RTX 2070 with i3-2100 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

In terms of memory, the RTX 2070 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between RTX 2070 and Intel Core i3-2100 @ 3.10GHz is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss. 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.

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 . 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 . Compare this to the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti , which came originally at a price of , . Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 XT which costs .

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, Anthem, Just Cause 4, Final Fantasy XV at 65 fps to 97 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 81 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD , we were able to play Anthem, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV, Just Cause 4, Monster Hunter: World at 64 fps to 71 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 69 fps. For 2160p 4K , we were able to play F1 2018, Forza Horizon 4 at 68 fps to 73 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 70 fps.

@EpicStrafe well it shows up there that you will lose about -21.4 FPS or 20% at 1080p, however, you still get a good 60+ FPS overall.

@Travis Haven't got it yet but would recommend because of my experience of setting PCs up for people and the 2070 is about 30% faster than the 1080 but I would recommend an i7 not an i5 like this benchmark says.

@Travis Your 8700k is overclocked to 4.8ghz I'm assuming you have overclocked your gpu too? this is why your getting more fps. I' m running 2070 with 8700k clocked @ 4.3ghz and I easly get 130 fps @ 1440p in BF V, do some research on the 2070 vs 1080 the 2070 beats it, but its up to you if its worth the upgrade

Really need to get a new cpu with this lol, 1500x and 2070 is not a good match, would get like 40fps more on most games if i got a 2700x but i'll wait for ryzen 3000.
