NVIDIA’s new RTX SUPER cards recently hit the market and have been spreading quite the buzz. While the RTX 2080 SUPER did not receive a big upgrade over the RTX 2080, the RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER cards got a major thrust with 11% – 13% increase in CUDA cores, increase in memory bandwidth, higher core clocks, and higher VRAM.
Although the new cards are great performers, the new SUPER branding has increased confusion among the consumers. For example, board partners such as Palit have already incorporated “Super” name in their JetStream series of GPUs, which buyers might mistake for RTX SUPER cards. To avoid such confusion, make sure to check the branding GeForce® RTX SUPER™ branding
In response to NVIDIA’s new cards, AMD has reduced their pricing for the RX 5700, RX 5700XT and the RX 5700 XT 50th anniversary edition by $50. The new $350 RX 5700 is on par with the RTX 2060 SUPER and will give stiff competition to the team green.
