[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel]NVIDIA’s RTX series graphics cards will have been available for one year after their official launch at the Cologne Game Show in September 2018. The RTX 20 series graphics cards are the only ones that currently support hardware ray tracing as a revolutionary graphics card series. With more and more games supporting ray tracing effects, NVIDIA’s ray tracing ecosystem improves.
However, with the release of AMD’s Navi architecture Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards in mid-June, NVIDIA also officially brought the suffix SUPER series of new graphics cards on July 2nd. The new SUPER suffix series graphics cards have been strengthened in terms of specifications compared to the products released six months ago, and we must sigh at the exquisite “knife work” of the old yellow. Interestingly, after NVIDIA released the RTX 20 SUPER series graphics cards, the standard version of the RTX 20 series prices have decreased somewhat.
The role of the new graphics card is also obvious, as it is used to disguise lower prices and stimulate the market in order to increase sales. The new RTX 20 SUPER series still uses TSMC’s 12nm process, continues to use Turing architecture, supports real-time ray tracing, DLSS technology, memory frequency remains unchanged, core frequency has been increased, from the price of the e-commerce platform, the RTX 2070 price is down to about 3,500 yuan, RTX 2070 SUPER pricing is at 4,000, very good to fill the space in the high-end graphics card market.
Last week, I received a non-public version of the RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card, which was sent to me for testing by Seven Rainbow and is part of the flagship Vulcan X version.
The TU104-410 core with 13.6 billion transistors, integrated 40 groups of 2560 CUDA, 40 RT Cores ray tracing cores, 160 texture units and 64 raster units, maintaining a 256bit bit width, 14Gbps GDDR6 memory frequency, giving the card a 448GB/s memory bandwidth is featured on the iGame Geforce RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X OC graphics card. Furthermore, NVIDIA changed the TDP (Thermal Design Power) on the spec sheet to TGP (Total Board Power), demonstrating that they are better at power control. Graphics Card Design As part of iGame’s flagship series, the RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X OC graphics card is designed in the style of the previous generation Vulcan X.
The graphics card’s deflector is in the traditional silver and black color scheme, with a cool metallic texture that gives the card a more subdued appearance. The three 8cm fans have been replaced with the new iGame logo, which increases airflow to the graphics card and helps to control the card’s temperature.
The flagship graphics card has three card slots for better heat dissipation, and it appears to be quite thick. iGame has added a “Spirit Vision backplate” to the card to prevent PCB deformation, as well as RGB lighting on the back of the card and under the GPU core. Furthermore, the graphics card includes a new LCD display that gamers can customize to achieve personalized gameplay by simply using the latest iGame Status Monitor 2.0.NVLink InterfacePCI-E x16 interface channel
The RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card now has a dual 8-pin power supply NVLink, which can provide more efficient SLI and bandwidth. The card still has dual 8pin power connectors, plus 75W on the PCIe, for a total power of 375W; a bit much for a TGP of 215W and only a single 8pin to meet usage. Output interface, the iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X OC and the public version of the product have three DisplayPort interfaces, an HDMI interface, and a USB-C power supply interface. For easy BIOS switching, a one-button overclocking button is also mounted on the graphics card’s bezel.
Internal disassembly of a graphics card The iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X OC graphics card employs a non-public PCB design, and the entire PCB design is quite neat. The PCB code is PG180HWA, which is the same as the PCB model of the iGame RTX 2080 Vulcan X OC, and the GPU is codenamed TU104-410, which is manufactured using TSMC’s 12nm process and packaged in Taiwan. It should be noted that some of the GPUs are packaged in finished Korea, so the core will bear the Korea logo. The graphics memory is Micron’s GDDR6, with a frequency of 14Gbps, and there are eight of them around the GPU, totaling 8GB of high-speed graphics memory.
The graphics card is powered by a 10 2 phase PCB power supply, with power control implemented by uP9512P. The first ten phases are for GPU power supply, and the last two are for memory power supply, with tantalum capacitors and high polymer capacitors used for input and output filtering.
In addition to three 8cm fans, iGame also outfitted the RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X with four 6mm heatpipes and three 8mm heatpipes, all of which use the Fin Weld process in conjunction with the cooling fins.

Graphics card: iGame RTX 2070 SUPER Vulcan X OC Testing software and games: 3DMark11, Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Grand Theft Auto 5. The RTX 2070 SUPER outperforms the RTX 2070. The performance boost comes from two sources: the CUDA count increased from 2304 to 2560, resulting in an 11 percent performance boost; the second source is the core frequency increase, especially since the iGame RTX 2070 Vulcan X OC has been pre-overclocked, resulting in a more noticeable performance boost. The 3DMark performance test is divided into five parts: Port Royal, FireStrike Extreme, Fire Strike Ultra, Fire Strike, Time SPY Extreme, Time SP The largest increase in performance is 19%, while the smallest increase is 16%, achieving an increase in volume without raising the price.
I used 1440P resolution and extreme image quality in the Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 test to achieve an average frame rate of 55.2, with a maximum of 62.7 and a minimum of 6.4 fps.
