ASUS RTX 2070 ROG Strix OC Review



The RTX 2070 GPU has proven popular since its launch. The ASUS Strix range also sells in large numbers. Is this the perfect marriage?

Beautiful card (fit and finish) as usual, but man that price.

The price is definitely a breaker for this card...

What are the 1080Ti's prices at currently? I mean, it performs better if you're not that much into 4K, so the 1080Tis might be a better solution if you're in desperate need for an upgrade...

A lot is saved by avoiding glass panels in your PC case.

The "ASUS Tax" is really becoming a thing this generation. There's always been a premium for their stuff and to a point you could argue it's worth it but this is getting ridiculous...

I agree, it used to present some form of value with better and quieter cooling, better reliability and better software, but for this example you could argue the value is non existent.
put into real terms this gpu or a Palit dual with an Asus 27" gaming monitor for the same price..... or a budget 2080 instead.

It should tell you something that this is the first time in 12 years that I have not gotten a new gen Nvidia card, Cannot condone the stupid prices and I'm someone that has bought a Titan X Maxwell and Titan Xp in the past
