Rumored Nvidia Super graphics card prices should lead to super price drops for current GeForce RTX 20-series cards

Nvidia’s Super range of graphics cards could soon be upon us and there has been some speculation about how much the new products could cost. Along with that, there is a rumor that the current GeForce RTX 20-series cards will receive price cuts to help make them more competitive in an increasingly crowded marketplace.

We already reported on the expected specifications of Nvidia’s upcoming series of Super cards and now some prices have been shared on the Internet that seem to fall in the expected ballpark for premium graphics solutions. The prices offered, in comparison with the launch MSRPs of the trail-blazing ray-tracing RTX cards, are as follows:

  • GeForce RTX 2060 Super: US$349 – US$399 (GeForce RTX 2060: US$349)
  • GeForce RTX 2070 Super: US$549 (GeForce RTX 2070: US$499)
  • GeForce RTX 2080 Super: US$699 (GeForce RTX 2080: US$699)

It seems the potential launch prices for the Super series are nothing out of the extraordinary for the Nvidia premium graphics cards. However, it wouldn’t make sense to keep the “old” GeForce RTX cards at similar prices as buyers would simply select the higher-specced Super cards. So, unsurprisingly, some price cuts are expected:

It can be opined that this is an odd strategy by Nvidia, to flood this end of the graphics card market with even more products that seem to only offer incremental increases to their non-Super brethren. It could even be argued that the green team should focus on the entry-level/midrange markets more, and perhaps even try to break into the console component market that AMD is currently dominating.
