GPU for High FPS 144Hz & 240Hz Gaming

Monitors with 144 Hz or more are no longer a rarity.

If you want to achieve the optimal frame rates for this, you need a very fast graphics card.

The test shows that FPS beyond 144 Hertz can often only be achieved with high graphic losses even on high-end GPUs.

Before the turn of the millennium, it was often already a question of whether a title would run at all, and from 30 FPS there was talk of very good playability.

With the advent of Full-HD displays with 60 Hertz as standard, 60 FPS or more quickly established themselves as the goal to be achieved.

Higher frame rates still brought advantages in the control with deactivated Vsync, but hardly anything changed in the actual “gaming experience”.

Since meanwhile especially gaming monitors come along with 144 Hz and partly even higher refresh rates, the advantages are much bigger on corresponding displays.

Of course, the effect strongly depends on the game, but especially fast titles with a direct control can let up a lot more game flow at three-digit frame rates.

Now there are two possibilities to benefit from more than 60 FPS.

A variable refresh rate (Adaptive Sync (FreeSync) or G-Sync) is especially helpful, because then the frame rate doesn’t necessarily have to be very high and the monitor is still synchronized with the graphics card’s image output throughout.

This also has the advantage that the graphics quality can remain at a high level.

If the computer manages higher frame rates, this is practically a bonus.

The goal: At least 144 FPS for all games

240 FPS & 144Hz GPU

The other variant is to always be as close as possible, or even better, above the maximum refresh rate of a monitor, at the expense of the graphics quality.

For example, if a screen can operate at 144 Hz, the frame rate should always be around or better slightly above 144 FPS.

However, the graphics quality in current games has to be reduced for this, sometimes massively, and the demands on the graphics card remain very high.

Below the current GPU upper class, this should not even be attempted in AAA games, games like the graphically undemanding long runner Counter-Strike: GO are prominent exceptions.

This article focuses on the more demanding titles.

Most graphics cards fail immediately for this task.

GeForce RTX 2070 Super, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Radeon RX 5700 XT have to prove themselves in the test.

Moreover, the question arises whether there are possibly differences in the distances between the individual models.

The requirements to classic GPU tests are different

The requirements differ significantly from those of the classic graphics card tests.

Instead of always loading the test subjects with maximum details, it is now necessary that they still manage to use all the installed units to their full capacity even with reduced resolution and reduced details.

And in order to achieve the high frame rates, it is also necessary for the graphics cards to be able to cope with an increasing CPU limit.

How well the four candidates manage this is clarified by the test.

The test system, the graphics cards and the games

The following graphics card benchmarks have been performed on an Intel Core i9-9900K running with the default settings.

The test system can access a total of 32 gigabytes of RAM at a speed of DDR4-3200 (14-14-14-32).

Windows June 2020 Update (Version 1909) including all available patches is installed.

Adrenalin 20.4.2 and the GeForce 442.87 were used as drivers.

The graphics cards are a Radeon RX 5700 XT, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2070 Super and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

All four models work according to AMDs or Nvidia’s reference specifications.

The games and their settings

Seven games were used in the article for the benchmarks, whereby titles were deliberately selected that clearly benefit from a high frame rate.

These are Borderlands 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Destiny 2, Doom Eternal, F1 2019, Fortnite as well as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, a mixture of first-person shooter, action and racing game and at the same time a mix of AAA and e-sports titles.

Even on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the maximum graphic details usually don’t come close to the required frame rates.

Accordingly, the detail levels for the test have been significantly reduced.

The goal was to get roughly into the desired frame regions on the GeForce RTX 2070 Super.

The exact settings can be found in the following table.

It’s obvious at first glance that the graphics quality had to be massively reduced almost throughout.

Benchmarks in Full HD with 144 FPS

With the changed requirement profile, the final results of the benchmarks also differ from the usual.

Thus, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is still faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT even in 1,920 × 1,080 with reduced graphic details and the targeted 144 FPS, but it approaches up to 3 percent, whereas the gap is usually 10 percent under a significantly higher GPU load.

Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is 2 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which is within the normal range.

And the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is 27 percent faster than the smaller Turing card, which is also the usual distance.

If you look at the game selection, the used test track doesn’t particularly favor AMD or Nvidia graphic cards.

Since the processor doesn’t seem to play a particularly decisive role either – otherwise the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti would have had to run into major problems – the result can apparently be explained by the reduced graphics details and the resulting different demands on the GPU.

Speaking of the CPU: It doesn’t play a general role in the scenario, but it does in individual cases.

In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, for example, the graphics cards get into a CPU limit, from which the Radeon RX 5700 XT emerges as the narrow winner.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti only works similarly fast in this scenario.

But the mentioned title is not the reason for the rating result, because even if you leave it out of the final result, nothing changes in the shrunken intervals.

Fast enough for Full HD at 144 FPS with reduced details?

Benchmarks in Full HD with 240 FPS

To achieve 240 FPS in 1920 × 1080, the graphic details must be minimized almost all the way through.

And then it’s harder than usual for the Core i9-9900K used to load the GPUs.

For this reason, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is only about 13 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super in this scenario, and only 9 percent faster in the frametimes.

As a quasi-compensation, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super can distinguish itself a bit better from the Radeon RX 5700 XT with a plus of 5 percent, whereas the gap still remains relatively small.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is just as fast as the AMD accelerator.

In the individual games, not only Shadow of the Tomb Raider is then CPU-limited anymore, because Borderlands 3, Destiny 2, F1 2019 and Fortnite also get into the processor’s constraints, even if there is still some scaling between the products.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Doom Eternal, however, the graphics card remains the only decisive factor for performance.

Benchmarks in WQHD with 144 FPS

In the benchmarks at 2,560 × 1,440 with the goal of 144 FPS, the GPU load then increases again.

This is not only due to the higher resolution, but also to the partly higher graphic details.

Then the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti can at least distinguish itself from the GeForce RTX 2070 Super by 24 percent, works 4 percent faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT and is within the usual range for the test.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti delivers as many FPS as the AMD graphics card.

However, the CPU limit still hits in WQHD if you want to achieve three-digit frame rates throughout.

In Destiny 2, the graphics cards are slowed down by the processor and the worst case scenario, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is still exclusively dependent on the CPU.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT continues to do the job best and again places itself in the game just ahead of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

Benchmarks in Ultra HD with 144 FPS

There is a GPU limit in 3,840 × 2,160 despite the lowest graphics detail level, which is why the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti can set itself apart from the GeForce RTX 2070 Super by 25 percent.

With so many pixels, the lead of the GeForce RTX 2070 over the Radeon RX 5700 XT stabilizes at 7 percent, which is not quite at the classic “AAA distance”, but at least marches in this direction.

And one may hardly believe it, but in the resolution the GPU has a bit more to say in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is 21 percent ahead of the GeForce RTX 2070 Super.

The difference to the Radeon RX 5700 XT is only 19 percent, but at least there is a difference again.

144 FPS in graphically more elaborate titles aren’t a self-runner – not even in Full HD with a very fast graphics card.

Of course there are games in which such high frame rates can be achieved (without problems) even with high graphic details, the benchmark series on popular online multiplayer titles contains a whole range of them.

However, in titles that are not already “ex works” designed for the lowest possible requirements, they have to be reduced – and that partly significantly.

If you want to play at consistently high frame rates, you need not only the right monitor, but above all a fast graphics card.

At the latest from 240 FPS in 1,920 × 1,080 or 144 FPS in 2,560 × 1,440, you should immediately go for a high-end model, everything else is quite hopeless apart from Counter-Strike: GO.

Thus the choice of graphics cards is very limited. The editors recommend at least a GeForce RTX 2070 Super or a Radeon RX 5700 XT.

Variable refresh rates are clearly more practical

240 FPS & 144Hz GPU

On the other hand, it is much more relaxed if you use variable refresh rates and do not want to achieve 144 FPS or more throughout.

Because more than 60 FPS can then also be easily achieved in WQHD at higher detail levels without the need for a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

This approach is therefore also the recommendation of the editorial staff.

Frame rates between 60 and 144 FPS are often possible without problems or only with small graphic restrictions apart from Ultra HD, and this is the range in which most better G-Sync or FreeSync monitors operate today.

The consistently high frame rates are only worthwhile if the focus is on a single game and then hardware can be purchased specifically.

For a larger selection of games, 144 FPS or more is impractical and has numerous disadvantages.

But not only the graphic card is strongly demanded when playing with high frame rates, it also has to be a fast processor.

Even if the test didn’t focus on this, it shows that especially for Full HD with 240 FPS, the CPU is just as important as the GPU.

So, if you’re looking for the highest FPS with minimal details, RAM-OC can also be another set screw for you in the end.

In the scenario with 144 FPS in Full HD, WQHD and Ultra HD, on the other hand, the graphics card plays the bigger role, but its requirement profile differs significantly in comparison to classic gaming with high details at around 60 FPS.

There are slight shifts in the distances

This also causes shifts in the ranking.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is still faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT in all test scenarios.

But apparently, the AMD graphics card copes with the requirements a bit better than the competing products from Nvidia, because the gap turns out smaller than usual.

This can have various reasons.

Conceivable are a better utilization of the execution units with low graphic details, a better utilization of the units in the increasing CPU limit or graphic details that the Radeon doesn’t like and then doesn’t need to be calculated.

Whatever the reason, the behavior is evident in all test games and is therefore no exception.

Graphics Card Buyer’s Guide: What you need to pay attention to

Graphics Card Buyer's Guide

AMD and Nvidia are the permanent rivals in the graphics card market.

So far, so clear – but then it gets complicated.

The graphics processors (GPUs) from AMD and Nvidia are in fact in countless graphics cards, with prices ranging from less than 100 to well over 1000 Dollar.

In addition, there are partly very similar product names and cryptic technical terms.

This is where our graphics card purchasing advice 2020 comes in:

We show you in which price range you will find the optimal graphics card and which equipment criteria are important.

Buy a graphics card: What you need to pay attention to

In the purchase advice we concentrate on GPUs, because graphics card providers such as Asus, Gigabyte, MSI or Sapphire cannot change anything in the basic design of the GPUs.

However, the providers are by no means unimportant: They come back into play once a certain GPU has been chosen.

The performance of the graphics card then depends on features such as clock speed and memory size, which is why we also take a closer look at this in our recommendations.

In addition, there are other virtues such as the cooling system and power consumption.

The latter is important to estimate whether the power supply built into the PC can deliver enough power for the graphics card.

However, you can leave the memory type out of the purchase checklist.

Even current entry-level cards now rely on the fast GDDR5-RAM (Graphics Double Data Rate), which is specially designed for graphics accelerators, and can thus achieve memory bandwidths of 100 GB/s and sometimes even considerably more.

The only outlier in the market overview: the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with “only” 84 GB/s.

But even this memory bandwidth is already so high that there isn’t a performance loss due to supposedly too slow RAM.

You don’t have to give the CPU a high priority either.

For example, in order to be able to play smoothly with a high-end graphics card in a 4K resolution, depending on the TItel, a cheap entry-level CPU such as the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X (around 140 Dollar) can be sufficient.

The most expensive solution is actually only needed if maximum refresh rates are required at lower resolutions like Full HD. Then CPU and GPU must come from the high-end range.

Current market situation: Nvidia RTX with raytracing

At AMD, the current GPU generations are called Radeon RX 500 (Polaris architecture) and Radeon RX Vega (Vega architecture), both available since mid-2017.

Nvidia already introduced its GPUs of the still current GeForce 10 series (Pascal architecture) in mid-2016, but brought a breath of fresh air into the game with the GeForce 20 series in fall 2018.

But AMD is not sleeping and rumor has it that they will follow up with a new edition of the Polaris GPUs in November.

The three available GeForce 20 graphics cards RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti offer two features that are especially exciting for gamers in addition to the new GDDR6 memory type: Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), an AI-supported edge smoothing process, as well as special ray tracing calculation kernels, which allow more realistic lighting and shadows to be calculated in real time.

However, gamers currently have little use for the special functions of the expensive GeForce 20 cards, which are all in the high-end class, because they are not yet supported by almost any game.

One of the very few exceptions is Battlefield 5, released in mid-November, which implements the real-time ray tracing of the Geforce RTX.

AMD vs. Nvidia: FreeSync and G-Sync in comparison

AMD and Nvidia meet each other with their products in terms of price and performance on an equal footing, but can also bring special advantages to the field in addition to standards like HDR support.

Depending on your system configuration, it may automatically result that the new graphics card may only come from one of the two suppliers.

This can be seen in a very important feature of the graphics card for gamers, the Adaptive Sync method.

With Adaptive Sync, modern graphics cards dynamically adapt their frame rate to the refresh rate of the monitor, thus preventing jitter and other disturbing effects such as tearing.

AMD relies on the adaptive sync method FreeSync for its pixel accelerators and thus competes with Nvidia G-Sync.

Both are based on a very similar principle, but each requires an appropriately equipped monitor and are incompatible with each other.

If you are using a monitor that supports Nvidia G-Sync, an AMD graphics card makes little sense because it cannot exploit its FreeSync advantage here.

On the other hand, for a FreeSync-compatible monitor, only an AMD graphics card can be used as a video player.

Both sync methods already work with the entry level models of both manufacturers.

The only disadvantage for Nvidia:

Due to license fees, G-Sync monitors are more expensive and less widespread than displays with the license-free FreeSync.
