Nvidia's FrameView gaming benchmark tool promises highly accurate GPU performance and power usage data
The long time coming GeForce RTX Super graphics cards are here: the RTX 2060 Super is a slightly cut down version of the original RTX 2070 (but now at $400) as both use TU106 silicon. Meanwhile, the RTX 2070 Super is a boosted version of the original for the same price, reaching closer to 2080-levels of performance.
Today we're going to compare the most affordable RTX 2060 graphics card you can buy right now to one of the most expensive models from MSI. Prospective buyers often ask this and particular details aside, you could extrapolate this comparison to other GPU series as well.
If you're looking to buy a new graphics card today, don't mind all the testing, marginal fps gains, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. TechSpot's Best Graphics Cards is written to get a simple question answered: Given a certain budget, which is the graphics card you should buy?
Last week we checked out the new GeForce GTX 1650 for the first time and we were disappointed that it was no rival for AMD's RX 570. We've since tested the 75-watt model lacking an external PCI Express power connector and have to admit we're pleasantly surprised.
Based on the TU117 die the new GeForce GTX 1650 still includes all of the new Turing shader innovations that improve performance and efficiency. The TDP is just 75 watts, meaning it doesn't require external power, making it the fastest graphics card available that won't need external PCIe power.
During this year's GDC, Nvidia announced that GTX graphics cards would be getting basic ray tracing support with a driver update. For putting together this test we took the most powerful Pascal GPU we had on hand - the Nvidia Titan X - and pitted it against Nvidia's RTX line-up in the three games that support ray tracing thus far.
Recently we've looked back at the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and the GTX 960, both popular GPUs from yesteryear. Those features have been warmly welcomed, but besides the overall positive responses what we noticed in common in your feedback was the request to test the GeForce GTX 970, which was the performance/value offering of the time and a GPU some of you are still rocking in today's games with some success.
