The mid-range graphics card market is full of cards now, from both AMD and NVIDIA. We recently took a look at Sapphire’s Pulse RX 5700, which matches up well against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 Super cards. Today we are actually taking a look at our first GeForce RTX 2060 Super, which comes from Gigabyte. It is their RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC 8G, which as you can guess is a factory-overclocked card. Gigabyte has outfitted this card with their triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution, a pretty hefty overclock up to 1815 MHz (vs 1650 MHz reference), a full-cover metal backplate, and even RGB lighting. This card is only $20 more than reference cards so with the nice overclock and better cooling solution it should easily be worth the extra money. Read on as we find out!

Gigabyte has not changed the look of their packaging all that much since the original RTX launch. On the front we have the Gigabyte “Eye” and it lets us know we have the RTX 2060 Super. In the bottom left there are emblems letting us know some of the features like RGB Fusion 2.0, WindForce cooling, and that this is an OC Edition card.
Flipping over to the back we have a run-down of those features, plus an overview of the display outputs on the card, which is always good to know.
Opening the box up and getting everything out we have the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC 8G Graphics Card itself, a driver and software CD, and a small quick start guide.
