    I'd like to see benchmarks & comparisons of where this falls in line at of the other cards ........ 
     
    It seems to be pretty low on the list of what's already out ?..,.. so I am assuming it is for the super-budget builder ?  ...And if that's the case , why put RTX features on it when there is barely a chance ray-tracing would be runnable at any decent frames.?

    It's literally just a straight RTX 2060.  Same memory, cores, clocks.

    They must have had a few low binned TU106's to dump.  Perfect for the 1080p / 144hz Fortnite crowd.
     
    Solid pricing for what it is.

    Seems like a video card to compete with AMDs recent video card launch.

    Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070 FTW 3

    Yeah it's kinda between the RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 super as far as the specs.

    Whats the point of metal backplate? Seems like the backplate could actually make things run hotter. Are there tests that confirm this? If it just for the looks...

    finally a signature without that associate code

    Metal does conduct heat pretty well better then plastic so it would probably run cooler.

    I would argue that it restricts airflow. Also if it were so good at conducting there wouldn't be cutouts on some elements...

    Backplates have some thermal pads between them and the PCB and are used for looks as well as heat transfer

    Not always. Sometimes they are only for cosmetics, have no thermal pads, and cause the PCB temperature to be higher. For this low-performance video card, it could be purely cosmetic since the video card is in a cost-cutting market and doesn't usually need much cooling. Since it is a video card with cut costs, I am surprised that it has a backplate at all.

    Some places also have cutouts because they are a little higher on the pcb and to keep the backplate low and flat its probably better to have a cutout rather then make the backplate sit higher off the pcb with thick thermal pads or higher standoffs on the plate. Regardless a backplate is going to have minimal if any effect on the thermals of the card IMO.

    Backplate can decrease a few degrees while supporting the GPU from further sag.

    Famously, they can also increase temperatures a few degrees.  It really depends on the product and execution.

    EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO: up to 47% performance gain in non-gaming applications 2020/01/23 18:46:45 (permalink)
    Turns out that there is an unexpected reason why these cards are interesting. Apparently it was even a surprise to NVIDIA and EVGA.
     


    The EVGA RTX 2060 KO has a cut-down RTX 2080 core which happens to perform up to 47% better than expected in some non-gaming applications.

    My RX 480 has a backplate and it seems to be able to even out the temperature a bit.
     
    It is secured by a lot of screws suggesting it is as much a protector as anything.
     
    The cost is does not add much to the BOM so many cards today now use them.

    I would put blame on case air flow if that is the case.  Shouldn't be really increasing the temps.

    Front intake and rear/top exhaust fans can do wonders for thermal management.

    Exactly. This is one reason among other reasons I decided to go to a Corsair 1000D chassis.

    EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO: up to 47% performance gain in non-gaming applications 2020/01/24 05:05:29 (permalink)
    Who cares about the backplate? It doesn't really matter one way or another. You guys are carrying on a dead discussion from weeks ago.

    So.... what about the video I posted? The EVGA RTX 2060 KO has a cut-down RTX 2080 core which happens to perform up to 47% better than expected in some non-gaming applications. Not even EVGA or NVIDIA expected this. I wonder if there will be any change in marketing since this was discovered.

    I encourage you to watch the video above. It is true. Good is subjective and depends on the intended use.

    As far as gaming goes, the EVGA RTX 2060 KO is nothing special. In fact, it is inferior in a couple of ways. But that is to be expected for a cost-cutting card. Stock against stock, it's fine for gaming.

    The thing that is surprisingly special about it is its rendering abilities in non-gaming applications. Since it is a cost-cutting card, price for performance for workstation rendering abilities is unexpectedly good.

    I bought an "Ultra" version of the KO last Tuesday and it should be here Monday, so I haven't had a chance to see if it's got the TU104 with the better CUDA performance. Anybody else with one know if it does? CPU-Z should be able to tell you the "Code Name" in the Graphics tab.

    But yeah, I do some CUDA rendering for work so this is a welcome surprise for me. Thought I was just getting a cheap upgrade for my 1060, but could be getting a bit more. Hopefully they won't try to gimp the CUDA cores in future driver updates, lol.

    EDIT: Couple of days ago VideoCardz put out an article called "Some EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KOs ship with Turing TU104 GPU, not TU106." Then it goes on to talk about how GN and TechPowerUp both found TU104 dies in their cards. They don't talk about 106's being found anywhere, though. So are there 106 variants of the KO boards mixed in with the 104's? That just seems weird to me, but I'm not well versed in any of this stuff.

    No idea if anyone cares, but I found somebody (TAG Gaming on YouTube) who has the KO "Ultra" and they let me know that it does have the TU104 Revision A with Samsung memory. It's not exactly surprising, but just wanted to make sure since it's a different SKU and there's hardly any info about it. They also say it runs about 14c hotter than a non-KO EVGA 2060 in their benchmarks. For someone like me just doing 1080p 60Hz V-sync'd casual gaming every couple weeks, I think it'll work out.

Then it goes on to talk about how GN and TechPowerUp both found TU104 dies in their cards. They don't talk about 106's being found anywhere, though. So are there 106 variants of the KO boards mixed in with the 104's? That just seems weird to me, but I'm not well versed in any of this stuff.


    According to the video from Gamers Nexus which I posted above, EVGA confirmed that all EVGA RTX 2060 KO video cards will have the TU104 dies. It's the other 2060 video cards from a variety of vendors which may or may not have the TU104 dies; and will change during production.
