EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC - Our Summary And Verdict
Performance Summary: Our testing didn’t reveal any surprises with the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC. Although it doesn’t look very much like NVIDIA’s own GeForce RTX 2060 physically, in practice, it is only this particular card’s GPU boost clock that differs from NVIDIA’s offering. As such, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC ended up being just a touch faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 across the board. Generally speaking, the card completes well with a GeForce GTX 1080 and a Radeon Vega 64, but clearly outpaces the GeForce GTX 1070 or 1060.
We dig the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC; its relatively wide cooler is kind of funky to see on such a petite PCB, but the overall design works very well. The EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC runs cool and quiet and the additional performance its higher boost clock should afford actually paid dividends in every single test we ran.
Although fully custom and clocked higher than NVIDIA’s card, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC’s MSRP is only $10 more – or $359. In addition, for a limited time, game codes for Anthem or Battlefield V will be included with GeForce RTX 2060 purchases, and EVGA is taking things even further, offering up copies of GRIP: Combat Racing Game, plus an EVGA Exclusive Skin for the game. In essence, an extra 10 bucks gets you a new game, higher performance than NVIDIA’s reference card, and a small form factor design. That’s nothing but good news in our book. If you’ve looking for a GPU in its price range, and the card’s design appeals to you, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC is definitely worth a look.
