explain why it is logical for 690 MSRP price to double the price of GTX680 MSRP because there were actually two GK104 inside GTX690.
