How well can the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition run games
2 May 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 346 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Mass Effect: Legendary Edition with 32 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Days Gone which is predicted to return a reasonable 48 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Resident Evil 8 which we saw getting a playable 32 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Mass Effect: Legendary Edition on the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 64FPS, M: 51FPS, H: 34FPS, U: 24FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Days Gone which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 36 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Resident Evil 8 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 24 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition we get the impression that it is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card
