MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC Graphics Card Review

A Closer look at the MSI RTX 2060 Ventus 6g OC »

With the RTX line up complete (for now), I finally had the opportunity to look at the 2060 version specifically, the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC . The GeForce RTX 2060 is the lowest model number in the RTX line up. It features 6 GB of DDR6 memory vs 8 GB on the 2080 (non-TI) and 2070, running at 14Gbps on a 192-bit interface. The RTX 2060 features 1920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor cores and 30 RTX cores. The MSI card takes the 2060 a bit further with a factory overclock as compared to the RTX 2060 Founder’s Edition. MSI’s updated cooler design features the TORX 2.0 fans. The heatsink itself features 4 6mm heatpipes that come in direct contact with the GPU die. The RTX 2060 Ventus also lacks RGB functionality for those that are a little tired of the RGB scene, as a matter of fact, it doesn’t have any LED lighting.

The packaging on the RTX 2060 Ventus is pretty simple. The box uses Nvidia’s black/green color scheme. On the front of the box, the product name is in large windswept letters indicating speed. Behind that is a simple line art drawing of a dual fan cooler. In the lower left corner, there is the OC edition sticker. There is a non-overclocked version of this GPU as well. On the back, the box details out some of the most important feature of this GPU such as it uses the TORX 2.0 fans, includes a back plate, and the heatsink details.

The package comes in two parts a thin outer shell with the graphics and information and a thicker inner shell. The inner shell is mostly a rigid foam with the GPU inside a center cavity.  MSI also included an envelope that includes documentation such as warranty info and a quick set up guide.  The RTX 2060 Ventus is set inside the center cavity and is wrapped in a standard anti-static bag.
