DOOM Eternal is the newest game of the series that allows you to be the doom slayer. The id Tech 7 engine is well optimized and the game looks very good (at least for us). There is a lot of fine details in the surrounding environment. Because of the better optimization, the game can run even on iGPUs like AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 (Ryzen 4000) and low-end dGPUs as the NVIDIA GeForce MX350 (25W).
There is no doubt that this title will be smooth as butter on an RTX 2080 Super-based laptop but if you want something not-so-expensive the sweet spot is (probably) the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
Today we are going to compare the performance of the two TGP versions regarding this GPU – the 90W and the 115W variant, respectively.
GeForce RTX 2060 variants
|GeForce RTX 2060 [90W]||GeForce RTX 2060 [115W]|
|Base Clock (MHz)||1005||1005|
|Boost clock (MHz)||1350||1560 (+16%)|
|Memory clock (MHz)||14000||14000|
|Memory size (MB)||6GB||6GB|
|Memory bus width (bit)||192||192|
|TGP (Total Graphics Power)||90||115 (+28%)|
|Detailed specs||RTX 2060 [90W] Specs||RTX 2060 [115W] Specs|
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)
|Doom Eternal||Full HD, Low (Check settings)||Full HD, Medium (Check settings)||Full HD, U.Nightmare (Check settings)|
|GeForce RTX 2060 [90W]||121 fps||115 fps||109 fps|
|GeForce RTX 2060 [115W||186 fps (+54%)||168 fps (+46%)||146 fps (+34%)|
The bigger the TGP definitely brings more performance to the table and the NVIDIA RTX 2060 (115W) proves that. The latter is 45% faster on average compared to its smaller sibling – the NVIDIA RTX 2060 (90W). This is a pretty big performance gap and if you plan to play this game regularly, well, the 115W variant is just faster without any doubt.
However, if you don’t need so much power and if you can find a good deal with the 90W version that will save you some buck while the overall performance will remain decent – 109 FPS on Ultra Nightmare quality is not bad at all.
