For these stock (well, factory overclocked) results you will notice the EVGA XC Ultra easily eclipsing the Founders Edition card, beginning with the DX12 tests:

DX11 results are next, with further gains for the XC Ultra:

Stock results are all well and good – and these are quite impressive – but since beginning my journey into hardware obsession I have been fascinated with the possibility of bridging the gap between graphics card SKUs, hoping to match the performance of that next card up the ladder. This is not always possible, of course, as GPUs are carefully segmented and not every card will have the same potential. Still, I had hoped that we might see an overclocked RTX 2060 come close to a stock RTX 2070, and to this end I set out to find the ceiling for our XC Ultra. Check out the results on the next page!
