As we continue our series running compute benchmarks on the new “SUPER” line of NVIDIA graphics cards we have a ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan in for review. The GeForce RTX 2070 Super increases clock speeds which should yield faster performance. Additionally, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super gives a slight bump of Stream Processors from 2,176 and 136 Texture Units found on the RTX 2060 Super to 2,560 and to 160 on the GeForce RTX 2070 Super. RT cores also get a bump from 34 to 40. All is not upgraded as we still have 8GB of installed GDDR6 memory that we saw in the RTX 2070. We wanted to see how the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super fares compared to the updated GPU stack for those looking for a compute related card.
At the time of our writing this review, AMD still has not released their compute drivers that would allow us to finish our review of those GPUs as we noted in July’s STH AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 Review Update. If you need to get a compute-focused GPU, NVIDIA is doing a better job of bringing compute drivers to their desktop-class GPUs.
Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Twin Fan Overview
The retail box for our test Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan looks almost identical to the non-SUPER version so we will just give the main pictures. The main difference is the nomenclature for the word “SUPER” in the bottom green bar.
The front and back of the Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan looks very much like the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Twin Fan which we reviewed earlier.
With the Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan we see 1x 8-Pin and 1x 6-Pin power connector vs the 2x 8-Pin power connectors on the RTX 2080 Ti. The lower-end card does not use as much power.
Video outputs include 3x DisplayPort 1.4, and one HDMI 2.0.
Next, let us take a look at the Zotac GeForce RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan key specifications and continue on with our performance testing.
