NVIDIA launched the Turing based GeForce RTX 20 series cards last year with a rather lukewarm response. One of the main criticisms was with regard to the pricing. The Turing cards especially the top-end models were an incremental upgrade over the older Pascal cards, and the only redeeming feature was ray-tracing. However, the problem was that there were no ray-tracing supported titles at the time of launch. That has changed only recently and with the launch of the Super variants, the price-performance ratio is also significantly improved. Even more so, when there are discounts. Today, you have one such opportunity to buy the GeForce RTX 2060 Super or the 2070 Super for a good price. In fact, these are the lowest retail prices we’ve ever seen for these cards.
Inno3D’s got the GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 Twin X2 OC for sale at astonishingly low prices. The 2070 Super Twin X2 OC sells for Rs. 39,999, just below the Rs. 40k psychological mark. Meanwhile, the 2060 Super Twin X2 OC sells for Rs. 31,999. This pretty much undercuts the Navi cards that are selling for 31.5K for the 5700 and approx 40K for the aftermarket XT. Although the reference RX 5700 XT is available for less than 35K, unless you’re willing to put up with a Steam Engine, I’d suggest staying away from it.
The GeForce RTX 2060 Super and 2070 Super are perhaps the best graphics cards for 1440p and 4K gaming at the moment, selling almost on par with the US prices. It just doesn’t get any better. We’re not sure how long these discounts will last, so if you’ve been planning to buy a graphics card, now would be the time.
