Final Thoughts

NVIDIA has a really good product in its hands with the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, offering near GTX 1080 Ti levels of performance for just $399 and on a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. There's an upgraded and much faster 8GB of GDDR6 on the RTX 2060 SUPER making it much better in high-res situations compared to the slower 6GB of GDDR6 on the regular RTX 2060.

The inclusion of Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Control makes the deal even sweeter, as you'll be saving over $100 on those games alone. I'm not someone who recommends buying a graphics card for the bundled game, but Control is a great game to giveaway with an RTX graphics card as it's the perfect real-time ray tracing showcase game. Control isn't coming until August, so you'll have a couple of months to wait before you can crank RTX on the game.

NVIDIA sneaking in the release of its new SUPER cards day before the NDA lifts on AMD's next-gen Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards is a very strategic move, as they get their cards into reviewers' hands and reviews published days before Navi is detailed. My discussion on price is only valid until 7/7 when my reviews of the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT go live, and then I'll write another article up battling the two new cards from each camp in their own article. The price is going to be a big one for AMD to swallow post-SUPER.

Another area where the new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER will kick some serious ass is in 21:9 aspect ratio UltraWide gaming monitors with native 3440x1440 at 60-100Hz. I will be doing some 3440x1440 testing in the coming days on both the new SUPER cards and AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 series cards. Expect some more on UltraWide gaming SUPER soon.

Overall, the new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER represents the last 9 months of Turing in a kicker that shows NVIDIA doesn't even need to be on the 12nm node to continue expanding on its domination of graphics cards. We're looking at cool operating, power-sipping cards for the amount of GPU horsepower inside of the new GeForce RTX and RTX SUPER cards and it's all on the 12nm node.

The next card to get excited for after this is my review on the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, and then the release of the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER at the end of the month. The new RTX 2080 SUPER is going to sit perfectly between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, and should be quite the monster when it drops later this month for $699.

Summing up: If you're in the market for a new graphics card to power your games throughout the year like Control, the reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with RTX features, esports games like Apex Legends and Overwatch or even AAA titles like Battlefield V and Metro Exodus -- you're in safe hands with the hew RTX 2060 SUPER.

The Bottom Line

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER offers some truly kick ass performance for $399, with its upgraded 8GB of GDDR6 on a faster 256-bit memory bus making it considerably faster than the RTX 2060 in the right situations and high-res 1440p/4K gaming.
