    This was anticipated, increases in the order of 10% to 15%...

    The RTX 2070 Super for $499 is to me the best deal, making $700~$800 cards irrelevant (RTX 2080 and Radeon VII).

    It´s a shame the RTX 2060 Super raised its MSRP. If it had kept the $349, it would be a great choice.

    Kinda weird how they seem to be cannibalizing their own sales. The 2070 Super is pretty damn good compared to the 2080.
    If they had a GTX 1770 (or whatever it'd be called) that was basically the 2070 Super without RTX for a $100 price drop, I'd be very enticed to get that.

    It´s only momentary, the RTX 2080 will leave the market to be replaced by the RTX 2080 Super in a few weeks!

    It's nice to see the "60" model that's faster than last gens "70" model and has at least the matching amount of ram finally. Price is a still a bit high though.

    So still no upgrade worth it for us 1080ti users, unless we go RTX 2080 ti :-(

    Navi 5700 and 5700XT will offer similiar performance as these super cards. It all comes down to pricing and features.

    Somehow whatever nvidia do rtx cards are still not interesting. Gtx turing cards are even worse.

    2070S looks a bit better now, same price/aka improved price/performance which was by far the biggest issue with that card. Kinda ruined the 2060 with the S variant tho, lower price performance for their entry level card doesn't seem like a wise choice.

    A wise move by Nvidia but still not that appealing, pricing could’ve been better.

    Hopefully the 2080 Super will come relatively close to the 2080 TI, now that would be interesting.

    What? The 2060S is faster than the now defunct 2070 by about 2-5% that puts it head to head in DX12 (minus the BF5 outliers) and winning in DX11 against the $449 5700xt. The 2070S will destroy the 5700xt 50th for the same price.

    So no AMD will offer lower performance for more or the same money.

    Navi, as much as I like where it is headed, looks like it's DOA with it current prices.

    What sales?

    They are loosing sales to their ridiculous pricing scheme. And will continue to loose them (imho) until something mainstream like 2060 gets back to ~250$ range instead of trying to be the 400$ part. No one cares for ray tracing, especially on card like 2060 that can't even do it properly.

    PS. We as customers SHOULD NOT CARE about how much money nVidia (or anyone else for that matter) invested into the tech. That's their problem.

    If only the 2070's was like 50-70$ less, they'd be in the right spot imo. I know they probably have have to charge this price due to RD/production cost of the (currently) rather fluff Tensor/RT cores, which i think they should have kept as a premium choice only aka. on the 2080+ cards until it matured and becomes mainstream.
    As it is, i'll likely (praying to the AMD gods) be going with 5700xt/5800 depending on the price/performance it settles at.

    And then a question to those that are tech-savvy: the TDP... what would happen to the 'normal' 2070 if it was allowed +40 watt ?. I assume the architecture of the 2 cards are similar, or is it the extra transistors that calls for that extra TDP (maybe a silly question, NOT that technical minded... )

    Kinda makes me upset. I purchased my 2070 a lil b4 the Supers where popping up in rumors. So now a 2060S is faster(in most cases) than my 2070 and cheaper???? I feel raped!!!:eek:

    Did you felt the presence of a leather jacket behind you???Then you were...

    Anyway in my opinion 2070 Super is a great deal. And by looking at the RTX On Metro Exodus WQHD 49 fps is not bad at all.

    This has been a disappointing year for GPU's all around. The only card that has any interest for current 1080Ti owners who haven't already upgraded to a 2080Ti due to pricing is the 2080 Super. I'm not jumping on that ship this late in the product life cycle and will wait it out until next gen. These cards should have had these prices at the beginning of the RTX launch, but it feels way too little and too late at this point. Just my opinion. I'm sure the super release will make some folks happy.
