NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 SUPER Lineup Rumored Specs Leak Out – RTX 2080 Super With 3072 Cores, RTX 2070 With 2560 Cores, RTX 2060 With 2176 Cores & 8 GB VRAM
NVIDIA has been super secretive about their 'SUPER' teaser so far but it looks like the rumor mill has just leaked the specifications of three graphics cards that are allegedly part of the GeForce RTX 20 SUPER series family.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 'SUPER' Lineup Allegedly Launching in July - Specs For RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER & RTX 2060 SUPER Leak Out
The latest information comes from Chinese 'Weibo' forums where a user has posted what seems to be alleged specifications of at least three NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 'SUPER' series cards. The GeForce RTX 20 series refresh has been a hot topic since NVIDIA posted their 'SUPER' teaser on Twitter, but it looks like they didn't follow up on it, so now the rumor mill is in full steam, leaking out specifications for the upcoming lineup.
The three new graphics cards are said to be called NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, and the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER. We have previously heard about the GeForce RTX 2070 Ti which leaked a few days ago but what I can make out from the naming schemes is that the final one is still not confirmed so let's just use the SUPER tag to differentiate the refreshed lineup for now.
The top of the stack in the 'SUPER' lineup seems to be the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER which is going to feature the full TU104 GPU die known as TU104-450. The chip will feature 3072 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM running at 16 Gbps and a 256-bit bus. The pricing is said to replace what the RTX 2080 currently costs while the original RTX 2080 would take a price drop to around 4000 (Chinese) Yen which is about $549-$600 US which should be a $100 US drop in cost and what we have been hearing for a while.
The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is said to feature pretty much the same specifications that we posted a few days ago which would be 2560 CUDA Cores and 8 GB (14 Gbps) memory. The specific chip is said to be the TU104-410 GPU. The most interesting part is probably the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER that is said to feature the full TU106-410 GPU.
The difference between the current RTX 2060 & the Super one will not only be the higher core count of 2176 CUDA Cores but it is also rumored to feature a higher 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM along a 256-bit bus instead of 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM along a 192-bit bus. It is possible with TU106 since the full GPU die does allow for a 256-bit wide bus interface and 36 SMs. The RTX 2060 SUPER still won't utilize the full 36 SMs that the TU106 die has but rather utilize two less SM units (34).
This is definitely interesting as a rumor but I think it's still too early to tell whether this is legit or not. If the launch is actually taking place in July, then NVIDIA may have an event planned for such a big announcement. It also makes us wonder if there will be an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER with a full GPU (TU102) die and higher VRAM at 16 Gbps. NVIDIA already has the flagship throne to themselves, but I think enthusiasts would love to have even more performance at the same price point.
