RTX 2080 goes SUPER
Just earlier this month, on July 2nd NVIDIA announced three new refreshed SUPER video cards in the GeForce RTX lineup. Two of these video cards, the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER became available on July 9th. We reviewed both of those video cards in our NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2060 SUPER Video Card Review. These were truly refreshed video cards which brought about real tangible performance upgrades, and not just clock speed boosts either.
There was also a third “SUPER” video card announced on July 2nd, but we did not talk about it. That is because the video card in question is just now being launched today, July 23rd. It is the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, the third SUPER card in this new lineup with an MSRP of $699. We’ve got all the info and a full review for you today of this new video card as it is the newest member of the NVIDIA Turing family. We will even do a little overclocking and see what kind of headroom there is.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is a $399 video card that provides much better performance over the original release GeForce RTX 2060. It has more SMs, more CUDA Cores, more ROPs, more Texture Units, more Tensor Cores and more RT Cores as well as more and faster VRAM and memory bandwidth compared to the original release GeForce RTX 2060. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is a $499 video card. Compared to the RTX 2070 original release it has more SMs, more CUDA Cores, more Texture Units, more Tensor Cores and more RT Cores. It also has a higher boosted clock speed.
Once again, we will show this pricing table so you can get a full grasp on how the video cards lineup. The important part here is that the new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is $100 less in price compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition. It sits right at the same price as a standard, original release, RTX 2080. It should also be noted that AMD’s Radeon VII has the same MSRP of $699 when it was released earlier this year. That puts it right alongside the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 SUPER pricing. The Radeon VII may not be around for long, but technically it is the price comparable competition from AMD, so we are going to include it in our review.
