The GeForce RTX 2060 from Nvidia has a GPU Boost rating of 1,680 MHz and a base clock rate of 1,365 MHz. While the GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro 6G from Gigabyte that we reviewed has a 1,830 MHz GPU Boost clock and a similar base frequency.
The Gaming OC Pro 6G costs $390 in the United States, so the 9% increase doesn’t exactly justify an 11% price hike. A semi-passive fan mode, RGB lighting, and lower operating temperatures, however, might just make up the difference.
Is the RTX 2060 from Gigabyte good?
While keeping things cool, the three-fan Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC 8GB offers faster clock speeds than some rivals. With the improved performance comes some additional fan noise.
However, this card is a winner and is only slightly more expensive than cards that don’t perform as well.
The RTX 2060 is an appealing choice if you’re looking for a way to take advantage of Nvidia’s ray-tracing capable GPUs because it’s still one of the best graphics cards you can buy right now.
