How well can the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 992 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title FIFA 20 and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 500 FPS, Medium: 417 FPS, High: 306 FPS and Ultra: 222 FPS. We proceeded to look at Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see how that compared and saw that it returned a good 62 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB ran FIFA 20 to a strong performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 382 FPS, Medium: 318 FPS, High: 233 FPS and Ultra: 170 FPS. Another game tested was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order, L: 124FPS, M: 98FPS, H: 66FPS, U: 47FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Red Dead Redemption 2, which returned L: 161FPS, M: 127FPS, H: 85FPS, U: 61FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB PC gaming is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which meets 997 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 25% better performance.

GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the 12nm Turing Architecture and is considered a great 1440p video card. This is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan thermal design using TORX 2.0 fans for improved airflow and optimised heat dissipation. This video card uses Zero Frozr to eliminate fan noise in low-load situations, and also has RGB Mystic Light lighting. This card has average overclocking potential.


Architecture
It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed TU106, more specifically the TU106-400A-A1 variant which means factory overclocks are permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 32 RT Cores for ray-tracing.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1740 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a decent 7% overclock when compared to the reference model.


Memory
The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 185W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with one available 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector.


Performance


The GeForce RTX 2070 offers performance in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, albeit also boasting ray-tracing and DLSS support.


System Suggestions
The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Armor OC 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
