NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Thermal Output
We recorded the peak exhaust temperatures of those cards, to see how much heat they throw out. Take a look…
Note that these are not the recorded temperatures, but how much hotter the exhaust air is above ambient temperature.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Noise Level
In case you are wondering how loud the cooler is, we recorded it running Time Spy Extreme benchmark at the 4K resolution.
Listen to how quiet its dual-fan cooler is, even when the fans are spinning at maximum speed!
It is definitely much quieter than the new AMD Radeon RX 5700.
Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark
We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.
The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.
Time Spy – 2560 x 1440
Let’s see how much of an effect they have on the overall gaming score…
Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160
It was now 17% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and 20% faster than the RTX 2060.
And here are their overall gaming scores at 4K…
Again, its performance gap closed against the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in the overall score – it was now just 5% slower.
It was also 14% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and 17% faster than the RTX 2060.
