NVIDIA has just lifted the embargo for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Super graphics card and the first third-party gaming benchmarks have surfaced. As we can see, this brand new version of the RTX2080 is faster than an NVIDIA Titan XP GPU, and is priced at $699.
Going into more details, Guru3D reports that this particular GPU is faster than the Titan XP and closes the gap between the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Ti. The performance difference between the RTX2080 Super and the RTX2080 Ti in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1440p is only 10fps, in Metro Exodus at 1440p it is 9fps and in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided it is 12fps.
Still, it appears that there are some games in which the performance difference between the RTX2080 Super and the RTX2080 Ti is quite high. TechpowerUP reports that the RTX2080Ti is faster by almost 20fps in Ace Combat 7 at 4K, and almost 30fps in F1 2018 at 4K. Furthermore, Far Cry 5 appears to be running faster on the RTX2080Ti by 14fps.
Anandtech reports that Forza Horizon 4 and The Division 2 both run faster on the RTX2080Ti by 8fps, whereas Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is only 6fps faster on the RTX2080Ti. On the other hand, Strange Brigade runs significantly slower on the RTX 2080 Super (almost 20fps difference).
Last but not least, HardwareUnboxed has shared a video review of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Super in which it benchmarks a lot of PC games, so be sure to watch it.
Overall, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080 Super appears to be a great graphics card (when compared to its price/performance ratio). While it is slower than the RTX2080Ti, it’s also significantly cheaper (it is almost offered at half its price). The RTX2080 Ti is usually priced at $1100-$1200, whereas the MSRP for the RTX2080 Super is $699. Moreover, this GPU is also faster than the AMD Radeon VII (which was also launched at $699).
