    This review looks at the new NVIDIA RTX 2060 Founders Edition card vs. RTX 2070, GTX 1070, 960, Vega 56, and more.

    Reviewing the RTX 2060 Founders Edition card takes aim primarily at gaming benchmarks, with particular effort dedicated to thermals, overclocking, power, and noise. The overclocking results are the most interesting, considering how they interact with RTX 2070 positioning, and are worth a close look when considering buying the RTX 2060 vs. RTX 2070. Vega 56 also gets testing, of course, and represents the more enthusiast OC style.
    As for thermals, power, and noise, the RTX 2060 undergoes this testing with the Founders Edition cooler and reference PCB, which is the same as a reference RTX 2070 PCB except with fewer memory modules.

Hey, have you guys checked what the Digital Foundry guys found? It seems that the card becomes vram limited when you enable Rtx in Battlefield V.

+tasman_devil technically 210*1.5 = 315. You don't overvolt, you undervolt a bit, you need to cool it to reach the clock, the limit is in the heat (I'm using a Rajintek morpheus so that's not a problem). But yeah, it draws power...

+tasman_devil i have a vega 64, which costs nearly the same as a 2060, even a light overclock beats the 2060. and i don't know where you live, but here in wisconsin, electricity is cheap. i pay maybe $20 bucks a year using my vega 64 all the time. lol. literally, can run it mining 24/7 and electricity isn't high at all.

why didn't you show oc vega 64? you only showed stock vs overclocked 2060?!! so in other words, overclock a vega 64 and it would smoke a 2060. especially for the fact that a vega 64 costs nearly the same as a 2060!!!

It would be nice if you did the benchmarks without the overclocked scores. It really clogs up the view. Perhaps just keep those in the website article? Just a suggestion.

plz no one buy this card show them a RTX Gimp is only the gimps that work at Nivida. RTX Gimp light aka 2080 /ti blocks 3/4 way fully. everything they do is to gimp it a lot or a lot more. But it is the only usable card that can let you update a tiny bit. Are you guys upset over them gimping the RTX Gimp?

I hate this card firs it was software blocking of SLI now you can not even use the hardware you buy. If i buy something i want to know that i can at a later point at 3 more cards not you can not even add 1!!!!!!!. like WTF!!!!! i have to pay a lot just to get a gimped card that can only do 2-way????????? huge dick move showing no care for the people burying it.

The only reasonable performance upgrade here is 1080ti -> 2080ti, but at that ridiculous price, it's just silly to consider it unless you're a game developer, or wealth and have more money than sense.. and that's the target demographic here.. the wealthy and the silly. The 1080ti is still king IMO.

Could you please include OC 1070 Ti as part of these benchmarks? Very strange that the card that is most compared to this 2060 does not have all its stats displayed.

RTX is a travesty. I bought my watercooled 1080 18 months ago for 550. Still feeling good about that buy, no need to upgrade this gen and if i do it will be Radeon VII if it's good enough. I'm fed up with Nvidia.

I REALLY appreciate seeing my GPU in your benchmark list. I have an EVGA GTX 980 Ti Hybrid, and it's very hard to find benchmarkers including it in their comparisons. It's also nice to see where it stands among today's cards, and it's nice to see that it is still sitting a step above the 1070 SC.

So, an idea to figure out how much power goes through the card slot. Start with a system with built in graphics, and get a base line of how much power it draws, then plug in a card without a power plug, then one with plug-able power

I've read a lot of posts where people complain this is not a midrange price, but the performance is close to a GTX 1080/1070ti so it's not a midrange card either. The naming is throwing people off, but I am sure there will eventually be either an 1150 or 2050 product that will hit the midrange $200 sweet spot and will outperform the GTX 1060 6gb.

I bought an FE edition on launch, £329 is a comfortable price for me, coming from an R9 290 so a HUGE performance increase and this will probably do me another 5 years, Ray tracing wasn't part of the decision making process, bit gutted that it will be a hassle to put Kryonaut paste on there though.

Is the ray-tracing the bottleneck or does turning other graphics settings down increase fps?

Vor 6 Tage

In BF5 turning down just the textures off of ultra(uncompressed) puts you over 60 FPS. With DLSS it is said to do over 60FPS with ray tracking at 1440p. It seems ray tracing uses a lot of memory bandwidth.

I dont think the community is giving the card enough credit....everyone wanted a cheaper RTX card that still had a performance increase and you got it...the $350 price point is well justified in my eyes because that is still about $100 cheaper than a 1070 ti, which the 2060 is performing VERY closely to, sometimes outperforming it in 1080p resolution. I understand that maybe the RTX framerates are not up to modern spec, but will you really use ray tracing in a competitive setting? If im going to use RTX it is going to be in a cinematic single player experience where frame rates are not so crucial.

I'm confused by the second metric used when you overclocked the rtx 2060 i get that the you boosted the frequency of the chip by 160 Hertz but what does the /900 mean? is that your memory overclock?

Is there any chance you guys would be able to do a comparison focusing on the 2060 vs the 1080 as compared to the 1060 vs the 980 (stock clocks/non-TI variants) at 1080p and 1440p in DX11 games (to eliminate the DX12 advantage that the newer GPUs would gain and to be on a more realistic level for the 1060/980 since they're not really 4K cards at all)? I basically want to know if, as I suspect, the 2060 isn't quite as close to the 1080 as the 1060 is to the 980. You have a few benchmarks on your charts that do illustrate this, but only on a couple of the titles and I'd like to see a more focused test across more games to get a clearer picture of the value proposition of the 2060 as a generational leap over Pascal as compared to the performance that the 1060 gave us over Maxwell. I know it's not totally an apples to apples comparison considering architectural changes and all, but I still think it would help to understand whether the pricing and positioning of the 2060 is really consistent or not with that of the 1060 when compared to its previous generation's '80' sku base card.
