Rtx 2060 super vs rtx 2070

When considering Nvidia's RTX series, it is easy to be attracted by all the hype brought by those pioneering RT and Tensor cores, which is fair. These cores are the future of game technology, but focusing on these special abilities can sometimes obscure the actual needs of the game.

Therefore, in order to ensure that you understand all the performance aspects and the fundamental differences between the RTX series and GTX except for the special core, we have matched the RTX 2060 with its predecessor, GTX 1060.

4k The memory bus between cards

444k is their star architecture. The GTX 1060 uses the GP106400A1 variant of the NVIDIA Pascal microarchitecture, and the RTX 2060 is constructed using the TU106200AKAA1 variant of the Nvidia Turing microarchitecture. The differences between these systems are myriad in terms of hardware and functionality.

Please continue talking about the physical differences between the two Gladiators GPUs. GTX 1060 consists of 4.4 billion transistors and 1284 CUDA cores (shader units), while 2060 has 10.8 billion transistors, a total of 1920, which is actually a full CUDA core. The

RTX card also has texture drives (120 vs 70) and SM (30 vs 10), as well as each SM L1 64KB and 3MB L2 cache (overflowing treasure is more than cache). At this stage, it looks like there really is an edge in 1060. But what's interesting is that the sum of the render output processing units of these two cards equals 48.

Does all this extra RTX hardware mean that the 2060 is Is it heating up or does the simplified functionality mean it's stackable and cool? Well, under normal circumstances it will run over 70 ° C under load, but when you encounter visually demanding games some will get a bit hot.

At an ambient temperature of 3540 ° C, it is not uncommon to reach a temperature of around 86 ° C. The heat capacity is 88 ° C, you may need to make some adjustments in MSI Afterburner to solve the problem. If you are involved in strange overclocking, it is recommended to study liquid solutions.

Although 1060 consumes only 120 watts, 40 less than 2060, it is also known to sometimes hit the area of 80 or even 90 ° C, but you will be glad to know that the 94 ° C capacity can remove heat. However, under optimal conditions, with a good fan curve and making sure no other hardware dissipates heat, you should be able to keep it under mid-70s load. How about the

dimensions? Does all of the 2060 hardware require additional space or does the smaller 12nm process size make things compact? We are happy to report that it is the latest. There's not much in the

. Overall size will vary from model to model, but at 4,435 "(H) x 9" (L) x 2 slots (W), the RTX card is the smaller of the two. The size of the 1060 is 4.378” (H) x 9.823” (L) x 2 slots (W), so you can see that if there is a space issue, you don’t need to jump to 2060. Both should slip off without problems. But a duel about this dimension is enough. It's time to solve some problems.

So far, the 2060 hardware is outdated, but the 1060 actually has a faster clock speed, so the question is, can this fast thinking help you keep up with all the shiny Turing new architectures?

At the highest setting of 1080p, those fast clock speeds seem to have little help in the competition between GTX cards and 2060 GPUs. In fact, 1060 is difficult to break 100fps, unless it is a special GPU game, such as CSGO. For that title, both cards exceeded the 200fps mark.

For games such as GTA 5, PUBG, Overwatch, and Fortnite, 2060 provides an epic spread between 39-63%, and almost always averages more than 100 frames per second. 1080p belongs to RTX 2060.

For 1440p games, RTX 2060 continues its beautiful brutality, achieving an overall win of around 58% across multiple games. 1060 managed to hit an average frame per second slightly below the 50 mark, and the RTX monster pushed itself into the 70s and took the 1440p stage away.

If you like the quirks of 4K gaming, you won't be too surprised to learn that these two cards are not only below 60fps, but also below 50fps. That said, if you reduce shadows and ambient occlusion on the GTX 1060, you will reduce the RTX advantage by 1%, although you will still see an average RTX advantage of 57%. It's time for

to let those great RT cores shine in the RTX 2060. There are 30 in total, and it can provide original real lighting in all your favorite games that support it.

In the full ray tracing range, 30 RT cores is not a ton, especially considering the 2080 Ti is 68, which is impressive. You can use special software to enable ray tracing on GTX cards, but since they don't naturally support it, it is very difficult for them to extract frames per second. In fact, under the ray tracing workload, the 1060's performance will be less than good.

We put the focus of this article on the 6GB GTX 1060, because it is the only product that can provide even a small candle for RTX cards, but for those who are interested, you can also find a 3GB variant.

Other than performance comparison, there is no better barometer

In comparison, things are interesting here. GTX 1060 With the 2002 MHz memory clock frequency is faster than RTX, but comparing effective memory speed, RTX dominates with GTX 14Gbps of GTX .

RTX 2060 is not born all your RT and is privileged, it is definitely an excellent card , the tensor core, but in general it is performed at a high level. If you already have 1060 and are looking 2060 years as a future update, it's a great move! In addition to providing tranquility in the future, you must analyze a graphic performance immediately 50% + Boost. Happy game
