Late in 2019 or earlier this year. I wanted to explore some of the later-released RTX 2060 options in the market. Sadly, only EVGA and GALAX were the only ones pumping post-RTX SUPER models. That said, NVIDIA and the market’s attention has definitely moved on but the RTX 2060 managed to linger a little long versus the other models displaced by SUPER cards. This was planned after all but still, as the RTX 2060 SUPER did not replace the RTX 2060 but rather pushed it down a price notch, with a $50 reduction. The card remained the same and ultimately still the same card unless OC’d to its limits. That being said, we have already done a review for the GALAX RTX 2060 EXOC last year but since we’ve lost our older database, I’ve decided to went ahead and provide a supplementary review as part of this review series for GALAX RTX 20 series cards. You can see the other reviews here:
As with many GALAX products, this product also features 1-Click OC compatibility through their Xtreme Tuner software. Before that though, out of the box the GALAX RTX 2060 EX is clocked in at 1710Mhz boost and the 1-Click OC boost is rated at 1725Mhz. Not too far from the 1680Mhz reference but user can manually boost this up thru manual OC. Cooling the EX is the same pair of 90mm fans. Of course the biggest difference here is color. GALAX offers the RTX 2060 EX in a black, released last year, and a newer white version.
This card is predominantly a cosmetic palette swap so expect the same performance from both black or white models.
