Today, NVIDIA announced the new RTX SUPER series graphics cards. This is an incremental improvement to the existing NVIDIA RTX series GPUs with real-time ray tracing.
The main differences are an approximately 10% to 25% boost in some numbers:
- Extra CUDA cores
- Extra Texture units
- A few more MHz boost performance
- A few more GB/sec of memory bandwidth
- A smidgen more power consumption
Of the SUPER versions of the RTX 2060, 2070, and 2080, the RTX 2070 SUPER is getting the biggest spec boost with a leap from 144 CUDA cores to 184 CUDA cores.
Official third-party benchmarks are appearing elsewhere, however, NVIDIA provides this chart putting the RTX SUPER series squarely between the original RTX 2060 and the RTX 2080 Ti:
This is NVIDIA’s probable answer to the AMD Radeon 5700 series that was also recently announced by AMD. More performance is being milked out of existing GPUs without a die shrink or improvement.
The RTX SUPER GPU series ships on July 23rd, 2019.
