NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 & 2070 SUPER Review

Closer Look

The physical dimensions and design for the Founders Edition version of RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER do not differ from their original parts, however there is one notable distinction - shiny, reflective surface around the twin-fan design. NVIDIA's designs through the generations have progressively improved both in the physical and thermal sense. This design looks exquisite and will look very stylish as part of any system configuration.

We're pleased to see that NVIDIA has given both cards a protective backplate, not only does this add to the aesthetics but, more importantly it protects the PCB from flexing or getting scratched.

On the Rear IO panel of each SUPER card they are almost identical in regards to which ports are offered up except the 2060 SUPER provides legacy support for DVI, while 2070 SUPER adds in a DP 1.4 port. Both cards have HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.4 ports and a USB-C for newer generation VR headsets.

For power delivery the 2060 SUPER relies on a single 8-pin connection, while 2070 SUPER requires 8+6-pin from the PSU. NVIDIA are recommending 550W for the 2060 SUPER and 650W for the 2070 SUPER.
