Earlier this week EVGA announced the release of their new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 Super KO GPUs and just as the RTX 2060 KO came in under NVIDIA’s MSRP of $299 for the old Black series these are also cheaper than the previous cards. The new cards will be going for $499.99 and $699.99 for the 2070 Super KO and 2080 Super respectively.
The 2080 Super has the standard 3072 CUDA cores and a boost clock of 1815 MHz as well as 8GB of GDDR6 at 15500MHz for a memory bandwidth of 496GB/s. The 2070 Super has the standard 2560 CUDA cores with a boost clock of 1770MHz, 8GB of GDDR6 at 14000MHz for a total memory bandwidth of 448GB/s.
That being said, we have to assume some cuts were made to get it to this price point and looking over at the cards, it lacks a backplate, the cooling seems a bit thinner than the Black series cards as well as a lack of a Virtual Link port with the card featuring 3 DisplayPort and a single HDMI for display outputs. We can reasonably assume some cuts as well to things under the hood, for example with power delivery. For more information check EVGA’s website.
