Battlefield V

Battlefield V is a first-person shooter EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield V is the latest games in the Battlefield series. Battlefield V takes place during World War 2. It has both a single player and an online portion. For this review, we tested part of Battlefield V single player, War Stories. The section that was tested was the second act of the Nordlys War Story. You play a young woman who is part of the Norwegian resistance whose mission it is to save her mother and help destroy a key component the Germans need to complete their atomic bomb. Battle Fiend 5 was one of the first games to support the new Ray Tracing feature from Nvidia. This game was tested with both DXR on and DXR off. The charts show a comparison between the GTX 1070 TI FTW 2 at its ultra-preset and the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP at the games high preset. The charts show a comparison between the GTX 1070 TI FTW 2 at its ultra-preset and the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP at the games high preset.

Battlefield V was the one game that the testing wasn’t apples to apples. The Zotac RTX 2060 AMP was tested on the games high preset where the 1070 TI FTW2 was tested on the games ultra preset. This was mainly due to the game being unplayable in 4k on the ultra preset with DXR and I try to benchmark each game at its highest possible setting to be playable in all  resolutions we test. Also, I no longer had access to the 1070 TI. All testing for Battlefield V was done in DX12 mode. So, as you can see from the charts, the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP did very well in all resolutions on the games high preset. In 1080p, the game averaged 118 FPS and 85 FPS in 1440p. In 4k, the game averaged 46 FPS. This is under the magic number of 60, but still very playable. With DXR  turned on, it was a different story.

We tested Battlefield V on the games high preset in 1080p with DXR on. We tested all four DXR presets as well. The DXR settings are low, medium, high and ultra. As you can see from the chart, DXR really puts a strain on your system. The average FPS dropped to only 56 with DXR on low. With DXR on ultra, in 1080p, the the average was only 30 FPS. So, DXR does make the game look amazing, put it really puts a strain on your system. As for DLSS, the results were all over the place, so these results weren’t included. The only reason I could come up with is the fact DLSS is done by AI which learns over time. This is the only reason I could come up with as to why the several runs I did with DLSS enabled were so far from each other.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing game with first-person shooter and stealth mechanics that released in 2016. Set two years after Human Revolution in 2029, the world is divided between normal humans and those with advanced, controversial artificial organs called augmentations. You take up the role as Adam Jensen, a double agent for the hacker group Juggernaut Collective, who is equipped with the latest and most advanced augmentation technology. This game is beautiful and still very demanding on your system. The section benchmarked was near the beginning of the game, after the tutorial.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a beautiful game that is very demanding on your system. Like Battlefield V, this game was also benchmarked in DX12 mode. However, this game was benchmarked on the games highest preset. In 1080p, the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP averaged 92 FPS and on 1440p, it averaged 74 FPS. Both, well above 60 FPS. However, when we switched to 4k, the average dropped to just 37 FPS. This didn’t seem right, so I tested Deus Ex in 4k resolution 5 times. All were close to the same. As the charts show, the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP easily beat out the 1070 TI FTW2 in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided which averaged 70 FPS in 1080p, 48 FPS in 1440p and only 26 FPS in 4k.

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 is the latest is the far cry series. It takes place in the fictional Hope County Montana. You play the role of the un-names deputy who’s sent to arrest Joseph Seed, the leader of the dangerous Edens Gate Cult. However, thing do not go as planned and you spend the game trapped in Hope County attempting to take out Joseph and the rest of his family as they attempt to take over the entire county. Far Cry 5 was released in 2018. Ubisoft has developed a beautiful open world with amazing visuals. However, the game is very demanding on even the most powerful systems. This game was tested with the in-game benchmark, as well as near the beginning of the game, when you first leave the bunker owned by Dutch as you attempt to clear his island of cult members.

I was very impressed with the performance of Far Cry 5 on the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP. All resolutions were tested on the games ultra preset with HD textures enabled. The 2060 AMP and the 1070TI FTW2 were very close in performance with the 2060 AMP just barely beating out the 1070 ti in this game,  They were so close, the results were in the margin of error. In 1080p, the 2060 AMP averaged 108 FPS. This was only 3 FPS above the 105 FPS average of the 1070 TI FTW2. In 1440p, the two cards were even closer with the 2060 AMP averaging 77 FPS and the 1070 TI averaging 75 FPS. In 4k, both cards averaged 40 FPS.

Final Fantasy XV

Fans of the Final Fantasy series waited well over a decade for this game to release. Final Fantasy XV is an open-world action role-playing game. You play as the main protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum during his journey across the world of Eos. Final Fantasy XV was developed and published by Square Enix as part of the long-running Final Fantasy series that first started on the original NES back in the late 1980s. The section that was benchmarked was the first section near the start of the game, where there was actual combat.

Final Fantasy XV was one of the few games or benchmarks tested where the 1070 ti beat out the 2060 AMP. Both were tested on the games ultra preset. But again, the two cards were very close. In 1080p, the Zotac RTX 2060 AMP averaged 85 FPS. In 1440p, the 2060 AMP averaged 66 FPS and in 4k, the game averaged only 37 FPS. The only resolution that you can turn RTX on for Final Fantasy XV is in 4k. With RTX on, the game wasn’t playable. However, with DLSS, it was. However, there was a noticeable downgrade in quality with DLSS enabled. So, the increase to an average of 44 FPS, to me, wasn’t worth it. I’d rather just play in 4k without RTX and DLSS.
