[FPS Benchmarks] Darksiders Genesis on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W and 115W) – the 115W GPU wins but the smaller one is fast too

Darksiders Genesis offers fun gameplay and good visuals. The title isn’t too hardware-taxing – Low settings are possible on low-end machines with iGPUs like AMD RX Vega 7 (Renoir C6, Ryzen 4000). Ultra details look good and a mid-range video card is enough for this preset.

And when we are still talking about mid-rangers, let’s take a look at the  NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (90W) and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (115W). These are the fastest middle-class graphics solutions that come from the green team.

Their TGP levels seem fine for Darksiders Genesis but let’s see how far ahead is the 115W variant.
