RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 Which is better?

Choosing a graphics card is one of the most difficult things nowadays and if you’re a serious PC gamer then you are definitely finding a value for money GPU for your gaming PC. There are many options available in the market and the best value for money GPU i.e. available right now is RTX 20 series that contains GPUs like RTX 2060 and RTX 2070. Here we will to a comparison between these two GPUs RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 and let you know which one is better for you to buy.

Now the question is which you should buy or which one is better to buy. So here we will do a comparison between RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 and tell you which one is better and why. According to price the RTX 2060 provides you with the best 1440p gaming under that price range on the other side, RTX 2070 is much better than 2060 but the price is also quite high.

So when we do a comparison we will tell you more technical features and price of both the GPUs so you can easily decide which one fits your pocket and which one is best for you to buy right now for your gaming PC build. With the shortage of Graphics cards in the market, it is really difficult to find one right now but if you search for it in the offline market you can definitely get one.

Let’s move to the main topic and discuss more both 20 series GPU and help you to buy one that suits more to you according to your choice and preference for the graphics card.

RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070

Below we will compare RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 step by step we will let you know about every single detail of both GPUs.

Specifications and Features:

Both the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 GPUs are based on Turing architecture and build on the 12nm process and TU106. Morethan that both the GPUs support DirectX 12 Ultimate. Because of the Turing architecture both RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 combines multiple types of specialized processor cores, enabling the implementation of real-time ray tracing.

The graphic processor used here is TU106 but RTX 2070 has a fully unlocked processor whereas RTX 2060 doesn’t. Due to the fully unlocked graphic processor, RTX 2070 has all 2304 CUDA Cores, 144 texture mapping units, and 64 render output units. Which makes it more superior and better GPU than RTX 2060. As for the RTX 2060, Nvidia disabled some shading units and it features only 1920 CUDA Cores, 120 texture mapping units, and 64 render output units.

These small comparisons show that RTX 2070 is a much better GPU than RTX 2060 but in terms of Power Consumption or TDP, both cards consume approx. same TDP. RTX 2060 has a TDP of 160W whereas RTX 2070 has a TDP of 175W which is not a big difference and you can also run both the GPUs with only 550W PSU.

Now let’s compare RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 on the basis of GPU Memory or VRAM of the cards. Both cards have GDDR6 memory but vary in both cards. The GDDR6 memory used for RTX 2060 is 6GB VRAM whereas the GDDR6 memory used for RTX 2070 is 8GB VRAM. The extra 2GB VRAM in RTX 2070 can only be noticed or seen by the players while playing games on 4K resolutions.

As for the Interface and bandwidth used for both the cards. The RTX 2060 features a 192-bit interface, with a bandwidth of 336 Gb/s. Whereas the RTX 2070 features a 256-bit interface, with a bandwidth of 448 Gb/s.

Gaming Performance Comparison Table:

Below are some of the popular game titles’ performances we stated while playing games at the highest graphics with a resolution of 1440p.

Red Dead Redemption 23744

The above gaming FPS comparison shows us the difference in gaming performance between the two GPUs. And if compare then RTX 2070 performance easily surpass RTX 2060 performance but if we consider the pricing of both the GPUs the difference is not too much.

That means if your budget is tight and don’t want to spend more money then you can choose RTX 2060 as a better choice. But if you can spend more money and don’t want to sacrifice the performance then RTX 2070 is a better choice.

Price Comparison:

As for the pricing of both the GPUs, there is a huge difference in pricing yet the performance is almost the same until 1080p gaming. The RTX 2060 costs you around $699 at present we don’t know the pricing after we publish the article as the pricing of the GPUs is not still these days. As for the RTX 2070, the price is almost $849 which costs around $150 more than the RTX 2070.

So if you want to save money then RTX 2060 is a better choice on the other hand if you want to play higher resolution games with more FPS then RTX 2070 is a better choice.
