Note: This review was originally published September 8th, 2020 prior to the RTX 30 release. It has since been updated with our charts including the RTX 3080. GALAX cards are grouped and were taken prior to the new chart format but the benchmark is still the same as the new format.
GALAX is one of those companies that outside of their high-end HOF line, still can’t nail down a series that will stick and so they bring out the design shotgun and pump out a wide range of products. This week, we’ll take a look at a couple of RTX 20 series cards from GALAX from their RTX 2070 SUPER, 2060 SUPER and 2060 lineup for review. As the RTX 20 series cards are at their last hurrah, vendors are still being creative with their marketing to push out stocks to gamers that are not intending to jump into the latest generation cards.
That said, in this series of review we’ll take a look at four GALAX cards:
This review covers the entry-level option from GALAX in their RTX 2060 SUPER line-up, the RTX 2060 SUPER 1-Click OC. Effectively a reference card with a slight OC bump, this card serves as their bargain-basement option (depends on your market region) but is effectively target the market space that Palit and Zotac filled in years past but with both players focusing on their signature gaming lineup, their value segment has been left with a chance where GALAX is happy to fill-in.
About the GALAX RTX 2060 SUPER 1-Click OC
The RTX 2060 SUPER displaced the RTX 2060 when it released and offered a slightly better-performance option versus its previous counterpart. The RTX 2060 SUPER has a default clock of 1470Mhz and a boost clock of 1650Mhz.
The GALAX RTX 2060 SUPER 1-Click OC is one many variants from GALAX, joining the likes of the EX and GAMER line along with a few more, its certainly of their more value-to-performance option out there.
The GALAX RTX 2060 SUPER 1-Click features a light overclock on the boost clock at 1665Mhz. Nothing special but the card is aimed at being a modest RTX 2060. The cooler itself is light and features a relatively light-plastic shroud as well. The 90mm fans feature an idle fan setting which allows the fan to stop at a certain thermal target.
