What makes you special?
As explained at the announcement, the RTX supercards are basically a souped-up version of the existing NVIDIA product line. They're replacing the faster "Ti" cards we've come to expect from the company (though the 2080 Ti is confusingly still the king of the RTX hill). They are not upgrades for people who jumped on the last year's charts, but rather a reward for those who have been waiting.
RTX 2060 Super
RTX 2070 Super
If you Spend $ 100 more on the faster RTX 2070 Super. It replaces the original model, and you can think of it as a slightly slower version of the RTX 2080. The 2070 Super has 256 more CUDA cores, 16 additional texture units and faster clock speeds (1,605 MHz base and 1,770 MHz boost). All this hardware makes it faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, the latest generation of NVIDIA.
Both cards also do slightly better raytracing performance, although we're still not sure how NVIDIA measures that. The 2060 Super offers 6 giga rays – NVIDIA's name for counting ray tracing speeds – instead of five. The 2070 Super now gets 7 Giga Rays. In practice, this means that both devices can handle realistic reflections, shadows and lighting conditions – the key features of NVIDIA's RTX RTX real-time ray tracing technology – without compromising frame rate.
As we saw in AMD's review On NVIDIA Radeon cards, the hardware of NVIDIA is not surprisingly fast. The $ 399 RTX 2060 Super is on par with the Radeon RX 5700 XT. In some cases, like 3DMark, it's noticeably better, but the NVIDIA GPU is still lagging behind in games like Hitman 2 . This is the kind of gap that can be easily closed by driver updates and game optimization, so I would not have to worry.
The benchmarks are as follows: Both the RTX 2060 Super and the RX 5700 XT The solid $ 399 GPUs deliver the performance you've come to expect from high-end cards a few years ago. You can not go wrong with either option – but of course you only get ray tracing with the RTX 2060. The importance of this feature is up to you and how much you want to make your next future-proof graphics card. At least both cards provide decent raytracing performance. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider the 2060's Super 51 achieved FPS with Ultra Ray tracing settings in 1,440p, while the 2070's Super reached 57 FPS. In my opinion, the slight FPS effect is worthwhile when switching on the function for more realistic shadows and light conditions.
