IIRC the KO has some components of the 2080 inside of it, which doesn’t change gaming performance but improves workstation performance a fair bit.

The KO is a hobbled 2060. It was Nvidia's answer to the 5600XT when it not only destroyed the 1660, but started nipping at the heels of the 2060. Nvidia partnered with EVGA and release the KO as a $50 cheaper, stripped down 2060. It has a subpar blower and locked voltage (can't OC), but it's still a 2060 at $300. If you can spare the extra cash a pure 2060 is definitely better, and ironically isn't always more expensive. I've seen the founders edition 2060 sometimes cheaper than the KO.

the KO is in theory cheaper and it performs better in some cases, it uses the same die as the 2080 and Nvidia forgot to disable some components of the die

I guess it might vary with the aftermarket cards, but you can OC the FE 2060 well over 2000Mhz and you aren't getting the KO anywhere near there. A good "regular" 2060 will without question beat the KO.

The KO is a workstation card that was too defective to be one so it got sold as a 2060. It's equipped with a horrible cooler so it runs hot, it's loud and overall a shit option.

 

Either get a normal 2060 with a decent cooler or a 5600 XT

in gaming, yes in some other tasks the KO will absolutely smoke the 2060
