ASUS has already launched a series of ASUS Dual GeForce RTX cards, but it seems that they weren’t satisfied with it yet. They have quietly introduced two new models with the new ASUS Dual EVO cooler, featuring two Axial-tech fans instead of the older Wing-Blade fans.

In addition the newer fans which stop at temperatures below 55Β°C, ASUS also redesigned the backplate, with this one look very impressive. The slotted design looks pretty aggressive, and it looks pretty good even without any lighting here. If anything, the clean lines are also very pleasing to the eye, unlike more distracting patterns that might even clash with your build’s theme.

ASUS also didn’t forget about RGB, with a subtle light strip on the side of the card. It’s a lot less impressive than their ROG Strix lineup, but hey at least it’s something. Most of the competition do not even offer RGB lighting with their lesser lineups. The combination of the brushed finish and grooves help to emphasize the aggressiveness of the graphics card, which looks great here.

The cards do feature substantially lower boost clocks though, so it would remain to be seen how would the Dual EVO variants perform. ASUS also adopts the reference power connector configurations, a single 6-pin for the ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 EVO, and 6-pin + 8-pin connectors for the Dual GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6 EVO. ASUS also removed the USB-C port from the Dual GeForce RTX 2070 EVO, but retained it for the Dual GeForce RTX 2080 EVO.

Here’s a table summing up the Dual EVO cards versus the ROG Strix GeForce RTX lineup:

One thing to note is that ASUS might be usingΒ binned chips in the Dual EVO series to make way for more affordable offerings. With that aside, the Dual EVO cards actually look pretty good, with its chunky design reminding me of the ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

What do you think of the ASUS Dual GeForce RTX EVO cards?
