We review the new ASUS RTX 2060 STRIX OC edition. This premium product has already been tweaked the cards towards an 1830 MHz Boost frequency for you, making this a very rather fast offer in the RTX lineup, that looks terrific and familiar as well.
The past few months RTX became a tough sell and NVIDIAs popularity declined in a negative spiral. Whenever that happens, as a company you need to set things right. The first attempt at that will be what we review today, a product that most people can afford, the GeForce RTX 2060. The xx60 range typically is mainstream slash mid-range, however, at 349 USD (and really that’s where it’ll start) we do wonder how the general public will feel about that price. The last-gen GTX 1060 was launched at 299 USD. Before that era mainstream was in a 199 USD range. So in just a few years, prices have risen 75%, one year away of getting doubled if this trend continues. Admittedly, technology evolves, the fabrication nodes are more expensive, the anything RTX also uses more expensive GDDR6 memory. Everything factors in. Let’s hope it’s enough, as we really do like the RTX 2060 and it is in a price range that most people can afford. The big question that remains, is this product enough?
