Nvidia uncorks world's fastest video card, the GeForce GTX 690

Well, folks, the mysterious "it" is finally here. Today at the GeForce LAN and Nvidia Gaming Festival event in Shanghai, China, Nvidia pulled the curtains back on what should be the fastest graphics card the world has seen to date. The GeForce GTX 690 will feature dual GK104 chips, just like those used in the GeForce GTX 680. Two of them together on a single card will team up to deliver roughly twice the theoretical peak performance of a single GTX 680.
Nvidia Corp's quarterly revenue and outlook were ahead of low Wall Street estimates on better-than-expected sales of its latest graphics chips, sending its shares up 9 percent.
The chipmaker reported strong demand for its newly launched chips for desktop computers and contract wins for its Tegra smartphone chips but said revenue and profit is still being limited by supply constraints and macro economic issues.
The revenue surprise came off very low expectations as Nvidia had warned in February of weak sales linked to capacity constraints and new competition in cellphone chips as a big customer became a competitor.
Linus Torvalds tells Nvidia to go forth and multiply
