From the appearance, this card is biased in price-performance, the graphics card length is short, only the use of dual fan radiator.

The interface was also cut off, and the RTX 2060 KO was missing a DP and USB-C, but retained the DVI-D.

However, the graphics card still has a full-size back plate, it is puzzling that the back plate model is still GeForce RTX 2060, no KO suffix, this may be EVGA’s own model name, as early as the GeForce 8800 series, EVGA has used this suffix name, The card is selling for less than the current RTX 2060, at $299.

More likely, NVIDIA will reduce the price of the RTX 2060 from the current $349 to $299 in response to the upcoming RX 5600 XT, which is priced at $269 and the yuan is priced at around ¥2,099. But the RTX 2060 above the domestic market has fallen to around ¥2,500, and it’s hard to say whether they will continue to cut prices. According to TechPowerUp, this RTX 2060 KO from EVGA will go on sale next week.

No way, NVIDIA currently holds the market initiative, product line planning and layout than AMD too fast, but also a lot of integrity, AMD want to use the new Navi family graphics card into the opponent’s product gap is not an easy thing. The weakness of the product line left them relying on price to get a bigger market, but we didn’t see it in the RX 5500 XT and RX 5600 XT later, even though the latter’s published performance was already affordable.
