The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super, according to Nvidia, offers the same level of performance as the RTX 2070 at a much lower price, which makes it a no-brainer for anyone that loves performance and saving cash.

PC Gamer
The GeForce RTX 2060 Super is a capable graphics card that nearly matches the performance of the RTX 2070 while shaving $100 off the price.

PC Mag
Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 Super straddles the fine line between a video card made for esports and one for AAA gaming performance, and delivers consistently on each side where it matters most.

TechPowerUp
Unless NVIDIA cuts prices of the original RTX 2060, it risks the RTX 2060 Super cannibalizing not just the RTX 2070, but also the original RTX 2060. We would definitely spend the extra $50 on the Super—not just for the added performance, but also the future-proofing the added memory brings to the table.

Nvidia's RTX 2060 Super is indeed a great GPU, and really excels at 1440p gaming.

Although we aren’t sure who asked for something in between the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2070 Super, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2060 Super does deliver smooth frame rates across our benchmark suite at 2560 x 1440 at maxed-out detail settings.

But if you were holding off on Turing because of the price, the added performance boost does help provide added justification for the asking price. I'd also argue that the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is more impressive than its 2070 counterpart, squeezing out larger gains over the regular 2060.

The good news then is that if you are in the market for buying a video card – particularly for new system builds – then this latest round in the GPU wars means that the amount of performance you get for the money is getting even better. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super is all but an RTX 2070 in name and in price, delivering virtually identical performance for $100 less than the original RTX 2070.

PC Perspective
The RTX 2060 SUPER offers 8GB of GDDR6 as well, up from the 6GB with the original version and with it a move to a 256-bit memory interface from 192-bit. The 6GB limit with the RTX 2060 can be tested at higher resolutions and quality settings, and 8GB also puts the 2060 SUPER in a better position to compete with AMD’s RX 5700 Series.

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super was often faster than the pricier AMD Radeon VII, especially at 1440p. At 4K, however, the Radeon VII’s memory bandwidth advantage often gave it an edge. And the new GeForce RTX 2060 Super was faster than the Radeon RX Vega 64 more often than not.
