Performance Results: 2560 x 1440

The GeForce RTX 2070 has no trouble at 2560 x 1440. If you own a high-refresh-rate QHD monitor, expect Asus’ implementation to serve up blistering frame rates in today’s games at their most taxing quality settings.

The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2070 O8G Gaming is rated for 105 MHz more than Nvidia’s Founders Edition card in Gaming mode and 135 MHz more in OC mode. Not surprisingly, it’s measurably faster. Some enthusiasts might consider the $30 premium to be worth paying. Others will look to the least expensive 2070s priced around $500/£435 and spend the difference elsewhere. After all, Gigabyte's card is every bit as fast at this resolution.
