Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q Performance Review

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2022. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 741 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q can run Back 4 Blood at 1080p and saw it return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 156 FPS, Medium: 123 FPS, High: 83 FPS and Ultra: 59 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that FIFA 22 returns a strong 91 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q ran Back 4 Blood to a reasonable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 119 FPS, Medium: 94 FPS, High: 63 FPS and Ultra: 45 FPS. Another game tested was FIFA 22, L: 183FPS, M: 144FPS, H: 97FPS, U: 69FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Star Citizen, wih estimates revealing L: 119FPS, M: 94FPS, H: 63FPS, U: 45FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is certainly capable of running larger monitor gaming at Ultra or High graphics settings.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for around 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q which meets 810 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 25% better performance.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance.

GeForce GTX 1060 is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 1060 game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 599 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Citizen will get 57 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1060, Resident Evil 8 getting 35 FPS and Dying Light 2 getting 30 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the GeForce GTX 1060 will run the upcoming game Star Citizen to a playable performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 114 FPS, Medium: 90 FPS, High: 60 FPS and Ultra: 43 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 70FPS, M: 56FPS, H: 37FPS, U: 27FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Dying Light 2, which returned L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1060 is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this GeForce GTX 1060

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1060? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060.
