There have been uncertainties over the exact performance figures of the upcoming NVIDIA RTX Super cards with different benchmarks painting an inconsistent picture of where exactly they’ll fit in the graphics card hierarchy. The Ashes of the Singularity performance indicates solid gains in case of the RTX 2070 Super, but the 2060 S appeared a bit wobbly. Today, the OpenCL scores for the 2060S and the 2070S have surfaced and indicate the opposite.
Keep in mind that the OpenCL scores don’t give a good estimate of the gaming performance and are instead more useful for Data-Center and professional workloads such as accelerators, video-editing, parallel processing and so on. Still, comparing them to the original RTX cards does give a relative idea of the compute performance.
As you can see, the RTX 2060 Super is faster than the RTX 2070 which is impressive considering that it’s going to be quite a bit cheaper. However, if you look at the RTX 2070 Super, it fails to level with the RTX 2080, although the gap is slim. This basically reiterates what I’d said earlier.
The RTX 2060 Super’s main advantage is a wider bus and hence a higher bandwidth, while the RTX 2070 Super has more shaders compared to its non-Super variant. So in case of the latter, the gains will be higher in shader intensive games while in t
