NVIDIA’s RTX series of cards haven’t even been out in stores for a year, but an all-new SUPER refresh is now on its way: RTX Super.

Available next month, the RTX Super cards implement “architectural and process optimisations” that NVIDIA has learnt over the past year. According to the hardware company, the new cards boast between 15% – 25% performance increase over the original RTX cards.

As for specs, the RTX 2060 Super has 8GB of GDDR6 memory at 15.5Gbps compared to its non-Super version which has 6GB at 14Gbps. The 2060 Super will cost just $399.

2070 Super and 2080 Super cards are planned to be replacements for the originals over time. As such, both the 2070 and the 2080 Supers are going to remain at the base versions’ retails price: $499 and $699.

We’ll have to wait for proper benchmarks to see whether or not the Super cards are worth the money, but with both 2070 and 2080 Supers taking the place of their originals, NVIDIA is surely confident in their ability.
