Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Video outputs and ports

Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.

Competitors of GeForce RTX 2070 Super from AMD

The nearest GeForce RTX 2070 Super's AMD equivalent is Radeon RX 6700 XT, which is faster by 2% and higher by 2 positions in our rating.

Here are some closest AMD rivals to GeForce RTX 2070 Super:

Advantages of ATI Radeon X1700 SE

Lower power consumption (50W vs 215W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super

Much newer (2 July 2019 vs 30 November 2007)

Wider memory bus (256 vs 128 bit)

Higher memory bandwidth (448 vs 16 GB/s)

Finer manufacturing process technology (12 vs 80 nm)

DLSS

Raytracing

VR Ready

G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)

Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
