Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Evaluation

The GeForce RTX 2080 Super includes two new SM systems for a 4% boost in cores, implying this is now a wholly made it possible for TU104 silicon. This is the exact same silicon used by the basic RTX 2080, as well as 2070.

The GDDR6 memory also sees an increase, and now we’re taking a look at a peak information transfer speed of 15.5 Gbps, up from 14 Gbps, an 11% enhancement in memory efficiency. These upgrades have actually increased the TDP by 16% from 215 watts approximately 250 watts.

Nvidia states the RTX 2080 Super provides a robust 4K experience together with real-time ray tracing. For this evaluation we’re going to take a look at the 4K video gaming experience while avoiding over ray tracing in the meantime as our view of the innovation in its present state hasn’t altered given that we covered it numerous months back.

We do prepare to review ray tracing on a roundup piece with the Supergraphics cards quickly, however, so if you have an interest in the innovation that will no doubt deserve a read.


The latest video game in our battery of criteria, F1 2019, sees the 2080 Super provide 75 fps usually making it– drum roll please– 4% faster than the basic 2080 and 17% slower than the 2080 Ti.

Fortunately, the margin is a little bit more notable in Battleground V. Here the 2080 Super used an 8% efficiency uplift over the older 2080 which generally put it on par with the recently ceased Radeon VII.

Rainbow 6 Siege sees a small 3% increase to the typical frame rate over the basic 2080, though we do see a 6% enhancement for the 1% low efficiency. This time the 2080 Super was 15% slower than the Ti design.

Memory bandwidth isn’t that essential in Fortnite, so a little 3% efficiency uplift over the basic 2080 for 72 fps usually at 4K. Still, it was a great smooth and really crisp looking video gaming experience.

Power Usage and Temperature Levels

The RTX 2080 Super takes in 5% more power than the basic 2080, which sounds ideal offered the specifications and what we simply saw performance-wise. This suggests it taken in 6% less power than the Radeon VII, however, 24% more than the brand-new 5700 XT.

We also determined overall system intake from the wall, and here we see the faster 2080 Super increased overall draw by 12% over the basic 2080. What’s intriguing is that the 2080 Super does press system usage greater than that of the Radeon VII.


 NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 Super is whatever we anticipated: A somewhat quicker, however, incline blowing, upgrade over the initial card. The RTX 2080 Super functions 3,072 CUDA cores– the number of parallel processors pushed into the GPU– compared to the initial card’s 2,944.

While it’s good to get a somewhat much faster card, it’s clear that NVIDIA conserved the more considerable upgrades for its brand-new mid-range GPUs.
