Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2060 to GTX 1080 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RTX 2060 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

The good news is, with the release of the GTX 1080 Ti, the GTX 1080 's price is getting more discount. NVIDIA ’s xx80 cards have always been defined by high-end prices with performance that knocks on the door of extreme graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GTX 1080, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The GTX 1080 has 8 GB RAM compared to the GTX 980 's 4 GB video memory. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1080 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 980, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4, Gears of War 5 at 68 fps to 85 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 78 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, Final Fantasy XV at 62 fps to 63 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 62 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Forza Horizon 4 at 65 fps to 65 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

The RTX 2070 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 2060 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 350. The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2060 SUPER, the RTX 2060 's price is getting more discount.

NVIDIA ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the RTX 2060, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RTX 2060 is much more expensive than the GTX 1060 6GB as it costs a whopping $ 350. Compare this to the GTX 1060 6GB, which came originally at a price of $ 254. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 which costs $ 349.

Spec for spec, this RTX 2060 leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1060 6GB, by boasting 2 % more fps. In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2060 blows past the GTX 1060 6GB and, amazingly, even the GTX 1070 as well.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The RTX 2060 consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 1060 6GB and it really justifies an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Gears of War 5, Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 66 fps to 86 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Final Fantasy XV, Just Cause 4, Monster Hunter: World at 60 fps to 63 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 61 fps.
