NVIDIA Super series cards

NVIDIA now launching the RTX 2060 / 2070 / 2080 Super series it seems - cheaper and faster then the original cards and they appear to be discontinuing the 2070 and 2080 already…so kudos if you didn’t bother buying one of those. :man_facepalming:

So are we numbering them as like “2080S”? I mean, “ti” sounded pretty cool but I feel “super” is played out.

Yeah super sounds like stuff from the 90s, from Japan.

I am going to call mine (ordered it today) 2070S, and it seems many people do that as well.

So from a quick glance, it seems there will be no 2080tiS - so the question is 2080ti vs 2080s?

All I could find is some basic info falling in line of the 2080s being between the 2080 and 2080ti (which remains on top).

2080s also was showing 8GB VRAM from Nvidia, I would’ve hoped for more like 12GB.

Looks like the same VRAM as the original cards - but the prices on that video are about $300 down - remains to be seen really.

I’m pretty excited about the 2070S . Same performance as a 1080ti for $500 .

I believe the 2080 Super has higher clocked GDDR6 than the 2080/2070S/2070/2060S.

I know what you mean.

More seriously, hope this will do something for my Nvidia stock…Hangar200 unhappy so far in 2019 (yes, I just referred to myself in the 3rd person).

Nvidia earnings shrank 57% in the latest quarter while sales dropped 31%. That follows a 53% EPS drop in the prior quarter. (Investor’s Business Daily; 8 July 2019)


Consequences of pricing themselves out of their own market.

The average gamer & pc builder isn’t rich. I gather a lot of people may have been doing CPU / Mobo / RAM / SSD upgrades as well as those are likely older components overdue for a replacement and also give more horsepower per dollar. (More frequently I hear people swapping GPUs over anything else.)

Then there was the steep investment for 10 series cards - users are probably going to want to hold onto them since they paid so much right before RTX and didn’t want to repeat the poor choice of investment.


I was first like ’ hey… what !? ’ :slight_smile: And they are already selling those.

Anyway as I am on budget side I found out that there is something like GTX 1660ti available also, interesting.

Yeah current Desktop line up is something like this…not confusing at all.

GTX-1660 Ti
RTX-2060 Super
RTX-2070 Super
RTX-2080 Super
RTX-2080 Ti
RTX Titan

Time to wait for the 2100 series, where they hopefully get back to straightforward numbering.
