The $400 GeForce RTX 2060 Super increases memory size from 6 GB to 8 GB and shader count to 2176, which almost lets it achieve performance parity with the RTX 2070 for a much better price. Especially the added memory will help maintain competitiveness against AMD's upcoming Navi offerings.

So pretty much a $400 2070. Not a bad deal overall. Shame about the lacking 1080p performance gains, seeing as that will be the resolution most of its buyers will be gaming at.

Super rtx 2060 x rtx 2060, 18% more money for 13% more performance and 3% more power consumption.

Super rtx 2070 x rtx 2070, 3% more money for 11% more performance and 4% more power consumption.

The winner here hands down is the Super rtx 2070 but since the rtx 2060 has a 256 bit memory and got 13% more performance for just 3% more power. I call it a draw in performance / cost.

I disagree. The card is clearly poised towards 1440p mainstream gamer. For 1080p you don’t need even 1660TI as the regular 1660 will do great and for cheap.

14,3% more expensive for 11% more performance.

What a progress...
The super rtx 2060 would be the best choice if Nvidia had increased its price to $350 or left at $340, $400 was a bad move. Looking at the competition, the rx 5700 at $380 is supposed to be 10% faster than the rtx 2060, which would fall in line x super rtx 2060, the super rtx 2060 will in theory at moment be 3% faster than the rx 5700 and will cost 6% more money.

On the other side, the super rtx 2070 at $499 is supposed to be 10% faster than the rx 5700xt and cost 12% more money.

What I see here is, AMD x Nvidia has never been so close in price performance market segmentation like this in years. It will be your choice to decide what to get, both are pretty much equally priced and matched.

Dayum, looks like a small upgrades from 2060 there, but still it's faster then the original 2060. I can be wrong, but looks like this card can make the rx5700 doa. Unless amd reduced it's price to around the $200 sub range like $299

The original 2060 can already be found for 300-320 dollars, I think this is a much better deal than this super card, especially for 1080p.

Why would it make the RX5700 doa when the RX5700 will perform the same for $20 less?

Typo in the results, should be fixed now
Hasn't the Anno 1800 4k performance affected the performance summary in 4K?

One thing of note on the memory, these newer Micron GDDR6 chips seems to overclock much better than the original.

You still noted Taiwan on page 4, when the chip is clearly marked Korea!

Oh, nevermind. I see you already have a separate article for that.

5700 should actually more than 12% faster than non-super 2060.

AMD slide puts RX 5700 at 9.8% faster than RTX2060 in 10 games they provided results from (at 1440p):

Edit:
6 of these games are in the review here, so based on AMD slide the estimated FPS for RX5700 can be calculated and compared to RTX2060 Super:
Code:
                     RTX2060 RTX2060S   RX5700 vs2060 vs 2060S
AC: Odyssey             44,3     50,1     45,2     2%     -10%
Battlefield 5           85,4     96,4    103,3    21%       7%
Metro Exodus            63,8     73,3     74,0    16%       1%
Shadow of Tomb Raider   70,2     80,1     74,4     6%      -7%
Civilization 6          96,2    109,0    104,9     9%      -4%
Witcher 3               73,4     82,2     76,3     4%      -7%
On average out of these 6 games, the estimate is that RX5700 is 3% slower and 5% cheaper.
@W1zzard, how far off is that? :)

Navi = DOA Expect prices of Navi to drop like a stone in just a few months. My estimation are RX 5700 = 300€ and RX 5700XT = 350€, Radeon VII = 450€ (or discontinued) by the end of the year. That's when I'd be interested in buying them over 2060 and 2070S. But it might just happen that AMD will not lower prices this time around and leave PC market to NVidia all together.

Lisa Su, now's the time to show some love to PC gamers. Otherwise I'll start believing that you'd like to milk your remaining GPU fan base... PS: That's Ngreedia's job, not yours :)

Thank you for your reviews, testing, and analysis. I've appreciated the insights that such reporting gives buyers like me.

I had a question / request for possible GPU test suites. In TechPowerUp's processor reviews, a Machine Learning test is run using Tensorflow ( I believe I saw a Resnet model as the baseline used ) for a comparison of CPU performance. Considering that Tensorflow's primary hardware use is on GPUs, can this same test and additional Compute/scientific workloads be run in the GPU test suite? Gaming is obviously a use, but my primarily use for my GPU these days is in AI / compute tasks and having some testing in this area would be a much appreciated gift. Thank you again.

yeah every NV review from various sites seem to just give negreedia a pass for this these days. I wonder when people will start voting with their wallet? People complain about prices going up but still buy nv products anyway :(

This is definitely something on my list. What apps other than Tensorflow would you use / suggest?

Yeah I also remember how these cards barely made a jump in performance until we saw the 1060 - and only the 6GB at that.

660, 760 and 960 were pretty bad cards, and the 2060Super now joins that fantastic line up as another weak price/perf option. Its just not high end, and its just a bit too expensive.

But its wrong to compare Turing line up by model name. And not just Turing either. We ARE entering the realm of diminishing returns by now, and 2060-70-80 are closer together than ever before.

The numbers are a bit off using the RTX legacy models as the base to compare vs. Super models:

RTX 2060 vs RTX 2060 Super
Performance @ 1440p+13.6%
Performance @ 4K+14.9%
Video RAM+33.3%
Power (avg. game)+12.2%
Price (MSRP)+14.3%

RTX 2070 vs RTX 2070 Super
Performance @ 1440p+13.6%
Performance @ 4K+13.6%
Video RAM0%
Power (avg. game)+8.2%
Price (MSRP)0%
