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.

lunixThat's clearly not an advantage - you have a harder time getting the latest drivers. Also, stop with this "proper" way nonsense - the linux kernel is monolithic but it doesn't mean that it won't work without integrated drivers - quite the opposite, gpu drivers are better when they're separated because you can access even the beta drivers without compiling your own kernel. And a reminder:

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"(

Help me reading the date of this release:

lunixMore smugness from an AMD user - what a surprise! I know, I know - "don't ever question the holy mesa driver!"

I decided that the quality of my answers will be the same as yours (funny enough, this seems to trigger you).

You talk about quality without even giving any reason to support the "this is shit" statement you bring. You don't even seems to understand the difference between monolithic a modular kernel. IMHO there is no point to debate with someone that is only a big bag of biases.

Purple Library GuyYou know, both I and various other people I have seen arguing with you normally have very calm, pleasant discussions on these boards. All of us seem to find this impossible with you. Seems to me the unifying factor here is you, consistently dissing everyone you talk to.
Would it kill you to be civil?

In the first comment you wrote to me you were VERY condescending and acting holier-than-thou. In your second comment you acted like I was stupid and you were some kind of enlightened genius who could educate anyone with a few words.
The second guy was the usual AMD fanboy: amd gud, nvidia bad.
The third one dissed every nvidia user and he's constantly doing that.

Would it kill you amd users to be civil and objective once? Oh, never mind, I'm out.
Since lunix is out, this isn't for lunix.
But I would like to note for future reference that if someone makes a point which is about sides and says nasty things about the side they are not on, which can be expected to have some representatives around, that's going to lead to problems even if they are not already in a discussion with a particular specific person on that side. So then, sure, if someone from that side comes along and takes issue snippily, they can then say "Look! They're being mean to me and I didn't even do anything!"
But it's kind of disingenuous; the fact is that there's a group of people they already collectively gave the finger, and it's not too surprising if members of that group take offense. There's actually a couple fairly venerable (by internet standards) words for the act of talking trash online about groups you expect to be reading the trashtalk. They are not words synonymous with "respect".
So for instance, say you're on a Linux-oriented discussion board and call open source a religion--the very deliberate implication of which is that positive beliefs about open source are baseless and irrational, and in turn that people holding such beliefs must be unthinking, gullible fools. You can expect that there are going to be people on such a board who have positive beliefs about open source and consider this insulting. Further, since they have likely arrived at those beliefs by thoughtful reflection, they are going to think the person saying it is an aggressive moron or an exemplar of certain venerable internet terms referenced above. Someone leading off with that kind of approach should be grateful if all they get is condescension. Well, unless a flame war is what they were after from the start.

So yeah. Provocative behaviour on internet boards is not limited to attacks on individuals. Trolling is generally aimed at broader groups.
