NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Founders Edition Review!

NVIDIA spiked the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT launch party by first teasing, and then launching the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER.

A cut-down version of the GeForce RTX 2080, it comes with 2560 stream processors and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, at a lower price point!

Find out how it matches up against the competition, and why we gave it our Reviewer’s Choice Award!

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Primer

Designed to extend NVIDIA’s performance lead against the new AMD Navi-based graphics cards, the NVIDIA RTX SUPER graphics cards are based on cut-down versions of existing GeForce RTX models.

The GeForce RTX 2060 survives to remain the cheapest RTX card you can buy, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti remains the most powerful RTX graphics card that money can buy.

This is how the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER series compares to the older NVIDIA GeForce RTX series.

Unboxing The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) comes in a large cardboard box that doubles as a stand. Let’s take a quick look around, and see what we find inside!

The RTX 2070 SUPER package is rather basic, but for those who are still using monitors with DVI ports, the bundled DP-to-DVI dongle will be very useful.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Hands On!

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has an NVIDIA TU104 GPU with 2560 stream processors.

This gives it 160 TMUs and 64 ROPS, delivering a peak output of 283 GT/s and 113 GP/s, thanks to its higher clock speeds.

Its 8 GB of GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 1750 MHz, giving it a peak memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Even though the TU104 GPU is fabricated on the 12 nm process technology, the card only needs 215 watts of power.

 

NVIDIA Turing

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER series continues to use the NVIDIA Turing microarchitecture, the first to introduce real-time ray tracing capabilities and new Tensor Cores.

It also continues to benefit from NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super-Sampling), which can be used to deliver better than TAA quality with a significantly lower performance penalty, or much better image quality – equivalent to 64X super sampling.

RTX 2070 SUPER Power Requirements

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) is a cut-down version of the GeForce RTX 2080, so it comes to no surprise that it would require 215 watts of power as well.

Like the GeForce RTX 2080, you will need a power supply with both 6-pin and 8-pin PCI Express power cables.

 

RTX 2070 SUPER Display Ports

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has three DisplayPort 1.4 ports, each supporting up to 8K HDR resolution at 60 Hz, or 4K HDR at 120 Hz or more.

There is also a tiny USB-C VirtualLink port, which allows you to connect a VR headset. But guess what – it works like a standard USB-C port, so you can also connect any USB-C device to it!

For compatibility with older displays, there is a HDMI 2.0b port, which supports up to 4K HDR displays at up to 60 Hz… as well as a DP-to-DVI dongle, which allows you to hook it up to older monitors with a DVI port.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 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 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) is essentially a GeForce RTX 2080 with 384 CUDA Cores disabled, but higher clock speeds to compensate.

This allows it to be almost as fast as a regular RTX 2080, just a whole lot cheaper! In fact, that was precisely why it replaced the RTX 2080, which was $200 more expensive.

Sadly, we currently do not have an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT to compare it with, only the Radeon RX 5700.

Needless to say, the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER far outclasses the RX 5700. But until we get our hands on its true rival – the Radeon RX 5700 XT, let’s compare it against its “junior”, the RTX 2060 SUPER in our six real world game benchmarks :

  • F1 2019 : 16% faster at 1080p, 19% faster at 1440p, 21% faster at 2160p
  • World War Z : 7% faster at 1080p, 15% faster at 1440p, 20.5% faster at 2160p
  • The Division 2 : 15.5% faster at 1080p, 20.5% faster at 1440p, 24% faster at 2160p
  • Strange Brigade : 17% faster at 1080p, 16.5% faster at 1440p, 15% faster at 2160p
  • Metro Exodus : 16% faster at 1080p, 17% faster at 1440p and 2160p
  • AOTS : 3% faster at 1080p, 9% faster at 1440p, 15% faster at 2160p

Generally, we would say that GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) is roughly 12-18% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Game Bundle

Like the RTX 2060 SUPER, NVIDIA is bundling TWO GAMES – Wolfenstein : Youngblood and Control – with the RTX 2070 SUPER. They are worth at least $50, so that’s a really nice deal… if you like those games.

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER – Our Verdict + Award

Now, there is nothing “super” about what’s really a cut-down version of the existing GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card.

What will really sell the RTX 2060 SUPER is the fact it offers a much better value proposition than the RTX 2080.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is basically a slightly slower GeForce RTX 2080 with a $200 discount.

That means you get a card that’s fast enough for 4K gaming at 60 fps or better in ⅔ of the games we tested, at what you used to pay for a GeForce RTX 2070!

That’s sure as heck worthy of our Reviewer’s Choice Award! Nice work, NVIDIA!

NVIDIA RTX SUPER Gaming Performance : TLDR Edition

For those of you who are impatient and just want the summary, here are the average frame rates for the six games we tested :

All three cards blazed through the games at 1080p, delivering frame rates far in excess of 60 fps.

In 1440p, all three cards delivered frame rates far in excess of 60 fps in all games, except for Metro Exodus where only RTX 2080 SUPER posted higher frame rates, and the RTX 2070 SUPER came close to 60 fps.

The RTX 2060 SUPER is generally too slow for 4K gaming, delivering 60 fps or better only in two games – Ashes of the Singularity and Strange Brigade.

The RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) and the RTX 2080 SUPER (US | UK | MY) are better bets for 4K gaming, delivering better than 60 fps in ⅔ of the games we tested.

For a closer look at their performance in those six games, head over to the next page.

 

NVIDIA RTX SUPER : Price / Performance Value

Let’s do a little analysis on the NVIDIA RTX SUPER price / performance value…

RTX 2080 SUPER RTX 2070 SUPER RTX 2060 SUPER
Launch Price $699 $499 $399
6 Game Average Frame Rate 111 fps 99.3 fps 86.3 fps
$ Per fps $6.297 $5.025 $4.623

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has the best price-performance value of the three cards.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) was very good too, coming in just 8.7% lower in price / performance value.

With a price tag that’s $200-$300 higher, the RTX 2080 SUPER (US | UK | MY) had the lowest price / performance value – 25% lower than the RTX 2070 SUPER, and 36% lower than the RTX 2060 SUPER.

 

NVIDIA RTX SUPER : Power Efficiency

Now, let’s compare their power efficiency in performance per watt.

Since we cannot test their actual power consumption, we will have to rely on their rated TGP (Total Graphics Power) specifications.

RTX 2080 SUPER RTX 2070 SUPER RTX 2060 SUPER
Total Graphics Power (TGP) 250 watts 215 watts 175 watts
6 Game Average Frame Rate 111 fps 99.3 fps 86.3 fps
Watt Per fps 2.25 2.17 2.03

Not surprisingly, the RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) offered the best power efficiency.

The RTX 2070 SUPER (US | UK | MY) had 7% lower power efficiency, while the RTX 2080 SUPER (US | UK | MY) had 11% lower power efficiency.

NVIDIA RTX SUPER Gaming Performance Examined!

Now, let’s examine the gaming performance of the three NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER cards in six games :

  • F1 2019
  • World War Z
  • Metro Exodus
  • The Division 2
  • Strange Brigade
  • Ashes of the Singularity

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a really new racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested the cards at the Ultra High settings.

All three cards delivered frame rates far in excess of 60 fps at 1080p and 1440p.

However, only the RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER were fast enough to deliver average frame rates of 60 fps or better at 4K (2160p).

World War Z

Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively new third-person shooter game, released in April 2019. We tested the cards using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings.

World War Z was an “easy” game – all three cards had no problem delivering frame rates far in excess of 60 fps, even at 4K / 2160p!

The Division 2

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a new third-person shooter game released in March 2019. We tested the cards using the Extreme settings.

All three cards had no problem handling 1080p, but RTX 2060 SUPER delivered just over 60 fps at 1440p. The RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER are better options at 1440p.

However, all three cards could not come close to 60 fps at 2160p. The RTX 2080 SUPER, arguably, could probably crack 60 fps at “less extreme” settings on 4K.

Strange Brigade

Strange Brigade is also a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested the cards using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings.

All three cards had no problem handling 1080p or 1440p. The RTX 2060 SUPER even managed to deliver just over 60 fps at 4K!

However, the RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER are better options at 4K, delivering frame rates far in excess of 60 fps.

Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is a relatively new first-person shooter game, released in February 2019. We tested the cards using the Ultra settings.

This is a tough game, where the RTX 2060 SUPER barely delivered over 60 fps at 1080p.

The RTX 2070 SUPER only came close to 60 fps at 1440p, but should do much better with “less ultra” settings.

The RTX 2080 SUPER is definitely the best card for Metro Exodus, but even it could only deliver 40 fps at 4K using the Ultra settings!

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a 2016 game that supports multi-core processing and asynchronous compute. We tested the cards using the DirectX 12 API at the Extreme settings :

AotS is very CPU-limited, even using the new AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor, so all three cards were stuck at around 90 fps at 1080p.

In any case, all three cards delivered average frame rates far in excess of 60 fps at 1080p and 1440p.

At 4K, the RTX 2060 SUPER barely delivered over 60 fps. It would be much better to use the RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER at 4K.

How Everyone Got The RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count Wrong!

In all the excitement over the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER series, everyone posted the wrong TMU count for the RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card.

This gave the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER an unfair performance lead over the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT on paper.

Let’s find out how everyone got the RTX 2070 SUPER’s TMU count so wrong…

 

How Everyone Got The RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count Wrong!

Even before the RTX SUPER series was launched, many websites got its TMU count wrong.

That was because they based their information on, of all things, the leaked but official RTX 2070 SUPER Reviewer’s Guide.

On Page 9 of the official GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Reviewer’s Guide is this table, comparing the specifications of the RTX 2070 SUPER against the “regular” RTX 2070 and the GeForce GTX 1070.

As you can see, it wrongly lists the RTX 2070 SUPER with 184 Texture Units and a corresponding texel fill rate of 325.7 Gigatexels/sec.

No wonder everyone got their RTX 2070 SUPER TMU specifications wrong.

This is important, because the TMU count of 184 gives the RTX 2070 SUPER a ridiculous and completely unfair performance advantage over the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT on paper.

Gamers who don’t bother to wait for benchmark results will probably just assume the RTX 2070 SUPER is definitely much faster than the RX 5700 XT.

Well, they may end up correct but we wouldn’t know until the RX 5700 XT is released on the 7 July…

The Effect Of The Wrong RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count

This singular mistake makes a big difference, at least on paper, when potential buyers compare the specifications of the RTX 2070 SUPER against the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT.

Specifications RTX
2070
SUPER
(Wrong)
RX 5700 XT RTX
2070
SUPER
(Correct)
Base Clock 1605 MHz 1605 MHz 1605 MHz
Boost Clock 1770 MHz 1905 MHz 1770 MHz
Stream Processors 2560 2560 2560
TMUs 184 160 160
Min. Texture Fill Rate 295.3 GT/s 256.8 GT/s 256.8 GT/s
Max. Texture Fill Rate 325.7 GT/s 304.8 GT/s 283.2 GT/s
ROPs 64 64 64
Min. Pixel Fill Rate 102.7 GP/s 102.7 GP/s 102.7 GP/s
Max. Pixel Fill Rate 113.3 GP/s 121.9 GP/s 113.3 GP/s

With the incorrect TMU count of 184, the RTX 2070 SUPER has a 10.6% advantage in texture fill rate over the Radeon RX 5700 XT.

But with the correct TMU count, the Radeon RX 5700 XT ends up with the same minimum texture and pixel fill rates as the RTX 2070 SUPER, with 7.6% higher peak texture and pixel fill rates!

Calculating The Correct RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count

We were suspicious about the 184 TMU count for the RTX 2070 SUPER from the start. Even when everyone else posted that TMU count in their leak coverage, we stuck with 160 TMUs.

Why? Because we knew back then, that the RTX 2070 SUPER would use a TU104 GPU with 2560 CUDA Cores.

A quick refresher course on the TU104 GPU that the RTX 2070 SUPER uses :

  • It has 6 Graphics Processing Clusters (GPC).
  • Each GPC has 4 Texture Processing Clusters (TPC).
  • Each TPC has 2 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs).
  • Each SM has 64 CUDA Cores, and 4 Texture Units

Working backwards, that means it would have 40 Streaming Multiprocessors and 20 Texture Processing Clusters… and 160 Texture Units.

Confirming The Correct RTX 2070 SUPER TMU Count

First, we dug deeper into the RTX 2070 SUPER Reviewer’s Guide and found on Page 13…

A separate set of RTX 2070 SUPER specifications, with the CORRECT TMU specifications!

But to be sure, we asked NVIDIA to confirm the specifications, and we received this reply :

The correct numbers are 160 TMUs, which translates to 283.2 Gigatexels per second.

So there you have it, guys… the correct RTX 2070 SUPER TMU count is 160, not 184.
