RTX 2070 SUPER vs RTX 2080 vs RTX 2070 vs RX 5700XT

Here is the comparison between RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2080, RTX 2070 and RX 5700XT graphics cards based on their specifications, performance, pricing, power consumption and features.

GPU Architecture

RTX 2070, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 belongs to the Nvidia RTX 20 series lineup and are built on the Turing GPU architecture on 12nm FinFET process. RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 shares the same GPU core, which is TU104 while the RTX 2070 uses the TU106 core, which is also used in the RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2060. RTX 2080 comes with 2944 CUDA Cores, RTX 2070 SUPER has got 2560 and the RTX 2070 has 2304 CUDA Cores. On the other hand, RX 5070 XT is AMD 5000 series graphics card that uses the Navi GPU micro-architecture and replaces the old GCN architecture with RDNA. It is built on the smaller 7nm FinFET manufacturing process and uses the Navi 10 GPU chip. RX 5700 XT comes with 2560 Stream Processors.

Features

All the graphics cards here support DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL, Vulkan, FreeSync and are VR ready. The features exclusive to RTX 20 series cards here is the support for Real Time Ray Tracing and DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) using the RT Cores and Tensor Cores. Also, they come with USB Type-C port at the rear for VirtualLink for supporting next generation VR headsets. Here, among all these cards, only RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 supports multi-GPI configuration, which is through NVIDIA RTX NVLink Bridge (SLI). On the other hand, only the RX 5700 XT comes with the support for new PCIe 4.0 standard or interface. When it comes to productivity, especially video editing & rendering, then all them are capable of hardware based encoding and decoding that helps to speed up the process.

Gaming Performance

Here are the benchmarks for these graphics cards in popular games at 1440p resolution.

Above, you can see that RTX 2080 is the fastest card, followed by RTX 2070 that is not too far behind. The performance of RTX 2070 Super is closely match against the RTX 2080, which is a much expensive card. The Radeon RX 5070 XT offers great value for money and beats the higher priced RTX 2070. Moreover, in some games, RX 5700 XT managed to beat the much higher priced RTX 2070 Super, which shows it true potential.

Power Consumption

When it comes to power consumption, then RTX 2070 is the clear winner, while RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 come after it with power consumption figure of 215W. The AMD card Radeon RX 5700 XT does consume a little more power compared to RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 at 225W. Except RTX 2070, all these cards require 6 pin + 8 pin PCIe power consumption while there is only one 8-pin connector needed for RTX 2070. However, some overclocked RTX 2070 cards from various other graphics card manufacturers do need both 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
