GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC 8G Review

On our test bench today we have the RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC from GIGABYTE. The “Super” line of GPUs was introduced by Nvidia in late June of this year which, coincidently coincided with AMD’s launch of their new Navi-based RX 5700 line of video cards. Speculation at the time was that this move was intended to counter AMD’s perceived price/performance staging of their soon to be launched RX GPUs. AMD’s performance levels were mostly speculation at the time but rumored to be at or near the RTX 2070 levels with a similar price point. Whether or not these rumors were true the RTX Super graphics cards were released intending to slide in between their base model (RTX 2070) and the next tier (RTX 2080). These cards were sporting an increased CUDA core count much like the “Ti” versions of the past but these new Super cards also have increased RT and Tensor core counts. Read More

AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme Video Card Review

Under the microscope today is the AORUS RTX 2080 Xtreme. It not only sports a custom PCB and beefy power delivery but also includes one of the coolest RGB LED implementations we’ve seen. The Xtreme uses the Windforce 3 Stack cooling including three fans with each fan integrating a single RGB LED on one fan blade. This location for the LED with the fan spinning makes it look like a continuous circle of light around each of the fans and is highly customizable. We’ll dig down and see how it performs as well as look at the lighting and its seemingly endless options for tweaking. Read More

When NVIDIA unleashed the new Turing based video cards a few weeks ago, they released the flagship RTX 2080 Ti and its little brother the RTX 2080.

The 2070 was released as expected on October 17th and we recently received ours a short time ago from GIGABYTE in their RTX 2070 Gaming OC 8G. Read More

Today we are looking at our first partner card in the MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio. The Gaming X Trio hails from MSI’s premium line of cards (Gaming) and with it includes a slight overclock out of the box.
