A solid card
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2019
This card replaced a GTX 1060 3GB, so this was a significant upgrade. My frame rates almost doubled. I did some testing and here is what I found in my air-conditioned room at 74F and case with 2 120mm case fans:
Idles at 40C at 88% fan speed
Full load at 77C at 100% fan speed
Frame capped at 60fps in FFXIV: 52C at 100% fan speed
UserBenchMark scored 77th percentile among RFX 2060 Supers
These are solid stats. The temps are well within their expected ranges, although this card does run a bit hotter and louder than my previous one. My GTX 1060 idled with its fan completely off, as does the 3-Fan version of this card, the GV-N206SGAMING OC-8GC. I left a detailed review on Amazon for the 3-Fan model and attached a photo of the two cards side by side.
Aesthetically, I didn't like the exposed copper heat pipes as they didn't look good in my all-black case. The RGB requires AORUS software to run, I think, whereas the 3-Fan Gigabyte RTX Super and my GTX 1060 did not. I also experienced some loud coil whine when I initially installed the card, but it went away after a few days.
