MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 6G OC Graphics Card Review

Verdict and Conclusion

Well what can I say? I’m seriously impressed by the overall performance of the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 6G OC Graphics Card. It produced very good scores in all of our benchmark tests, including UL’s 3DMark Port Royal which is designed for graphics card with ray-tracing capabilities. 

Although the RTX 2060 is Nvidia’s entry-point to their RTX 20 series of graphics cards, it does pack hell of a punch in terms of performance. It easily beats both the GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and believe it or not, falls just behind the GTX 1080!

Performance aside, the RTX series offer some attractive selling points which include the use of GDDR6 ram, Turing architecture, and of course the the ray-tracing capabilities, which the RTX 2060 handles adequately at 1920×1080. 

 

 

Since this card already come overclocked with a core clock at 1710 MHz (default is 1365 MHz), I didn’t see the need to overclock it further. However, if you want to push it to the max, you can use MSI’s Afterburner software … but please be very careful. Any overclocking is done at your own risk.

You can buy the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 6G OC Graphics Card from various online retailers for around USD $350-360 from Aamzon – https://amzn.to/2Cm4s5x. At this price, it falls within my expectations and does offer great value for money when it comes to price/performance…. especially when it’s $200 cheaper than its bigger sibling, the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 6G OC.

 

Pros:

  • Excellent performance for the price.
  • Latest Turing architecture
  • Boost clock of 1710 MHz (default is 1365 MHz)
  • Support DirectX Raytracing (DXR) 
  • 6GB GDDR6 memory

Cons:

  • Plastic backplate
  • No NVLink connectors = No support for SLI 

 

Final Thoughts:

If you want the latest Nvidia graphics card that offers ray-tracing capabilities, GDDR6 video ram with an overclocked GPU, then the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 6G OC is the card you want. Great performance, great price and great value for money … It’s the only time you’ll ever see me say “great” 3 times in a sentence!
