Gigabyte Has A White RTX 2060 Graphics Card In The Works

It’s good when a GPU manufacturer does something a little different, moving us a little further away from designs that are all too common within the industry. 

While Gigabyte’s recent Gaming PRO series of Geforce RTX graphics cards may not move away from the commonplace triple fan RGBified designs used by many of its peers. The company has made the bold decision of releasing a White Edition of many of their Gaming OC models, delivering an aesthetic twist that leaves everyone in the OC3D office a little mesmerised. 

Yes, a colour change isn’t that significant, but who else offers that option this generation? Yes, KFA2’s EX White series do, but they ship with Nvidia reference clock speeds, which means that they sit below the Nvidia Founders Edition models.

Gigabyte plans to release an RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White GPU in the near future, offering the same cooler as the graphics card’s RTX 2070 counterpart. The GPU also ships with the same clock speeds as the standard RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro, offering a boost clock speed of 1830MHz, which is a decent boost over Nvidia’s 1680MHz reference speeds.   

For visual purposes, we have used images of Gigabyte’s RTX 2070 Gaming OC White graphics card, though it is worth noting that the RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro doesn’t offer users a USB-C VirtualLink connection, which shouldn’t be considered as a significant downside for end-users, as the connection isn’t used on any shipping VR headset.

On the cooling side, the RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro used the same cooler as its RTX 2070 counterpart, giving the GPU plenty of thermal headroom to work with. Power-wise, the RTX 2060 can function with just an 8-pin PCIe power connection, dropping the extra 6-pin that the RTX 2070 model offers. Otherwise, both graphics cards appear identical. 

For display connectivity, the RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White offers triple DisplayPort 1.4 outputs and a single HDMI 2.0 connection.
