[SOLVED] Planning to buy an ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2060 but I'm seeing two different images of it online.

Hi. I just joined here. Been reading these forums for years, didn't expect I'll actually end up signing up and making a post myself :D

Straight to the point:

In Amazon, the output HDMI ports are over-under:


On ASUS official site, and where I'm purchasing the GPU from, all output ports are side by side and the heatsink is a little bit different.


On ASUS ROG official site: https://rog.asus.com/graphics-cards/graphics-cards/rog-strix/rog-strix-rtx2060-a6g-evo-gaming-model/gallery

Are there any differences in models, or just a matter of preference? I ask because it's easy to buy a defective GPU here. Thanks in advance.

This gallery from official rog.asus website has side by side ports, which makes me even more confused. I can't buy directly from ASUS because my country is sort of not supported.
Both are different models thats why

This one is Evo version on their site
https://rog.asus.com/graphics-cards/graphics-cards/rog-strix/rog-strix-rtx2060-o6g-evo-gaming-model/gallery

And this one is the OC version

Hope this cleared all your questions.

I think it's better if you buy it from their official website

Anything on their official website will not be a fake or defective card but on Amazon you never know as its a third party you are gonna purchase from.
Don't take risk and buy it from the official website
Also this is a video from Hardware unboxing which is an authentic source on which the company sends their cards for reviewing

On 4:23 mark you can see the ports which resembles the upper picture of Amazon you sent and it also resembles the fans design.

On this video you can check that the fans design resembles the official site one but the ports are the same as the amazon one.
6:37 mark

So conclusion is that you should go for the ports which resembles the upper pic as everyone has those ports.

So the first picture is ROG-STRIX-RTX2060-A6G-GAMING and the second one is ROG-STRIX-RTX2060-A6G-EVO-GAMING - as you see the model name differs by "EVO" letters, so they are indeed different models. Typical for Asus.
