NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Review: Reasonably Priced Ray Tracing

GeForce RTX 2060 - FarCry 5 And Final Fantasy DLSS Tests

Next up, we’ve got some benchmark scores from FarCry 5, the latest installment in the storied franchise. Like its predecessors, FarCry 5 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 2060 lands smack dab in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and Radeon RX Vega 64 in the FarCry 5 benchmark. All of the cards put up playable numbers at 1080p, but the GTX 1070 is the cut-off point once the resolution is increased to 1440p, if you're the type that likes to maintain a smooth 60 FPS+.

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.

Obviously, we only have DLSS scores on the GeForce RTX series cards, since the others don't support it. As you can see, DLSS has the potential to really change the game. The GeForce RTX 2060 finished well behind the GeForce GTX 1080 when both cards employ TAA. Switch over to DLSS though and the GeForce RTX 2060 just out to a massive lead.
