EVGA Expands it’s KO Range to the Nvidia 2070/2080 Super!
Mike Sanders / 6 months ago
Shortly prior to the launch of the AMD 5600XT, EVGA attempted to throw a spanner in the works by announcing their Nvidia 2060 Super KO. Whether they succeeded in stealing any of the thunder is, if we’re being honest, a little unclear. It couldn’t be doubted though that in terms of presentation, it was a damn good looking GPU.
Well, in proving that the plan to give this series a run, EVGA has now announced the launch of the 2070 and 2080 Super under its KO branding.
EVGA 2070/2080 SUPER KO
Offered as a less-expensive alternative to the main series of ‘Super’ GPUs, EVGA has made a few cuts in the design. For example, these graphics cards do not have a backplate and the heatsink does (at least in the images) appear to be slightly smaller.
Despite that though, the specifications and MSRP make them a very attractive proposition!
- EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER KO – 2560 CUDA cores, 1770 MHz Boost Clock, 8 GB GDDR6 memory @ 14 GHz over a 256-bit bus) – $499.99
- EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER KO – 3072 CUDA cores, 1815 MHz Boost Clock, 8 GB GDDR6 memory @ 15.5 GHz over a 256-bit bus – $699.99
What Do We Think?
Based on the MSRP, these new EVGA ‘Super’ KO graphics cards are, without a doubt, some of the best prices we’ve seen these GPUs go for. As such, if you are in the market for a hefty graphics card and can accept a little bit of (honestly, probably very incidental) price-cutting in the design then they seem to be one of the best options around!
