In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 690.

The GTX 1080 has a 780 MHz higher core clock speed but 96 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 690. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1080 manages to provide 37 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 has a 780 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 690 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 49.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1080 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 690, and so the GTX 1080 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 690 when running the latest games.

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 1080 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 690, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce GTX 690 has 63.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1080, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 690 is much better than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 690 has 3072. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6342 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 690 is 3130. The GTX 1080 having 3212 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 690.

The GTX 1080 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 690. This means that the GTX 1080 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 690.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 690 requires 300 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce GTX 690. The GeForce GTX 690 requires 120 Watts more than the GTX 1080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 690 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1080.

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by Gigabyte.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1695MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1835MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
The WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes, special fin architecture, unique blade fan design, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 3% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 6% at 3840x2160.
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.
