Pricing and Availability
The Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP was released in India in 2019, and it is available for 65,200 INR. Compared to the RTX 2070 Super AMP card it replaces, which was launched back in 2018.
Below is the comparative chart for the top graphics cards—
When you explore the Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super and the technology it inherits, it is much different that the RTX 2070 Super AMP that came before. Let’s have a look at the key features of Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP which makes it best bet for gaming.
With the Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP, you’re basically getting a more powerful RTX 2080 with 3072 CUDA cores as compared to 2560 CUDA cores of 2070 Super AMP version. The RTX GeForce 2080 Super also supports an incremented Engine boost speeds up to 1815 MHz, which is slightly higher than the 1800 MHz offered by RTX 2070 Super AMP. This feature makes it one of the fastest Super graphics cards in the market.
IceStorm 2.0 Cooling
Like the Zotac RTX 2070 Super AMP and other predecessors, the Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP gaming cards are based on the IceStorm 2.0 cooling system, which as the name suggests provides enhanced cooling through additional heat dissipation. The two 90mm cooling fans are accompanied by stronger aluminium heatsink array which cools the GPU, MOSFETs, VRM and memory.
The Super AMP series is known for delivering few of the fastest video cards of any GPU generation and the RTX 2080 Super AMP is no exception. As we know, the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 are compatible with delivering impressive gaming performance. Now with the introduction of RTX 2080 Super, we have a graphics card that is nearly as Superior as 2080 Ti, but with an affordable price point.
Powered by NVIDIA Turing architecture, the RTX 2080 also includes more cores and robust GDDR6 memory. It’s 16+4 power phase design ensures efficient and stable supply to all components.
One of the most significant upgrades in RTX 2080 Super AMP is its faster VRAM. It delivers exceptional bandwidth of 15.5 Gbps compared to the 14 Gbps offered by standard RTX 2080 graphic card. The faster VRAM is sure to boost the overall GPU performance, especially with games and applications that consume more memory bandwidth.
In addition to the hardware upgrades, a new software feature is available in RTX 2080 Super AMP which may actually prove beneficial to all gaming enthusiasts: Frameview, a type of benchmarking software will not only provide users with data such as frame rates, frame time, GPU usage and temperature but also analyzes the amount of power consumed by the card without having to rely on costly softwares.
With all the specifications mentioned above, it is evident that RTX 2080 Super AMP is one powerful graphics card showing 4-6% performance increment over the Vanilla RTX 2080. In Firststrike Ultra, RTX 2080 super AMP scored 6636 points as compared to RTX 2080’s 6281, totalling a performance improvement of 6%. Similarly, in timespy extreme, we observed that RTX 2080 super scored 4869 points while RTX 2080 had to settle for 4656 points.
The Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMP is surely more budget-friendly, more powerful version of its predecessor graphic cards. Its high-end graphics performance and the price drop is enough to convince people to turn in for this beast. PCshop provides exclusive deals on the latest Graphic cards and gaming accessories.
