NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER In-Depth Review!

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Founders Edition Review!

NVIDIA spiked the AMD Radeon RX 5700 launch party by first teasing, and then launching the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.

A cut-down version of the GeForce RTX 2070, it comes with 2176 stream processors and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, at a $100 lower price point!

How will it match up against the new Radeon RX 5700, and its predecessor, the RTX 2060? Let’s find out!

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 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 2060 SUPER

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 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!

As you can see, it basically comes with just a Quick Start Guide, and a Support Guide. Nothing else.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Hands On!

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) has an NVIDIA TU106 GPU with 2176 stream processors.

This gives it 136 TMUs and 64 ROPS, delivering a peak output of 224 GT/s and 106 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 TU106 GPU is fabricated on the 12 nm process technology, the card only needs 175 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 2060 SUPER Power Requirements

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) is a cut-down version of the GeForce RTX 2070, so it comes to no surprise that it would require 175 watts of power as well.

Like the GeForce RTX 2070, you will need a power supply with an 8-pin PCI Express power cable.

 

RTX 2060 SUPER Display Ports

Surprisingly, it comes with a wide variety of display options. It has two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, that allows it to support 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, it also comes with a HDMI 2.0b port, which supports up to 4K HDR displays at up to 60 Hz… as well as a dual-linked DVI port.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Thermal Output

We recorded the peak exhaust temperatures of those cards, to see how much heat they throw out. Take a look…

Note that these are not the recorded temperatures, but how much hotter the exhaust air is above ambient temperature.

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Noise Level

In case you are wondering how loud the cooler is, we recorded it running Time Spy Extreme benchmark at the 4K resolution.

Listen to how quiet its dual-fan cooler is, even when the fans are spinning at maximum speed!

It is definitely much quieter than the new AMD Radeon RX 5700.

Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.

The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

Wow! In the Time Spy test, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) was 16% faster than the RTX 2060, 13% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and just 6.5% slower than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti!

Let’s see how much of an effect they have on the overall gaming score…

Amazingly, it came within 2% of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, and was 11% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and 14% faster than the RTX 2060.

Time Spy Extreme – 3840 x 2160

At the higher 4K resolution, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) was just 6.2% slower than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

It was now 17% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and 20% faster than the RTX 2060.

And here are their overall gaming scores at 4K…

Again, its performance gap closed against the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in the overall score – it was now just 5% slower.

It was also 14% faster than the Radeon RX 5700, and 17% faster than the RTX 2060.

F1 2019

F1 2019 is a really new racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019.

We tested it on three resolutions at the Ultra High settings :

  • 1080p : 1920 x 1080
  • 1440p : 2560 x 1440
  • 2160p : 3840 x 2160

1080p Gaming Resolution

At 1080p, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) was slightly (less than 2%) faster than the Radeon RX 5700 and Vega 56 graphics cards.

1440p Gaming Resolution

At 1440p, it tied with the Radeon RX 5700, and they were both about 12.5% faster than the RTX 2060, Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards.

2160p Gaming Resolution

When we bumped up the resolution to 4K, it continued to tie with the Radeon RX 5700, and they were both 13% faster than the RTX 2060 and Vega 64 graphics cards.

Note : This game is known to be highly optimised for AMD Radeon cards.

1080p Gaming Resolution

At 1080p, World War Z was CPU-limited even with the new AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor.

So take these results with a big pinch of salt. The top 5 cards – Vega 56, Vega 64, RX 5700, RTX 2060S and GTX 1080 Ti – were producing roughly the same frame rates.

1440p Gaming Resolution

When we kicked up the resolution, it was 21% faster than the RTX 2060, but was now 10% slower than the RX 5700 and Vega 64 graphics cards.

2160p Gaming Resolution

Switching to 4K shook things up again. It now tied with the RX 5700, and they were both 6% slower than the Vega 56, 12% slower than the GTX 1080 Ti, and 16% slower than the Vega 64.

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?

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.

Recommended : The NVIDIA RTX Super vs AMD RX 5700 Comparison!

 

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 :

[adrotate group=”2″]
  • 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!

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.

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.
