Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2060 SUPER to Radeon VII 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 SUPER .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

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 SUPER, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RTX 2060 SUPER is much more expensive than the GTX 1060 6GB as it costs a whopping $ 400. 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 SUPER leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1060 6GB, by boasting 2 % more fps. The RTX 2060 SUPER has 8 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6 GB video memory.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2060 SUPER blows past the GTX 1060 6GB and, amazingly, even the GTX 1070 as well. Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The RTX 2060 SUPER 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 Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Gears of War 5 at 61 fps to 89 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Final Fantasy XV, Just Cause 4 at 61 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Forza Horizon 4 at 66 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

AMD Radeon VII

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat at 68 fps to 91 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 79 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Anthem, Final Fantasy XV, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4 at 69 fps to 75 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 71 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Battlefield V, Fallout 76, World War Z at 64 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

RTX 2060 SUPER vs Radeon VII with i7-8700K vs i7-9700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER / i7-8700K

With some tuning, the RTX 2060 SUPER makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. In terms of memory, the RTX 2060 SUPER 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2019 .

AMD Radeon VII / i7-9700K

It is worth noting that the Radeon VII is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the Radeon VII 's 16384 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. It is important to know that Radeon VII 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like Radeon VII requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this Radeon VII , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
