How well can the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

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

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2020. The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 986 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will get 75 FPS with the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB, FIFA 21 getting 224 FPS and Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 81 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB at 1440p and researched how Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War might perform on it leading us to predict a reasonable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 151 FPS, Medium: 119 FPS, High: 80 FPS and Ultra: 57 FPS. We then checked out FIFA 21 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 384FPS, M: 320FPS, H: 235FPS, U: 171FPS. And another popular game was Cyberpunk 2077 with predictions of L: 162FPS, M: 128FPS, H: 86FPS, U: 61FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB 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 Gaming Z 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB 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 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has 24% better performance and can run 998 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 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 3.0 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, and anti-bending backplate. This video card has great 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 1830 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a large 13% 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 225W, 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 Gaming Z 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
