Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

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

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 942 games in todays list.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB shows us that Resident Evil 8 is getting a reasonable result of 54 FPS, and then we are seeing Days Gone returning a good 71 FPS while another game on our list is the Battlefield 2042 which is predicted to get 50 frames per second 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 MSI Ventus XS 6GB ran Days Gone to a reasonable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 142 FPS, Medium: 112 FPS, High: 75 FPS and Ultra: 54 FPS. Another game researched was Battlefield 2042 with predictions of L: 101FPS, M: 79FPS, H: 53FPS, U: 38FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Resident Evil 8, which returned L: 109FPS, M: 86FPS, H: 58FPS, U: 41FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB running at 1440p is a good choice for running modern games at Ultra in this larger screen resolution.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB.

GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance RTX graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is a dual-slot video card with dual-fan Torx Fan 2.0 thermal design and anti-bending backplate. This version of the Ventus does not have MSI OC and may not be great for overclocking. 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 (RTX) technology. The GeForce RTX 2060 supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106-200A-KA-A which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs, 47 ROPs, and features a factory overclock. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz in Boost mode, the same as the reference model. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 160W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 MSI Ventus XS 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
