ASUS has done a lot of work on this card and compared head to head with the other RTX 2070 SUPER in this test, do note that our testing sample is on Quiet mode. Head to head with a reference 5700XT, at 1080p its pretty much anyone’s ball game in our testing but cranking the resolution up to 1440p really shows whose the superior card. With performance so tight between the two RTX 2070 SUPER, we have to stress again the importance if and should we chose to go with a Performance-mode testing with ASUS. Still, given that a majority of users will almost never touch the BIOS toggle, we just have to reiterate that the card can go further. A few FPS may not be something special but still, every FPS counts. But in this case, its the possibility to go further if and should you want to overclock or that massive cooling giving us a decent sub-75*C peak thermals in-game.
Now barring the question if and should you go for the RTX 2070 SUPER versus the 5700 XT, the question we want to really answer is if one should go for an RTX 2070 SUPER versus an RTX 2080. With the RTX 2080 stocks dwindling, most users will most likely be presented with the RTX 2080 SUPER. At nearly 1000$ and significantly more expensive than the RTX 2070 SUPER, the ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER OC with its $90 becomes a little bit more sensible. Keeping in mind that you’ll be playing 1440p mostly or extremely high-framerate 1080p, if 240Hz 1440p or 4K 144hz is your thing, the higher cards definitely makes more sense.
Outside of performance, there’s no denying the ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER OC is a well-designed card. The cooler belies a great board design and a usable fan hub on the edge of the graphics card, this is quite a functional card. From our benchmarks, it’s obvious that most of these cards will perform at the same level, the quality of cooling and design will ultimately be your deciding factor and if you’re an ASUS fan looking to max out your budget and get the most solidly-built RTX 2070 SUPER in this shores, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2070 SUPER OC (O8G GAMING) is definitely the card to get.
The card retails in the Philippines with an MSRP of Php34,100.
