In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 6690D2.

The Radeon HD 6690D2 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The GTX 470 was released over three years more recently than the Radeon HD 6690D2, and so the GTX 470 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon HD 6690D2 when running the latest games.

The GTX 470 has 1280 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 6690D2 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GTX 470 has 448 Shader Processing Units but the Radeon HD 6690D2 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition requires 215 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 6690D2. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 470.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 470.
This edition comes with a dual-fan custom solution and overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 607MHz to 650MHz, while the operating memory clock is now of 850MHz, instead of 837MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
Radeon HD 6690D2 is a combination of a Radeon 6550D (integrated graphics) with a Radeon HD 6670 (dedicated).
This combination is called Asymmetric CrossFire and can also lead to Micro Stuttering.
We do not know much about this GPU at the moment but the performance should be around 7% better than a Radeon HD 6670 performing by itself but in some cases it might be worse.
