Introduction & Pricing

NVIDIA released its new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER last month and while we've reviewed some of the custom RTX 2060 SUPER cards already, the new ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI is on the review table today.

ZOTAC comes into the custom RTX 2060 SUPER game with its SUPER MINI card stretching the limits of size, coming in as a smaller size but packing in all of the goodness that the Turing GPU architecture and GDDR6 memory can deliver. We have the same 8GB of GDDR6 on board, the GPU will boost up to 1650MHz, and it requires an 8+6-pin PCIe power connector setup.

It comes in at just 8.3 inches meaning it will fit into 99% of systems on the market, harnessing all of the engineering talent at ZOTAC and the great work NVIDIA has already done to the GeForce RTX 20 series range of cards.

ZOTAC's new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI is available on Amazon at the time of writing for $469.

Specs: Turing GPU & Faster GDDR6

It's Still TU106, But Now It's SUPER

The new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER uses the same TU106 GPU that was found inside of the normal RTX 2060, but it features some more of its Turing GPU goodness unlocked and an important tweak to the GDDR6 memory: there's now 8GB of it, instead of 6GB.

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI: Small, Yet Crazy Powerful 500 | TweakTown.com

Before we get into the GDDR6 memory difference, the TU106 GPU itself inside of the RTX 2060 SUPER is changed in all the right ways. We have 2176 CUDA cores versus the 1920 CUDA cores found in the original RTX 2060, while the new SUPER offering increases its SMs to 34 versus 30 SMs on the original RTX 2060. We have base GPU clocks of 1470MHz on the RTX 2060 SUPER comapred to 1365MHz on the non-SUPER, while GPU boost clocks are at 1650MHz versus 1680MHz on the OG RTX 2060.

NVIDIA making the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER more, uh, SUPER, results in 7.2 TFLOPs over the 6.5 TFLOPs on the original RTX 2060. The Tensor TFLOPs also increase with the new RTX 2060 SUPER packing 57.4 TFLOPs of performance versu the 51.6 TFLOPs of the original RTX 2060, while the RTX 2060 SUPER has 6 Giga Rays versus 5 Giga Rays on the original RTX 2060.

GDDR6 Upgrades

The largest change to the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is that NVIDIA has offered gamers 8GB of GDDR6 over the 6GB of GDDR6 on the RTX 2060, as well as putting it on a much faster 256-bit memory bus which offers up a huge increase in overall memory bandwidth over the RTX 2060.

NVIDIA ships the GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 at 14Gbps on a 192-bit memory bus that offers 336GB/sec of bandwidth, the wider 256-bit memory bus and the same 14Gbps GDDR6 sees memory bandwidth skyrocket up to 448GB/sec. If we compare the 448GB/sec from the RTX 2060 SUPER against the GTX 1080 and its 8GB of GDDR5X when it dropped, on the same 256-bit memory bus the GTX 1080 only had 320GB/sec of memory bandwidth. Impressive stuff for a 'mid-range' graphics card, eh?

Test System Specs

Our New GPU Test Rig

Welcome to the latest revision of our GPU test bed, with our system being upgraded from the Intel Core i7-7700K to the Core i7-8700K. The CPU is cooled by the Corsair H115i PRO cooler, with the 8700K overclocked to 5GHz. We've stayed with GIGABYTE for our motherboard with their awesome Z370 AORUS Gaming 7.

Final Thoughts

ZOTAC's new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI falls in exactly where it needs to in our gaming and synthetic benchmarks, outperforming the stock RTX 2060 SUPER Founders Edition by a few % or FPS. What it does differently is cooling and size, compared to the FE.

ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI: Small, Yet Crazy Powerful 804 | TweakTown.com

I put the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER MINI under the usual loads for benchmarking but we are building a real-world gaming benchmark database for high-FPS testing that includes Apex Legends and Overwatch. These games ran beautifully with a mixed range of in-game details at 2560x1440 and easily reached 120-144FPS average.

This is the target audience for the RTX 2060 SUPER MINI and it hits it beautifully. ZOTAC completes the package with one of the smallest RTX 2060 SUPER cards we've tested so far, a great-looking (but not over-the-top) cooler and performance that beats the RTX 2060 SUPER FE. Great news all round and a solid buy.
