Have the dual from yesterday, should I get this instead?

The Strix is the top of the line from Asus but its up to you. Usually has more OC potential.

Is £30 difference but is there actually much change apart from a fan?
Really close call between this and RX 5700.

This is a fantastic deal though for what is usually a top end card inc free games.

Hot!

Performance between them will not be by more than 1-2fps and 2-5 degrees Celsius, great price for a strix card but up to you to justify the extra money.
Ordered yesterday. Great deal with the tradeup, if you have a card that qualifies. Worth noting this is a pre-order. No stock until end of the month.

Think you got a great deal yesterday, that deal now pulled as well so may have been a pricing error.
Wow if I trade in my 1080 I get £210 cashback, not sure if that is a wise move though!
This is only worth it if you're planning on OC'ing

Why would you think that, have you owned a strix?

I’m only going by what I’ve used which is MSI Premium line but possible FPS difference is a big margin from the standard cards. I’ve heard strix cards are generally better than MSI so 1-2fps better sounds ridiculous. I’d imagine you should be able to get 10-12fps maybe even higher with this having 3 fans. As long as your system temps are good. Depends what res you’ll be playing at too

Worth bearing in mind also that even If you don't have an old card to trade, you can still buy a cheap gt 730 from Ebay for 20 quid and trade it in for 75 quid, making this card only about £310.

The dual card wasn't on the trade program so the strix cards are a better deal.
Also, I would pay the extra £10 for the one that as the biggest overclock. Got about 140mhz more on the core.

Yes, I've tested several different GPUs including a Strix model though that doesn't really mean much since it wasn't a 2060S.

More to the point, take a look at these performance numbers: guru3d.com/art…tml

BFV 1080p38032815-tZKb4.jpg
The biggest difference possible is the founders edition Nvidia model since that ships with basic stock clock speeds 1650Mhz boost vs Strix 1830Mhz boost.

Even then, you can see its only +4fps, this margin will be further reduced when comparing Dual vs Strix since the Dual also ships with a higher than stock clock speed.

You can see even more comparisons with more games/resolution in the link above, in price to performance, Strix cards are never worth it, but they are pretty cool nonetheless and people buy them for many reasons.

The only place where you can expect a +10 FPS bump is upgrading to the next model up, probably a 2070S.

Well, yes. You have to send them your receipt and the card you are trading in after you've got the new card.

The dual card isn't on the program at the moment, but it might get added. However if it follows the 2060 cards, the dual card may end up in the "good" category, where as the rog 2060 and 2060s cards are in the "better" category. You get 30 quid more therefore.

This means you get the strix card instead of the dual for only a small amount more.

For the pcie power connectors, I see strix needs 1x8pin 1x 6pin and for the dual is 1x8pin
Does it mean that the strix would need 2 power connectors where the dual is only one?
There is Strix, Strix ADVANCED, and Strix OC. This is basic model, while bit better ADVANCED version is same price, and OC version with massive out of the box OC is only 10 quid more. And actualy all description is for basic version, but link takes You to ADVANCED. Silly posting here really.

Behave. You are best measuring it in percentage terms rather than frame terms and realistically a highly clocked card could be 10-15 percent faster than a stock card. Depending greatly on the models in question.

In this case you likely won't see more than 10 percent between the best RTX2060 Super and the worst.

60FPS on a stock card might equate to 66 on an OC for example. You usually can't even squeeze up to the model above on performance, whereas a long time ago that was sometimes possible.

Could you give an example of any reasonable OC that will provide 10-15%? You mention 60fps but these cards usually run in much higher frame rates at anything less than 4k.

10-15% is too optimistic based on my experience and every review I've watched.

Haha yes but that’s running at stock. The whole point in the premium lines is that they generally use the better Samsung mem chips and better binned stock chips. So that’s before heavy overclocking or repasting or applying liquid metal. If you’re not overclocking these cards properly then they’re not designed for your usage in the first place. These are overclocking enthusiast cards. Wish people would understand that.

My MSI GTX1060 gaming x gives me about an extra 20fps as I’ve done all the above to it. It now runs stable at 2126mhz core and almost 11000mem clock.

According to internet experts it’s a card that cannot reach above 1080p 60fps yet I’m running it at 1440p 70fps average.

The percentages of 10-15 were an example not a specific to this precise model. I felt I made that very clear when I said 'depending greatly on the models in question.'

I then followed that with a middle paragraph which must have escaped you- need I quote it again?

'In this case you likely won't see more than 10 percent between the best RTX2060 Super and the worst.'

Also 'reasonable OC' is not what I stated. I stated 'highly clocked'.

Chill out a bit, no need to pick apart words. I only asked as I'd never seen any non-exotic oc produce 10-15% gains, which is why I asked which gpu/test you were referring to.

Well then, how about this set of 1660s for your perusal.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

And here you go, just to make sure you know it's not 'exotic' a single fan design.

techpowerup.com/rev…tml

15.3% on that one.

This of course relies on your use of the following phrase.

"I'd never seen any non exotic oc produce 10-15% gains"

10-15% is fairly common, in general. For the Super 2060, I've seen 5-10% with most clocking in around 5-8%.
