With a 1080p resolution the RTX 2070 was getting average frame rates 11% higher than the 1080, and very similar results at 1440p and 4K.
Overwatch was tested in the practice range as this lets me easily reproduce the same test run, and I was seeing massive differences with this game.
Out of all the games tested it was by far getting the biggest performance boost with the RTX 2070 graphics, with the 1% lows from the 2070 beating the averages from the 1080 at all resolutions.
At 1080p the 2070 was getting 42% better average FPS than the 1080, 46% better at 1440p, and 42% better at 4K.
Battlefield 5 was tested in campaign mode rather than multiplayer, as it’s easier to consistently reproduce the test run.
The 1% low results were very close together in this game, and the average frame rates from the 2070 weren’t too far ahead either, 12% better at 1080p and 1440p and then 14% better at 4K when compared with the GTX 1080, and we’ll check out raytracing a bit later.
CS:GO was tested with the ulletical benchmark, and there was less of a difference between the 1080 and 2070 in this game.
Interestingly, the 1080 was actually performing better in terms of 1% low performance at 1440p and 1080p with better frame times.
With a 1080p resolution the 2070 was just 3% ahead of the 1080 in terms of average frame rate, then 6% better at 1440p, and 9% better at 4K.
Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark, and even at ultra settings both graphics options are still giving us pretty good frame rates.
This game saw the second highest improvement behind Overwatch out of all games tested with the 2070, and at 1080p the 2070 was getting 19% better average frame rates, 24% better at 1440p, and 28% better at 4K.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was also tested with the built in benchmark, and both cards were able to get above 60 FPS at 1440p even with ultra settings.
At 1080p there was a 10% improvement to average frames per second with the 2070, a 12% improvement at 1440p, and a 15% improvement at 4K.
Far Cry 5 was tested with the built in benchmark, and even at ultra settings we’re seeing decent frame rates at 1440p from either card.
At 1080p the 2070 was just 4% better than the 1080 in terms of average FPS, 10% better at 1440p, and 11% better at 4K.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark, and the 1% lows at 1440p and 1080p didn’t really see much difference between the two.
The average frame rates saw the 2070 give us an 8% improvement over the 1080 at 1080p, just a 2% improvement at 1440p, and then a 16% boost at 4K.
PUBG was tested using the same replay, and both were again able to average above 60 FPS at 1440p even with ultra settings.
The 2070 was giving me an average frame rate 8% above the 1080 at 1080p, and then around a 10% improvement at 1440p and 4K.
Watch Dogs 2 is a fairly resource intensive game, but I can play it perfectly fine with a solid 30 FPS average, so 4K was actually playable for me with either card even with ultra settings.
There wasn’t that much of a difference between the 1% low results, and in terms of average FPS the 2070 was 7% ahead of the GTX 1080 at 1080p, and a 5% improvement at both 1440p and 4K.
The Witcher 3 was tested with Hairworks disabled, but ultra settings are still pretty intensive compared to the other settings in this game.
