A cryptic picture that was posted on NVIDIA's GeForce Facebook page has since been said by a number of sources to be what most were hoping to be the case, a teaser for the next dual-GPU wielding bad boy in the GeForce GTX 690.

Sources have informed SweClockers that this SKU is scheduled for an imminent launch and to expect it in the week commencing April 30th, implying it will be launched by May 5th at the latest and April 30th at the earliest. Either way, it also means it would manage to beat out the competition while we await AMD's HD 7990 to arrive.

If the card does launch on April 30th, this would also have it closely follow the launch of Intel's 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge based processors a day earlier.

The GTX 690 comprises dual GK104 GPUs, featuring 3072 CUDA cores and 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Doesn't sound like we'll be waiting much longer at all before full specs and benchmark results are out! /rubs hands together in glee
