Hot on the heels of Nvidia’s launch of its GeForce RTX Super series GPUs and its own graphics cards based on them yesterday, the company’s partner brands have begun announcing their own versions with custom coolers and factory overclocking in some cases. Listings for new graphics cards based on the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super have begun to appear online, and companies have shown off their products ahead of the expected July 9 sale date.
