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.

MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z

The RTX 2060 Gaming Z does extremely well with it averaging over 60 FPS on 1440p. Though the RTX 2060 isn’t a 4K card, it still manages to pull a respectable average frame rate of 50.8.

At 1440p we see the Gaming Z sit right below the 1070ti but just edging out the ASUS STRIX Vega56 and EVGA 1070 SC.

At 4K, we sit right below the ASUS STRIX Vega 56 with 50.8 FPS.

Far Cry 5

Anything can happen. Everything will.

MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z

We really shine at 1440p with a minimum framerate of 70 and an average of 79.

Being the first RTX 2060 we have reviewed, we sit at the bottom of the chart right below the RTX 2070.

Dues Ex really pushes the RTX 2060 which just falls short at 1440p with an average 49.2 FPS. The Gaming Z does hit its stride in 1080p boasting an average frame rate of 70.4.

As expected, the RTX 2060 sits right below the RTX 2070 and easily defecting the Vega 64.

No surprises here with the RTX 2060 Gaming Z sitting right below the 2070s.

Still behind the RTX 2070s at 4K, but does close the gap down to 1 FPS.

Grand Theft Auto: V

"When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber, and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Grand Theft Auto V for PC offers players the option to explore the award-winning world of Los Santos and Blaine County in resolutions of up to 4k and beyond, as well as the chance to experience the game running at 60 frames per second."

Grand Theft Auto: V is the oldest game in our benchmark suite but still proves to be a heavy load on high settings and resolutions. The game offers players a huge range of PC-specific customization options, including over 25 separate configurable settings for texture quality, shaders, tessellation, anti-aliasing and more. It has the highest recommended system requirements in our game benchmark suite.

MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z

No matter what resolution you are running, the RTX 2060 Gaming Z run GTA V like a champ with an amazing 71 FPS at 4K.

As we have seen in other benchmarks, the Gaming Z sits below the RTX 2070s but does best the 1080ti at all resolutions.

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.

MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z

The RTX 2060 Gaming Z once again pulls an average over 60FPS at 1440p.

In the Division, we see the RTX 2060 surprisingly beat most of the RTX 2070’s with only the Zotac RTX 2070 Amp Extreme beating the Gaming Z.

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.

MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z

Even though the RTX 2060 isn’t designed as a 4K card it does manage to hit over 50 FPS in Metro: Last Light.
