    Nice card, chips away heavily at the value proposition of a 2070, might as well save money with a 2060 or get more cash and leapfrog the 2070 for a 2080.

    But still, none of that matters because the headline features of this card aren't tested. No BF:5 or FFXV for Ray Tracing or DLSS tests.

    While I agree £460 for a XX60 card is questionnable, they priced it where they can, no competetion from AMD.

    I must be looking at a different review then, the 2060 shown in the review is pretty much on par with the cheaper Vega 64 cards (yes that's right, the Vega 64 is cheaper than this card). Ignoring that part completely though for a second, this card quite simply doesn't justify the 27% price increase over the Founders Edition 2060, especially when you can get the 2070 for a nominal bump in price.

    What are Asus thinking?

    £450 for an RTX 2060 that also requires an 8pin + 6pin power input. Wow.

    Silly money, for a silly card. It'll be a Navi, or Nvidia GTX1160 for me when one of them arrives.

    The overpriced graphics card of the year award goes to.... ASUS! Really surprised they have priced it so much higher than the founders edition ones (£125 more!!), but such a small performance bump. Hopefully other 2060 releases will be alot more sensible in price.

    Asus is getting insane with this overpricing crap. I am now looking into other mobo makers to get away from Asus. The current favourites are MSi or ASRock. These prices are just an FY to the customer. I mean the GPU only has 6GB of vram ffs.

    According to NVIDIA 2060 will outplay 1070 and almost faster like GTX 1080. but of course price matters in most of us.

    Re: Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2060 OC

    Normally its the FE thats expensive but this is too much, better buying a 2070 instead of this price.

    If this went for the normal 2060 price or slightly over, it would be a great value proposition. As is, not so much.

    Re: Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2060 OC

    ROG Strix cards are always over priced, I was planning on going for a full aura sync build but when I realised an ASUS Strix card is usually only around £100 cheaper than getting the next tier up of GPU (and can sometimes even cost the same!) I decided to leave it be, they have lovely designs but it makes no sense unless you are rich, going for the highest tier hardware available and don't mind paying over the odds to have it all match in your build.

    Re: Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2060 OC

    An RTX 2060 at £329 is very tempting but for £450 not really lol. I've seen 2070s go for that price.
