MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X – Test Setup

In testing and benchmarking the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X, the system I used is powered by an 8th Gen. Intel Core i7-8700K, overclocked to 4.9 GHz. The CPU is installed on an MSI MEG Z390 ACE motherboard. Below are the rest of the system specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit ver. 1809
Motherboard: MSI MEG Z390 ACE
Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12A
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB DDR4-3000MHz
Graphics card: MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X
Storage Drives: WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD, Crucial MX500 2TB
Power Supply: Seasonic 850W Prime Titanium
Chassis: Thermaltake Core P5

When I tested the MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X, I was using the GeForce driver version 431.36 for Windows 10 64bit. All games were tested in three resolutions, namely: 1920×1080 or full HD, 2560×1440 or WQHD and 3840×2160 or 4K ultra HD. For the synthetic benchmarks, I used the benchmark tools from 3DMark and Unigine 2. I also used the following games to test the graphics card: Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Battlefield V, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Metro Exodus, Middle Earth Shadow of War, Monster Hunter World, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Ray tracing benchmarks are seen on Battlefield V’s and Metro Exodus graphs.

Below are GPUz and GPGPU screenshots of the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X:

MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X – Noise and Temperature

When it comes to noise, the MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming X is pretty much dead silent during light load and idle situations. This is thanks to its Zero Frozr technology, where its do not run when in these conditions. However, on full load, the fans produce a small audible sound. You might not notice it if you’re using a closed case/chassis setup. But when using an open test bench chassis, I can hear the graphics card’s (soft) humming when in full load.

When the fans are not running and the GPU is passively cooled by the large heatsink, its temperature plays around 53° Celsius. However, once the graphics card is stress out, the fans immediately increases its fan speed up to 79% or up to around 2600 RPM. This keeps the graphics card temperature just below 80° Celsius. You can manually tweak or customize the fan curve to your liking using MSI’s Afterburner.
Let’s proceed to the next page and see the scores that we got with the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X graphics card.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

    • “biased fake bad test”? which one? biased no, all gpu temp tests regardless of manufacturer are tested using furmark. fake? we tested it and it’s the result we got. it’s not fake. you do know that temps are dependent on other factors as well. if your 2060s gaming x got 63c under full load then that’s great. we didn’t say this is a bad card with bad cooler. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
