NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
Released in 2019, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER is a GPU from NVIDIA. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a good card for gaming with a score of 39%.
The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 437 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GPU core runs at a frequency of 1407 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1650 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
Power and thermals for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 175 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
