ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 Dual EVO OC 6GB review

Design

The Asus Dual RTX 2060 Super O8G-EVO features a chunky aluminium backplate designed to help stop the primary circuit board, trace pathways and other precious components from flexing and breaking. It is big  and measures 267 x 118 x 58mm, and

Ports

In terms of connections, there are two HDMI 2.0b ports and two DisplayPort 1.4s on here, along with a single DVI-D port. There’s one 8-pin PCIe connection for your power needs – make sure you’ve got the right cable to hand before shelling out for this.  

Frame rates

The 63fps average when playing The Division 2 in Quad HD is superb, and a big contrast to the RTX 2060 which only managed 53fps. It’s only a 10fps difference, but by exceeding the 60fps mark hints the Super variant is more future-proofed for upcoming GPU-intensive games, such as Cyberpunk 2077. 

The most impressive aspect of these results is how significantly they’ve improved since the standard RTX 2060, with a 16fps increase at a Quad HD resolution. The RTX 2060 Super saw an average 33fps score when running games in 4K. This suggests this Super card is not capable of comfortably running games in Ultra HD when playing AAA games, which comes as no surprise. 

Temperature

The Dual GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER EVO leverages a 2.7-slot design to gain more heatsink surface area.  An advanced onboard controller brings fans to a standstill when the GPU core temperature is below 55 Celsius, letting you enjoy light gaming in relative silence. As temps rise past the threshold, the fans automatically start up again.

Power consumption

The RTX Super at least owns the bragging rights for power consumption, as it saw a peak figure of 299.1 watts while running the Fire Strike Ultra benchmark, which undercuts the RX 5700 result of 327.6 watts. 

Overclocked

The new GeForce RTX SUPER™ Series has even more cores and higher clocks, bringing you performance that’s up to 25% faster than the original RTX 20 Series and 6X faster than the previous-generation 10 Series GPUs. It’s time to gear up and get super powers. At this point, we are able to get another full gigahertz out of the Dual 2060 Super before we run into artifacting, so we settle on 16,500 MHz as our final speed, quite the jump over the stock 14,000 MHz.

At $499, it’s still a significant sum by any means—we’re talking next-gen console equivalent pricing here—but it’s hardly an exorbitant sum when compared to PC gaming’s top graphics silicon today. In return, you’re gifted a 4K-capable graphics card that doesn’t require too much fiddling to reach playable, if not high, framerates. And it’ll absolutely smash it at 1440p, no question about that.

Perhaps the only high-end Ampere that’s anything close to reasonably affordable, the RTX 3070 is also impressive for its ability to match the top-string Turing graphics card, the RTX 2080 Ti, for less than half of its price tag.

DLSS is a neat trick for improving performance, with only a nominal loss in clarity, and other features such as Broadcast and Reflex go a long way to sweetening the deal.

Its gaming performance credentials are undoubtedly impressive, but what makes the RTX 3070 our pick for the sensible PC gaming connoisseur is the entire Nvidia ecosystem underlying the RTX stack today.
