Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

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 2022 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 446 games in todays list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 38 FPS, Medium: 30 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that FIFA 22 returns a strong 83 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Battlefield 2042 to see how the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 29 FPS, Medium: 23 FPS, High: 15 FPS and Ultra: 11 FPS. Next we looked at FIFA 22 which was good with a 63 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Back 4 Blood that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 41. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition, this 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 Asus 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 Asus 4GB Edition.
