Nvidia launched the first two GeForce RTX Super graphics cards at the start of July. HEXUS reviewed the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super on launch date, and we welcomed the extra performance for the money. Interestingly, Nvidia's move was seen as a pre-emptive strike on the AMD Radeon (Navi) RX 5700 Series of graphics cards - but AMD changed its pricing at the last minute, claiming to have 'jebaited' Nvidia.

Meanwhile, Nvidia held back a third new card, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. At the start of July it was only a paper launch and is due to arrive soon, expected to be hard launched on 23rd July (tomorrow). So we known the spec, but we don't know how well it runs games, except in theory - extrapolated from its spec.

In the HEXUS review of the other pair of RTX 2060/2070 Super cards, the HEXUS editor checked through the RTX 2080 Super specs and estimated that it could perform about 10 per cent faster than the standard RTX 2080. This is because it uses the full TU104 die with 3,072 shaders, running at a peak speed of 1,815MHz, while utilising faster GDDR6 memory. It was noted that the extra cores and faster memory comes at a price of 250W board power.

Just ahead of the weekend Twitter user Tum Apisak shared the news that an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super had appeared in the official Final Fantasy XV online benchmarks browser. Just one of the resolution / quality results features this yet to be released GPU - the 2560 x 1440 High Quality test.

In these test results you will see that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super scores 8,736. That is just a smidgeon behind the Titan V (about 1 per cent slower) but a perhaps worthwhile uplift compared with the regular RTX 2080 (about 8 per cent faster). The Super enhancements still leave quite a chasm between the new card and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which scored 9,928, about 14 per cent faster than the RTX 2080 Super.

Whether these differences in performance play out similarly across a wide spectrum of games remains to be seen. At least you won't have that long to wait to see this latest and greatest RTX Super card under test at HEXUS and other tech sites.

So in a game that is heavily optimised for nvidia cards the super version goes faster than the non super version it replaces….

I think I'd be more shocked if it didn't get any gain…


Gigabyte Aorus xtreme 2080, running a clock of 1950, that is the factory boost for this card, a manual OC would probably bring it even higher.
Anyone else think NVidia alread yahd this in the works, but was holding out for another round in the price/performance battle with AMD, and this is in response to the rumors that when properly cooled, the 5700XT can be clocked to have performance similar to the 2080?

Sorry, was there any other reason?

Honestly there is so much variability for the benchmark that it doesn't really reflect any form of accuracy. We have no indication of the system used in the benchmark, nor do we know if they've used stock settings. Case in point the benchmark results you've posted use a factory boost with an overclocked cpu, below is an example using a stock clocked cpu and the founders edition 2080, both of which are at least 4% faster than the 2080 results shown in the graph.
