In July this year Nvidia released a bit of a refresh on there RTX range of cards and we had the opportunity to test drive MSI version of it, the MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X.

So what is the difference between the normal RTX 2060 and the RTX 2060 Super? Well firstly you have more shader cores(1920 on the normal and 2176 on the Super), more GDDR6 memory and the memory bus on the card is faster. This is but the tip of the Iceberg on some of the changes between the two.

The MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X features MSI’s tried and trusted Torx 3.0 fans and Zero Frozr tech(the fans only kicks in if the card reaches over 60 degrees), a splash of RGB lighting(which I actually love) and it also has a brushed aluminum/steel backplate(to keep your card nice and straight). So is it worth the money, I would say yes but only if you upgrading from the lower tier cards(900 series, 1600 series and 1000 series). There is a big jump in numbers compared to the older gen cards, I got a nice 149 FPS in Strange Brigade and a nice solid 102 FPS in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided(these games was all played at FHD). I suspect that at 1440p the FPS will drop by about 5-10% in performance but I think this is still satisfactory figures. The card was also not very loud under load when playing these games.

Overall I am really pleased with MSI’s RTX 2060 Super Gaming X, it has real performance at 1080p and I suspect at 1440p, it is a solid card that will work with any game you throw at it(even RT titles like Battlefield V). I looks fantastic and I love the minimalist RGB that is on the car. I would recommend this to any gamer that is looking to get a good RTX card and good overall 1080/1440p performer. This is your local mad scientist signing out….time to upgrade, would it be my PC or my Lightsaber??? Choices Choices Choices
