Zotac's GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mini is priced at $400, matching the NVIDIA Founders Edition. As the name suggests, it is a bit shorter than the FE, which should help improve compatibility with smaller cases. Unfortunately, the card isn't overclocked, and its power limit isn't increased either.

Just a few days ago, AMD commented on the idle clock behavior of their new Zen 2 processors, which has been criticized by many. The company also released a chipset update for mitigation. We thoroughly tested the new version in our application and gaming test suite using the Ryzen 9 3900X on X570.

At the top of the mainstream stack, the MEG X570 ACE is competing in a tough bracket. With 2.5 Gb/s LAN, WiFi 6, and a VRM that is both sophisticated and overbuilt, the X570 ACE has a lot going for it. So does the competition, however, which is why MSI armed the ACE with a secret weapon: a heat pipe connection between the chipset and VRM heatsinks.

NVIDIA swings to the rescue of its $700 price point by "Super"-charging the TU104 silicon and giving it the fastest memory solution ever. In our testing, the RTX 2080 Super achieves a 16% lead over the RTX 2070 Super, making it a solid choice for 4K gaming that doesn't break the bank.

MSI's GeForce RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio is the quietest RTX 2080 Super card we tested today. It not only runs quieter, but also significantly cooler than the competition. MSI still includes an overclock out of the box, and manual overclocking works very well, too.

The Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 ARGB is the ideal PSU for users fancying lots of RGB lighting options. On top of that, its performance is great, and it comes with lots of cables and connectors for a potent gaming system. The only downsides are its increased noise output under harsh operating conditions and limited availability in the US.
