GTX 1070 vs RTX 2060

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey!

 

I've been parting out a new PC build.  CPU of choice is a Ryzen 5 2600X.

For GPU, in my location (UAE) the GTX 1070 and RTX 2060 are similarly priced. As far as i've seen, the RTX 2060 offers ~11% more performance compared to the 1070. But, the 1070 has 2GB more VRAM.

I play a lot of Flight Simulation Games (Prepar3D v4, X-Plane 11, DCS etc.) so what will be the best choice for me?

I am employed as a Systems Engineer for a flight simulator and we use cards with max dedicated VRAM, So I recommend the 1070.
