Our Verdict: Upgrading from GTX 1080 to RTX 2060 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 RTX 2060 / Core i7-8700K

With some tuning, the RTX 2060 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. In terms of memory, the RTX 2060 '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 . Tell us what you think.. Share your comments below!
