GeForce RTX 2070 Review With EVGA: Turing's Sweet Spot

EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC - VRMark And Unigine Superposition

Superposition is a relatively new benchmark from Unigine, powered by the UNIGINE 2 Engine. It offers an array of benchmark modes, targeting gaming workloads as well as VR, with both DirectX and OpenGL code paths. There is an extreme hardware stability test built-in as well.

Unigine Superposition
Pseudo-DirectX / OpenGL Gaming
Unigine Superposition uses the developer’s unique SSRTGI (Screen-Space Ray-Traced Global Illumination) dynamic lighting technology, along with high quality textures and models, to produce some stunning visuals. We ran Superposition in two modes using the DirectX code path – 1080p Extreme and VR Future -- to compare the performance of all of the graphics cards featured here.

The EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC easily dispatches the GeForce GTX 1080 and Vega 64 here and finishes just a hair behind the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Superposition's VR Future tests tells essentially the same story -- the EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC once again outpaces the GeForce GTX 1080 and Vega 64 and just misses the mark set by the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Futuremark VRMark
Testing Rift And Vive Readiness
Futuremark’s VRMark is designed to test a PC’s readiness for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets. The benchmark does not, however, require that one of the headsets is attached to the PC to run and it uses an in-house graphics engine and content to ensure comparable results between different platforms. We ran the "Blue Room" VRMark test at defaults settings here, which is currently the most taxing test offered by the tool.

The EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC performed relatively well in VRMark. Here, the card exceeds the 60 FPS mark and almost catches the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but it leaves the GTX 1080 and Vega 64 in the dust.
