EVGA XC Ultra (+1200 MHz mem, auto-OC averaging 2025-2050 MHz core)
Power unlimited 2070 will match power limiter 2070 Super in OC pretty much. Even at 200W max with my crappy 4 core 4 thread I can get into 10000-10500 score in Timespy yet the highest in reviews I've seen from 2070S OC (215W*1.2) was 11100 or so.
The Super are what RTX should have been from the start, including bundled games, not that I expect Supers to come with games in my region but it would definitely be better than the bare no bundled games RTX they are selling so far.
At equal power limit Super vs normal the performance difference is not as large as reviews are showing it.
In reviews they compare stock 175W 2070 at low clocks vs 2070 Super at 215W and high clocks... of course it's faster ha when it's pushed so much more from the factory. The added hardware helps yes but it's not much. The clocks and power limit is what gives it that extra performance increase.

The whole point of these is to stop anyone from considering AMD. Notice how they shoved these out right before the Navi release so they would be included in Navi reviews. And they dropped the teaser right when hype was high for amd at computex.

2070 to 2080 is pointless, same as it was with previous 70/80 cards. The difference is not big even on Turing where it was larger than before due to how they cut the chips this time around.
NV always launches something just before AMD does, to show their cards vs older cards and get reviewers busy and tired. Then AMD launches and is being compared to NV's new cards and reviewers are freakin' sleepless tired.
2070 Super, worth about $350.
5700 XT about $275.
They still have a long way to go to get to sensible pricing. Look how long it took for Vega to drop down and it drop down deep while everyone was saying how expensive the cards are to make and there is no profit margin to cut and so on, there always is, they are making a killing on GPUs especially Nvidia.
Turing is sort of a stop gap and a way to push for more tracing in graphics.
Navi... a catch up from AMD after their flops and bad decisions. 7nm... don't care, perf./price and perf./power is what matters.
Can't wait for the 6 months wait until custom cards of Navi get to stores. They always know how to make people wait.
