Zotac's RTX 2070 Super AMP Extreme is priced only $10 higher than the NVIDIA Founders Edition, yet offers a much better triple-slot, triple-fan cooler and also includes an overclock out of the box. During gaming, the card stays quiet, yet manages to beat Founders Edition temperatures at the same time.

EVGA's RTX 2070 Super FTW3 Ultra uses a strong 10-phase VRM. Coupled with the highest power limit of all RTX 2070 Super cards reviewed today, the card ensures you won't hit the power limiter in gaming or overclocking. EVGA also added the important idle-fan-stop feature the Founders Edition lacks.

ASUS put the Super on a fully loaded ROG Strix OC board with DirectCU III cooling that's originally built for GPUs using the RTX 2080. Our testing shows impressive performance gains from the overclock out of the box, and the card runs very quietly, too.

EVGA's RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra comes in at $400, so EVGA isn't asking for a price premium over the Founders Edition. In return, you get a better cooler with fan stop and an overclock out of the box. Just the pricing alone makes this card a strong candidate in the fight against the RX 5700 XT.

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is based on AMD's all-new Navi 10 GPU featuring the RDNA architecture. We thoroughly test the card's gaming performance and look at power, heat, noise, overclocking, and clock frequency stability, too, sometimes with surprising results.

The Radeon RX 5700 is the second Navi card AMD launches today. Priced at $349, it is more affordable than anything NVIDIA has to offer in this segment, yet brings more performance to the table than the RX Vega 64. What really impressed us is the greatly improved power efficiency that's just as good as many NVIDIA Turing cards.

NVIDIA gave the GeForce RTX 20-series a midlife refresh with the new "Super" brand extension in the wake of AMD's upcoming Radeon Navi 7nm GPU. The RTX 2070 is based on the RTX 2080, which means SLI support and more shaders compared to the the original RTX 2070.

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.
