COLORFUL may not be a familiar brand to you but we have been working with them for many years now over here at Back2Gaming. For starters, COLORFUL is primarily a Chinese brand and focus on that market but recently, we’ve seen them venture out slowly push out their products for other regions. We’ve seen them mostly in other regions in Southeast Asia but I’m very happy to know they’ve managed to land in Philippines shores. That said, COLORFUL has been very elusive in terms of review allocations and even though we have a direct line, its just not that easy.
Today, we’re pleased to share with everyone our review of the COLORFUL iGame RTX 2060 SUPER Vulcan X OC graphics card. This marks our second iGame graphics cards following the iGame GTX 1080 Vulcan X OC we received from them a few years ago. Their iGame line is their premium series of products which includes graphics cards, motherboards and AIO PCs. The graphics cards themselves under the iGame line consists of other subseries including the Neptune, the Vulcan and the highly limited Kudan. While the Kudan itself only makes appearances in trade shows or esports events, the Vulcan and Neptune are more accessible but still not as globally available as we wish.
Going back to the sample we have, this is part of the Vulcan family of products. The Vulcan line from COLORFUL was one of the first to feature a LCD screen on the cooling shroud and while GALAX can contest that, this new update for the RTX release puts the competitors to shame. COLORFUL likes to see it itself compete with ASUS in terms of pricing and this card is no difference being their premium product. Is it worth the $499 asking price? Read on to find out more.
About the RTX 2060 SUPER Vulcan X OC
Much of the RTX 2060 SUPER’s advantage comes in the form of more CUDA cores on the TU106. The RTX 2060 SUPER has 2176 CUDA cores versus the 1920 of the original RTX 2060. The GPU also has a base clock of 1470Mhz from the RTX 2060’s 1365Mhz. Boost clocks are reduced a bit for the FE cards at 1650Mhz for the SUPER while the original RTX 2060 has 1680. The card also features GDDR6 memory, on a wider 256 bit bus giving the RTX 2060 SUPER faster memory bandwidth overall.
COLORFUL offers the RTX 2060 Super in multiple variants starting with their non-iGame models and tops out with the Vulcan models in both Vulcan X and Vulcan variants. The Vulcan series features a unique cooler featuring an LCD panel on the side. This has been the prime addition for these models along with a beefy cooler. The main difference between the Vulcan and the Vulcan X models has been speed which could been better binned chips. The Vulcan model has an 1815Mhz while the Vulcan X model goes up to 1875Mhz.
COLORFUL iGame cooler comprises of a large cooler feature vapor chamber contacts for the GPU plate and 7 heat pipes for dissipation. A temperature sensor module is located on the shroud for ambient temperature monitor. The most unique feature is the iGame LCD Monitor featuring an updated panel which shows more colors, features more fluid animations and as well as other information like card temperature, frequency, etc.
