The Perfect Card For 1440p
If there was a single resolution where the new GeForce RTX 2070 stands out it would be 2560x1440, where it ensures at least 60FPS in all of the games we tested. We're looking at a 30% or higher average improvement over the GeForce GTX 1070, with performance finding itself more between the GTX 1080 and higher-end GTX 1080 Ti.
NVIDIA debuted the Pascal GPU architecture with the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 in May 2016, and since then there have been cards between these two (GTX 1070 Ti) just past the GTX 1080 (GTX 1080 models with 11Gbps GDDR5X) and above it: GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp. The new GeForce RTX 2080 sits between the GTX 1080 Ti and the TITAN Xp, while the RTX 2080 Ti blows past them both.
The new GeForce RTX 2070 that we have here today comfortably beats the GTX 1070 and even the GTX 1080, while trading blows with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in some games, especially where memory bandwidth comes into play. Hell, the new RTX 2070 in some games even keeps up with the TITAN Xp, a $1200 graphics card. You wouldn't buy the RTX 2070 for these specific situations, but if you wanted to buy something new and not a GPU that is now over two years old, the RTX 2070 offers solid 1440p performance.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the very latest benchmark added to our suite (Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is coming after this article, with 8K results in tow) and boy does it run well on the GeForce RTX 2080.
Against GTX 1080/GTX 1080 Ti: At 2560x1440 we were seeing 59FPS average while the GTX 1080 it pushing just 50FPS average, while the GTX 1080 Ti beats the RTX 2070 by 2FPS with 61FPS average. The RTX 2080 is only just ahead with 63FPS while the RTX 2080 Ti takes a larger leap to 73FPS average.
Against GTX 1070: We're looking at 17FPS minimum and 41FPS average on the GeForce GTX 1070, compared to the 26FPS minimum and 59FPS average, a performance increase of 44%.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is one of the newest games on our benchmarking roster, and it runs at 64FPS minimum and 73FPS average at 1440p.
Against GTX 1080/GTX 1080 Ti: If we compare this to the 66FPS average on the GTX 1080, and 84FPS of the GTX 1080 Ti, we can see the RTX 2070 falling right into the middle of the two higher-end Pascal cards in Lara's latest adventures. The previous-gen $1199 graphics card in the TITAN Xp is pushing out 88FPS average at 1440p, while the Radeon RX Vega 64 loses to the RTX 2070 with 66FPS average.
Against GTX 1070: The GTX 1070 is capable of 45FPS minimum and 54FPS average in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1440p, while the new RTX 2070 and its 64FPS minimum and 73FPS average. This is a jump of 35% average FPS.
Far Cry 5 is still one of the best looking games on the market, with Ubisoft doing a great job on PC graphics card scaling and multi-GPU at higher resolutions.
Against GTX 1080/GTX 1080 Ti: Even gorgeous games like Far Cry 5 run like butter on the RTX 2070 with 94FPS average at 1440p, against 85FPS average on the GTX 1080 and 104FPS on the GTX 1080 Ti. TITAN Xp is achieving 108FPS average at 1440p, beating out all of the cards but that's expected for $1199.
Against GTX 1070: The Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1070 hits 69FPS average at 1440p compared to 79FPS average, a smaller but still significant 15% increase in performance.
