Nvidia releases RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super

Well, they actually released them a week ago. But, custom models of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super are available starting today. You can pick them up starting at $399 and $499 respectively.

Based on early benchmark results, the RTX 2060 Super looks to have replaced the old RTX 2070 at a much lower price point. While the RTX 2070 Super has replaced the old RTX 2080, again at much a lower price point. The RTX 2080 Super is slated to perform very closely to the RTX 2080 Ti for $699 instead of $1199… Sorry to all RTX 2080 Ti owners.

All of the new Super cards are coming with some pretty big changes. The RTX 2060 Super has been upgraded from 6GB to 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The RTX 2070 Super is now using the same GPU (tu104) as the RTX 2080, just a slightly cut-down variant. It’s also capable of taking advantage of NVLink, a feature once reserved for the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 Super, once it releases on July 23, will be noticeably more powerful than the current RTX 2080 and just a little slower than the RTX 2080 Ti.

Long story short, Nvidia has effectively shifted their RTX lineup down a tier.

The RTX 2060 Super is now the RTX 2070. The RTX 2070 Super is now the RTX 2080. Finally, the RTX 2080 Super will bridge the gap between the 2080 and the 2080 Ti. Whether this is good, or bad, depends on if you already own an “old model” RTX 2060, 2070, or 2080.

Numerous custom models have already hit the digital shelves, but most options are already sold out at the time of writing. If they’re not already sold out, then they’re definitely about to sell out.

At the end of the day, and as impressive as the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super are, they weren’t enough to beat AMD’s RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT¬†which released last Sunday.
