Hey! Looking to upgrade my GPU as I'm getting back into gaming and definitely starting to struggle in the newer games😊
I have narrowed it down to either a GTX1070 or an RTX2060 as the price seems to be fairly similar as well as the performance on benchmarks.
Which would be the better choice? The 1070 has 8GB of memory and the 2060 6GB, will this matter?
Current specs are:
  • GTX 970
  • i7-4770k, 4GHz.
  • 16GB DDR3 1866MHz RAM
  • Chieftec Nitro Series 750W PSU(80 plus bronze standard)

Rtx 2060 for gaming 1080p and for high-range rtx (Ray tracing effects) , gtx 1070 for rendering or 4k gaming.

Nvidia announced they'll enable Ray tracing on models like the gtx 1070, in April. So you'll get part of the rtx glory (it's said that the drivers update that will enable rtx on the gtx models, will work as a low to mid range rtx)

GTX 1070Ti >= RTX 2060 > GTX 1070.

2060 and 1070 Ti has similar performance as of today but 1070Ti has more cores and RAM which will be useful in the long run.

Between 2060 and 1070, get the 2060 hands down.
