NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 Super performance analysis

There's the new third-generation Ryzen CPUs, of course-go read our review, if you haven't already-but today also marks the release of the Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT.

It's quite possible that Nvidia's old, non-Super cards will automatically see supply and demand price cuts of their own, seeing how Nvidia isn't asking for any more money for the new Super version of the 2070, which competes most directly with the 5700 XT.

The 50th Anniversary Edition AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will be now priced at $449, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will be now priced at $399 and AMD Radeon RX 5700 will be now priced at $349.

Nvidia's new Super RTX 2060, 2070, and 2080 perform great at decent prices.


With the company locking horns with NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) in the graphics card market, it appears AMD has found it prudent to sacrifice margins to build market share.

At the new lower prices for the RX 5700, RX 5700 XT, and 50th Anniversary Edition of the RX 5700 XT, if AMD's performance claims prove true, the new Radeon graphics cards could become more cost-effective alternatives to gamers eyeing Nvidia's new Super GPUs. Both the cards are set to launch on 9 July. - Let us know in the comments!

Harnessing the all-new RDNA architecture, support for PCIe 4.0, and 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards raise the bar for 1440p gaming experiences, providing stunning visual fidelity and highly responsive gameplay. Its average game clock will hover in the 1.75 GHz but can boost to 1.9 GHz.

Both these cards are fitted with GDDR6 memory, that means HBM2 is no longer used opposed to what you have been seeing with Vega 56/64, a clever choice as HBM2 memory is hard to assemble onto the die substrate (lot's of yield issues there) and that makes it very expensive, next to being an expensive memory type to purchase.
