NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Review


NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Specifications

Here are the key specs for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER:

This is nowhere near the dual NVIDIA Titan RTX level of power, cost, or performance, but it is important nonetheless. Not everyone that is interested in GPU compute has the means to purchase a high-end setup. One of NVIDIA’s key differentiators is the ability to make CUDA programming accessible to a wider audience. It can scale performance and capability to a user’s budget. That means as someone becomes more proficient in CUDA, they can get hardware to match up to the largest supercomputers. Here is a quick table of the current NVIDIA GeForce RTX family reflecting the older cards and the original GeForce RTX 2080’s at $699.

Again, if you are running deep learning and AI workloads, you will want the RTX 2080 Ti (or Titan RTX) if funds permit. If they do not, we have benchmarks showing what you can expect.

Testing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER

Here is our test configuration for our GPUs. Note, we are using fairly pricey Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs which would be more commonly found in a server rather than a desktop.

• Motherboard: ASUS WS C621E SAGE Motherboard
• CPU: 2x Intel Xeon Gold 6134 (8 core / 16 Threads)
• Cooling: Noctua NH-U14S DX-3647 LGA3647
• RAM: 12x MICRON 16GB Low Profile
• SSD: Samsung PM961 1TB
• OS: Windows 10 Pro Workstation.

Here is the obligatory GPU-Z shot of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER:

GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. The GPU clocks in at 1650 MHz and can boost up to 1815. Pixel Fillrates run at 116.2 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 348.5 GTexel/s.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.


  1. Since the Quadro P6000 was placed on some of the performance graphs, it would have been nice to see how the RTX 2080 Super compares against the Quadro RTX5000.

  2. GeForce RTX 2080 Super is a fucking gpu for deep learning! I really don’t recommend it!

  3. The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER is a pretty good gaming GPU. However, due to the supply and demand on this card, the prices are sky rocketing. You could probably find a 3070 for the same price, if not less. If you can manage to find a good deal on one, and not on any 30 series product, pull the trigger on it. In my opinion, this is a great card, but you could find better.
