NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super Complete review with benchmarks- This was my first GPU while the RTX 2000 series came out. The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level for 1080P. I had a Core i9 9900K with 16GB of 3200MHz ram, and I had the best gaming and editing experience. Now with new latest updates, this GPU got even more faster and efficient than when it was launched. So in today’s article, I will give you my honest review of this GPU. So stay tuned.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super
Name and Architecture:
|Model:||GeForce RTX 2060 Super|
|Fabrication process:||12 nm|
|Bus interface:||PCI-E 3.0 x 16|
|Launch date:||July 2019|
|Price at launch:||$399|
when this GPU was launched the best thing was the price of this GPU. I remember when I was building a computer for myself. My plan was to buy the GTX 1080Ti. but when I check the internet there were new posts about the RTX 2000 series. Then a friend of mine told me to wait until the RTX 2000 came out. So when this gpu was launched I got my hands on the RTX 2060 Super, and I was surprised because of its performance. This gpu has 10.8 billion transistors and is based on Turing architecture. The gaming experience was so smooth, I had a 22-inch 1080P monitor by that time and I had a very good experience with this GPU.
|Base clock:||1470 MHz|
|Boost clock:||1650 MHz|
I had no problems with this GPU when I was gaming on this GPU. It has some of the most amazing speeds of the base clock and boost clock. The base frequency of this GPU is 1470 MHz, which is faster than most new GPUs. The Boost Clock is also faster than other GPUs at this point which is 1650 MHz. The base frequency is going to help in mostly GPU-bound games like Call of Duty Warzone. The boost clock is also helping in demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed, God of war, and the newly launched Eden Ring. The more the frequency is the faster the speed of the GPU will be.
|Memory size:||8 GB|
|Memory clock:||1750 MHz|
|Memory clock (effective):||14000 MHz|
|Memory interface width:||256-bit|
|Memory bandwidth:||448 GB/s|
|L2 cache:||4 MB|
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 1750GHz. Which is really fast compared to its predecessors. The memory clock of this GPU is 14 GHz, which is amazingly fast, and don’t forget this GPU is also power efficient. This GPU interface is 256-Bit which is not faster than the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060. The memory bandwidth is a lot faster than its predecessor also. Like it’s faster than Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. The memory bandwidth is freaking 448 GB/s which is awesome. The cache memories are also good in terms of performance. The L2 cache memory is 4MB which is impressive. The memory clock of this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super is 14 GHz which will help in boosting game performance.
Cores & Texture:
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super has 2176 CUDA cores. The Cuda cores are more than Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. There are 64 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and scaling the image. There are also 272 Tensor Cores which will help in Ray tracing. There are also 32 RT cores. There are 136 texture units. The Texture units help a lot when it comes to gaming textures like cars, bushes, trees, etc. with new continuous updates in drivers this GPU gets faster and more efficient in updates from Nvidia.
|Maximum power draw:||175 W|
This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 175W compared to its predecessor’s 200W. This GPU is faster than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and power efficient too. Because this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super, power consumption is 175W. This allows the users to get more out of the GPU. There are also many variants of this GPU that can be further overclocked thus eating more power. The power limit of this GPU is around 195W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked. You can get 10-15% more FPS when it’s overclocked but I would not recommend that, if you don’t know about overclocking.
|Multi-monitor:||Up to 4 displays|
|Maximum digital resolution:||7680 x 4320 @60 Hz|
|Maximum DP resolution:||7680 x 4320 @120 Hz|
|Maximum DVI resolution:||2560 x 1600|
|Maximum HDMI resolution:||4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz|
The max monitor support increases with the increase of new technologies and with new updates from monitors, TVs, etc. the GPU’s updates as well. This GPU can support maximum display at 8K with up to 4 monitors. There are vainest with different display outputs. But you will find more than 4 display connectors. There are some variants with thunderbolt displays at well. But there will be 2 display ports 1.4 and 2 HDMI 2.0b connectors. The display port can support 8K at 120Hz which is amazing. Because there will be no lags, and no delays with this new DP version. There is no 8K support on HDMI. Well, because the bandwidth of the HDMI is far less than the bandwidth of DP. If you have a monitor that supports 4k 144Hz or a monitor that supports 240Hz then I will recommend using the DP. Because of its bandwidth.
|Pixel fill rate:||105.6 Gigapixels/s|
|Texture fill rate:||224.4 Gigatexels/s|
|Single precision computes power:||7180.8 GFLOPS|
|Double precision computes power:||224.4 GFLOPS|
The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 105.6 Gigapixels/s which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 224.4 GTexel/s. That’s why it supports 8K at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. Now let’s talk about the texture fill rate. Texture fillrate measure how many texels can a GPU render per second. Texture fill rate is always measured in the amount of me like (1s). Texels are basically is three-dimensional space objects and called textured pixels.
|Standard display connectors:||2 x DisplayPort 1.4
Dual Link DVI-D
USB Type C
|Power connectors:||1 x 8-pin|
|Audio input for HDMI:||Yes|
Well, one of the most important and key factors about this GPU is its power consumption. This GPU is not that power-hungry. This GPU needs 1x 8-pin connector. There are also 2 display ports and 1 HDMI port, which is really great for multiple monitors. There is also Audio input from HDMI which also helps with these new monitors. The Single 8-pin connecter really made the wiring system completely awesome.
|Length:||9.0 inches (229 mm)|
These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some long GPUs. This GPU is 9 inches, which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also dual-slot which helps in heat overflow
Features & Support:
|Other features:||3D Vision
3D Vision Surround
|Open CL support:||1.2|
There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over me. The most amazing new features of this GPU are Ray tracing, 3D Vision, PhysX, etc. this GPU is so rich in features that a GPU king like Geforce RTX 3060 left behind. This NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last gen Open CL 1.2. This will help in boost performance. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.6. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.2 which makes the drivers experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super has the Shader model 6.4.
The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super has the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more powerful. The more Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. So this GPU is like steroids when it comes to the Cuda cores. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 120+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
