    framerates would show no microstutter, but thats only because the images will not be synced to their times.
    basically like this, if we are panning left or right, and a light pole is moving at 10 pixels per frame, microstutter would show it moving 10 pixels each frame, but the frame would happen at the wrong times, showing one after 25ms then 15ms then 25ms. this sounds like it would make the pole move 8 pixels then 12 then 8 and so on, while the frames would be produced every 20ms.

    it might do a good job by adding half a frames lag, but resulting in no microstutter, but still look stuttery in certain schenes, but framerates could look perfect from the chart perspective.

    (this is all my opinion)

    also its good to see why they sent a crowbar. if only the retail versions were so cool.

    Yeah that would look weird... or like you said they might lag frames on purpose to achieve an even frame output at the expense of input lag.

    If reviewers don't start addressing this aspect I will seriously rage and likely buy a gtx690, obtain a high FPS camera, and check this out myself (next to my current 6990 for comparison).

    the only way ive seen micro stutter really defeated was by not using 100% of the gpu resource. that way when one card needed to run harder, the other one relaxed a little to keep things even.

    Haha, so that is what the crowbar is for that NVIDIA sent around earlier. It's to open the box of the GTX 690

    Methinks there should be less box photos / bragging and more benchmarking.

    Heaven knows how many sites will have pretty wooden box shots and will be utterly lacking in the important multi monitor / high IQ testing...

    If anyone test with less than a Tri-Screen setup of some sort, IMO it's a waste of time. If you can drop a $1k on a card you better be running tri or at least a 30"

    I'm sure some M-ITX users would love this card. Especially because of it's 300W rating.

    Then again the price is mad, and I agree with others that a card like this is problably only for multi monitor systems consisting of 27-30" monitors.

    My GTX 680 was the most expensive pc part I have ever bought and I just can't imagine spening $999 unless I needed some serious GPU power for very large multi-monitor setup. Then again I don't like multi-monitor setups and prefer a single large monitor.

    Seriously, if you build a pc like that, a 680 single will be plenty enough.. The day i see someone with a 590-690 or 7990 CFX in this type of pc, i will laugh badly.. ( the card will cost more of the pc itself ) This is not the purpose of this type of pc. ( peoples do what they want anyway ).

    Now for different reason, ( Quad or Tri SLI-CFX ) or peoples who dont have a big tower for 2-3 cards... no problem .

    I've seen many a person with a GTX 590 and 6990 in the Silverstone SG7

    Like I said, I don't see the need.
    My overclocked GTX 680 is plenty for my system, even at 2560x1440. Even then I don't really need to overclock it since everything I own plays brilliantly.


    Speaking of Tri -sli would it be possible to use a GTX 680 and a 690?

    I remember people mixing cards liket that in Xfire.

    Nope. Unfortunately, that isn't supported in the drivers and to be honest, I don't think SLI will support that due to the layout of its interconnects.
