GeForce RTX 2060 vs GTX 1070: Which GPU is the Best?

GeForce RTX 2060 vs GTX 1070 Comparison

Is the GeForce RTX 2060 a convenient upgrade to the GeForce GTX 1070?

We can all agree that the RTX 2060 is definitely an upgrade over its previous generation, the GTX 1060. From the RTX 2060, you get a lot more performance, new features and a lot of improvements, for an extra $100. However, considering there is a big price difference between the RTX 2060 and its predecessor, we chose to look at the closest competitor in terms of price: the GTX 1070.

We will look at the essential specs, a few technical details and how the two video cards handle games at 1080p, 1440p.

We will also talk about 4K results separately since it is a sensitive topic when it comes to how these two GPUs handle fps in 4K.

For benchmark testing, we chose a few games, such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher III.

Finally, we will talk about pricing, availability and reach a conclusion on what is the best purchase if you’re looking to build a budget-friendly PC or just upgrade your GPU and still save some bucks.
