Wrong. It's a sli, no matter what type it is, and the rules are the same. Every gpu in a sli work on the same data at the same time, so every chip must have a copy of this data in its vram for easy access. The sli bridge only coordinates the final data flow of every graphics card. (in fact the 690 is surclassed for 4K gaming for low memory)
That only applies to bridged SLI. not single silicon dual GPUs.
The VRAM available on the gtx 690 is incorrect. The real memory is 2Gb not 4Gb. This is because in sli the memory isn't summed, remains the same as the single card.
The VRAM is the only thing holding me back from getting the 780 Ti. More and more games are needing more memory, and I want to future proof my rig as much as possible, 3GB is just not going to be enough.
780 Ti is probably the better choice for now. The only true negative I see is less VRAM, but 3GB is still more than enough.
I think I will stay with my Evga factory Superclocked 780 TI, since it's about 15% overclocked (1007 base clock)
