    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    Why did you only do RTX perf testing on one GPU but neither of the two since?

    Isn't this meant to be a mid-range GPU? £370 is far too much for mid-range.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    Of course the Vega64 is faster, that was supposed to compete with the 1080 and costs more (albeit not much more if you look at the cheaper Vega's vs the more expensive 2060's but still) whereas the 2060 is more in line with a 1070.

    The 2060 reviews will probably need re-visiting if RTX features take a better hold in the future, as that could change the 2060's value by quite a bit going forward.

    Typo in graph on 4K results for Middle Earth, label says EVGA 1070 not Vega 64?

    Too rich for my veins. Needs to lose £70 to be even remotely considered, and even that would be pushing it!

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    It would be nice to see at least one token benchmark of the two cards as a compute engine. Vega 64 would probably wallop RTX 2060 at that. Cybercurrency mining with a GPU is passé but there are other uses.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    Why the absence of a detailed comparison to other cards in the bracket and just comparing to one Vega card? Is it because the temps and noise are worse compared to other RTX2060 cards tested recently? See https://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/126425-evga-geforce-rtx-2060-xc-ultra/?page=12.
    The noise is actually louder than Gigabyte's RTX2080 Gaming OC for example which you wouldn't expect. It is louder than NVidia's own RTX 2060 founders edition, which you wouldn't expect. And the Asus ROG version is better if noise and power are your requirement, and for £50 less.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    1070/ ti?
    580/90?

    I thought you guys usually benched against a swathe of other cards.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro

    Given it's the same GPU chip as the 2070 and 2080 I was actually quite surprised to see it had different output connectors. I assumed they would just use a 2070 board, slap the 2060 silicon on it and miss off the two disabled memory chips. Oh, and tweak the BIOS, bit of work needed there.
