This is my first post, figured I'd share this purchase in the case anyone else is in the market for a good UHD or QHD card at a sub $700 price point. I know that there is a Inno3D GeForce RTX2070 SUPER Twin X2 OC deal for $655.20, however, from my research this model is very most likely worth the additional $24.
This card runs very cool, overclocks easily to gain another 8% performance, has great warranty, and is super quiet.
it outpaced the RTX 2070 FE thanks to its increased core count and elevated boost clocks. This lead in performance expands even more once the Gaming OC is overclocked. Overclocking was quite easy, adding 115 MHz to the core and an additional 75 MHz to the memory moving it from 1750 MHz to 1825 MHz GDDR6. The resulting boost speed of 2160 MHZ pushed the performance very close to that of a stock RTX 2080 FE which is very impressive.
I was considering a 2080 variation, but I can't justify it for 1440 when this is half the price and will be more than up to the task. The real-world testing seems to indicate roughly 6-15 frames difference in frames between many 2080 variations and this card at 1440, so potentially not worth another $700. This seems to be one of if not the all-time low price for this particular card also. I found these reviews among others very informative:
This video was well worth the watch too:
Edit: As some comments have correctly stated, these reviews are for the Gaming OC 3X variation. From what I can tell, and others have reported, the only difference is that Gaming OC has a thicker heatsink (2.25 slot rather than 2 slot), and RBG's. The WindForce has ZERO RGB's, I was a fan of this because I have a stealth build.
