NVIDIA really shocked everyone when they essentially refreshed their RTX line of graphics card this summer with “Super” variants. Competition from AMD in the GPU space was one large factor for this, but at the end of the day the people who benefit the most from this competition are us the consumers. The RTX 2070 Super is actually based on the same TU104 silicon as the RTX 2080 so you are going to get more performance at the same price. Today we are taking a look at MSI’s Gaming X version of the 2070 Super which has a slight factory overclock and MSI’s Twin Frozr 7 thermal design. Is this the RTX 2070 Super you need? Read on as we find out!
