Distilling the GeForce RTX goodness down to a more amenable price point has resulted in the 2060 GPU being produced in multiple iterations by all of Nvidia's add-in board partners.
Gigabyte is no different, of course, and a good representation of price and performance can be had with the Gaming OC Pro version that has an out-of-the-gate 1,830MHz boost clock, dual-slot form factor, solitary 8-pin power connector, backplate, and generally capable cooler.

That pesky Founders Edition card, albeit not overclocked, is better built and £40 cheaper. But looking across to the other side, AMD's continued price re-evaluations have brought the Radeon RX Vega 64 looming into view. Priced at about the same levels for the cheapest cards, it's slightly faster at QHD and UHD in many titles, as evidenced by our two-card comparo.
There's nothing intrinsically wrong with the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming Pro OC, yet those two aforementioned factors will give would-be buyers pause for thought.
Well suited to FHD or QHD gaming
Factory overclocked on core
Cool and pretty quiet
Forward-looking Turing architecture
RX Vega 64 is faster where it counts
FE card hurts partners
No USB Type-C
