It didn't take long before listing for Nvidia's new Super cards started showing up on retailer websites and thus in the news media, but I'm here to report that the rumours and listings are all true.

The new SUPER line comes with the RTX 2060 SUPER, the RTX 2070 SUPER, and the RTX 2080 SUPER. Don't feel bad if you've spent a fortune on the RTX 2080 Ti though - that card is still the king when it comes to performance.

As for the RX 5700 XT, expect a slightly lower price-tag compared to the RTX 2070 which translates to approximately 40-42K as the RTX 2070 Super is going to sell for INR 43,600.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super uses the same underlying Turing architecture as its predecessor, but it sees plenty of improvements, particularly when it comes to core counts and VRAM.

The RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super be available from July 9 - and for a limited time, buying any of the new Super RTX cards will get you two brand new RTX-supported games: Remedy's new Control, and the co-op stealth shooter Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This product (founders edition) will be priced at 699 Dollars. The base clock is set at 1,650MHz boosting up to 1,815MHz and the card ships with 8GB of GDDR6 running on a 256-bit memory interface and total bandwidth of 496.1GB/s. We don't have a spec for ray tracing cores, but ray tracing performance also gets a bump, as the RTX 2060 Super is capable of pushing out 6 Giga Rays.

The RTX 2070 Super, meanwhile, features a TU104 GPU with 2560 CUDA cores, and has the same 8GB of GDDR6 memory. This should make it more future-proof, and also makes the graphics card more feasible for 1440p gaming. The TDP has increased from 160W on the standard card to 175W, and the card features a single 8-pin power connector.

In a rather interesting move by NVIDIA, the company has revamped its GeForce RTX lineup to mark the arrival of GeForce RTX Super graphics cards.

Moving forward, the RTX 2060 will remain the entry-level card. And, well, we were impressed. We'll have to put it through some more stringent testing before we're able to make a final recommendation, but it's looking good - especially if you have a G-Sync monitor.

According to the green team, the new GeForce RTX SUPER Series has even more cores and higher clocks, bringing you performance that's up to 25% faster than the original RTX 20 Series. It's not prohibitively expensive, and it will likely let you play most games at 1440p without much - if any - loss in detail.

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER slots in at $699 and offers more performance than the RTX 2080 at the same price. What are your thoughts on the new cards?
