In depth like what..?
First and foremost the gk110 gpu in the Titan offers ~30-40% more pure horsepower than the Gk104 chips in the 690. This coupled with the fact that quad SLI scaling is usually pretty terrible means that three Titans will give your games more raw power to work with.
Second, the Titan has 6gb of GDDR5 on a 384bit bus versus the 690's 2gb on a 256 bit bus. (Technically the 690 has 4gb but since it is two gpus, each gpu gets 2gb which results in 2gb of usable memory). The width of the memory bus isn't usually an issue until you get into high resolutions like 2560x1600, surround setups, etc, but I'm guessing you didn't drop $3k on gpus to play on a 1080p monitor
The amount of memory, however, has a bigger impact on performance. Most
games don't go over 2gb at 1080p or 1440/1600p, but many do especially with high levels of AA or several mods enabled. However, newer games are requiring more and more VRAM. For example, according to alpha benchmarks from BF4, that game will use 2.25gb or more at just 1080p with 4xAA enabled. At that pojnt the 2gb of memory on the 690 setup would definitely be holding you back.Edited by estabya - 7/29/13 at 5:59am
