Default Performance of HF Up-Converter vs. Radio with HF

I am currently using the RTL-SDR v1.3 and the q-branch to receive HF. It works, but I feel an up-converter, or perhaps a radio that receives HF, would be better.

The only low-cost SDR I know of is the SDRplay RSP2 that will do HF natively, no up-converter needed.

Would the RSP2 out perform the RTL-SDR with an up-converter such as the Ham It Up or Airspy?
