NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super (Desktop) vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Desktop)

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super (Desktop)

► remove

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super (RTX 2070S) is a high-end desktop graphics card and refresh of the 2018 RTX 2070. The card is now behind the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 Super (upcoming) as the third-fastest graphics card in the Nvidia lineup of consumer cards. It uses the big TU104 chip instead of the TU106 of the RTX 2070 and offers more cores (2,560 versus 2,304).

Features

NVIDIA manufactures the TU104 chip on a 12 nm FinFET process and includes features like Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Real-Time Ray Tracing (RTRT), which should combine to create more realistic lighting effects than older GPUs based on the company's Pascal architecture can (if the games supports it). The RTX 2070S is DisplayPort 1.4 ready, while there is also support for HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) and H.265 video en/decoding (PlayReady 3.0).

Performance

The performance of the RTX 2070S is slightly better than the old GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. With the new ray-tracing and tensor cores, the RTX 2070S is clearly the better choice. The RTX 2070 Super is positioned in the high-end segment and therefore most current games should run fluently in 4k and high detail settings (but without ray tracing). Compared to AMD offerings, the RTX 2070 Super is aimed against the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT (Navi).

Power Requirements

NVIDIA estimates that the RTX 2070S should consume a maximum of 215 W (RTX 2070 - 175 Watt). In our gaming tests, the RTX 2070 Super was more power-efficient than the old GeForce GTX 1080 Ti (339 versus 296 Watt for the test system running The Witcher 3).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (Desktop)

► remove

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 sits behind the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti as the second fastest desktop GPU in NVIDIA's current Turing line-up. The RTX 2080 has 2,944 shader units, 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM and a 256-bit interface that runs at 14 GHz and delivers up to 448 GB/s.

Features

NVIDIA manufacturers the TU104 chip on a 12 nm FinFET process and includes features like Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Real-Time Ray Tracing (RTRT), which should combine to create more realistic lighting effects than older GPUs based on the company's Pascal architecture (if the games supports it). The RTX 2080 is also DisplayPort 1.4 ready, while there is also support for HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) and H.265 video en/decoding (PlayReady 3.0).

Performance

The RTX 2080 should perform on par with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but it will outclass the latter in games that support DLSS and RTRT. The RTX 2080 is at the pinnacle of consumer desktop GPUs and can play most triple-A games released in 2018 at high graphics in 4K.

Power Requirements

NVIDIA estimates that the RTX 2080 should consume a maximum of 215 W, which is 35 W higher than the company rates its GeForce GTX 1080.
