[FPS Benchmarks] ARK: Survival Evolved on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W and 115W) – just 5% more FPS for the 115W variant

ARK: Survival Evolved is an amusing game that offers single-player and multiplayer game modes. You are sent to an island – dinosaurs and other humans are roaming this land and they are searching for prey. In short – hunt or be hunted.

The game is built with the aid of the Unreal 4 engine. If you have a decent machine, you can enjoy some stunning views like forests, lakes, rivers, different animals, etc. This big open world will squeeze everything out of your system. The powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q can’t even reach 60 FPS on Ultra.

It’s time to see the performance levels of these two GPUs – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W) and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (115W).

Not much of a difference here – just 5% on average. You can hardly spot the contrast between these video cards. The most important thing is that the game is still beautiful on Medium and both GPUs can show more than 75 FPS in this mode.

Still, if you prefer more details, the High preset is playable too with around 60 FPS for both.
