Arktek Arsenal RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB Graphics Card
Arktek sent us the RTX 2060 Super Hyperion graphics through NEXT Technologies in the form of its local variant, the Arsenal RTX 2060 Super. Since this is a review sample we didn’t have the actual retail packaging as ours came in a black box. Nonetheless, this card is still the retail sample and not an engineering product.
The contents of the box reveal the Arktek Arsenal RTX 2060 Super GPU and a Molex to 8-pin adapter cable. It’s very rare to find a Molex adapter included in the box especially for RTX series cards. There’s no manual or warranty card included.
Design-wise, the shroud of the Arktek Arsenal RTX 2060 Super is simple and elegant and it reminds me of Galax’s old shroud and ASUS’s DCU-II GPUs. For a budget brand and a budget GPU, Arktek managed to include an all-black metal backplate.
The Arktek Arsenal RTX 2060 Super only consumes the standard 2-slot. Its cooler shroud extends the PCB by a few millimeters but is still relatively compact, especially for an RTX 2060 Super graphics card. The side view reveals a minimal amount of capacitors as well as a slightly thin heatsink compared to other brands. We’ll discuss how this affects the card’s performance in the latter part of this review.
The card only requires an 8-pin PCIE cable for power with a rated TDP of 175 watts according to its product page.
