GeForce GTX Titan vs Geforce GTX 690

Intro

The GeForce GTX Titan has core clock speeds of 837 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 2688 SPUs along with 224 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 690, which comes with a clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1502 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1536 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX Titan 250 Watts
Geforce GTX 690 300 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Geforce GTX 690 should theoretically be much superior to the GeForce GTX Titan overall. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 384512 MB/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 288384 MB/sec
Difference: 96128 (33%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 690 is a lot (more or less 25%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX Titan. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 234240 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 187488 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 46752 (25%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 690 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 58560 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX Titan 40176 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 18384 (46%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

You can play crysis3 at very high graphics just using these gpus

With high fps u mean cause a GTX 680 run it with about 50-60...my old GTX could run it in high with 40FPS
Gamer87 says:
Yes i can play too at very high with 50 fps with a GTX680, just when you use too much filtering it goes to 40-45fps

its better 3x sli gtx 670 the same price $1000
Gary says:
Do you hav any spec's on the gtx690 4GB version against the Titan?
LEEROY says:
Gary - speed will be near identical with cards where the only difference is memory capacity. Bus speed and core clocks etc are all the same. Only difference is more frame buffer, so the GPU can set aside larger, more detailed frames during its workload.

A GTX 690 is a 4GB card; the 4GB comes from each gpu (@ 2GB Each).

Can i play Battlefield 4 on max with one 690?

Can I play Battlefield 4 on 4k? (i guess, never on max settings and 4k :O)

Anonymous says:
I dont see why the 690 couldnt run bf4 max at 4k how ever if you were Id suggest turn some of the post processing off.
