NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Complete review with benchmarks- When the GTX 1000 series came out, there were no super versions of that series GPUs. But Nvidia announced the super version of their RTX 2000 GPUs, and we were excited to see the super version of the RTX 2080. This RTX 2080 Super is faster than you think it is. This time this GPU has some of the fastest GPU clock and memory clock speeds, with advanced architecture and with a better design for fast air flow to keep the GPU cool. There is also some latest drivers to help maintain the GPU stable in extreme conditions. With better-curved fans, the cooling experience of this GPU is also quiet and silent. So in today’s article, we will review this GPU for gamers and for video editors, etc. whether you should buy this GPU or not. So stay tuned.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super
Name and Architecture:
|Model:||GeForce RTX 2080 Super|
|Fabrication process:||12 nm|
|Bus interface:||PCI-E 3.0 x 16|
|Launch date:||July 2019|
|Price at launch:||$699|
this GPU was launched alongside more Super GPUs in the RTX 2000 series. There is not much of a difference in the price between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super but the performance difference is enormous. This GPU is also one of the best GPUs out there with better speeds and with better memories. But when the RTX 3000 series touched the market then the value of these GPUs was completely lost, because RTX 3060Ti is similar to the performance of this GPU and you can buy the RTX 3060Ti for just $400 while this GPU costs around $700. But as you know there is always a difference in price to performance.
|Base clock:||1650 MHz|
|Boost clock:||1815 MHz|
The base frequency of this GPU is 1650 MHz, which is faster than most new GPUs. The Boost Clock is also faster than other GPUs at this point which is 1815 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, the performance is smooth with the new latest drivers and with the latest processors to avoid bottlenecks.
|Memory size:||8 GB|
|Memory clock:||1937 MHz|
|Memory clock (effective):||15496 MHz|
|Memory interface width:||256-bit|
|Memory bandwidth:||495.87 GB/s|
|L2 cache:||4 MB|
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 1937 MHz. Which is really fast compared to its predecessors. The memory clock of this GPU is 15.4 GHz, which is amazingly fast, and don’t forget this GPU is also so 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 RTX 2060 and Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 Super. The memory bandwidth is freaking 495 GB/s which is awesome. The cache memories are also good in terms of performance. The L2 cache memory is 4MB which is impressive.
Cores & Texture:
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super has 3072 CUDA cores. The Cuda cores are more than Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 and Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 Super. There are 64 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and scaling the image. There are also 384 Tensor Cores which will help in Ray tracing. Ray tracing is so much fun to play with I mean with the new latest games you can enjoy the full amazing lighting control, reflections, and so much more to play games with ray tracing on. There are also new features in this GPU like DLSS, what these features do is that new algorithms this upscale your game’s resolutions to make it more crisp and sharp. There are also 48 RT cores. There are 192 texture units.
|Maximum power draw:||250 W|
This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 250W compared to its predecessor’s 270W. This GPU is faster than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 Super and power efficient too. Because this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Superpower consumption is 250W. 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 280W 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|
This GPU can also support 4 monitors with a DP port and an HDMI port. I will always recommend the DP port because it supports 8K, but the HDMI 2.0 does not. Let’s say you have a higher refresh rate monitor like 144Hz, or 240Hz then the DP port will be best because the DP port has higher bandwidth with more speeds. Thus making the experience more smooth for games. If you have a G-sync monitor then it will help a lot because it will reduce the latency and will deliver more faster and efficient performance.
|pixel fill rate:||116.16 Gigapixels/s|
|Texture fill rate:||348.48 Gigatexels/s|
|Single precision computes power:||11151.36 GFLOPS|
|Double precision computes power:||348.48 GFLOPS|
The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 116.16 Gigapixels/s which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 348.48 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:||3 x DisplayPort 1.4
USB Type C
|Power connectors:||1 x 6-pin
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 a 1x 8-pin connector and 1×6 Pin. There are also 3 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.
|Length:||10.5 inches (267 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 10.5 inches, which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also dual-slot which helps in heat overflow. There are some variants of this GPU to offer triple fan with triple slot GPU which is very good in many cases.
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 2080 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 2080 Super also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.6. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 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 2080 Super has the Shader model 6.4.
The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 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 on 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.
