How well can the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Game performance for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 832 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 card at 1080p is seeing a good frame rate when running Baldurs Gate 3 on Ultra - 64 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Microsoft Flight Simulator which is 73 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a good 64 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Baldurs Gate 3 which delivered reasonable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 129 FPS, Medium: 102 FPS, High: 68 FPS and Ultra: 49 FPS. Next we have Microsoft Flight Simulator running on GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 which gets L: 147FPS, M: 116FPS, H: 78FPS, U: 56FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 129FPS, M: 102FPS, H: 68FPS, U: 49FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 we get the impression that it is a reliable performer at this larger resolution for modern games. The graphics card will be good to run 1440p on Ultra or High settings.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Super 8GB, which has 21% better performance and can run 984 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB which meets 986 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 26% better performance.

GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture.


Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution.


GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. The limited video memory available means the RTX 2060 3GB will struggle at 1440p resolution.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920 x 1080. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
