Nvidia is determined to cover every option possible in the GPU market in an attempt to keep AMD at bay. There are currently five RTX models available and three GTX models for this Turing generation.
Nvidia is now expanding that choice to include an additional three options with a new Super moniker, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they add a few new Ti models before the next generation.
The new Super models come in the form of the RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2080 SUPER and sit above the standard model but below a Ti model.
The 2070 and 2060 models will launch on the 2nd of July with the no current launch data for the RTX 2080 SUPER.
The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is using TU104 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores. This model comes with the same memory configuration as RTX 2070 Non-Super: 8GB GDDR6 256-bit with 14 Gbps bandwidth. This SKU will require 30W more than its predecessor (215W)
The RTX 2060 SUPER is now featuring TU106 GPU with 2176 CUDA cores. The Wattage has increased by 15W to 175W. The biggest change came to memory configuration. Unlike RTX 2060 Non-Super the new card has 8GB GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit interface.
In regards to the RTX 2080 SUPER it has only been mentioned and there has been a claim of 15 Gbps which is higher than any other RTX card.
Both SKUs (2070S and 2060S) will be available on July 9th. On the same day, the embargo on AIC cards will lift. Only Founders Edition models reviews will be posted on July 2nd. Pricing information is not available yet.
It is however believed the new cards will lead to a drop in price with the older cards, which is claimed to increased competition with the up and coming AMD cards. The timing of the launch is also suspiciously close to the AMD RX 5700 launch, and Nvidia clearly wants to steal some of the hype.
The new Super cards are claimed to be around 15% faster than the standard models sitting below them.
