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.
Even at the extreme preset, Zotac’s RTX 2070 Amp Extreme can swing 4K at more than 60 FPS. At 1440p, it manages almost 77 FPS on average and nearly 96 FPS at 1080.
At all resolutions, the Amp Extreme is easily the fastest RTX 2070 we’ve tested by a decent margin.
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.
Deus Ex is fully playable at 1440p but the Ultra preset is just a little too demanding at 4K to maintain good framerates on max settings.
In comparison, the RTX 2070 Amp Extreme is hot on the heels of the GTX 1080Ti.
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.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War comes in at 51 FPS on average at 4K at max settings which is playable, and 89 FPS at 1440p.
The gap between the RTX 2070 and 2080 cards really isn’t that wide and the Amp Extreme makes it seem pretty small.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It is the sequel to the 2013 video game Tomb Raider, a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. It was released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in November 2015 and for Microsoft Windows in January 2016. It is set to release for PlayStation 4 in the second half of 2016.
Rise of the Tomb Raider was officially announced in June 2014. The game's storyline follows Lara Croft as she ventures into Siberia in search of the legendary city of Kitezh, whilst battling a paramilitary organization that intends on beating her to the city's promise of immortality. Presented from a third-person perspective, the game primarily focuses on survival and combat, while the player may also explore its landscape and various optional tombs. Camilla Luddington returns to voice and performs her role as Lara.
Upon release, Rise of the Tomb Raider received positive reviews, with critics praising its graphics, gameplay, and characterization. It was the best-selling Xbox One game during Christmas week and had sold over one million copies by the end of 2015. Additional content was also released, including a new story campaign, a new gameplay mode, as well as new outfits and weapons for Lara.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is playable at all resolutions here, 1440p screams in at 94 FPS while 4K slides in a little over 50.
Zotac’s RTX 2070 Amp Extreme comes in 2nd place between the RTX 2070’s for the first and only time in our testing.
At 4K UHD, the 2070 Amp Extreme is fighting its way through GTX 1080’s and closing in on the RTX 2080 range.
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.
At our settings, the RTX 2070 can handle 4K UHD and below without trying too hard.
When pitted against the pack, the Amp Extreme card is closing in on the RTX 2080 cards.
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.
We’ll skip the lower end 1080p run and just cut to the chase at 4K and high settings. Even with this demanding load, Zotac’s RTX 2070 Amp Extreme manages to stay above 60 FPS.
