GeForce RTX 2070 Super And RTX 2060 Super Review: Tricked-Out NVIDIA Turing

GeForce RTX 2060 & 2070 Super: Far Cry New Dawn, DLSS, And Ray Tracing

Next up, we’ve got some benchmark scores from FarCry New Dawn, the latest installment in the storied franchise. Like its predecessors, FarCry New Dawn is a fast-action shooter set in an open world environment with lush visuals and high graphics fidelity. The game takes place in a fictional county in Montana, where a cult has taken over control of the area. We tested all of the graphics cards here at multiple resolutions using Ultra Quality settings to see how they handled this recently-released AAA title.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super edges past the Radeon VII at 1440P, but at 4K, the Radeon's memory bandwidth advantage allows it to pull ahead. A similar scenario plays out in the GeForce RTX 2060 Super vs. Radoen RX Vega 64 comparison.

Freshly Updated With DLSS Support
Deep Learning Super Sampling, or DLSS, is one of the GeForce RTX series’ stand-out features. When employed, DLSS should offer image quality on par with or better than other anti-aliasing techniques, but with a much smaller performance hit.

The GeForce RTX family are the only cards that support DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), hence the Radeons are being tested solely with TAA here. Regardless, in this test, the GeForces have a major performance advantage that sees the GeForce RTX Super outpacing the much more expensive Radeon VII, and the RTX 2070 Super slots in just behind the RTX 2080.

3DMark Port Royal
DXR Ray Tracing Benchmark

Port Royal was released earlier this year as an update to UL’s popular 3DMark suite. It is designed to test real-time ray tracing performance of graphics cards that support Microsoft DirectX Raytracing, or DXR. Although DXR is technically compatible with all DX12-class GPUs, the graphics card must have drivers that enable DXR, and NVIDIA is the only company to have done so at this point, hence the lack of Radeons in the chart.

The new GeForce RTX Super cards perform as expected in the Port Royal benchmark, and end up sandwiching the original GeForce RTX 2070. The most notable gain can be seen with the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, which offers up a 23% performance advantage over the previous generation standard GeForce RTX 2060.
