Conclusion and Verdict
Well we have come to the end and I can truly say I was impressed with how this card performed. Just take a look at those Overclock speeds I pushed out of this thing (2055MHz) INSANE! The shroud is plastic and I have heard that some people don’t like the feel or look of it but come on you shouldn’t be constant touching or feeling your video card anyway!
I am happy the back plate has a metal cover (this is where the real structural component comes into play, keeps the sag to a minimum). I would have liked to have more RGB options but that’s just me I like the lights! The cooler performed great, the card never reached full fan speeds so this thing operated pretty quite and I use an open test bench so I notice all fan noises. The performance is pretty much on par with other 2060’s out there but the amount in which I was able to increase the MHz was pretty insane. This card can compete with a 1080 no problem! Very nice job Gigabyte!
You can find a very similar version called Gigabyte RTX 2060 Gaming OC. This is minus the PRO. The only difference in these two cards are the cooling components. The PRO version (the one we tested) has 4 instead of only 2 direct touch Heat Pipes.
The Gigabyte RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro Gaming 6GB can be found on Newegg as well as various other retailers for around $389.99 USD.
