Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition Benchmarks Show How Well The Entry Level RTX Card Performs

Nvidia 2070 Founder’s Edition has been released and it is the bare minimum requirement for Nvidia RTX real-time ray tracing. Here we are going to look into the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition benchmarks and how well it competes against cards of the previous generation as well as the rest of the Nvidia RTX family.

The hardware used in order to conduct these Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition benchmarks is as follows:

CPU: Intel Core i7-7820X @ 4.3GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte X299 AORUS Gaming 7 (F9g)
Power Supply: EVGA 1000 G3
Hard Disk: OCZ Toshiba RD400 (1TB)
Memory: G.Skill TridentZ DDR4-3200 4 x 8GB (16-18-18-38)
Case: NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition

The Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition is pretty overkill for 1080p gaming so we are only going to look at the 1440p and 4k numbers. You can check out the 1440p gaming benchmarks from AnandTech below:

Here we can see that the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition is able to run these games at 1440p. This is the worst case scenario because the games are running at max settings. Some lighter games like BF1 are able to run at very high FPS but other games that are more graphics intensive run at lower FPS.

You should note that the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition is able to run all these games at above 60 FPS at 1440p. The following are the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition benchmarks at 4K.

Here we can see that the Nvidia 2070 Founder’s Edition is a very capable card even at 4K. Keep in mind that these benchmarks are at the max setting so if you turn the settings down then you will be able to get better performance and you will be able to hit 60 FPS in some games. Maybe not all, but some.

The RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition Benchmarks show that it is a pretty powerful card but remember that the major selling point of these graphics cards is real-time ray tracing.

Unless we get games that support this feature we are unable to come to a verdict regarding whether or not you should buy the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition. But in terms of raw performance, the Nvidia RTX 2070 Founder’s Edition is pretty good.
