    We review the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, NVIDIA has launched a new Super graphics cards, as in super-charged in a super range of what they deem super products. GeForce RTX 2080 Super is based on a Turing TU104 chip and was paired with some snazzy fast GDDR6 graphics memory. So then, worth it? Let's find out.

    Haha called it, was telling people that the 2080S wasnt going to be as big as 2070S was to 2070 and some people were thinking it was going to be "2080Ti like" :rolleyes:

    Hilbert you mention a few times how 2080S is faster and cheaper but isnt any cheaper at all. It have the same 700$ price tag as original and thats FE, something like asus strix will carry a price premium.

    If i bought a 2080 last year i would be meh, 9% faster for a year of waiting. Isnt worth pulling the hair out.
    To be honest one should just get 2070S and save 200$.

    Here the cheapest one is €120 more than cheapest 2080. €210 more than the cheapest 2070S.

    What a pointless card, the 2070 Super is the way to go, as thats 2080 non Super performance.

    Hmm, unless I am wrong the RTX 2080 was 799 at launch for the FE edition. I'll doublecheck though.

    Yep, if I had known 6 months ago that the Super would be out I would not have waited for it. And yes, the 2070S at this stage would be the more obvious choice.

    Yeah I am right, so the RTX 2080 AIB card started at 699 and the Founder editon was priced 799 USD.

    @skar One is GPU score only and other one is the total score.

    So now NV is killing the AIB sales even more?

    As others have mentioned, the value doesn't seem to justify this card given the performance of the 2070S - especially given they have the same amount of memory.

    No offence but this is not the type of writing I would expect from a reputable review site.

    I just read that, lol. Agreed, not expected (nice review otherwise HH). Those who have had the cards long enough got their worth out of them. Secondly, it applies to nearly all GPUs depending on when you bought one and how soon something else better, cheaper comes out after it. Will it suck to be a 2080ti owner if a 3080ti comes out in 6 months? Or a RX590 owner after 5700 a few months later, etc?

    Never realized that would be seen as offensive. I'll rewrite that a bit.

    How the allmighty 1080Ti has fallen...Getting beat by even the 5700XT in some. :(

    On the other hand, I do match the stock 2080S fps(1440p) in FC:New Dawn when lightly OC'ed( ~2000-2012/+500 mem).

    All in all I see a nice performance from the 2080S tbh but imho the general concensus since last year concerning the turing cards, still holds if I would say.

    Bit better now tho I should add, just to give credit where credit's due.

    Will quote HH from the conclusion as he nailed it:

    HH , even thou the writing was perfect, I am sorry that some ppl get offended by every little word that is there ... I am afraid in a few years we will all be little sheep with no word to say !
    I undersend @anthos but why we always need to apologize for something .
    As far as the review goes , same opinion 2700S is the better road .
    Hope I have't offended anyone now ! .
    ... Have all a grate night

    A measly 8-9% increase wouldn't be enough to cause any regret.

    Surely a small OC on the 2080 would close that gap considerably.

    I'm with everyone else here, the 2070S seems to be the best performance/price ratio card available right now.

    I understand that you didn't do it with a malicious intent however it is difficult to give you pass on that and I ll tell you why.
    In 2019 you reviewed a 2080 card and you gave it the "Guru3d recommended" badge. Someone out there might have trusted your opinion and went with it. Then a few months down the line he reads from the same person that if he bought a 2080 - within the timeframe you yourself advised him to - then it "sucks to be him". That immediately insults him and destroys any credibility he has towards you.
    Anyway again it is not meant to be a jab against you, but I wanted to advise you of the way it could be perceived and the impact it could have.

    p.s my card is an nvidia 610 just in case anyone starts to wonder different things...
