Product on Review: GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition
Street Price: USD $699 – AUD $1209 - GBP £669
In a bid to cement their position in the high-performance GPU market, NVIDIA today unveils their third model under the mid-life RTX refresh – the RTX 2080 SUPER. We’ve already seen what the 2060 SUPER and 2070 SUPER are capable of and it was immediately apparent that a shift in performance to the next-tier SKU was the order of the day. So better performance for less money – what’s not to like?
The RTX 2080 SUPER isn’t designed to revolutionise or introduce anything ground-breaking but will continue the trend we’ve seen in the other SUPER siblings. So, we expect this GPU to nestle into position above the RTX 2080 and trail the RTX 2080 Ti.
As it presently stands, the cheapest RTX 2080 Ti sits at 1100 USD - 1799 AUD - £1000 GBP. Will this Founders Edition variant of RTX 2080 SUPER be a worthwhile option for those unable to afford the current GPU king?
