NVIDIA today has officially launched the GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card, which will be priced at $699. This card will replace the current RTX 2080, which will now be sold around the $630 mark, while supplies last. The RTX 2080 Super is based on the same 12nm “TU104” silicon as the RTX 2080 (non-Super), but has a few improvements. First it maxes out the “TU104” silicon by enabling all 3072 CUDA cores. Next the GPU Boost frequency has been set at 1815 MHz (compared to 1710 MHz of the original). Finally the memory has been upgraded to 15.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory.
The card has 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide memory bus, which at 15.5 Gbps works out to around 496 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which is an 11% increase over the original. The rest of the specifications include 192 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 48 RT cores, and 384 Tensor cores. NVIDIA is allowing board partners to launch custom-designed cards that start at the same $699 price.
