Synthetic Testing

Futuremark 3DMark

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your PC and mobile devices in one app. Whether you're gaming on a smartphone, tablet, notebook, or a desktop gaming PC, 3DMark includes a benchmark specifically designed for your hardware.

The RTX 2060 Super Windforce OC performs excellently in both Firestrike and Timespy and sits among the RTX 2070’s we have benched.

Futuremark VRMark

The performance requirements for VR games are much higher than for typical PC games. So if you're thinking about buying an HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift, wouldn't you like to know that your PC is ready for VR?

VRMark includes three VR benchmark tests that run on your monitor, no headset required, or on a connected HMD. At the end of each test, you'll see whether your PC is VR ready, and if not, how far it falls short.

Orange Room Test - The Orange Room benchmark shows the impressive level of detail that can be achieved on a PC that meets the recommended hardware requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. If your PC passes this test, it's ready for the two most popular VR systems available today.

Cyan Room Test - Cyan Room is a DirectX 12 benchmark. It features a large, complex scene and many eye-catching effects. Cyan Room shows how using an API with less overhead can help developers deliver impressive VR experiences even on modest PC systems.

Blue Room Test - The Blue Room is a much more demanding test. It's ideal for benchmarking the latest graphics cards. With its massive 5K rendering resolution and spectacular volumetric lighting effects, the Blue Room sets the bar for future hardware generations.

The Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Windforce OC destroys both the Orange with 253 FPS and Cyan Room with 189 FPS. In VR Mark’s torturous Blue Room, the Windforce manages to pull out an impressive 58 FPS.

Unigine Heaven

Heaven Benchmark is a GPU-intensive benchmark that hammers graphics cards to the limits. This powerful tool can be effectively used to determine the stability of a GPU under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system's potential for maximum heat output.

The benchmark immerses a user into a magical steampunk world of shiny brass, wood, and gears. Nested on flying islands, a tiny village with its cozy, sun-heated cobblestone streets, and a majestic dragon on the central square gives a true sense of adventure. An interactive experience with fly-by and walk-through modes allows for exploring all corners of this world powered by the cutting-edge UNIGINE Engine that leverages the most advanced capabilities of graphics APIs and turns this bench into a visual masterpiece.

The Windforce does extremely well in the 1080p run of Unigine Heaven benchmark and sits above all the RTX 2070s and just below the RTX 2080. This is likely due to the different motherboard used during benching and how it handles boosting the 9900K.

At 4K, we see the Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Windforce fall back where we would expect it to be, in-between the RTX 2070s.

Unigine Superposition

Extreme performance and stability test for PC hardware: video card, power supply, cooling system. Check your rig in stock and overclocking modes with a real-life load! Also includes interactive experience in a beautiful, detailed environment.

A lone professor performs dangerous experiments in an abandoned classroom, day in and day out. Obsessed with inventions and discoveries beyond the wildest dreams, he strives to prove his ideas.

Once you come to this place in the early morning, you would not meet him there. The eerie thing is a loud bang from the laboratory heard a few moments ago. What was that? You have the only chance to cast some light upon this incident by going deeply into the matter of quantum theory: thorough visual inspection of professor's records and instruments will help to lift the veil on the mystery.

In the highly demanding 1080 Extreme Superposition benchmark, the Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Windforce holds an impressive average FPS of 39.15. At the optimized 4K benchmark, we see better framerates with an average of 51.76 FPS getting close to the coveted 60.
