After leaving us in the dark for several weeks following a cryptic teaser, NVIDIA has today launched the new RTX Super series of graphics cards. These are essentially upgraded versions of the original RTX 2080, RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 with higher specs and better overall performance. We have the specs, pricing and release date information all here.
Two of these RTX Super cards are coming very soon. We have reviewed both the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 Super. Both will be available from the 9th of July with Founder’s Edition cards directly from Nvidia and AiB custom cards from the likes of ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA etc. The RTX 2080 Super will be arriving towards the end of this month.
Here is the spec table we have so far comparing the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 Super cards against the originals:
|GPU||RTX 2080 (FE)||RTX 2070 SUPER||RTX 2070 (FE)||RTX 2060 SUPER||RTX 2060 (FE)|
|Rays Cast||8 Giga Rays||7 Giga Rays||6 Giga Rays||6 Giga Rays||5 Giga Rays|
|GPU Boost Clock||1800 MHz||1770 MHz||1710 MHz||1650 MHz||1680 MHz|
|Memory Data Rate||14 Gbps||14 Gbps||14 Gbps||14 Gbps||14 Gbps|
|Total Video Memory||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6||6GB GDDR6|
|Memory Bandwidth||448 GB/sec||448 GB/sec||448 GB/sec||448 GB/sec||336.1 GB/sec|
As for the RTX 2080, the specs we have so far confirm that it will feature 3072 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 memory running at 15.5Gbps and will still offer 8 Giga Ray/s of ray-tracing performance. In terms of clock speeds, you will be getting a 1650MHz base clock and an 1815MHz boost speed. At this point in time, there is no confirmation on an RTX 2080Ti Super.
Now we get down to price. The RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super will be available on the 9th of July for £379 and £475 respectively. The Founder’s Edition RTX 2080 Super will cost £669 and will be coming towards the end of this month.
KitGuru Says: RTX Super was dropped on us rather suddenly. Now we will have to wait until the end of this week to see how it all stacks up against AMD’s new Radeon GPUs. What do you guys think of the RTX Super series? Are these the cards we should have had at launch?
