Announced a few days ago, the Super line of cards from NVIDIA are now available. The cards currently come in three variants, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, GeForce RTX 2070 Super, and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. These three cards are bump in in speed and performance over their non-Super variants.

You can grab these cards from many OEMs right now as well as Founder Edition cards from NVIDIA. From the reviews I've seen online, they look like a good buy and with more and more ray tracing games coming out, now's a good time to pick up an RTX card if you are looking to upgrade. Pricing from the 2060, 2070, and 2080  are $399, $499, and $699 respectively.

As with new cards being released, new drivers have also been pushed out to not only add support for the two Super cards, but offer up improvements in games such as Metro Exodus, Strange Brigade, and Tom Clancy's Division 2.

NVIDIA also announced a product called NVIDIA FrameView, which allows for benchmarking and you can grab this for free. It'll run tests testing out DirectX 9 to 12, OpenGL, and Vulkan.

SUPER TUESDAY

Our new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER graphics cards are now available worldwide. They’re up to 25% faster in games than our previous GPUs, and with numerous custom versions available from partners such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac, you’ll be able to find a SUPER GPU for your budget, needs, and aesthetic tastes. Models are widely available today from leading e-tail and retail location, and Founders Editions are available on GeForce.com as well.

CONTROL AND WOLFENSTEIN: YOUNGBLOOD BUNDLE EXTENDED

Don’t forget, select models come with copies of Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood, two ray-traced titles that will take full advantage of the performance and features of the new SUPER GPUs. In addition, the bundle promotion is also being extended across our RTX product lineup. So other RTX GPUs, including RTX-based desktops and laptops from our worldwide partners, are also eligible for this promotion.

NEW GAME READY DRIVER DELIVERS MORE DX12 PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS

NVIDIA also released a new Game Ready Driver the delivers significant performance improvements for the DirectX 12 versions of Metro Exodus, Strange Brigade, and Tom Clancy’s Division 2.  Check out the GeForce.com article for details on how these DX12 titles have improved over time.

This driver also adds support for the new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and GeForce 2070 Super GPUs as well as 3 new G-SYNC compatible displays (LG 34GL750, HP 25mx, and HP Omen X 25f).

NVIDIA FRAMEVIEW NOW PUBLICLY AVAILABLE

Today also marks the launch of NVIDIA FrameView, our performance and power benchmarking application. Graphics cards are investments, bought on the promise of delivering excellent performance in that card’s class for at least 2 to 3 years. It’s therefore important that the benchmarks of these cards are accurate and cover all the bases, showing frame rates, frame times, power usage, performance per watt, and more.

To date, no single tool or app has accurately delivered these results, which is why we’ve created FrameView, an all-in-one benchmarking app that everyone can download and use for free.

FrameView can capture data from all major APIs and virtually all games thanks to support for DirectX 9, 10, 11 and 12, OpenGL, Vulkan, and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications.

It has a minimal, lightweight impact on performance while benchmarking, its integrated overlay enables you to view performance and stats during gameplay, and it’s vendor agnostic, too, enabling the collection of detailed, comparative data. One exception: AMD’s GPU power consumption API reports a value in-between chip power and board power, rather than the true values. So you’ll have to contact AMD and ask them to provide accurate results in their API.

In short, if you want to view or collect real-time GPU performance and power data in games, FrameView delivers more of it with a higher degree of accuracy than many other tools and methods, making it the go-to app for benchmarking.
