MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X Review

MSI's new GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X uses a dual-fan cooler, same rockin' performance.

MSI has now launched another custom GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card with its new RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X -- coming in just under the larger RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO.


The big difference MSI has here with the new RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X is that it drops the word 'TRIO' from its name, which indicated a triple-fan cooler, instead replacing it with a smaller dual-fan cooler. We still have the same TU104 GPU and 8GB GDDR6 memory, but MSI is only charging $10 more than NVIDIA does for its RTX 2070 SUPER Founders Edition.

MSI is selling the new GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X for $510, which is a damn good deal considering you get all of the performance the RTX 2070 SUPER has to offer but with far improved thermals over the FE version of the card.

What makes the RTX 2070 SUPER so special is that instead of using the TU106, NVIDIA uses the TU104 which is the same GPU used in the higher-end RTX 2080. This means MSI (and other AIBs) can use existing RTX 2080 board designs, do some adjustments, and pump out the RTX 2070 SUPER quick.

Better yet, the RTX 2080 uses higher-end cooling which means the TU104-based RTX 2070 SUPER retains this higher-end cooling. Awesome.
