Another portion of leaks concerning Nvidia RTX Super cards has appeared on the web. As reported by Wcftech.com, the RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super models may be officially announced on June 21 and will be available for sale in mid-July. We've also seen their suggested prices.
What's under the hood?
Let's start with the RTX 2080 Super, the heart of which will be the TU104-450 chip. In fact, it is supposed to be a TU102 chip (used in the RTX 2080 Ti) in a basic, not overclocked version and changed to work with less VRAM. Rumors also suggest that it will be sold to other manufacturers without a standard kit that included memory and power section. This is to give more room for manufacturers of custom design cards. The suggested price for the RTX 2080 Super card is $799. This is the same price with which the RTX 2080 debuted and almost $200 lower than the price of RTX 2080 Ti.
The RTX 2070 Super is to be based on the TU104-410-A1 chip, which (as TU104-400-A1) used to power the standard version of the RTX 2080 card. The refreshed model will cost $599 , which makes it nearly $100 cheaper than the RTX 2080 and equal to the price of the RTX 2070 OC version, which will become completely uneconomical in such case.
The RTX 2060 Super will be built on a TU106-410 chip, which we have seen so far in the standard version of the RTX 2070 card. The price of the weakest model in the Super series was set at $429 and as the only one it will be more expensive than its original version, because the RTX 2060 on the day of release costed $349. However, it may be that the higher price will be compensated for by efficiency.
It seems that Nvidia wants to show AMD who is in charge of the GPU market. This is a good situation for consumers, because we should, as a result, pay less for greater efficiency. We can only wait for the official information from the manufacturer.
