NVIDIA to revive GeForce RTX 2070 to counter the Radeon RX 5700 XT?
NVIDIA has discontinued the GeForce RTX 2070 when they launched the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER. With the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER coming so close to the GeForce RTX 2070, there’s no reason for it to continue existing anyway. But it seems it will be brought back from the dead.
The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER which was destined to go head-to-head against the Radeon RX 5700 XT, is allegedly being outsold by the AMD card substantially enough that NVIDIA will have to re-release the GeForce RTX 2070.
This information was apparently shared with GamersNexus from NVIDIA’s AIB partners. The partners have also reportedly been able to order a new supply of GeForce RTX 2070 chips to slap onto their cards.
It might have something to do with the Radeon RX 5700 XT outperforming the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER while coming in at the same price point. Then there’s the fact that AMD’s card touts a bigger number. In the world of tech, we know that bigger = better.
The GeForce RTX 2070 will have to come in at a price point that will make the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER redundant, because otherwise there’s no way it will be competitive against the Radeon RX 5700 XT which is priced on par with the RTX 2060 SUPER. Will the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER be rendered irrelevant just four months after its introduction?
Pokdepinion: Well, they could have just dropped the GeForce RTX 2070 to GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER prices in the very beginning…
