    Most companies aren't thinking of making better, cheaper, more powerful products that the customers want unless other company provide better value forcing them to make better products to compete.

    Amazing you have a review this late after launch and still fail to mention the underclocked Samsung VRAM even after it's widely known at this point to really open this card up when overclocked.

  • Luxxeon 3D

    Well, for the type of work I do, which includes CUDA powered rendering in several different graphics packages, such as Blender Cycles and Otoy Octane, the additional CUDA cores in the Super (3072 at boost clock of 1815) can mean the difference between finishing an animation in 1 hr or less than 45min. For gaming, I understand this doesn't mean much and probably isn't worth it for the price, but this allows the RTX 2080 Super to compete with the GTX Titan X in terms of GPU CUDA rendering at a similar price point. However, with the RTX Super, you have the added benefit of RTX cores which are soon finding their way into rendering software as well. Blender, for example, is working on implementing RTX boost to the Cycles render engine down the road and already have a test build you could use (not production stable). I'm guessing this will be introduced early next year in Blender, but possibly sooner in other GPU engines.

    To be honest.. I can't blame Nvidia since there are stupid people upgrades on 1-year-cycle
    Also.. they followed Apple BS with hiking prices with minimum justifications
    So yeah, people always blaming companies while they support them with their WALLETS!!
    Stop supporting them in 1st place -_-

    Wasn't the founders edition like the better ones during the was it gtx1000 series? what is next the return of gts and gtx? Ultra series? Most people already called it like when they saw the specs it was like hmm seems a little low like they did with the 1070 then the 1070ti came out. Kinda sucks but i am saving up for an RTX2070 super reluctantly i need the performance but amd don't do open gl very well and their encoder with obs is a mess.

  • itox85
    itox85 7 months ago

    it performs better
    it is priced the same
    the card it is replacing is 1 year old card
    so why so upset?
    and if making something that is better and has the same price is wrong then what should they do? make new card that are both better and more expensive?

    • itox85
      itox85 7 months ago

      @Greg Salazari am sorry if i miss something but what i get from this video is that you complaining on how super will piss the non super early buyer,
      so what i am trying to say is that the non super is already 1 year old and it is already time for new card to replace it, whatever it is called, and if releasing a new card 1 year after the last card is released is considered offensive to the buyer of the last card then intel, amd, and probably every single company out there is guilty of the same thing
      so basically rtx 20 series is already 1 year old and it is time for a new one, and we have a new one which is good

    • orangezombies
      orangezombies 7 months ago

      I need 144+ frames so it's just barely good enough for even a 1440p 100hz monitor.
      For someone like me on 1080p 240hz a 2080 Super today is best option as 2070 supers are OoS and 2080 is end of life and OoS.
      I had a 5700 xt but wasn't fast enough and ran at 86-95° at load. Nuts

  • JackAPC

    So, let me get this straight. The 2070SUPER is miles ahead of the 2070, almost as good as the 2080, yet the 2080SUPER is barely anything above the 2080? And they both cost the same as the non-supers?
    Oh and the 2060SUPER is almost as good as the 2070, but it costs almost the same as the 2070?
    NVIDIA, I don't know what the hell you're on, but pass it my way. Seems like it's pretty intense.
    I might just say screw it and get a 1070Ti or a 1080 off eBay.

  • RPGaming
    RPGaming 7 months ago

    I get your point, but that's the price for being an early adopter nowadays. 2080S should rather be compared with a 2070S and a 2080Ti. It's basically the odd man out in between, for those who want better performance than 2070S, but don't want to waste 1200+ on a 2080ti.
    It's actually a good alternative for 1440p/144 & 4K/60, especially when overclocked.

    "to artificially cripple performance out of the gate" yep, nvidia initially hamstringed their own cards (screwing over the consumers) so that they could use what should have been the original launch cards to undercut amd's navi launch. dirty tactics for sure. amd is SO CLOSE to becoming a real threat in the gpu space and i'm rooting for them hard.

  • Mike Wu
    Mike Wu 7 months ago

    Honestly. it's not even about the 5%. It's Nvidia's entire principal on marketing, and ripping off its customers. Nvidia only views its customers as its cash cow, so it can overinflate its stock prices. They charge an arm and a leg for last generation node technology (12 nm) as it is super cheap and mature to significantly inflate its margins. Nvidia fanboys keep screaming 7 nm EUV chips will destroy, except 7 nm EUV is extremely expensive and can't charge an arm and a leg like it used to with RDNA cards out and keep the same profit margins they enjoy now. So enjoy your 500-1200 dollar GPU fanboys.

    Very strange that you say that people who bought the RTX 2080 a year ago should be pissed off because the new card is barely faster. I would think just the opposite. Almost no performance difference and being able to play for one more year? Seems like an excellent deal for early adoptors.

    Hey you could buy the fully functional die of the 2080 around launch time. For only 2300$ price tag for professional market. Because die size is so large they get many partially functional dies for every fully functional die. Think it like screens having dead pixels because manufacturing errors, same thing but instead of having bad looking pixel they have to disable the SM that has such error. As TSMC improves yields and 2070 super takes the role of consuming partially functional dies and initial demand has been satisfied they can bring the dies that would of gone to the professional market to consumer market and cut down the consumer version even more to create the new lineup. Nvidia wanted to make 2080 super better but board partners didn't want to spend money to design new cards with better power delivery and better signal traces for the memory subsystem so Nvidia made the small improvements it could.
    Oh and I'd rather have Nvidia engineers design a true next gen chip than to make small changes to spend time to design new chip which sole purpose is to make people who care about the chip not complain it being same chip but with different SKU:s made out of it.
    Oh and I upgraded from 750 ti to 2070 super. The reason why that supers matters isn't because its comparison to last years models, it matters because comparison to cards that are old enough for people to actually have need to upgrade from. I've always considered stupid to upgrade a computer part in every generation. Better idea would be getting something better and hold it for long time. Minimum reasonable upgrade limit is 2x performance, and you never get that generational improvement, unless you define the performance as some specific niche thing that got ignored in previous generation like Integer compute between Pascal and Turing.

    something i'm not seeing anyone talk about (not even hardware unboxed and they are Australian ffs) is that Nvidia is jacking the price of the super cards here in Australia by 200$ and removing the cheaper non-super cards, you could buy a 2070 for under 800$ but now you can only buy 2070s for 950$ so no not a "free" upgrade at all

    I just had a thought, why doesn't Nvidia allow the people who originally bought the 2080 for example to flash their cards to become a super Card . They already paid a premium being an early adopter, and the super cards cost the same so where's the harm ? Non super cards are EOL anyway so it's not like people will buy old cards and Flash them. They won't be in circulation besides older 2nd hand cards .
