NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 for desktops (also known as RTX 2060S) is a fast mid range graphics card in the GeForce Turing line-up. Compared to the older GeForce RTX 2060 (that still remains in the line-up), the Super version adds 256 shaders and a wider memory bus with more memory (now 8 GB GDDR6). It is still based on the same TU106 chip (now fully utilized) and currently has no mobile counterpart (opposed to the mobile RTX 2060).

Features

NVIDIA manufacturers the TU106 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 2060 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 average RTX 2060S performs slightly better than the old GeForce GTX 1080 and shows a clear improvement over the older RTX 2060. Therefore, the 2060 Super is positioned in the mid range and well suited for most games of 2018 in 1080p and 1440p. Compared to AMD, the RTX 2060 Super is positioned to run against the AMD RX 5700.

Power Requirements

NVIDIA specifies that the RTX 2060 Super should consume a maximum of 175 W and therefore 15 Watt more than the RTX 2060. In our tests the power consumption of the RTX 2060S was slightly lower than the old GTX 1080.
