better core clock and Effective Memory Clock but more expensive

better boost clock and costs about 200 less

Hello,

 

The 2080S is better :

wow,

 

that's the closest i've ever seen a 2070 and 2080 super in terms of performance.

 

but i would still go with the 2080, because although the 2070 super does have a higher boost clock, if you look at the comments for it, some mention their boost clock goes over said boost clock, and im not sure a GIGABYTE 2080 super will actually only be able to clock up to 1805 before BSODing. 

 

so yeah 2080. you can probably actually overclock it to the same speed as the 2070.

 

 

BIG EDIT : so in one of the comments of the 2080 super, one guy has said his 2080 super has boost clocked to over 2k GHZ without him even doing anything, so yeah DEFINITELY THE 2080 SUPER.
