MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X GPU Review

Game Testing

Ashes of the Singularity

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

The Gaming X averages over 70 FPS in 1080p/1040p and almost reaches that golden 60 FPS at 4K with an average of 57.9.

At 1440p we see the Gaming X sitting in the middle of our benched RTX 2070 cards.

At 4K, we drop a little bit against the RTX 2070’s, only beating the Zotac Blower style card.

Far Cry 5

Anything can happen. Everything will.

Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult—known as The Project at Eden’s Gate—that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leaders, Joseph Seed, and the Heralds, as you spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.

We get an extremely smooth run at 1440p with an average FPS of 91 and a minimum of 79. We still find ourselves short of the coveted 60 FPS at 4K averaging 47 FPS.

Well above its brother, the Gaming Z, we now find the RTX 2060 Super Gaming X in the middle of the RTX 2070 pack.

Dues Ex: Mankind Divided

The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have now been deemed outcasts, living a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society.

Now an experienced covert operative, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

The Dues Ex really pushes the RTX 2060 Super to its max, averaging a respectable 56.2 FPS at 1440p. At 1080 we see a silky-smooth experience, hitting an average of 80.1 FPS and keeps the minimum FPS above 60 FPS.

As expected, the RTX 2060 sits right in between the RTX 2070’s.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

In the epic sequel to the award-winning Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, go behind enemy lines to forge an army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.

The Gaming X destroys both 1080p and 1440p with FPS of 113 and 80. At 4K, we find ourselves just shy of 60 frames per second with an average of 48.

No surprises here with the RTX 2060 Super Gaming X sitting between the RTX 2070s.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the Gaming X excels at 1440p with an average of 74FPS but still struggles at 4K only hitting 38 FPS.

In 1440p, we see the RTX 2060 Super Gaming X again edging out many RTX 2070 cards.

Also echoed at 4K, the Gaming X finds itself among the RTX 2070’s.

Tom Clancy’s The Division

We live in a complex world. The more advanced it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. We’ve created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart.

Black Friday – a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

When society falls, we rise.

The RTX 2060 Super Gaming X does extreme well at both 1080p and 1440p.

In the Division, we see the MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X surprisingly beat our RTX 2080’s and sitting below the RTX 2080ti’s.

Metro: Last Light

“It Is the Year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.”

Developed by 4A Games and published by Deepsilver, Metro: Last Light uses the 4A game engine. At its highest settings, the 4A game engine is capable of bringing all but the most extreme gaming systems to their knees.

In Metro, even at 4K, we manage to hit that magical average 60 FPS.
