How well can the GeForce GTX 690 SLI run games
14 Nov 2019 - 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 2019. 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 851 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 Death Stranding and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 96 FPS, Medium: 76 FPS, High: 51 FPS and Ultra: 37 FPS. We proceeded to look at Cyberpunk 2077 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a playable 37 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Death Stranding will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 73 FPS, Medium: 58 FPS, High: 39 FPS and Ultra: 28 FPS. Next we have Cyberpunk 2077 running on GeForce GTX 690 SLI which is predicted to get L: 73FPS, M: 58FPS, H: 39FPS, U: 28FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order gets L: 73FPS, M: 58FPS, H: 39FPS, U: 28FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 690 SLI running at 1440p is certainly a viable option for these higher gaming resolutions. Remember that if you suffer some 1440p FPS drops the you can usually tweak modern game graphics settings until you get a near High graphics setting experience with this Graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 SLI in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 690 SLI? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 690 SLI is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which is 24% more powerful and can run 899 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 690 SLI would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB which meets 961 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 31% better performance.

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.

don't be suprised mate. Even though this card [GTX 690]is a beast, you can't compare it to an GTX 980, even if its in SLi. Tech is advancing.

No the gtx 690 sli is better than 980.The reason why the 980 will perform better is because the people making games create them on the new technology and for the new technology that is why.The 980 is new technology

Maybe with some tweaks, it could run Minecraft with 3 FPS. I'd be surprised though.
