Nvidia Launches New GeForce RTX Super Series Of GPUs

22

If you think the RTX line is oh-so-powerful, well, it’s not now. As Nvidia just launched a new line of GPUs to up the ante. The new GeForce RTX Super series is mostly a direct upgrade of the existing RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 graphics cards. Like a Ti version. Well, sort of.

The biggest upgrade here is the RTX 2060 Super. It gets 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, an additional 2GB from the base version and now more in line with the rest of the RTX line. Nvidia’s benchmark claims the RTX 2060 Super performs slightly better -an average of 15% better- than the the normal one at 1080p, safely hovering above 60fps.

But it is slightly pricier than the regular RTX 2060, $50 USD more at $399 USD (around RM1,653). For more laymen comparisons, it’s faster than last-gen’s top GPU the GTX 1080.

Meanwhile, the RTX 2070 Super is a straight-up improvement to the RTX 2070. It adds an additional 256 CUDA Cores, 32 Tensor Cores, and 4 RT Cores which leads to an average performance increase of 16% in average. It is priced at $499 USD (RM 2,067).

The RTX 2080 Super is a slight upgrade to the RTX 2080 and is now better than any other Nvidia card, even the Titan Xp, but not the ridiculous RTX 2080Ti. There’s also more cores being added, and its VRAM speed is upped to 15.5 Gbps – 1.5Gbps faster than usual. It is priced at $599 (RM 2,895).

The RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super will be out on July 9th and the RTX 2080 on July 23rd. The timing of release is rather timely- most likely to undercut the upcoming AMD RX5700 XT coming out on July 7th.

Qualifying purchases of these new fancier cards will net you a copy of Wolfenstein Youngblood and Control, both with RTX support.
