How well can the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB run games
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB 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 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 980 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Days Gone and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 206 FPS, Medium: 162 FPS, High: 109 FPS and Ultra: 78 FPS. We proceeded to look at Dying Light 2 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 56 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Days Gone to see how the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a reasonable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 157 FPS, Medium: 124 FPS, High: 83 FPS and Ultra: 59 FPS. Next we looked at Dying Light 2 which we predict will be playable with a 42 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Forza Horizon 5 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 46. 1440p gaming on the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB? 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 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB.

GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB is a mid to high-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is the 'Super' variant of the RTX 2060 and utilises a cut-down version of the RTX 2070 GPU. 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 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p and 1440p screen resolutions. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106-410-A which has 2176 Shader Processing Units, 136 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1470 MHz and goes up to 1650 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. This provides total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Windforce 8GB 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.
