NVIDIA SUPER is real: leaked dates and new GPUs, where the RTX 2060 Super will be an RTX 2070.
The rumors seem to be confirmed little by little and as we know today, NVIDIA SUPER will be real. The first rumors referred to three of the four RTX models already on sale, but today this rises to five new graphics cards with the SUPER name. This shows that NVIDIA sees AMD as a threat and is going to put all the meat on the grill by regenerating the series.
Prices and offers have already begun to be seen with ASUS in the lead
We have just published the news with the most outstanding offers both on PCComponentes and on Amazon, where the protagonist in most cases is ASUS. It seems that it is the first brand that wants to empty stock in our country to make room for what NVIDIA brings for this end of the year.
When the RTX was presented back in the past year, we were already talking about a kind of refresh for the range and 20 series, where it would come from Micron or Samsung with their new GDDR6. This new series has already been officially confirmed as SUPER, but the models as such have not been revealed, so the names we will choose will be based on the existing models.
Apparently, we will have five models in total: RTX 2080 Ti SUPER, RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 Ti SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER, where the novelty is undoubtedly the two Ti versions.
Starting with the RTX 2080 Ti SUPER of which nothing was known until today, said GPU will include a totally new chip, not taking advantage of those of the Quadro ranges, but it will arrive unlocked in terms of potential. This means that the 300 watt TDP can be reached and even exceeded by extreme custom models, especially due to the higher number of Shaders and the faster GDDR6.
From what sources are saying, it’s expected to be quite a bit faster than the original RTX 2080 Ti, where pricing rumors don’t seem to hold up too strongly with this new model, as the prospect of cost sustainability starts to falter. , and may be even higher. What does seem to be confirmed is that it will be the last model to arrive, later than his sisters.
RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 Ti SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2060 SUPER
As for the RTX 2080 SUPER, apparently it would arrive with a different shader count than the original and that would place it in a middle ground between its original version and the RTX 2080 Ti. Apparently, the 20-series models we have for sale do not include the best components that NVIDIA could put together, as has happened with GDDR6 VRAM.
This SUPER range will put an end to this, since, for example, there will be no more distinctions between A and A1 chips for overclocking, nor different VRMs with lower quality and VRAM, everything seems to be playing for one card: maximum performance.
In this regard, the RTX 2080 SUPER will increase its VRAM to 11 GB, but it will not be the complete TU102 chip.
The RTX 2070 Ti will occupy the expected place between the RTX 2080 SUPER and the RTX 2070 SUPER, where it will have 8 GB of GDDR6 and will have a delayed launch like the RTX 2080 Ti SUPER.
The RTX 2070 SUPER, on the other hand, will opt for the complete TU104 chip, but without overclocking as standard, where it will maintain the 8 GB of GDDR6, where there is also speculation of a new price above that of the original RTX 2070.
Instead, the RTX 2060 SUPER will make the jump to the TU104 unlocked and not overclocked, but with 8 GB of VRAM, so the performance jump seems obvious, since we are talking about an RTX 2070 in disguise.
The war between AMD and NVIDIA has just begun
The reality is that the Radeon VII has gone unnoticed by AMD’s HOF. Its performance was competent, but now it is marred by an RX 5700 XT that can be very close and with much lower consumption and price, so it is possible that its sales are small and it will have to readjust prices, if AMD can adjust them. more clear.
NVIDIA will have to do the same with its 20 series if it wants manufacturers to lower the price and clean up their stock of GPUs, which we are already seeing, because once the SUPER and Navi series are in stores, or the price is attractive or few will make the leap to an already veteran model but which is still expensive.
This leaves the consumer as the great beneficiary if the yields finally fall within the expected parameters, since if NVIDIA increases its performance it is possible that AMD will find itself competing more with the original 20 series than with the new SUPER, where its rival apparently it would be the new RTX 2060 SUPER.
In any case, welcome is the competition.
