Control RTX: A guide to ray tracing and what you need to get the best performance

It's all under control

Control RTX performance: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060

As I mentioned up the top there, the RTX 2060 is perfectly capable of running Control on High at an average of 60fps at 1920×1080. Switch on Medium ray tracing, however, and that average drops to 45fps, while High ray tracing pushes it even lower to an average of 35fps.

Naturally, dropping the quality down to Medium at 1080p did help improve the ray tracing frame rate, with Medium coming in at an average of 50fps, but High only just about broke the 40fps mark.

Unsurprisingly, then, perhaps, ray tracing at 2560×1440 is pretty much out of the question on this card, as even playing on the regular Medium quality preset without any ray tracing enabled only yielded an average of 51fps. High, meanwhile, came in at an average of 41fps. I mean, ray tracing is doable on Medium at 1440p, as long as you’re okay with only having a similarly Medium ray tracing experience at an average of 34fps.

Ultimately, though, you’re going to want to stick to playing Control at 1920×1080 if you’re an RTX 2060 owner.
