RX 5950 XT, RX 5950, and RX 5800 XT: New AMD Radeon SKUs Reach Regulators

Confirmation of four new Radeon RX 5000-series SKUs came to light as AIB partner AFOX pushed them to regulators at the Eurasian Economic Commission. EEC filings have been a reliable early-sign of upcoming PC hardware. All thee new SKUs are positioned above the Radeon RX 5700 XT launched last year. These include the Radeon RX 5800 XT, the RX 5900 XT, the RX 5950, and the RX 5950 XT. Going by AMD's convention of two SKUs per resolution serving up to differentiated experiences, the RX 5800 XT could be a step up from the RX 5700 XT in offering 1440p high frame-rate AAA performance. This could possibly put it in direct competition with the GeForce RTX 2070 Super. AMD took a similar 2-pronged approach to 1080p, with the RX 5500 XT serving up 1080p at up to 60 fps, while the RX 5600 XT topping it up with a 40-50 percent performance uplift.

The Radeon RX 5950-series is completely new. This could very well be a new large "Navi" silicon, since dual-GPU is dead. Just as AMD carved out the RX 5700 XT, the RX 5700, and the RX 5600 XT, it could carve out the three new SKUs from this silicon. AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su already confirmed that her company is working to upscale the RX 5000-series "Navi" family. The RX 5900-series could be competition for the likes of the RTX 2080 or even RTX 2080 Super. The RX 5950-series could target premium 4K gaming (RTX 2080 Ti). It remains to be seen if the three new SKUs are based on the existing RDNA architecture or the new RDNA2 architecture designed for 7 nm EUV, featuring variable-rate shading.

GIGABYTE Readies EAGLE Graphics Card Brand Extension, includes RX 5600 XT

GIGABYTE is readying a new brand-extension for its graphics cards lineup, called EAGLE. It will join the company's existing brand extensions, namely Aorus Gaming and WindForce series. Regulatory filings by GIGABYTE with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) sees the company launching as many as 30 individual SKUs, spanning nearly every current-generation GPU. On the AMD front, we have cards based on the RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5500 XT, and the yet-unannounced RX 5600 XT, with its 6 GB of memory.

The NVIDIA lineup includes all its GTX 16-series and RTX 20-series SKUs, with the exception of the RTX 2080 Ti. The inclusion of RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, SKUs believed to have been passively retired with the advent of the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super, is interesting. It shows that NVIDIA hasn't given up on the two. The RTX 2070's second-coming in particular, was reportedly triggered by supply shortages in the RX 5700 series, giving NVIDIA room to sell something around the $400-450 mark, bang in the middle of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super.

NVIDIA Partners Order Fresh GeForce RTX 2070 Chips as they Expect RX 5700 XT Inventories to Slump

NVIDIA's add-in card partners are ordering fresh stocks of GeForce RTX 2070 graphics chips even as the performance-segment of the GPU market has changed with AMD's introduction of its Radeon RX 5700 series "Navi," according to a Gamers Nexus report citing sources among NVIDIA partners. NVIDIA partners are expecting a slump in AMD's RX 5700 series graphics card inventories, particularly that of the RX 5700 XT, to create a price-point at which to sell the RTX 2070. NVIDIA partners expect RX 5700 XT inventories to run slim as supply of the 7 nm "Navi 10" chips from foundry-partner TSMC may not satiate the SKU's reportedly high demand.

NVIDIA's current product stack has the original RTX 2060 at $349, the RTX 2060 Super at $399, and the RTX 2070 Super at $499. The RTX 2070, which is outperformed by the $399 Radeon RX 5700 XT, was practically phased out from NVIDIA's product-stack as it was succeeded by the RTX 2070 Super at its $499 price-point. With the RTX 2070 making a comeback, it would be interesting to see what its price-point will be. There is a gap between the $399 RTX 2060 Super, and the $499 RTX 2070 Super, although the performance gap between the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 is a paltry 4 percent, which is easily closed by moderately overclocking the RTX 2060 Super. As of this writing, both pricing and availability of the RX 5700 XT appear normal.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare System Requirements Revealed

Ahead of its October 25 release, NVIDIA got hold of the system requirements for "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare," the month's hottest AAA release. NVIDIA is an extensive technical partner for the game's development, and the game is expected to feature NVIDIA RTX real-time ray-tracing at launch, along with support for NVIDIA Highlights and Ansel, although there's no mention of DLSS from NVIDIA. The game supports Windows 7, and isn't restricted to Windows 10. It calls for a whopping 175 GB of disk space. The bare minimum system requirements for a 1080p experience includes 8 GB of RAM, Intel Core i3-4130 or AMD FX-6300 processors, and GeForce GTX 670 or current-gen GTX 1650 graphics.

The recommended system requirements for 1080p 60 FPS without ray-tracing are Core i5-2500K or Ryzen 5 1600X processor, 12 GB of RAM, and either GTX 970 or current-gen GTX 1660 graphics. For 1080p 60 FPS with ray-tracing, the requirements climb up to RTX 2060 graphics. At the same resolution with 144 FPS frame-rate, "High" preset, and "competitive" performance that won't let you down in an online MP situation, you'll need at least a GeForce RTX 2070 Super, 16 GB of system RAM, and either Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 7 1800X processor. For 4K 60 FPS with ray-tracing, a high-end experience, you'll need at least an RTX 2080 Super graphics card, and either Core i7-9700K or Ryzen 7 2700X processor. The NVIDIA article doesn't mention AMD Radeon graphics cards. In the absence of ray-tracing, you can probably use an RX 590 for 1080p 60 FPS, RX 5700 for 1080p 144 FPS or 1440p 60 FPS.

NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super Chips Come in Three Variants Each. Flashing Possible?

While working on GPU-Z support for NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX Super cards, I noticed something curious. Each of the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super is listed with three independent device IDs in the driver: 1F06, 1F42, 1F47 for the former and 1E84, 1EC2, 1EC7 for the latter. GeForce RTX 2080 Super on the other hand, like nearly every other NVIDIA SKU, uses only a single device ID (1E81). The PCI device ID uniquely identifies every GPU model, so the OS and driver can figure out what kind of device it is, what driver to use, and how to talk to it. I reached out to NVIDIA, for clarification, and never heard back from them besides an "interesting, I'll check internally" comment.

With no official word, I took a closer look at the actual values and remembered our NVIDIA segregates Turing GPUs article, that was part of the launch coverage for the initial GeForce RTX unveil. In that article, we revealed that NVIDIA is creating two models for each GPU, that are identical in every regard, except for name and price. If board partners want to build a factory-overclocked card, they have to buy the -A variant of the GPU, because only that is allowed to be used with an out of the box overclock. Manual overclocking by the users works exactly the same on both units.

NVIDIA Releases Studio Driver 431.70 WHQL

NVIDIA today updated its GeForce Studio Driver to version 431.70 WHQL. NVIDIA had in March 2019 forked its client-segment GPU drivers to two, the regular GeForce "Game Ready" drivers targeting gamers and regular desktop users; and the special Studio Drivers targeting content creators who don't necessarily own expensive Quadro hardware but could do with certain professional features and application support. These drivers still won't turn your GeForce to Quadro, and won't give GeForce "certifications" for major 3D and content-creation applications, but will ensure compatibility by making the most of existing hardware features of GeForce or TITAN GPUs.

Version 431.70 adds support for GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2060 SUPER GPUs; expands the list of G-SYNC compatible monitors; and adds support for new content creation applications, namely Magix VEGAS Pro v17, Autodesk Arnold, Allegorithmic Substance Painter 2019.2, Blender 2.80, Cinema 4D R21, and Otoy Octane Render 2019.2. The drivers also enable 30-bit color (not to be confused with 10-bit color) on GeForce and TITAN GPUs. This needed Quadro GPUs until now. Grab the driver from the link below.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 431.36 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA today released GeForce 431.36 WHQL software, which adds support for the new GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards that went on sale from 9th July. The drivers also improve optimization for "Tom Clancy's The Division 2," "Strange Brigade," and "Metro Exodus." The drivers add SLI support for "F1 2019." The drivers address the issue of performance counts appearing over the Windows 10 1903 Start menu (since the Start menu is now its own 3D-accelerated process). A "Code 43" error that appears on Windows 1903 machines with Intel "Sandy Bridge" processors has also been fixed. Another critical bug where Windows 1903 doesn't write a crash-dump on BSOD has been fixed.

Among the game-specific fixes are screen flickering noticed in "Grand Theft Auto V" with MSAA enabled; a game-crash experienced in "Forza 4" when driving through tunnels; "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" may experience a TDR crash on GeForce "Pascal" GPU; and staying with this title, its internal benchmark may quit when ray-tracing is enabled. Grab the driver from the link below.

AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

NVIDIA attempted to torpedo the Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" series graphics card launch with the introduction of its $499 GeForce RTX 2070 Super and $399 RTX 2060 Super. AMD claimed that its upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT outperformed the original RTX 2070, while its smaller sibling, the RX 5700 outperforms the original RTX 2060. In its E3-2019 reveal, AMD disclosed launch prices of the RX 5700 XT and the RX 5700 to be USD $449 and $379, respectively. The RTX Super launch jeopardizes this, and so, according to VideoCardz, AMD is revising its launch prices.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT now reportedly launches at just $399, while the Radeon RX 5700 is priced at $349. The RX 5700 XT is claimed to beat the original RTX 2070, while the $399 RTX 2060 Super is slower than the RTX 2070. On the other hand, the RX 5700, which was claimed to beat the $349 original RTX 2060, is now price-matched with it, unless NVIDIA comes up with price-cuts. Older reports suggested that with the advent of the RTX Super series, NVIDIA would retire the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070, after the market digests inventories left in the channel. AMD's latest move is sure to disturb that digestion.

Update Jul 6th: This has been confirmed officially by AMD here.

GeForce RTX 2070 Super Beats Radeon 5700 XT in FFXV Benchmark

In a recent submission to the Final Fantasy XV Benchmark database, upcoming new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super GPU has been benchmarked. The new submission is coming just a few days before the Super series officially launches. On benchmark's tests, RTX 2070 Super has scored 7479 points at 1440p resolution on high quality settings, which is almost 12% increase from previous generation 2070, which scored 6679. The performance seem to be attributed to increased CUDA core count, which is rumored to increase about 11%, making the result seem pretty realistic.

When compared to AMD's upcoming Radeon 5700 XT, which also got submitted to FFXV Benchmark database and has scored 5575 at same settings, the RTX 2070 Super is about 34% faster.

EVGA RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super Pictured

Ahead of formal launch tomorrow (2nd July), followed by a 9th July market availability, pictures of EVGA's custom-design GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards were leaked to the web by an early listing on Amazon. The RTX 2060 Super XC Ultra is a triple-slot monstrosity, which uses a thicker heatsink ventilated by a pair of spinners; while the RTX 2070 Super XC is the base variant of an entire stack of cards based on this chip. The boxes have clear "Super" branding in the SKU detail corners. This branding is also found on metal decals on the cooler shrouds, and printed on the back-plates.

The listing also confirms that the RTX 2060 Super features 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. This move was necessitated by AMD equipping its Radeon RX 5700 graphics card with 8 GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory. The RTX 2060 Super makes full use of the 256-bit memory bus width of the "TU106" silicon. The RTX 2070 Super, on the other hand, is based on the larger "TU104" chip, and has 2,560 of the 3,072 CUDA cores present on the chip enabled. This SKU is designed to compete with the RX 5700 XT. We'll find pictures of custom-design RTX 2080 Super as we inch closer to its July 23 market availability date.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Super Market Availability Revealed

NVIDIA is giving its GeForce RTX 20-series product family a mid-cycle refresh with the RTX 20 Super-series, which sees performance uplifts across price-points, in the wake of AMD's Radeon RX 5000 "Navi" series. The company is expected to formally announce the series tomorrow (2nd July, 2019), but VideoCardz has learned the dates more relevant to you: market availability. According to them, while all three Super SKUs will be announced on July 2nd, namely the RTX 2060 Super, the RTX 2070 Super, and the RTX 2080 Super; market availability will vary.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super and the GeForce RTX 2070 Super will be available to purchase on the 9th of July, 2019. The high-end GeForce RTX 2080 Super will be available from the 23rd of July. The RTX 2060 Super will launch at USD $399, which is on-par with the Radeon RX 5700, and $50 higher than the original RTX 2060. The RTX 2070 Super will displace the original RTX 2070 at USD $499, which could push its lower. The RTX 2080 Super will launch at USD $699, displacing the original RTX 2080. VideoCardz speculates that the original RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 (non-Ti) will attain EOL status after tomorrow's announcement. The remaining RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 units in the market will be sold at discounted prices.

NVIDIA RTX SUPER Lineup Detailed, Pricing Outed

NVIDIA has officially confirmed pricing and SKU availability for its refreshed Turing lineup featuring the SUPER graphics cards we've been talking about for ages now. Primed as a way to steal AMD's Navi release thunder, the new SUPER lineup means previously-released NVIDIA gppahics cards have now hit an EOL-status as soon as their souped-up, SUPER versions are available, come July 2nd.

The RTX 2060 and RTX 2080 Ti will live on, for now, as the cheapest and most powerful entries unto the world of hardware-based raytracing acceleration, respectively. The RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, however, will be superseded by the corresponding 2070 SUPER and 2080 SUPER offerings, with an additional RTX 2060 SUPER being offered so as to compete with AMD's RX 5700 ($399 for NVIDIA's new RTX 2060 SUPER vs $379 for the AMD RX 5700, which is sandwiched in the low-end by the RTX 2060 at $349).

NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER Pictured for the First Time

VideoCardz have managed to snag a photo of the upcoming NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER. Set in a new, Turing refresh series of graphics cards that will basically increase execution units and RT capabilities across the RTX 2000 series lineup, the RTX 2070 SUPER is based on the TU104 silicon, which powers the current RTX 2080 graphics card (revision TU104-410-A1). With 2560 shading units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs, 320 Tensor cores and 40 RT cores across 40 SMs, this card is meant to bring the battle to AMD's upcoming Navi graphics cards, keeping NVIDIA's momentum in the consumer market.

The card is basically an NVIDIA reference RTX 2070 with a green SUPER logo, with the additional differentiation of the black part of the cooler shroud now being silver-colored. According to leaked information, it's expected that NDAs will be lifted come the series launch on July 2nd.

NVIDIA's SUPER Tease Rumored to Translate Into an Entire Lineup Shift Upwards for Turing

NVIDIA's SUPER teaser hasn't crystallized into something physical as of now, but we know it's coming - NVIDIA themselves saw to it that our (singularly) collective minds would be buzzing about what that teaser meant, looking to steal some thunder from AMD's E3 showing. Now, that teaser seems to be coalescing into something amongst the industry: an entire lineup upgrade for Turing products, with NVIDIA pulling their chips up one rung of the performance chair across their entire lineup.

Apparently, NVIDIA will be looking to increase performance across the board, by shuffling their chips in a downward manner whilst keeping the current pricing structure. This means that NVIDIA's TU106 chip, which powered their RTX 2070 graphics card, will now be powering the RTX 2060 SUPER (with a reported core count of 2176 CUDA cores). The TU104 chip, which power the current RTX 2080, will in the meantime be powering the SUPER version of the RTX 2070 (a reported 2560 CUDA cores are expected to be onboard), and the TU102 chip which powered their top-of-the-line RTX 2080 Ti will be brought down to the RTX 2080 SUPER (specs place this at 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM and 3072 CUDA cores). This carves the way for an even more powerful SKU in the RTX 2080 Ti SUPER, which should be launched at a later date. Salty waters say the RTX 2080 Ti SUPER will feature and unlocked chip which could be allowed to convert up to 300 W into graphics horsepower, so that's something to keep an eye - and a power meter on - for sure. Less defined talks suggest that NVIDIA will be introducing an RTX 2070 Ti SUPER equivalent with a new chip as well.
