Man, its been a crazy couple of weeks. Nvidia launched their RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER a week and a half ago. I had the chance to check them out and was impressed with the jump in performance they were both offering over the previous models. But then this past weekend AMD brought out their RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT which stepped things up even more. So today I’ve got our first RTX 2060 SUPER aftermarket card in, the MSI RTX 2060 SUPER Gaming X and today I’m going to see how MSI’s Gaming X improves on Nvidia’s design as well as checking out how an overclocked 2060 SUPER compares with the new AMD cards. Let’s dive in!

So for clock speeds the Gaming X does come with an overclock over the RTX 2060 SUPER FE that I took a look at previously. It has a boost clock of 1695 MHz where the Founders Edition had a boost clock of 1650 Mhz. This isn’t a huge overclock, but a nice bump over stock. Just to confirm things I took a look at the Gaming X with GPUz and I have that screenshot below. I just wanted to confirm that the card out of the box matches the listed specs. This also documents the BIOS version and what driver I tested with which btw was the launch driver where the Founders Edition cards were on the press pre-launch driver.
