Benchmarks: GTA V, AC:O, Hitman 2, Rainbow Six Siege, World of Tanks
The Grand Theft Auto V results are very interesting. The RTX 2060 managed to roughly match the GTX 1080 and this meant it was 6% faster than the GTX 1070 Ti. Once again, it was also just 10% slower than the RTX 2070, making the $500 option rather pointless in our opinion.
The RTX 2060 matched the GTX 1080 again, this time on Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It was 7% faster than the GTX 1070 Ti and ~10% slower than the RTX 2070. We should note it was also 17% faster than Vega 56.
Performance in Hitman 2 will likely be improved. There were a few titles where frame time performance was down for the RTX 2060 from where it normally should be and we don't believe this to be VRAM capacity related.
The odd stutter was seen when testing the RTX 2060 and this lead to a 7% drop off for the 1% low result when compared to the GTX 1070 Ti. Frame time performance was also down 13% when compared to Vega 56, but we would expect performance to be optimized further with a future driver.
Rainbow Six Siege is a complex post FX heavy title and it seems as though Turing's concurrent FP32 and INT32 execution is providing a handy performance boost. The RTX 2060 was 15% faster than the GTX 1080 which is a massive increase. It was also 25% faster than the 1070 Ti, a GPU it's typically matched or only slightly beaten in other titles.
The last game we're discussing is World of Tanks, where the RTX 2060 matched Vega 64 Liquid as well as the GTX 1070 Ti. The 2060 was 13% slower than the 2070, but 15% faster than Vega 56.
