So as AMD is preparing to launch the 7nm Ryzen 3000 chips and the Radeon RX 5700 lineup alongside on the 7th of July, NVIDIA is looking to tackle Navi and RDNA with its supercharged RTX cards (SUPER). Expected to be announced on the 2nd of July (as per Videocardz), with a launch date of 9th July, the RTX Super cards will come with increased core counts, better ray-tracing capabilities, and faster memory. The launch date for the RTX 2080S is still pending, but the reveal should come alongside the other three. According to a game benchmark posted by TUM_APISAK on Twitter, the RTX 2060 Super will be a bit slower than the Radeon RX 5700 XT (game not mentioned).
Yes, it’s just one test as he points out, but the delta is rather significant, and I believe it’ll be safe to say that the 2060S will be competing with the RX 5700, at a price tag of $379 with the latter costing north of $400. This means that even if the Super is faster, it’ll still come with an additional investment.
RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super
APISAK has also shared the core clocks of the RTX Super lineup which lines up with what the TechPowerUp Database says. The RTX 2060 Super is going to run at a base clock of 1,470MHz, and a boost of 1,650MHz, while the RTX 2070S and 2080S will be clocked at 1,605MHz and 1,650MHz, respectively. The boost clocks are expected to be 1,770MHz and 1,850MHz, respectively. Don’t go by the TPU Database performance estimates as they are based on mere conjecture rather than benchmarks or game tests. Cheers!
