In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Superclocked 12GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 690.

The GeForce GTX 690 has a 180 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 224 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 690. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 118.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 690. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 690 has a 180 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX Titan, but the GTX Titan has 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 690. As a result, the GTX Titan exhibits a 12 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 690. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX Titan was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 690, and so the GTX Titan is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 690.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX Titan has 8192 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 690, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX Titan also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX Titan has 288 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 690, which means that the memory performance of the GTX Titan is massively better than the GeForce GTX 690.

The GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Superclocked 12GB Edition has 5760 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 690 has 3072. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX Titan is 5270 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 690 is 3130. The GTX Titan having 2140 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX Titan delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 690.

The GeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Superclocked 12GB Edition requires 375 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 690 requires 300 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 700 Watts for the GTX Titan and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce GTX 690. The GTX Titan requires 75 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 690 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX Titan may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 690.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX Titan Z EVGA Superclocked 12GB Edition is a special edition of the enthusiast GeForce GTX Titan Z.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box from 705MHz to 732MHz while its boost clock is now of 915MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so both GeForce GTX Titan Black in SLI and Radeon R9 295X2 are still faster.
GeForce GTX 690 is a dual-GPU graphics card solution of two GeForce GTX 680 (not SLI) and part of the 600 Series released by NVIDIA in 2012.
As usual and a hindrance of dual-GPU graphics cards, the clock frequencies had to be reduced. However, NVIDIA managed to almost double-cross this problem by developing Turbo Boost technology that sets the GPU's core clock from 915 to 1019MHz. The other specs, such as the number of cores, memory speed, and memory bandwidth per GPU are the same on both cards.
The Performance is mind-blowing and indicated for gamers that use demanding technologies, such as Tesselation, paired with extreme resolutions and on games already Very Demanding from the start, such as Metro 2033 and The Witcher 2. GeForce GTX 690 is less expensive and energy consuming than GTX 680 put in Dual SLI.
