I've been looking and looking, and I can't find any GTX 690's in stock anywhere.
Actually -- that's not true. When a site does say they have it, the order will invariably become "back-ordered" the next day. The only legit 690 that I've seen appears to be on Amazon, and it's selling for $2000, which is just silly.
Supposedly this graphics card came out on May 3. Why is it so difficult to find? I'm willing to plunk down the retail price of $1000, but I really don't want to go too much higher.
$2,000 lol. The bad news is that Nvidia was receiving bad yields from TSMC. The good news is I read an article saying that TSMC was going to be giving Nvidia priority to help them get caught up with demand.
