[FPS Benchmarks] Need For Speed Heat on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W and 115W) – both are powerful enough for on Ultra but the 115W GPU is 12% faster

The Need For Speed franchise is one of the most popular out there when it comes to racing games. Expectedly, not every NFS game is a good one, there are ups and downs as always. On the other hand, Need For Speed Heat is one of the good titles that belong to the series.

The gameplay is fun and full of supercars, a lot of upgrades for them, police pursuits, and as you may expect – old-school arcade racing. The game uses Frostbite engine and the end result is a good looking product. This title isn’t light on system resources, but at least the game looks good even on Low settings.

If you need at least 60 FPS on Ultra you’re going to need a fast device. In addition to that, let’s see if the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W) and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (115W) can pass through the 60 FPS mark.

Without a doubt, the answer is yes – both GPUs are able to show more than 60 FPS on Ultra settings. If you don’t want to see any dips below this barrier, just switch to High which provides a decent image quality too.

However, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (115W) win the match with 12% more FPS on average.
