NVIDIA Announces the GeForce RTX Super Family

NVIDIA today supercharged its lineup of gaming GPUs by introducing GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER -- delivering best-in-class gaming performance and real time ray tracing for today's and next-generation games. The result of nearly a year of architectural and process optimizations, the new GeForce RTX SUPER GPUs deliver the fastest gaming performance, and the best power efficiency of any gaming GPU in their class. They also offer gamers an uncompromised combination of leading performance and cutting-edge features.

"The ecosystem driving real-time ray tracing is immense -- tens of millions of GPUs, industry standard APIs, leading game engines and an all-star roster of game franchises," said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the PC business at NVIDIA. "This killer lineup of SUPER GPUs delivers even more performance for demanding PC gamers and ensures that they're prepared for the coming wave of real-time ray tracing blockbusters."

Ray tracing is the advanced graphics technique used to give movies their ultra-realistic visual effects. Only GeForce RTX GPUs use a hybrid architecture of advanced shading, programmable ray tracing and compute cores to deliver ray traced games in real time. Ray tracing is supported in industry standard APIs, including Microsoft DirectX Raytracing (DXR) and Vulkan, as well as in the game engines used by developers to create games, including Unreal Engine, Unity, Frostbite, id Tech, Northlight, 4A Engine and more.

Last month's Computex and E3 trade events marked a milestone for real-time ray tracing, as a growing number of developers announced that they will be using it to create stunning visuals in their upcoming games. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Control, Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal, Sword and Fairy 7, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood joined the list of major titles that will be using ray tracing. Battlefield V, Metro Exodus Quake II RTX, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Stay in the Light (early access) are already shipping with ray tracing support.

The new SUPER series of RTX GPUs join the existing GeForce RTX 2060 (starting at $349, the first step up to RTX performance) and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (starting at $999, the best gaming GPU on the planet).

GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GPU - Starting at $399, Available July 9
  • Up to 22% faster (average 15%) than RTX 2060
  • 8GB GDDR6 - 2GB more than the RTX 2060
  • Faster than GTX 1080
  • 7+7 TOPs (FP32+INT32) and 57 Tensor TFLOPs
GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GPU - Starting at $499, Available July 9
  • Up to 24% faster (average 16%) than RTX 2070
  • Faster than GTX 1080 Ti

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GPU - Starting at $699, Available July 23
  • Memory speed cranked up to 15.5Gbps
  • Faster than TITAN Xp
  • 11+11 TOPs (FP32+INT32) and 89 Tensor TFLOPs
GeForce RTX GPUs support multiple cutting-edge and advanced gaming features. In addition to being the only GPUs capable of real-time ray tracing, they deliver an order of magnitude increase in AI processing performance with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (up to 130 Tensor TFLOPS of horsepower), and are also the only ones that support advanced features including Mesh Shading and NVIDIA Adaptive Shading (NAS).

NAS also supports Variable Rate Shading, including motion and content adaptive shading for the highest performance and image quality, as well as Foveated Rendering, which puts the detail where the gamer is looking when used in combination with eye-tracking, to deliver next-generation VR experiences.

All NVIDIA GPUs come with GeForce Experience , an application that makes PC gaming more accessible and provides unique, easy-to-use in-game features. GeForce Experience includes NVIDIA Highlights, which automatically captures the best gaming moments; NVIDIA Ansel, which lets gamers take stunning in-game screenshots; and NVIDIA Freestyle, which lets gamers customize their games' appearance with more than 15 post-processing filters and 38 different configurations including settings for image sharpening, color blindness and photo-realism. Gamers can even use the special night mode, which reduces the amount of blue light emitted, so they can get to sleep easier after a night of gaming.

Super Fast. Supernatural Bundle.
For a limited time, starting on July 9, qualifying purchases of a GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, or GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER- based graphics card or desktop PC will include a copy of two award-winning games that support real-time ray tracing, Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. a value of $90.

Where to Buy
The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 SUPER GPUs will be available as custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, from top add-in card providers such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac and as Founders Editions from www.nvidia.com. Look for the GeForce RTX SUPER GPUs in gaming systems built by Acer, Alienware, Dell, HP and Lenovo, as well as by leading system builders worldwide.

What a weird release this time around. We perfectly knew in advance the price, the performance and the fact that NVIDIA is still primarily competing with itself. Hopefully AMD will reconsider their pricing and make NVIDIA lower their prices because otherwise there's little if any progress in terms of GPU compute power - price ratio. Hopefully Ampere on 7nm/RDNA 2.0 in 2020 will be something to be really excited about.

I still really dislike that NVIDIA went with the SUPER naming scheme. 2060S/2070S/2080S or 2065/2075/2085 would have looked like so much more professional but I guess the young will like SUPER more ;-) so NVIDIA marketers might be onto something here.

This idiotic meme which was born on reddit/WCCFTech years ago and still making rounds is still utterly idiotic. Early adopters have the money to buy what they want, they enjoy the performance increases and features they need, they enjoy top products for quite some time, they finance tech companies R&D, and then the rest of us reap the fruits of their dedication. No one's pissed and no one thinks their purchase is inferior.

Blame AMD/Intel. Also, there's this GPU which AMD has been rebranding for three years already. What's its name? Ah, it's RX480 which is now sold as RX590. NVIDIA at the same time does offer superior products under new names.

Not as lame as the other company renaming 580 into 590 and doing a bit of factory overclock.

At least these ones have extra enabled shaders...

Found a factually incorrect statement.

"The ecosystem driving real-time ray tracing is immense -- tens of millions of GPUs " should read "Tens of hundreds of people own RTX cards" Also they have at least a few games to play.

Its going to be the next 3D TV!!!!

Glad I got my 2080 at 699 MSRP so now I am just 50% burned.
Those bought the 2070 / 2080 at 599 / 799 tho..... must be SUPER pissed.

It already is, where's the hype? As soon as Huang stops talking, everybody's going about their business again. It just works anyway :rolleyes:

Hmm i think i will keep my current gtx 1080 ti for the time being. Either nvidia or amd offer a gpu that gives me a reason to upgrade performance vs. Price just yet.

I think i will also be better of getting a new cpu before a new gpu.

Technology advances, those who don´t want to lose money, have to stop buying PC hardware. If instead of being refreshed cards, would price reductions be better? It will be the same ... and price reductions on products with 9 months of market are very likely to happen.

I bought mine GTX 980Ti in July 2015 and 11 months later the GTX 1070 came out, with more performance and much cheaper. It´s progress, and no one should be against progress.

Who can not handle the fact that "tomorrow" might be something better and cheaper on the market, needs to stop buying PC hardware or any kind of tech!

Yeah. Or actually 13% faster (techpowerup) or 9% faster (hardware unboxed).

Sooo relevant in this thread, to reduce BH.

Hopefully AMD will reconsider their pricing
AMD 5700 - faster than 2060 super, but 5% cheaper at $379.
AMD 5700XT - less than 10% slower than 2070, but 10% cheaper at $449.

You do realize there's just 4% between the 2060 Super and the 2070. Yet, in your blind quest to glorify AMD, you manage to squeeze both upcoming Navi cards in that sliver.

If EU prices with taxing didn't suck then such MSRP bargain would be amazing, expecting easily 2070s to follow 560 Euros as a minimum entry model price and 2060s exceeding 450 Euros or smth... at least where I live.

First its $380 and $450 for the cheap blower GPU, cards with real heatsinks will be way more expensive.
Second, Both 2060 and 2070 got replaced by better cards making both 5700 and 5700XT dead on arrival at such prices, both cards were worth $200 and $300 tops, but AMD got greedy too, thanks to that Super cards are overpriced and their new cards are pointless.

I'm not sure if either company is being greedy, isn't there a 25% tariff against gpu's now thanks to Trump's new tariff laws?

True.
But the first-gen RTX 2000 series themselves did not provide such a "more performance and much cheaper" improvements over the last generation in the first place.
That "more performance and much cheaper" improvements starts now with these "super" lineup, first-gen users are sacrificed.

The effects are doubled.
It is "super" but more like "super pissed off" first-gen users.

Waaaaaaaah.

This happens....happened.... and will happen again...from both camps. These complaint when I see it, to me, just shows how unaware one is on how the GPU market works. Kudos to [insert company here] for responding to the market. Next gen isnt ready so you do what you can IMO... why is this a bad thing really? I mean if you play the waiting game, (these cards are pushing being out a year already) you'll never buy as the next gen or an incremental update is ALWAYS around the corner.

Just buy the best you can afford at the time you are ready. There is literally nothing anyone can do.

Yes that's why I said I am only 50% burned.
I looked for 1080ti performance back in October and luckily got a 2080 at the "Real MSRP"
I got what I paid for, 1080ti performance at 1080ti price.

But $599 2070 and $799 2080 ? Nope at that time and now it is "Super Nope" .

2070 Super is $499... $20 more than the FE MSRP.

These are the polished turds (in price to performance) of the lineup. You get 12% performance increase (2560x1440) for 4% price hike (9% performance increase for those who 1080p with this card). I'm not saying it's a good deal, but it's slightly better out of the box to get a Super version over the regular (not matter what AIB card). It beats Radeon VII, is A LOT heaper, and uses less power.

The 5700XT is supposed to perform, in average according to amd, single digits % faster...no idea on price or power use though...

As someone who bought a 2070 9 months ago for 500$, I have nothing to complain about. This is technology progress, process maturity and competition. NVidia is acting as any other corporation would, including AMD.

I have been saying it for a while. NVidia's RTX 20 series prices cannot be judged without taking the silicon size, and accordingly the yields factor, into consideration. An RTX 2070 or 2070 Super with die sizes north of 450mm2 at 500$ versus AMD Navi on 251mm2 at , an 450$, and it's almost guaranteed AMD has the better profit margin.

Now bear in mind NVidia always had the upper hand when it came to extracting better gaming performance from the same die size, also a factor in its superior power efficiency. This generation, they decided to bet on RT/Tensor cores, and whatever your take on the implementation is, it remains the right bet imho. Hybrid rendering technique was approaching a level of maturity where it can be "doable" in triple AAA titles. Their cards were getting really fast enough that an alternative GTX 2080 ti with a 750mm2 die area entirely dedicated to raster would be approaching the point of an overkill for most of games even at 4K resolution, which meant they needed another technology to drive them forward. On the other hand, AMD could have jeopardized their plans if they had a competing product comparable in efficiency and output, available at the right time with the right quantities. But they didn't, which meant NVidia could go ahead with their plans.

It was the perfect plan, at the perfect time, and it can only get better with the next gen 7nm cards.
