    Hi,
    I need some advice which GPU to choose.
    My two deal breakers are noise levels and price/performance ratio.
    I am looking at MSI 2070 VENTUS 8GB and MSI 2060 SUPER GAMING X.
    They both will fit into a small case and work at acceptable noise level.
    I wonder whether:

    1. 2060SUPER Gaming will have different chip over some cheaper 2060SUPER models (like 2070OC vs standard 2070)?

    2. Will 2060SUPER GAMING X overclock better than 2070 VENTUS thus with better cooling and better performance at the end will be a better choice? Or maybe it is the other way around and it is VENTUS that has a better OC potential? Can really find much info about this card and where I live it is currently on sale being 25EUR cheaper than MSI 2060 SUPER GAMING. I wonder why ;)

    Get the 2070 since it's cheaper and performance is a wash. It's probably discounted by 25$ since the 2070 is an EOL model and retailers are probably disposing stock to keep less SKUs.

    If you get lucky and get a better binned 2070, you'll probably get more performance per mhz overclocking due to having more CUDA cores than the 2060SUPER.

    thanks for a fast reply :) I am leaning towards 2070 myself, just did not decide yet and frankly it is kind of strange that almost no review of 2070 VENTUS can be found over the net.

    The reviewers can't review everything ;)

    I know, its just I though that maybe the card was so unworthy testing that no one wanted to do it.
