Game performance for the GeForce GTX 690 SLI 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. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 747 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.
First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 690 SLI performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 148 FPS, Medium: 116 FPS, High: 78 FPS and Ultra: 56 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 37 FPS at Ultra 1080p.
We move on to 1440p, and predict that Forza Horizon 5 will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 113 FPS, Medium: 89 FPS, High: 60 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. Next we have Resident Evil 8 running on GeForce GTX 690 SLI which gets L: 73FPS, M: 58FPS, H: 39FPS, U: 28FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Dying Light 2 is predicted to get L: 62FPS, M: 49FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 24FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 690 SLI is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.How many years will the GeForce GTX 690 SLI graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 690 SLI in your PC?
