Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition – Nvidia Unleashes RTX on The $350 Market

Power, Thermals and Noise

Temps

For our thermal testing, we ran Gaming loads rather than a power virus type of load as this represents a far more realistic loading scenario for those looking to see what you can expect when gaming on your new RTX card.

We saw Idle temps similar to the 2070 which is not really a surprise being the same cooler. Putting the GPU under load you can see this is definitely outputting a bit less heat. The 2060 barely moved past 65 under full load.

Thermals while at max overclock are worth noting that with fans at auto only topped out at 71.

 

New Noise

The fan noise for the RTX 2060 Founders edition is nonexistant. even when overclocking with fans at auto the fans never broke over 50-52% they simply were not needed and you would be hard-pressed to hear this card even in a near silent system.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
