Nvidia Releases The Beast – Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Review

Meet The King of Super!

Its been a few weeks since RTX 2060 and 2070 SUPER was unveiled. They brought with them some much-needed performance bumps and more importantly price reductions that will make these cards a lot more likely to find their way into new gaming machines. It is no secret that the gaming community has held some disdain with the RTX brand and respective models since launch and the respective pricing, along with the limited RTX content available. Now as more content and DXR support are starting to come to fruition the idea of having DXR enabled hardware is becoming an very enticing proposition.

That leads us today to the newest and highest end of the SUPER series, at least from what has been announced thus far. The RTX 2080 SUPER, this card is meant to take a step ahead of the existing RTX 2080 and even match or beat the king of Pascal, the TITAN Xp. This is from Nvidias claims and I say its about time we dig in and see what the new RTX 2080 SUPER is all about.

The RTX 2080 SUPER joins the RTX Stable with the following price points for direct Nvidia based models..

  • GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER $ 699 (Source: Nvidia)
  • GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER $ 499 (Source: Nvidia)
  • GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER $ 399 (Source: Nvidia)

The RTX 2080 SUPER slots itself into the $699 price point, which is $100 less than the RTX 2080 that it is replacing. This is part of that shift I mentioned in pricing/perf which is currently in progress.

Features

  • New Turing based GPU featuring hardware-based acceleration and hybrid rendering capabilities
  • New Streaming Multiprocessor (SM)
