Both cards are based on the Turing architecture, come with 8GB GDDR6 as standard, they also both have a 14Gbps listed Memory Speed, a 256-bit listed Memory Interface Width and 448GB/sec listed Memory Bandwidth. As for the rest, I've listed some of the specifications for each below:

GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

  • 2176 "NVIDIA CUDA Cores"
  • 1470Mhz Base Clock + 1650Mhz Boost Clock

GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

  • 2560 "NVIDIA CUDA Cores"
  • 1605Mhz Base Clock + 1770Mhz Boost Clock

More info on the cards can be found on the official NVIDIA website.

As for the brand new 430.34 driver release, it's a pretty small and focused update to add in support for the new cards. It adds support for the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, Quadro RTX 4000 with Max-Q Design and Quadro RTX 5000 with Max-Q Design and nothing else is noted for it.

Find the details on the new driver here.

Nvidia: releases the driver with the hardware on the same day, even for linux.
AMD: "We are targeting a launch day driver [for Linux] but Windows obviously takes priority"(https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2019/07/02/will-amd-radeon-rx-5700xt-graphics-cards-support-linux-gaming/#4e6d19043af9)

Slightly overclocking to justify high prices. That's all.

Sadly thats been the trend with AMD .Ryzen support seems a bit broken also, It always takes few weeks or a month to settle all the mess for AMD sadly. Ofc its probably not that huge deal as most users wont buy day one hardware, at least i guess, but still sucks.

Nvidia is Evil for many, but they always had drivers ready for the launch day.

Yeah, support matters for most people but I'm SUPER interested in 5700XT and not having proper support is just disappointing. There is no reason to release the hardware so early...

The RTX 2060 SUPER should be called RTX 2060ti...

agree, but i think its because they can't make another 2080 Ti

Super is such a stupid name though. but whenever i see that name, somehow the voice of SuperHot (Game) level completion comes into my brain

Maybe (SUPER) it was some kind of a in-house joke that got stuck and eventually promoted to official.

In a broad sense, aren't all cards based on Turing architecture?

Seeing as they're using Titanium (Ti) for their high end cards, maybe Strontium (Sr) would have been a good name for these souped-up ones.
