    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2060 SUPER Video Card Review

    The New SUPER Cards

    You can see why we brought up the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in the pricing section.  NVIDIA claims that the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE is faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti which was $699 when it was launched.  That’s a claim we are going to test in this review today.  NVIDIA also claims the RTX 2060 SUPER FE is faster than the GTX 1080.

    GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

    This is based on the TU104 GPU.  The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE has 40 SMs versus the RTX 2070’s 36.  This means the RTX 2070 SUPER has 2560 CUDA Cores while the RTX 2070 had 2304.  The RTX 2070 SUPER also has 64 ROPs, 160 Texture Units, 320 Tensor Cores and 40 RT Cores.  This is superior to the original RTX 2070 which has 64 ROPs, 144 Texture Units, 288 Tensor Cores and 36 RT Cores.  The clock speed is also higher, the RTX 2070 SUPER has a Boost Clock of 1770MHz while the original RTX 2070 was at 1620MHz (1710MHz FE). 

    The RTX 2070 SUPER has 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit bus at 14GHz providing 448GB/sec of bandwidth.  This memory configuration is the same as the original RTX 2070.  The TGP of the original RTX 2070 was 175W while the RTX 2070 SUPER is 215W.  NVIDIA claims 16% average overall performance over the RTX 2070.

    GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 

    This is based on the TU106 GPU.  The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER FE has 34 SMs versus the RTX 2060’s 30.  This means the RTX 2060 SUPER has 2176 CUDA Cores while the RTX 2060 had 1920.  The RTX 2060 SUPER also has 64 ROPs, 136 Texture Units, 272 Tensor Cores and 34 RT Cores.  This is superior to the original RTX 2060 which has 48 ROPs, 120 Texture Units, 240 Tensor Cores and 30 RT Cores.  The clock speed is only slight lower, the RTX 2060 SUPER has a Boost Clock of 1650MHz while the original RTX 2060 was at 1680MHz. 

    Another big change with the RTX 2050 SUPER is that it has 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit bus at 14GHz providing 448GB/sec of bandwidth.  This memory configuration is a big upgrade from the original release RTX 2060 which had only 6GB of GDDR6 on a 192-bit memory bus at 14GHz giving it 336GB/sec of memory bandwidth.  This memory configuration upgrade matches that of the RTX 2070 and RTX 2070 SUPER.  The TGP of the original RTX 2060 was 160W while the RTX 2060 SUPER is 175W.  NVIDIA claims 15% average overall performance over the RTX 2060. 

    Card Pictures

    The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER measures longer than the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.  The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE is 10.75” in length while the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER FE is 9”.  These sizes match the original RTX cards they are replacing.  The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER FE requires one 8-pin power connector and one 6-pin power connector.  The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER FE requires only one 8-pin power connector.  All video cards have 3x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI and 1x USB Type-C.
