NVIDIA's latest Turing GPU release was an interesting one, with the new GeForce RTX 2060 surprising reviewers and gamers alike with a not-so-bad price, impressive performance, and plenty of custom cards available on day one. One of those is MSI's new GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING Z which we have here to review today.
This means we're talking about the TU106 GPU, a 12nm chip based on NVIDIA's new Turing GPU architecture that features 1920 CUDA cores, 48 ROPs, and is joined by 6GB of super-fast GDDR6 memory that helps the RTX 2060 punch well above its weight thanks to the increased memory bandwidth.
MSI's new GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING Z can be found for around $380-$390, a $30-$40 or so premium over NVIDIA's own GeForce RTX 2060. MSI is overclocking the RTX 2060 GAMING Z out of the box by 30MHz on the base GPU clock, while boost GPU clocks rise by a larger 150MHz at a total of 1830MHz. The boost GPU clock of 1830MHz is the highest of the custom GeForce RTX 2060 cards so far, I'll be squeezing more out of the card overclocking it, don't you worry about that.
The gaming performance at 1080p and 1440p offers a huge opportunity for monitor owners at those resolutions with high refresh rates, especially in games like Overwatch and PUBG.
