Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro review

Available pre-top graphics with “ultras” in all modern games
We recently tested the top-end Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Ti video card. It proved to be great in games, although the high price can scare off many potential buyers. This option is an excellent replacement with good performance and support for ray tracing. Will Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro be able to provide the maximum fps on “ultras” for its 30 thousand rubles? Let’s find out.

Appearance and packaging
In the box with the video card, you can find only two things: an instruction book and a driver disk. The device itself lies under a separate layer of foam, in an antistatic bag. Its design is quite pleasant: the casing is made of black plastic of various textures (somewhere matte, somewhere glossy). The fan blades are transparent. Around the GEFORCE RTX inscription on top there is a small rim of illumination, it is necessary only for beauty.

The backplate covers the card at the back, which protects the card from mechanical damage and increases the rigidity of the structure. For additional power, an 8-pin connector is used, which is located on the top edge.

Specifications
Talking about the performance of the video card, it is necessary to mention its main characteristics. Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro is based on the TU106-410A-A1 GPU, manufactured using a 12nm process technology and consisting of 10.8 billion transistors. It has 2176 CUDA cores and a base frequency of 1470 MHz (1710 MHz with acceleration). The memory capacity is 8 GB of GDDR 6 type (256-Bit bus capacity). The power consumption of the card is 175 watts, so the power supply must be at least 550 watts — at least, so the instructions say.

Technological breakthrough
The map is based on the Turing architecture and the RTX platform. This means that there is support for artificial intelligence technology and real-time ray tracing. Thanks to them, the graphics in modern games look even more realistic: lighting, reflections and shadows are noticeably improved. Like the” older ” RTX 2080 Ti, our test GPU is equipped with a hardware encoder for simultaneous gaming and streaming in high quality. Vidyukha is optimized for OBS-fans of live broadcasts will appreciate it.

Naturally, manufacturers have not forgotten about the NVIDIA G-Sync technology — it eliminates image gaps on compatible monitors, so that the gameplay is as smooth and responsive as possible.

Putting “Ultra” in games
Characteristics are important, but they don’t reflect the whole point of things. Therefore, it is much more interesting to check how the video card shows itself in games. For the tests, we used a mid-budget stand with an Intel Core i7-8700K (4800 MHz) processor and 16 GB of ddr4 RAM. That’s what we did.

The map showed the best results in restarting DOOM. There, the average number of fps exceeded 220 on ultra-settings and in Full HD. At a resolution of 2560 x 1440, the result was reduced to 158 frames per second — which is also a good indicator. The average frequency in the already legendary GTA 5 was 88 fps in Full HD and 74 fps in QHD. Similar results and in the Shadow of the Tomb Raider — 73 and 51 fps, respectively. In the new Metro Exodus, where RTX support is implemented, our video card produces 46 frames in 1920×1080 mode. In QHD resolution, the average is reduced to 36 frames — not too much, but it is quite comfortable to play.
