MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC Graphics Card Review

With the GeForce RTX 2060 MSI is initially launching with two models, the RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC and RTX 2060 Gaming Z 6G. Surprisingly both of these cards come with factory overclocks. Today we are going to be taking a look at the RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC, which is only $10 more than NVIDIA’s MSRP on the RTX 2060 of $349. With that you are getting a factory overclock up to 1710 MHz (compared to 1680 MHz), a nice dual-fan cooling solution, and a full-cover backplate. That seems like quite a lot for only a $10 premium, let’s see if this is the RTX 2060 card to get.

Special thanks to MSI for providing us with the GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC Graphics Card to review.
