GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING OC 8G Review

On our test bench today we have the RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC from GIGABYTE. The “Super” line of GPUs was introduced by Nvidia in late June of this year which, coincidently coincided with AMD’s launch of their new Navi-based RX 5700 line of video cards.

AMD’s performance levels were mostly speculation at the time but rumored to be at or near the RTX 2070 levels with a similar price point. Whether or not these rumors were true the RTX Super graphics cards were released intending to slide in between their base model (RTX 2070) and the next tier (RTX 2080). These cards were sporting an increased CUDA core count much like the “Ti” versions of the past but these new Super cards also have increased RT and Tensor core counts. Read More
