Alas, NVIDIA is not planning to cut the prices of its existing RTX 20 series Desktop GPUs alongside its Super edition release next week. On the contrary, the company will keep the GeForce RTX 2060 at its current MSRP of US$349. Meanwhile, the RTX 2060 Super will cost an additional US$50 at US$399, with the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super priced at US$499 and US$699 respectively.
The news comes courtesy of Videocardz, which seemingly has received the information irectly from NVIDIA. The company will announce its three Super series GPUs on July 2, with the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 versions going on sale a week later. The RTX 2080 Super will arrive a fortnight later on July 23 though.
All three will come bundled with Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Control. NVIDIA already includes the former with its existing RTX 20 cards, while Control will become available when 505 Games releases it on August 27.
So, that leaves the GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080 out of the running, with NVIDIA putting them out to pasture in favour of their Super successors. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will remain though, with Add-in-board partner (AIB) editions costing US$999. Inexplicably, the Founders Edition will also still cost US$1,199.
