Shadow of the Tomb Raider
First note that in the graph the video cards are positioned by price, from the most expensive video card to the least expensive video card based on MSRP. The bar graphs in orange show the new SUPER card performance.
In the graph above we are using the latest version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The game is running in DX12 and we have all of the in-game settings at their maximum values for graphics. We are testing at 1440p. We are using the built-in benchmark for testing results and we verified playability in gameplay. Feel free to test your video cards performance and see how it compares against ours.
In this game all video cards do well at 1440p, but the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and up provide much better performance all around while the regular RTX 2060 suffers a bit. We once again see the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER outperforming the GTX 1080 Ti. The RTX 2070 SUPER is about 12% faster than the RTX 2070 FE. The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is 19% faster than the RTX 2060 here. It is also close in performance to RTX 2070 SUPER.
At 1080p all video cards are playable, and we see the same pattern continue. At 1080p the RTX 2060 SUPER offers a great level of performance for the price!
We took it one step further and went ahead and enabled “Ultra” ray traced shadow quality in this game. Even with this feature enabled the game is still playable on the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and upwards. The regular RTX 2060 has more trouble with ray tracing performance.
