Nvidia RTX Super Lineup Succeeds RTX 2060, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080July 2, 2019
Hot on the heels of their recent Computex 2019 showcase, Nvidia today officially reveals its RTX Super lineup.
Nvidia revealed at a recent media conference that the new RTX Super graphics cards will succeed the existing lineup of Nvidia RTX 2060, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080. The new lineup of Nvidia RTX Super -RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super – will replace the current stack of upper echelon cards, with the sole exception of the RTX 2060.
Below is the new hierarchy of Nvidia’s RTX products:
- Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti
- Nvidia RTX 2080 Super
- Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
- Nvidia RTX 2060 Super
- Nvidia RTX 2060
Just like its predecessor, the new RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super carry the same 8GB GDDR6 VRAM. The biggest jump this time around would be the VRAM increase on the RTX 2060 Super, which has the same VRAM size as the other two Nvidia Super graphics cards. Moreover, the Nvidia RTX Super lineup boasts a significant increase in performance against the previous RTX lineup.
Pricing and availability
Both Nvidia RTX 2060 Super and Nvidia RTX 2070 Super will officially be available at all Nvidia partner retailers on July 9, 2019, and will carry USD $399 and USD $499 price tags respectively. The Nvidia RTX 2080 Super, on the other hand, will hit Nvidia partner retail stores on July 23, 2019, and will carry a USD $699 price tag.
Nvidia also revealed that they are working on a monitoring program for GPUs called Frame View. The program monitors and logs all of the GPU’s processes such as frame time, frame count, GPU power consumption, and even the total board power. Tho, it’s an Nvidia engineered program, Frame View will still work with competitor graphics cards but will not be able to monitor and log its total board power. Frame View is still in Beta testing as of this writing, but will soon be released to the consumer market later this year.
