Nvidia RTX 2080 Super Review

Up Close

The RTX 2080 Super continues to utilise the latest generation of Nvidia 'stock' coolers, combining plentiful heat sink fin density and twin fans alongside an attractive silver shroud. Given the poor performance from the blower style of cooler this adjustment was something we were hugely pleased to see when it first appeared and time hasn't diminished its impressiveness. Although we, and we suspect Nvidia themselves, realise that most people choose to purchase a vendor card instead it's nice to know that if you are impatient and do want to own a card that has come straight from the manufacturer that you aren't negatively impacting your performance potential.

Nvidia RTX 2080 Super Review  

The Super cards are identified by the obvious Super branding upon them, but also by the mirror effect on the model name. The RTX 2080 Super has a 8+6 pin PCIe power input and all the outputs that we've come to expect on modern cards with their DisplayPort and HDMI leanings. It's a very attractive card and one of the biggest steps ahead of their Radeon rivals that Nvidia offers in performance ability.

i have seen 5 other reviews from tech youtubers today and all basically said "meh.. who asked for this".


ok it is 2-4 frames more in most games for the same money.

nothing to get excited about.Quote

Oh they finally released something better than a 1080TI that didn't cost $1000. That is incredibly unimpressive. You can keep this crap and stuff it where the green sun doesn't shine.Quote

What is your point? It's for enthusiast only. Only they will want the fastest card. Hence Enthusiast award.

It's not exciting to you because you are not an enthusiast. Not sure what else you expected. What other tech tubers say doesn't mean jack diddly squat, most aren't enthusiast. BUT for enthusiast you may as well get it.Quote

I can get my Aorus 2080 to 14900mhz on the memory. I have heard these can achieve 16000mhz on the memory.

My currently clocks for the Aorus 2080 are 1940mhz core.

I wonder how the higher memory clocks will help with AA and AAF as we as possible higher core clocks ? Quote

Seems the popular thing to do now is to be as negative as possible in reviews and use that to come across as "honest".

Seeing a lot of "oh, Nvidia released another GTX 1080 Ti", which I think is a bad take. Some games love the changes Turing offers, with RAGE 2, Wolfenstein 2, Forza Horizon 4 and Battlefield V acting as prime examples. It is very likely that Turing will age much better than Pascal moving forward (this will no doubt be blamed on Nvidia borking their drivers, as usual).

I still think high-end Turing is too expensive, but at least Nvidia has lowered their pricing and offered more performance at these prices.

Ultimately, Turing can look great or terrible depending on what games you test. That said, it's typically the newest, most technically capable games that offer the largest benefits.Quote
