NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 695Category: Video Cards
Posted: April 1, 2011 11:00AM
No matter that the GeForce GTX 590 just came out, nothing seems to be stopping NVIDIA. With the release of Kepler still a way's away, NVIDIA is prepping the next big thing for Fermi in the form of the GeForce GTX 695. What makes it a 695 you ask? Well, it is similar to the GTX 590 but the 695 combines three GTX 580 cores on a single PCB. That's right, this badboy is packing three GF110 GPU cores for a grand total of 1536 Cuda cores, plus 4.5GB of total memory. Overkill you say? What about the power requirements? Well, that's where it gets a bit hazy but we do know that NVIDIA has included four 8 pin PCIe power connections, which combined with the PCIe x16 slot gives you a grand total of 675 watts of power. NVIDIA isn't mentioning if there are any current power supplies capable of powering one of these cards, but perhaps we will see an NVIDIA-branded PSU when the GTX 695 comes out.
Price is yet to be determined on the GTX 695, but we do know that NVIDIA is going to push to get this card out before the end of summer.
