    Ray tracing seems untouched by overclocking, it is within error margin or load out differences.

    I kinda wonder why rtx series deny the same or identical boost of non ray tracing benchmarks.

    Even HH didnt get over the fact that 2060 has only 6GB. :D

    Mindf**ck really, I mean even the PCB showed me the two lacking memory ICs :D

    Maybe the dedicated RT cores can not be overclocked for safety issues.

    Man, I didn't pay much attention to RTX2060 release, but this card seems unbeatable.
    For $349 MSRP (might not be found at stores) and it knocking on RTX2070 doors. Is it GTX970 all over again?

    You think custom cards will also sell that 349$ msrp? Even HH in his review said if Palit keep the asking price it might be a good pick.

    Something like Gaming X, Aorus Extreme or Asus Strix will be close to 400$.

    The cheapest gtx 1060 6gbs in Europe are roughly ~$300 still, so I see no way in hell you can find any of those below $400.

    When you guys do your idle temps, are those at 100% fan speed? Don't most modern GPUs have 0% fan speed at idle and slowly rise to their fan turn off speed, (usually around 50-60c). I know my 2070 for example will idle around 50-60c before turning its fan on but will idle at like 30c at 100% fan speed.

    wow really? My 1070 idle at around 35 with the fans turned off.

    Maybe it's some kind of lack of airflow in my case, had the same thing happen to my RX 470 as well. Idle was always around 50c with fans off.

    The Palit fans stay in slow RPM mode, so they will keep spinning inaudibly. Next to that even with Zero-RPM mode you should not pass 40 Degrees C, if you do .. I'd advise you to improve the airflow inside your chassis.

    It depends what you are looking for. It gets beat by the 1080 and/or Vega 64 at 2k in pretty much all the tests. If you are looking for 1080p60 then yeah but to be honest a 1060 will give you good results at this resolution. If you are looking for high fps or high resolution it's not all that great. I sure gonna pass not a big enough upgrade over my 1070 to be worth the hassle (and it's not a lot cheaper than the 430$ USD i paid for my 1070). The only RTX card "worth" the upgrade if you already own a 1070 or 1080 and are looking to play at high resolution and/or fps are the 2080s (worth being questionable here considering the asked price for the 2080).

    a little too noisy for me

    JetStream are less noisy, aren't they?

    How on Earth is that card matching an RTX 2070?

    Yeah, I noticed that too, and I'd like to know the reason why. Ray tracing performance is one area where these cards would really benefit from an overclock of the ray tracing portion of the card. Maybe the ray tracing part of the GPU operates at different clock speeds, similar to how the old old generations (e.g. 8600 GT) of NVidia cards functioned, where there was a seperate core clock, and shader clock, and memory clock - so when you overclocked you could overclock each of them individually. I remember I got best results from overclocking each of those 3 clocks to the max that they would each achieve individually. Maybe in the future overclocking programs will include seperate sliders for overclocking of the RT part of the card. These are just ideas, I don't know if that's how it could even operate, but would be good to get some answers on these questions we have.

    6GB is too small, needs a 8GB option. call it 2060Ti or something.

    With SLI/MGPU getting rarer, could this be an upgrade for myself?

    I play zero new games due to not liking to compromise with visuals, so i don't know how rare it is nowadays, but i don't see many people with SLI/CF anymore.

    EDIT: Just had a better look at the results, even with 100% scaling this card could be better than 970x2.
