10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2021. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 748 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

A GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a reasonable frame rate when running Forza Horizon 5 on Ultra - 57 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Grand Theft Auto VI which is 32 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Back 4 Blood is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a reasonable 59 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition at 1440p and researched how Forza Horizon 5 might perform on it leading us to predict a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 114 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 60 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. We then checked out Grand Theft Auto VI which we predict would have a set of graphics results as followed, L: 64FPS, M: 51FPS, H: 34FPS, U: 24FPS. And another popular game was Back 4 Blood with predictions of L: 118FPS, M: 93FPS, H: 62FPS, U: 45FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition in your PC? Upgrade time for this GPU is currently placed at 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 47% better and can meet 976 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, as it can run 967 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 40% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature Edition is a special edition of high-end and dual Graphics Geforce GTX 690, modified by EVGA.
The new features include a custom water block and a custom PCB and an overclocking out of the box in the core-clock from 915MHz to 993MHz - which is impressive considering it is a dual graphics solution.
Unfortunately, there are no benchmarks available yet but we believe there's at least a 9% performance boost compared to the reference GPU and that even the most demanding games will run with fluent frame rates even at extreme resolutions.
