NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards are virtually Ti releases that are named SUPER, since the original GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 launched 9 months ago. The new SUPER cards represent the refinement of Turing over these 9 months, and are beefier versions of their predecessors in multiple ways -- especially the RTX 2060 SUPER.
The new GeForce RTX SUPER cards are positioned even better for the future of gaming, including the exciting and constantly expanding range of ray tracing capable games. At E3 2019 when NVIDIA unveiled the new SUPER cards to me, we were briefed ahead of time that Cyberpunk 2077 would feature real-time ray tracing technology on GeForce RTX graphics cards. What a huge way to unveil and present SUPER with one of the hottest games of 2020 and one of the most anticipated games of all time powered by real-time ray tracing on GeForce RTX.
Sadly I didn't have anywhere near enough time to test anything with ray tracing as I had just moved office space in the week of the GeForce RTX release and instead spent my time re-benchmarking everything (all cards, all resolutions) on the new drivers. Once I'm finished this I'll go into some ray tracing benchmarks with Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, and Battlefield V.
After that, comes the new Navi cards with AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 series that I will be testing head-to-head against SUPER this week. In the meantime I'll build my new Zen 2-based AMD Ryzen 7 3700X + X570 chipset and PCIe 4.0-capable motherboard and SSD system. I'll test the new SUPER cards and Navi cards all in the Ryzen 7 3700X and verse it against the scores in my Core i7-8700K test bed used here for my graphics card reviews.
Pricing & Availability
NVIDIA is making its new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER available starting July 9, as for pricing we're looking at $399 for the RTX 2060 SUPER and $499 for the 2070 SUPER.
NVIDIA details its new GeForce RTX line up perfectly:
- GeForce RTX 2080 TI lives on as the best gaming GPU on the planet.
- GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER slots in at $699 and offers more performance than the RTX 2080 at the same price. Memory speed has been cranked up to 15.5Gbps. It's faster than Titan Xp.
- GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is up to 24% faster (avg 16%) than the GeForce RTX 2070 for the same price. It beats a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
- GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is up to 22% faster (avg 15%) than RTX 2060, and it has 8GB of memory instead of 6GB. It's faster than GTX 1080, and it nearly matches RTX 2070 performance, for $399.
