Our Verdict: The RTX 2070 is faster by 37% for 1440p gaming. However, RTX 2060 is still capable of producing more than 60 frames per second. For 1080p games, upgrading from RTX 2060 to RTX 2070 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070

The RTX 2080 might be the high-end flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most mid-range PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 2070 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 499. The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2070 SUPER, the RTX 2070 's price is getting more discount.

NVIDIA ’s xx70 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the RTX 2070, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RTX 2070 is much more expensive than the GTX 1070 as it costs a whopping $ 499. Compare this to the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which came originally at a price of $ 399, $ 409. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 XT which costs $ 399.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2070 blows past the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and, amazingly, even the GTX 1080 as well. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2070 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RTX 2070. Similarly, those holding onto RX 5700 XT 's RX Vega 56 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 65 fps to 83 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 74 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Anthem, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV at 64 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps. For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, F1 2018 at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 with i7-8700K vs i7-8700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 / i7-8700K

It is clear that the RTX 2060 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the RTX 2060 's 6144 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 .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 / i7-8700K

In terms of memory, the RTX 2070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2070 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
