EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER SC ULTRA GAMING Video Card Review

This has been an exciting year for the world of PC Gaming, for gamers and enthusiasts alike. For those who held out from buying an NVIDIA RTX graphics adapter last year, they received a treat this year with the release of a SUPER refresh from NVIDIA. In the RTX family, the 2060, 2070 and 2080 cards were given the SUPER treatment. Looking to the future, graphics are moving towards the path of ray tracing. From my experience, ray tracing is pretty impressive. That being said, the amount of games that utilize it are somewhat limited. However, that is sure to change as many titles coming out soon will have support for the technology, further immersing us into our games.

EVGA has been kind enough to send over to us one of their RTX SUPER cards, more specifically, the RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra 8GB. So if you are in the market now or soon, take a journey with us as we take this graphics card for a spin and see how it performs.

Here’s a quick comparison between the latest GeForce RTX 20xx Super and 16xx series graphics cards (default clock speeds)…
