NVIDIA Launches the GeForce RTX 2080 Super Graphics Card

NVIDIA today launched the GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card, priced at USD $699. The card replaces the RTX 2080 from this price-point, which will be sold at discounted prices of around $630, while stocks last. The RTX 2080 Super is based on the same 12 nm "TU104" silicon as the original, but is bolstered on three fronts: first, it maxes out the "TU104" by enabling all 3,072 CUDA cores. Second, it comes with increased GPU Boost frequency of 1815 MHz, compared to 1710 MHz of the original; and lastly it comes with the highest-clocked 15.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory solution.

The card ships with 8 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide memory bus, which at 15.5 Gbps works out to roughly 496 GB/s of memory bandwidth, a 11 percent increase over the original RTX 2080. Other specifications of the GeForce RTX 2080 Super include 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 48 RT cores, and 384 Tensor cores. NVIDIA is allowing its board partners to launch custom-design boards that start at the same $699 baseline.

6-7% improvement,come on,this is laughable.
That's what competition does, 2070s got 14% improvement over 2070.If there was any competition 2080S would be tu102 cut to 3500 cuda and would kick 2080 in the butt.

Here's hoping for some cheap 2080's...
Not as if I have the cash to upgrade my graphics card right now anyhow...

Lol, GN slammed Nvidia hard.
yeah 6% performance increase is a bit pathetic... honestly 5700 XT at $399 is the best buy this round. and I don't know why people are still complaining about heat and blower fan, set your fan curve to 65% not 43% which is default and teh temps will be fine... I always have a fan in my room for white noise, so eh. its whatevs

I only read the title but that was telling me enough about the gist of the video :D

And yeah, the guy's right, its like both companies are very keen on remaking the 1080ti these days. Really cool to see yesteryear's performance actually NOT drop in price. I ordered six.

Unfortunately, one of Steve's less serious videos.
People need to put their personal feelings aside and be objective; this is a mid-generation refresh, adjust your expectations accordingly. This replaces the previous product, offering slightly better performance at the same price, how can this be a bad thing?
Many of you guys would behave differently if this was from team red.

Actually no, the navi feedback is also lukewarm at best... You omit that this is a mid-gen refresh of a horrible gen, making it a little bit less horrible. A bit like polishing turds.

When we get 1080TI performance for sub 300 I will be impressed with either camp.

We all want prices to drop faster and for new generations to offer larger improvements, but that's beside the point.
You can get "1080Ti performance" for $500 in the form of RTX 2070 Super, an excellent offer in the current market. Expecting that the previous generation's high-end performance should be costing $300 two years later is a bit optimistic, so I think your expectations may need some calibration.

This release just makes me angry, the "Super" cards should have been there in the first place (as; 2060, 2070 & 2080)!

Yeah the original 2080 FE launched @ $799, this new faster card is now $699 (which some said i was wrong saying it would be).

No wonder the $699 Radeon VII got killed off after 5 months with this coming.

I would've just posted a Yawning Face emoji if TPU had one... so I had to write yawn. Nice that Nvidia has move all the geldings from the bins and now can provide the full-chip!

They hated on the 1080 Ti when it launched too, don't worry about it.

Why? Does yields keep you up at night? :eek:
Yields were not perfect at launch, but have improved since. Product refreshes are normal in-between new architectures, have people forgot this? Both team green and team red do this. I believe Nvidia has done it for every recent architecture except Maxwell?

I guess products like RX 580 makes you even more angry then; by the name of it, it should be a "new generation", but it's not.

Yes, you're right!
GTX 1080 Ti only became popular around when Turing launched and prices on GTX 1080 Ti were dumped.

I think a lot of older PC builders remember a time when with each generation of video cards the performance levels of the previous generation shifted down a price point and only the top cards commanded above $500 MSRP.

I think people have the right to be upset of Nvidia's inflation on price for their cards, especially considering the $700 price point has been GTX 1080ti performance for over two years now. Maybe the next gen we'll see real improvements in price/performance and (maybe) real competition.

The point is AMD are no better, the $699 Radeon VII has already gone EOL in just five months and it is like no one has noticed. Prices are creeping up to with Navi too, jebait all you want, but they want a slice of the pie too.

The RTX 2070 Super is a great card for the money, as for Navi... we have gone from wait for Navi... to wait for custom Navi... to just wait until the drivers are up to speed!

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Not to mention waiting for "big" Navi.
It seems to me that with AMD GPUs we're always waiting for the next big thing, even immediately after the launch. The market may not be ideal right now, but at least one party is making solid products.

We ATI users have been waiting for good drivers for over 20 years.

I hear driver horror stories about Navi still, but I don't know, they can't be that bad...
