The unreleased Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards have all entered the Final Fantasy XV benchmark database. The results reportedly show the GeForce RTX 2070 Super on top.
The GeForce RTX 20-series Super graphics card are the alleged refreshed versions of Nvidia's normal counterparts to face AMD's Navi offerings. For the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, in particular, Nvidia seemingly swapped the Turing TU106 die, which was used in the original RTX 2070, to the larger TU104 die that's found inside the RTX 2080. This little silicon swap has allowed Nvidia to offer higher performance on the RTX 2070 Super.

*Data in chart not confirmed
The GeForce RTX 2070 Super purportedly employs 40 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), which, consequently means it will arrive with 2,560 CUDA cores, 320 Tensor cores, 40 RT cores, and 160 texture mapping units (TMUs). If we compare the RTX 2070 Super to the RTX 2070, we're looking at an 11.11% increase in CUDA cores. Nvidia didn't make any changes to memory speeds or configuration.
The Final Fantasy XV benchmark results correspond to the 2560x1440 resolution with the High-Quality graphic present. It should be taken into consideration that test systems' specifications and testing environment are unknown to us. Additionally, Nvidia was part of Final Fantasy XV's development, so the title favors the Green team. With everything considered, take the numbers with a bit of salt.
The RTX 2070 Super performs 13.51% faster than the RTX 2070. It falls just 3.72% short of catching up to last generation's flagship, the GTX 1080 Ti. In comparison to its AMD rivals, the RTX 2070 Super is 38.48% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. The Final Fantasy XV benchmark is often criticized for its accuracy, and with good reason. Apparently, the Radeon VII is even slower than the Radeon RX 5700. Our own review has shown that the Radeon VII's performance is closer to the RTX 2080 so there's no way it'll fall behind an RX 5700 especially when AMD has stated that the RX 5700's rival is the RTX 2060.
Once again, you shouldn't judge a book by the first page. Wait for complete reviews of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 before picking them of them up.
This also kills the $670 Vega VII which is about 1080ti performance levels. I wonder what will happen to the 2080 which sits at similar performance and $700. $100 is a big jump for that small performance increase.
Last gen sales ratio was >~4:1 at this price point (favoring NVIDIA) I think the ratio will be even more lopsided this gen.
BTW: Amazon took down the 2070 Super and 2060 Super links.
Just look at where the Radeon VII appears in that chart, down below the 1660 Ti. In reality though, the VII performs similar to a 1080 Ti on average, or around 50% faster than a 1660 Ti. That should be a red flag to anyone looking at this data that the results are complete nonsense.
It's possible that the 2070 Super could end up slightly faster than a 5700XT, but there is no way the difference would be anywhere near as large as what's shown here.
The RTX lineup has been around for several months, so the drivers are fully mature.
Still, AMD will need to lower their price shortly after launch to compete with the Nvidia paper launch.
