Given the timing of the teaser, most of us believed that the unveiling would take place at Computex 2019. As it turns out though, the official announcement for these new NVIDIA GeForce RTX Super graphics cards only takes place today.
In a rather interesting move by NVIDIA, the company has revamped its GeForce RTX lineup to mark the arrival of GeForce RTX Super graphics cards. Specifically, the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 have now been replaced by their RTX Super counterparts although NVIDIA somehow decided to let RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super co-exist together.
At the same time, the RTX 2080 Ti card still remained as the top model of the series and also retained the same starting price. On another hand, the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super will be made available at the same price as their predecessors while the RTX 2060 Super is priced USD 50 (about RM 207) more than the RTX 2060 which has also retained its original starting launch price:
Naturally, the RTX Super cards also offer some performance boost over the existing RTX cards. According to NVIDIA, the RTX 2080 Super which features faster memory speed of up to 15.5Gbps brings more performance than RTX 2080 even though both cards have the same general price tag.
For RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 Super, they are apparently up to 24% and 22% faster than their predecessors. NVIDIA also pointed out that the RTX 2060 Super carries more VRAM at 8GB as opposed to 6GB on RTX 2060.
In terms of availability date, the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super will be leading the rollout for the series on 9 July. The RTX 2080 Super on another hand will be released later this month starting from 23 July.
At the time being, we have yet to receive the launch date for the Malaysian market. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more from either NVIDIA or any of its add-in card partners.
