GeForce RTX 2060 Super MSI Armor OC 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2060 Super MSI Armor OC 8GB is a mid to high-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. This is the 'Super' variant of the RTX 2060 and utilises a cut-down version of the RTX 2070 GPU.


Architecture
The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super MSI Armor OC 8GB supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p and 1440p screen resolutions.


GPU
It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106-410-A which has 2176 Shader Processing Units, 136 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1470 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz in Boost mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. This provides total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with an 8-pin power connector.


System Suggestions
The GeForce RTX 2060 Super MSI Armor OC 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
