A mid to low level graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition is found in budget machines nowadays, struggling to meet AAA system requirements.
This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.
We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 451 games in todays list.
