In this GTX 1070 Ti vs RTX 2060 comparison review, we will take a detailed look on these two great graphic cards from Nvidia on their performance on games.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is a HD and VR ready gaming GPU. It was released in 4th quarter of 2017 and was the successor of the GTX 1070 the number one GPU based on market share. The GPU was based on the 16nm Pascal architecture just like its predecessor.
The GTX 2060 is an addition to the RTX series of Nvidia. The GPU is based on the Turing architecture and was released on the 1st quarter of 2019. This GPU has a AI enhanced graphics feature and a real time ray tracing which is intended to deliver more realistic gaming experience.
The GTX 1070 Ti was codenamed GP104-300-A1, it is a cut down GTX 1080. While the RTX 2060 is codenamed TU106. The core speed of the GTX 1070 Ti is at 1607 MHz and can be boosted up to 1683 MHz. While the RTX 2060 has a core speed of 1365 MHZ lower compared to the 1070 Ti and can be boosted up to 1680 MHz. Both GPU has great driver support.
Memory speed of the GTX 1070 Ti is at 2002 MHz higher than the RTX 2060 in which it has 1750 MHz. The memory bus for the 1070 Ti is 256-bit higher compared to the 192-bit of the 2060. Memory type of the 1070 Ti is the older GDDR5 while the 2060 has the newer GDDR6.
Memory bandwidth of the GTX 1070 Ti is lower compared to the RTX 2060. The 1070 Ti bandwidth at 256.3GB/sec while the 2060 has 336GB/sec.
Shader processing units of the 1070 Ti is greater compare to the 2060. It has 2304 units while the 2060 has 1920 units. Texture mapping, texture rate, render output units and pixel rate on the GTX 1070 Ti is greater compared to the RTX 2060.
Let us continue to our next category on this GTX 1070 Ti vs RTX 2060 comparison review.
The GTX 1070 Ti is with a rated board TDP of 180W while the RTX 2060 is with a rated board TDP of 160W. The 1070 Ti requires at least a 500W PSU while the 2060 requires at least 450W of PSU. Both need one available 8-pin connector for power.
The GTX 1070 Ti is a high-end performance GPU. It is capable of gaming 1440p and can play modern AAA games at high graphics settings and it can deliver great game FPS.
The RTX 2060 is a GPU from the RTX series that gives value for money. It surpasses the other cards on the GTX series on this category.
We tested these two graphic cards by determining their game FPS. We tested both on CSGO, Fortnite, PUBG, GTA V, League of Legends, Overwatch, Battlefield 1, The Witcher 3, DOTA 2, World of Warcraft and Minecraft.
In the test we have noted significant difference in performance on these games. We found out that GTX 1070 Ti have a significant lead on the RTX 2060 in the game Battlefield 1.
While the RTX 2060 have significant lead in terms of game FPS on the games like Fortnite, PUBG and Minecraft.
These two are pretty close if you take consideration the other aspects aside from game FPS. The price of both are on the same level. They rank 21st and 22nd respectively on the Userbenchmark list of GPUs.
But the deciding factor for me is the game FPS and I give it to RTX 2060. It edges the GTX 1070 Ti on 3 games to 1.
That is it for my GTX 1070 Ti vs RTX 2060 comparison review. Hope you like it!
