Gaming GPUs Reviews

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super review – more memory, bigger chip, faster and also a little thirstier

The GeForce RTX 2060 got several scolds for the launch, mainly because of the rather meagre memory expansion of only 6 GB, which was actually not appropriate for the purchase price. Now everything is supposed to be super and you are aiming with an EIA of 419 euros incl. Vat. in the end, a very similar class of buyers. The question is still the question of how the street price will develop with the board partner models, because that was the big weakness after the launch at that time. Current GeForce RTX 2060 is now available from approx. 340 Euro street price.

Temperature gradients and boost clock in detail

The cooler is good (and quiet), so that the temperatures from 68 to 69 °C in open construction and 71 to 72 °C in the closed housing can be accepted well, because the ears do not fall off. The clock is still 1755 MHz even in the closed housing and after the final warm-up, which is good, but not world-shattering. But you can still overclock, then it goes with this card up to just over 2 GHz.

This is no different with the stress test, because the waste heat is largely the same as the power consumption.

And now the whole thing again in sober numbers in table form, and I compare the map to the larger GeForce RTX 2070 in fairness:

Board Analysis: Infrared Images

The following image gallery shows all infrared images for the gaming and the torture loop in the open structure and in the closed case. The differences are visible, but the cooler is absolutely confident in spite of everything, because it is not so much hotter in the end. What is really striking, however, is that there are no real hotspots, but the area is quite uniformly heated. This testifies to the already mentioned pavement with thermal pads and the connection of large areas to the radiator.

Temperatures rise by up to 3 degrees, but the fan doesn't turn faster.

The stress test shows the same picture, even if the values in the open structure are now just below the gaming values of the closed housing.

Here, in the closed structure, another 2 to 3 degrees are added. Nothing to really think about.
