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 RTX 2080 Super

Want to play Control at 2560×1440 with ray tracing switched on? The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super is the card you’re going to need to get a semi-decent experience. I say semi-decent, as even this monstrously expensive graphics card was really only comfortable handling Medium ray tracing on Medium quality at this resolution, averaging 51fps.

Bump up the ray tracing to High, and you’re still only looking at an average of 39fps. With an RTX 2080 Super! Madness. It can, at least, hit a consistent 60fps without ray tracing at this resolution, averaging a very agreeable 63fps on High quality, and 77fps on Medium.

Don’t think about trying to play Control at 4K with this card, though, as even trying to play on Medium only yielded an average of 41fps. Sure, you can get an average of 63fps on Low at 4K, but that would be doing a disservice to this marvelous looking game.

If you really want to turn everything up to eleven, then High at 1920×1080 is (sadly) once again your best bet. At this resolution, the RTX 2080 Super’s got enough firepower to run Medium ray tracing at an average of 69fps, while High ray tracing comes in at an average of 54fps.
