Nvidia launches GeForce RTX 2060 Super, 2070 Super and 2080 Super video cards
As expected, today the company Nvidia introduced a new line of video cards Super. As officially noted, the optimization of the architecture and technical process of the new products took almost a year, so ” they have the highest gaming performance and maximum energy efficiency compared to all other GPUs in their class .” “All others” should be understood primarily as an AMD Radeon RX 5700 video card.
The basic model of the line, GeForce RTX 2060 Super, has improved the most. First, it is built on a Turing architecture TU106-410 GPU with 2176 CUDA cores, 136 texture units (TMU) and 64 blending units (ROP). Also in the configuration of the model 272 tensor blocks and 32 Ray Tracing blocks. The base frequency is 1470 MHz, the frequency in Boost mode is 1650 MHz. Secondly, the memory capacity has increased from 6 to 8 GB – GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 14 GHz and is connected to the GPU with a 256-bit bus. The TGP (Total Graphics Power) of this video card is 175 watts.
According to official data, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is on average 15% faster than the RTX 2060 in games with a resolution of 1440p. Well, this model will compete with the Radeon RX 5700, priced at $ 380. The cost of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super itself is $ 400 in the US and may vary across global markets.
Moving up the lineup. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super will compete for consumer wallets with the Radeon RX 5700 XT. However, this model costs $ 50 more than its competitor: $ 500 against $ 450.
GeForce RTX 2070 Super is built on TU104-410 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores, 184 texture units and 64 blending units. In this model there are 320 grid blocks and 40 Ray Tracing blocks. The base clock frequency is 1605 MHz, and the frequency in Boost mode is 1770 MHz.
GeForce RTX 2070 Super received the same 8 GB of GDDR6 memory at 14 GHz and a 256-bit memory bus. Therefore, the memory bandwidth of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super is the same – 448 GB / s. But the TGP value in the older model is higher at 215 watts. According to Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super is faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, and on average 16% faster than the RTX 2070.
The flagship of the line, GeForce RTX 2080 Super, is based on the TU104-450 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores and has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 15.5 GHz with a 256-bit memory bus. The memory bandwidth of the model (of course, in the basic version without overclocking) at 4 GB / s does not reach the level of 500 GB / s.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Super outperforms Titan XP, and that says a lot. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super can be bought from July 7, then sales of the GeForce RTX 2080 Super will start only on July 23. The cost of this video card is $ 700 in the US market.
