NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER: Fastest GDDR6 EVER!

Overclocking = 18Gbps GDDR6!


When it comes to overclocking the TU102 GPU you're not going to go much further with the RTX 2080 SUPER over the RTX 2080, with my sample coming in at around 2000-2040MHz maximum OC. But the GDDR6 is where things get fun.




The new and improved 8GB of GDDR6 being clocked at 15.5Gbps might mean the new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER has the fastest GDDR6 in the world, but that didn't stop me from wanting to push it to its limits.




NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER cards have huge OC headroom for GDDR6 overclocking, with both my samples (RTX 2080 SUPER Founders Edition and MSI RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING X TRIO) both reaching 18Gbps in total.


  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER overclocked: 18Gbps
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER stock: 15.5Gbps
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 stock: 14Gbps



In VRAM bandwidth starved games like Shadow of War we see a great increase in performance, up from the RTX 2080 SUPER at stock clocks with 74FPS average at 4K all the way to 83FPS when overclocked. It brings it much closer to the RTX 2080 Ti and its 87FPS, showing that in the right situations that crazy-fast GDDR6 will make a big difference.
