Control

We are introducing a new game into our mix.  We are using the latest version of the new game Control.  For our testing we are using the in-game quality presets for overall graphics and also using the NV Ray Tracing preset for cards that support NVIDIA Ray Tracing.  We are running this game in DX12.  We are gathering real-world gameplay utilizing a custom run-through in the Cafeteria and Dead Letters area in the game with combat.    

In this game we found 1440p was the preferred resolution with the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING video card for the best gameplay experience.  In this graph we are showing 1440p with the “High” graphics preset, but no Ray Tracing yet.  The standard GeForce RTX 2070 FE struggles to provide playable performance.  However, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING certainly does provide playable performance.  It provides a 21% performance increase over the RTX 2070 FE. 

The ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING also provides a 3% improvement over the RTX 2070 SUPER FE.  However, when we overclock the ASSU ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING then its performance is 11% faster than the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE. 

In this graph we wanted to enabled “Medium” NV Ray Tracing preset with “High” game graphics.  You can see Ray Tracing really puts a burden on performance, even at just Medium.  Still, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING video card offers much more performance over the GeForce RTX 2070 FE.

To lessen the burden on performance and make Ray Tracing more playable we lowered the game settings to “Low” graphics preset.  Now the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER O8G GAMING Overclocked is playable with “Medium” Ray Tracing.  It just takes having to lower the other in-game settings to Low Preset.  Overclocking the RTX 2070 SUPER really does help performance a lot here though.  It’s 11% faster than the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE.
