I/O ports consist of a trio of DisplayPort 1.4m a single HDMI 2.0b and a USB Type-C that is VirualPort enabled.

The fans have the EVGA ‘E’ logo on them to supposedly makes less of a slipstream. There doesn’t appear to be any publicly available info to substantiate that, but it doesn’t appear to make them any louder or other negative effects.

You can easily see the iCX2 heatsink assembly under the cooling shroud.

The edge of the card has the GeForce RTX 2070 Super logo along the edge. There is a 6-pin and 8-pin connector for power.

One mildly amusing detail is that EVGA re-used extra shrouds from the RTX 2070 of last year, which is perfectly fine, but the just stuck a new sticker right over the old one. Well, more like over the scratch protective film of the old one, which lets it peel off really easily.
*Note from the editor* EVGA reached out to us and informed us this was an early temporary marking that was intended to be removed by the end user, and in fact no longer even comes on this model. You can read more about it here
