1080p Performance Thoughts

The new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER has enough grunt in it to easily drive most high-end and esports games on the market at 1080p and over 120/144FPS, perfect for those high refresh rate gaming displays. For those who didn't think there was enough ray tracing grunt in the RTX 2060 then the new RTX 2060 SUPER is definitely worth your attention, the same goes for any of the new tech on show here with Turing like DLSS.


Starting with something like Shadow of War which is VRAM and memory bandwidth intensive, the RTX 2060 SUPER pulls way ahead at 1080p with 130FPS average compared to the regular RTX 2060 with just 100FPS. Compare this to the TITAN Xp which used to retail for $1199 and its 138FPS, the new RTX 2060 SUPER truly is a powerhouse. Even the GTX 1080 Ti only manages 127FPS at 1080p in Shadow of War, while the new RTX 2060 SUPER even blows the Radeon VII away with its 128FPS average.

Rainbow Six Siege is a super-popular esports shooter, and the new RTX 2060 SUPER does well again here with nearly 200FPS at 1080p. We can see most of the cards are doing well at 1080p, with the RTX 2060 SUPER offering nearly the same performance as the GTX 1080 Ti in RSS at 1080p.

New games like Metro Exodus will bring even the highest-end graphics cards to their knees, but the RTX 2060 SUPER survives the benchmark with 65FPS average compared to 57FPS on the RTX 2060. This is slightly behind the GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp, but it beats the Radeon RX Vega 64, and loses to the Radeon VII here in Metro Exodus at 1080p.

1440p Performance Thoughts

8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit memory bus providing 448GB/sec of memory bandwidth doesn't help too much at 1080p but at 1440p and 4K the performance of the RTX 2060 SUPER comes into play against the RTX 2060 in as big way. This is where the RTX 2060 SUPER should pull away from the original RTX 2060, is in 1440p gaming situations which is where I'm the most excited to see it perform.


Once again we'll start with Shadow of War which is crazy good on the RTX 2060 SUPER with 93FPS average at 1440p, blowing away the RTX 2060 with its 72FPS and even coming to blows with the GTX 1080 Ti and TITAN Xp which are much more expensive cards. It is just 1FPS from beating the Radeon VII, and easily bests both Vega GPUs. An impressive feat, with Shadow of War letting that 256-bit memory bus on the RTX 2060 SUPER stretch its legs.

125FPS average for Rainbow Six Siege at 1440p is nothing to sneeze at with the RTX 2060 SUPER, beating the 111FPS average of the regular RTX 2060. We're coming close to the 140FPS of the TITAN Xp, but much closer to the 128FPS average on the GTX 1080 Ti.
