GTX 690 with i7-2700K 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of GTX 690 is simply ridiculous. It is worth noting that the GTX 690 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GTX 690 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 690 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 690 and Intel Core i7-2700K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX 690 and Intel Core i7-2700K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GTX 690 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

The GTX 690 is much more expensive than the GTX 590 as it costs a whopping $ 999. Compare this to the GTX 590, which came originally at a price of $ 699. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the HD 7990 which costs $ 999. The GTX 690 has 2 GB RAM compared to the GTX 590 's 1.5 GB video memory.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 690 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 590, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a GTX 590 will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this GTX 690. Similarly, those holding onto HD 7990 's HD 6990 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play F1 2019, World War Z, Apex Legends, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Resident Evil 2 at 62 fps to 77 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 68 fps.

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 690 will be available for 9. Holding NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 690 is the first hint that NVIDIA created something special. The new card feels great thanks to the dominant use of metal, both with shiny and rough surfaces. Thanks to the used magnesium alloy it is still much lighter ...
According to NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX 690 will be available in limited quantities from add-in card partners, including ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit and Zotac starting ...
After testing the GeForce GTX 680 last month, it was practically a foregone conclusion that a dual-GPU powered graphics card based on the same GK104 GPU was coming down the pipeline.
Today NVIDIA releases their new GeForce GTX 690 flagship. The 9 card is based on two GK104 graphics processors that have their full potential enabled. The new card has one of the most extravagant designs, making heavy use of metal which adds to the experience. Performance is outstanding, being neck to neck with a dual GTX 680 SLI setup.
Nvidia has designed the GTX 690 as a straight combination of two GTX 680 cores on one PCB, and our benchmark results show that this is accurate, with little sign of the diminishing returns ...
AMD and Nvidia are notorious for routinely trading off the trophy for the best video card on the planet. But judging from Nvidia's latest release, the GeForce GTX 690, we can't help but wonder if ...
GTX 690 would be a no compromise card – quieter and less power hungry than GTX 680 SLI, as fast as GTX 680 in single-GPU performance, and as fast as GTX 680 SLI in multi-GPU performance.
As always NVIDIA is going to be doing some binning here to snag the best GK104 GPUs for the GTX 690, which is the other factor in bringing down power consumption versus the 2x195W GTX 680 SLI.
The GeForce GTX Titan is the new kid on the block. With a single GK110 (Kepler) GPU, the GTX Titan has the potential to give high-end gamers similar performance to the GTX 690 with more efficient ...
The GeForce GTX 690 was a enthusiast-class graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in May 2012. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK104 graphics processor, in its GK104-355-A2 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0.
Introduction NVIDIA made the surprise announcement of GeForce GTX 690 launch last weekend. A little later, we found ourselves opening a classy wooden crate with a crowbar NVIDIA sent a little earlier, in it was the GeForce GTX 690.
