Final Thoughts & Conclusion
EVGA proves that indeed you can have value and performance. The RTX 2070 Super Black provides outstanding performance very close to last year’s $699 RTX 2080 for a more affordable 5 bills. If you don’t mind doing a little overclocking, you can tie or even beat the 2080. The updated memory on the RTX 2070 Super Black is already pretty quick, but being able to get well north of the 16GHz mark is pretty impressive. We like the overall aesthetics of the Black edition cards and anyon wanting to build a very understated build free of the proverbial 'unicorn puke' will really enjoy this. Also, keep in mind that you can skip the added cost of a fancy cooler if you plan to later upgrade to a liquid cooled solution such as EVGA's Hybrid cooling kit or even to a full custom loop with the beautiful Hydro Copper Waterblock. Either way you go, there is no wrong answer here!
Great job EVGA!
