Posted on July 2, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 11 Comments

If you brought a new RTX GPU recently, I have some bad news for you. Nvidia has just gone ahead and launched a new line of RTX GPUs. The company is launching its new RTX SUPER GPUs today, and it’s claiming to offer up to 25% increases in performance.

The new SUPER line comes with the RTX 2060 SUPER, the RTX 2070 SUPER, and the RTX 2080 SUPER. Here’s what’s new:

  • RTX 2060: At $399, the new GPU is 22% faster than the original RTX 2060, with new 2GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 VRAM, a memory bandwidth increase of 33.2%, and additional 256 CUDA Cores, 32 Tensor Cores and 4 RT Cores. The new GPU will apparently offer a 15% performance advantage on average over the original RTX 2060.
  • RTX 2070: At $499, the new RTX 2070 SUPER is 24% faster, with a 16% performance advantage on average over the original RTX  2070. The GPU also features extra 256 CUDA Cores, 32 Tensor Cores, and 4 RT Cores. It also comes with a NVLINK SLI connector.
  • RTX 2080: At a whopping $699, the new RTX 2080 SUPER comes with memory speeds of up to 15.5 Gbps. The new GPU comes with 15.5 Gbps GDDR6 VRAM, increasing the memory bandwidth to 496.1 GB/s, a 10.7% improvement, according to Nvidia. The new RTX 2080 SUPER is apparently faster than every other GeForce GPU, apart from the $1,099 RTX 2080 Ti.

Nvidia upgrading the RTX GPUs in such a short period could be a real bummer to those who only purchased the original RTX 20-series GPUs recently. These upgrades are still very impressive, though, with Nvidia promising massive performance games in a lot of popular titles. The new SUPER GPUs will be available for purchase this month, with the RTX 2060 SUPER and 2070 SUPER coming on the 9th of July, followed by the RTX 2080 Super on the 23rd of July.
