15 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 690 SLI 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. GeForce GTX 690 SLI is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 690 SLI runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 774 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 690 SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 103 FPS, Medium: 81 FPS, High: 55 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We proceeded to look at Assassins Creed: Valhalla to see how that compared and predict that it will return a playable 25 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 79 FPS, Medium: 62 FPS, High: 42 FPS and Ultra: 30 FPS. Next we have Assassins Creed: Valhalla running on GeForce GTX 690 SLI which is predicted to get L: 38FPS, M: 32FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 19FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Valorant gets L: 1108FPS, M: 873FPS, H: 588FPS, U: 420FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 690 SLI running at 1440p is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

GeForce GTX 690 SLI Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 690 SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 690 put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce GTX 690 to know more about its chip.
SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to around 43% better than a single GeForce GTX 690 performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce GTX 690. Expect this combination to draw up to 600 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
