The ASUS RTX 2080 Ti Matrix is the world's first graphics card with fully integrated watercooling. ASUS has managed the seemingly impossible and crammed waterblock, pump, and radiator into a triple-slot graphics card. The Matrix is also highly overclocked, making it the fastest RTX 2080 Ti we ever tested.

The most affordable Turing graphics card is also NVIDIA's most important thus far, as it replaces the GTX 1060 6 GB which sold in mountains. Zotac's cost-effective implementation of the new GeForce GTX 1660 gives you more: a twin-fan cooler at NVIDIA's baseline price.

Priced at $249, ASRock's Radeon RX 590 Phantom Gaming is the most affordable RX 590 at this time. This dual-fan, dual-slot card includes the highly popular idle-fan-off feature many GTX 1660 Ti cards are lacking, but faces strong competition from NVIDIA's latest card otherwise.

The MSI GTX 1660 Ti Ventus XS is a cost-efficient design, coming at NVIDIA's baseline price of $279. Even at that price point, MSI managed to squeeze in a backplate and dual-fan cooler.

MSI's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z is the company's flagship RTX 2080 Ti. Its out of the box overclock is larger than on most other cards, and it actually provides significant performance gains. MSI also added a lot of features for overclockers, and RGB is present, too.

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060 doesn't seem cheap at $349, but this new card has enough steam to beat AMD's RX Vega lineup at better pricing and with much better power/heat/noise. Actually, the RTX 2060 obsoletes much of NVIDIA's GeForce 10 Pascal stack, too.

While out of the box speeds are identical, we found it to house the potential for a massive 44% memory overclock, which lifts the card to new performance levels.
