Nvidia’s latest line of graphics cards, the RTX Super, has finally been announced after a month of teasing.

Nvidia claims that the RTX Super variants will “increase performance by up to 25%”.

The new lineup consists of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super.

Each Super variant adds CUDA cores, Tensor Cores, and RT Cores.

Both the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super include an additional 256 CUDA Cores, 32 Tensor Cores, and 4 RT Cores.

Unlike the previous two cards, The GeForce RTX 2080 Super is a less substantial revision, with only the addition of 128 CUDA cores, 16 Tensor Cores, and two RT Cores.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Super will also sport 8GB of GDDR6 RAM, unlike the base GeForce RTX 2060 with only 6GB of GDDR6 RAM.

The first two cards of the series, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super will launch on July 9th, 2019, while the GeForce RTX 2080 Super will launch on July 23rd, 2019.

Nvidia claims the RTX 2080 Super will outperform last-generation's Pascal-powered Titan Xp,

Nvidia also announced that starting on July 9th, Control and Wolfenstein: Youngblood will both be packed in with all three of the RTX Super GPUs.

Do you plan on picking up any of the cards from the RTX Super line-up?

Not a chance. These cards' one strength is real-time ray-tracing - something which only the professional market actually has a need for. Furthermore, NVIDIA's done a horrible job of introducing the public to the power of ray-tracing - as pointed out by a critic, thanks to the Quake II RTX release, people have been given the false impression that it takes a game from the 1990s just to run real-time ray-tracing at an acceptable framerate.

This seems quite unnecessarily split up. I'd combine them like so:
