NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Founders Edition Review!

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER : Game Bundle, Verdict + Award, Price + Availability

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER – Summary

Coming up with the RTX SUPER cards was easy for NVIDIA. They are basically cut-down versions of existing and faster graphics cards.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) is essentially a GeForce RTX 2070 with 128 CUDA Cores disabled, but higher clock speeds to compensate.

This allows it to be almost as fast as a regular RTX 2070, just a whole lot cheaper! In fact, that was precisely why it replaced the RTX 2070, which was $100 more expensive.

But did it do the job of killing the AMD Radeon RX 5700?

NVIDIA Super RTX vs AMD RX 5700 Comparison!

In the synthetic 3DMark benchmark, the RTX 2060 SUPER is, without a doubt, far superior to the RX 5700. But in the six real world we put them through, here is a summary of the results :

  • F1 2019 : Tie
  • World War Z : Tie
  • The Division 2 : RTX 2060 SUPER is 12% faster on average.
  • Strange Brigade : RTX 2060 SUPER is 7% faster at 1080p and 1440p
  • Metro Exodus : Tie at 1080p, RX 5700 is 8% faster at 1440p, RTX 2060 SUPER is 7% faster at 2160p
  • AOTS : RX 5700 is 3-10% faster

In other words, its real world gaming performance vis-à-vis the AMD Radeon RX 5700 really depends on the game you are playing or testing.

Generally, we would say that GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is equivalent to the Radeon RX 5700.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER – Game Bundle

To fight off the challenge, AMD immediately cut the launch price of the RX 5700 to $349, which makes it $50 cheaper and therefore a better buy than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

However, NVIDIA is bundling TWO GAMES – Wolfenstein : Youngblood and Control – with each RTX SUPER card. They are worth at least $50, so there goes the AMD price advantage.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER – Our Verdict & Award!

You can’t go wrong with either card, but what we feel will tilt many buyers to choose this card over the Radeon RX 5700 would be :

  • The ability to support NVIDIA RTX in certain games for a more realistic gaming experience
  • The ability to use NVIDIA DLSS in certain games to improve image quality with minimal performance penalty
  • It has a much quieter two-fan cooler
  • It uses 10 watt less power
  • It only requires a single 8-pin power connector
  • It has a USB-C port and a dual-linked DVI port

Now, there is nothing “super” about what’s really a cut-down version of the existing GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card. What will really sell the RTX 2060 SUPER is the fact it offers a much better value proposition than the RTX 2070.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is basically a slightly slower GeForce RTX 2070 with a $100 discount. It will deliver 16%-20% better performance than the regular RTX 2060 at just $399.

On that note, we believe it makes our grade for a Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, NVIDIA!
