Rise Of The Tomb Raider and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
Now we’re getting into the territory of a game more optimized for the higher performance GPUs. Rise of the Tomb Raider is an awesome game and part of a long lasting franchise. It is a little older as Shadow of the Tomb Raider just launched but it still deserves to be included.
Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the tomb raider show almost linear scaling. Just looking at the Founders edition vs the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini, we quickly see that the older of the two sees the Zotac averaging a 4 – 8% gain in FPS while the newer title averages 3-5% depending upon resolution.
Assassins Creed Origins is the newest entry into the long lineage of Assassins Creed games. It takes place in ancient Egypt and has some amazing visuals and is very taxing on your graphics subsystem.
Here for Assassins Creed we see that the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini pulls ahead of the RTX 2070 Founders Edition by 2 – 3% in average FPS.
Far Cry has been a great series of games and the newest takes on a cult-like group in the rural USA. This entry into the Far Cry franchise has some great visuals and can definitely put your GPU to work being a much newer game.
Once again, we see more of the same as the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini pulls a lead of up to 5% over the Founders Edition model. While I would not recommend Far Cry 5 at 4K maxed on any model 2070, at 1440p and lower it does very well.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is an awesome squad-based shooter which has tons of varying terrain, vehicle play and plenty of eye candy via explosions and particle effects to make your GPU cry.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the last of our gaming tests, and the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini once again does not disappoint. The little Zotac pulls an average of 3% at every resolution average FPS lead over the Founders Edition RTX 2070.
Now let’s see what happens as we try to turn up the wick on the Zotac RTX 2070 Mini and overclock it to its edge.
