GPU Performance Scaling - RDNA/Navi VS Turing at 1440p

Today we will start our graphics card comparisons with AMD's Navi-powered Radeon RX 5700 and Nvidia Turing-powered Geforce RTX 2060, both of which are available for under £400. 

Looking at each of GRID's graphical presets at a resolution of 1440p, we can see that both graphics cards are capable of 1440p 60+FPS gameplay during daytime races. However, when the rain starts both graphics cards can drop into the low 50s. Dropping the game to high settings will result in a huge increase in game performance while producing relatively few graphical downsides. In our eyes, this framerate boost is more than worth the visual consequences, especially if you are using a high refresh rate 1440p monitor.   

Under all presets, GRID 2019's weather effects have a significant impact on game performance, showcasing how demanding the game's weather effects can be.

Was interesting to see the 5700xt so close to the 2070S and with a nicer imageQuote

With dx11 my vega is 9% faster. However with dx12, i can use radeon image sharpening.
Dx11 is also better with my GTX980. I am waiting for a Sli profile.

The game looks ok but Forza 7 or Forza horizon 4, destroy GRID in term of visual quality and performanceQuote

Feels bad to give rather harsh critique to people whose word I take as canon in other hardware like cases, but these performance comparison videos don't convey much information even if you overlay the FPS of each benchmark run.


There should be more, even if it's just fraps bench viewer (link) graph, FCAT being the gold standard, but when DigitalOcean gives pretty deep analysis of where the GPUs fare well or badly compared to their competition, there's not much these offer over their analysis. And I understand the massive amount of work involved in that, but at the moment this looks like a whole lot of extra work for content which others do better.Quote

What I'll say here is that you can't expect anyone that's starting something new to come out with AAA-class content immediately. It takes time to learn things and as we learn more things will get better.

If you can, please PM me some links to this DigitalOcean. I've never heard of them and would like to see what they can do. Googling them isn't showing me anything outside of web hosting services.Quote
