In addition to announcing the GeForce RTX SUPER mobile cards earlier this month, Nvidia has quietly launched updated versions of the original GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2070 cards that use less GDR6 memory, similar to the new RTX Super cards.
In addition to the obvious differences in the structural configuration of the core, the RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2070 Super offer two major innovations. First of all, they have low-voltage GDDR6 memories that operate at 1.25 V instead of 1.35 V as before. Secondly, their power regulator allows synchronization with the central processor and setting a common energy budget for the CPU and GPU.
Similar improvements can be found not only in new super, but also older systems, which have now been refreshed.
- GeForce RTX 2070 Refresh – The card comes with 2304 CUDA cores and 6 GB GDDR6 memory with up to 1485MHz frequency and 115W power consumption, similar to the original model.
- GeForce RTX 2060 Refresh – The card will come with 1920 CUDA cores and 6 GB GDDR6 memory with a frequency of up to 1285MHz and increased electrical consumption of 115W, instead of 90W in the original model.

GeForce RTX 2070 (N18-G1R) and GeForce RTX 2060 (N18E-G1-B), because we are talking about them here, also have energy-saving GDDR6. In addition, the latter has significantly increased the permissible power limit, namely from 80 to 115 W. According to information available on the network, this translates into higher clock frequencies in the turbo mode.
And how do corrected cards recognize? – you will ask. You need to verify the graphic core ID. Older versions are N18E-G2 as well as N18E-G1. The newer ones, however, as already mentioned, respectively, N18-G1R and N18E-G1-B.
