Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2070 to RTX 2080 SUPER is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RTX 2070 .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER

The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2080 Ti, the RTX 2080 SUPER 's price is getting more discount. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2080 SUPER consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1080, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem at 71 fps to 104 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 86 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Hitman 2, Anthem, Just Cause 4 at 64 fps to 87 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Resident Evil 2, Far Cry 5, Far Cry New Dawn, F1 2019, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at 61 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070

The RTX 2080 might be the high-end flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most mid-range PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 2070 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 499. The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2070 SUPER, the RTX 2070 's price is getting more discount.

NVIDIA ’s xx70 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the RTX 2070, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RTX 2070 is much more expensive than the GTX 1070 as it costs a whopping $ 499. Compare this to the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which came originally at a price of $ 399, $ 409. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 XT which costs $ 399.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2070 blows past the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and, amazingly, even the GTX 1080 as well. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2070 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RTX 2070. Similarly, those holding onto RX 5700 XT 's RX Vega 56 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Assassin's Creed Odyssey at 65 fps to 83 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 74 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Anthem, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Red Dead Redemption 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy XV at 64 fps to 69 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps. For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, F1 2018 at 61 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

RTX 2080 SUPER vs RTX 2070 with i7-8700K vs i7-8700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2080 SUPER is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2080 SUPER 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like RTX 2080 SUPER requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2080 SUPER , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
