The third card in NVIDIA’s new SUPER lineup has landed, becoming the new top-end offering of the bunch (but still sitting far enough behind the 2080 Ti). We’re taking a look at NVIDIA’s newest $699 graphics card offering across a range of games at three resolutions: 1080p, 1440p, and ultrawide.
According to UL’s 3DMark, the 2080 SUPER places just ahead of the 2080 FE (surprised?!). As has become a theme, NVIDIA has seriously strong advantages in the DX12-powered Time Spy, which almost all of the green team occupying the top-half of the graph. ]
For the most part, the scaling here is decent enough, and doesn’t detract much from our real-world testing. That is unless you’re only looking at Time Spy. We’re not seeing those same levels of gains with our real-world DX12 tests, but NVIDIA clearly has some good optimizations in place.
Similar to the DX12 Time Spy test in 3DMark, VRMark really loves NVIDIA’s Turing architecture just the same. Once again, the 2080S gains a suitable lead over the 2080, but more and more, we’re seeing that current RTX 2080 owners won’t have to feel buyer’s remorse. The differences between the two models is just not that stark.
We wrap up with Unigine’s Superposition, which largely shows us similar scaling to most of our other tests. The 2080 Ti once again proves that it’s the true king of the lineup. Overall, it’s offered a greaterst performance delta we’ve seen between cards, compared of course to the 2080 SUPER. As for the 2080S vs. 2080 FE, the differences are not too noticeable – but again, this is a “free” performance boost we’re dealing with.
