How well can the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Game performance for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 860 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Grounded and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 172 FPS, Medium: 135 FPS, High: 91 FPS and Ultra: 65 FPS. We proceeded to look at Halo Infinite to see how that compared and predict that it will return a reasonable 50 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Grounded on the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 to see that it got a reasonable set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 131FPS, M: 103FPS, H: 69FPS, U: 50FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Halo Infinite which we predicted will be playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 38 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Valorant where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were strong at 534 FPS. 1440p gaming on the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070, which has 22% better performance and can run 987 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 25% better and can meet 988 of their recommended requirements.

GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture.


Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution.


GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. The limited video memory available means the RTX 2060 3GB will struggle at 1440p resolution.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920 x 1080. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
