NVIDIA’s expensive yet impressive new RTX range of GPUs are, without a doubt, for the PC gamer enthusiast and will cost you an arm or a leg. Therefore, many gamers are waiting for the mainstream RTX cards to appear. Now, in a GeForce RTX 2060 benchmark for Final Fantasy XV have leaked. If this GeForce RTX 2060 benchmark score is anything to go by, then the RTX 2060 should be roughly 30% faster than the Pascal-based GTX 1060 and a decent upgrade overall.
Before we get to the leaked benchmark which you can view below, keep in mind that during NVIDIA’s Q3 financial earnings call, it was confirmed that a Turing-based, mid-range product will hit the market sometime in Q1 of 2019. The long wait is due to NVIDIA first having to get rid of excessive mid-ranged Pascal-based stock.
So what does this mean for PC gamers who are waiting for a mid-range RTX upgrade? Well, you will have to wait a while longer and unfortunately, there are no official specifications available for the card. Further, the card will very likely not have Ray-Tracing support as even the RTX 2080 struggles with full Ray-Tracing enabled, so enabling this feature in a less powerful GPU wouldn’t make much sense.
Now, to the GeForce RTX 2060 benchmark in Final Fantasy XV which was first picked up by APISAK and shared on Twitter:
According to the leaked benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2060 will definitely be an upgrade to the GTX 1060, just don’t expect it to be a GTX 1070 killer or even a worthy upgrade.
It is important to note that you should always take leaked benchmark results with a grain of salt. However, this performance indicated by the benchmark does make sense if you look at the performance increase of, for example, the RTX 2080 over the GTX 1080. Further, driver support for unreleased GPUs and if the leaked benchmark is real, this is definitely an early testing GPU and probably not overclocked.
What do you think about the possible performance of the GeForce RTX 2060? Let us know in the comment section below.
