The Nvidia RTX 2070 is the bare minimum requirement for Nvidia real-time ray tracing. Since we have not games that support the feature right now, all that we can do is test the raw performance that the graphics card has to offer. We have the MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z benchmarks. The card was tested in 10 games at 1440p and 4K resolution.
MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z Benchmarks At 1440p/4K
The Nvidia RTX 2070 is supposed to be faster than the GTX 1080 and that is what we get from the Nvidia RTX 2070 benchmarks. You can check out how well the MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z performs as compared to the GTX 1080 as well as the AMD Vega 64 in the benchmarks below:
Nvidia RTX 2070 benchmarks show that the custom Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card performs better as compared to the previous generation Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics card as well as the AMD Vega 64. Out of all the games that we see here, there is a significant improvement when looking at the numbers for Wolfenstein 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Moving on to the 4K benchmarks, we see that the FPS take a hit but the Nvidia RTX 2070 is still able to stay at the top. At the higher resolution, the difference between the AMD RX Vega 64 and GTX 1080 is very small indeed, but the Nvidia RTX 2070 performance numbers have a significant edge over the other graphics cards. You can check out the MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z benchmarks below:
Nvidia RTX 2070 Vs RTX 2080
We know how well the RTX 2080 stands up against the older generation cards but how well does it compete against the bigger brothers, the RTX 2080? The Nvidia RTX 2080 is priced higher and is a high-end graphics card, so you would imagine getting marginally better performance as compared to the RTX 2070.
Is that the case? You can check out the MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z benchmarks below to see how well it performs as compared to RTX 2080:
Both cards perform well at 1440p but the significant difference is only in selected titles. Looking at Far Cry 5 at 4K the difference is minimal. The same is the case when the resolution is brought down to 1440p. On the other hand, we see a major difference when looking at the numbers for Battlefield 1 and Wolfenstein 2.
We still do not have games that support Nvidia RTX real-time ray tracing. When support for the feature is available then we will be able to tell you more about the value that both of these cards have to offer. Stay tuned for more updates.
