NVIDIA told me at E3 2019 during the GeForce RTX SUPER unveiling that there would NOT be a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER, but according to the latest rumors it appears that the RTX 2080 Ti SUPER is really coming and it'll be a BEAST.
The latest rumors are coming from kopite7kimi on Twitter, who has leaked out other information on the previous RTX SUPER and GTX 16 graphics cards from NVIDIA. The new rumor pegs up some specs on the card with NVIDIA reportedly using the full Turing TU102 GPU with a mean 4608 CUDA cores, 576 tensor cores, 72 RT cores, 288 texture units, and 96 ROPs and even-faster 16Gbps GDDR6 memory.
We should expect NVIDIA to go above and beyond with the amount of GDDR6, with the non-SUPER GeForce RTX 2080 Ti having 11GB of GDDR6 the new purported RTX 2080 Ti could have 11-16GB of GDDR6. I would like to see it with 12GB minimum, but rather 16GB -- it provides a nice buffer between the insane 24GB of GDDR6 on the flagship TITAN RTX.
Now while performance would be quite beasty on the purported GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER, the biggest question is going to be pricing. AMD has absolutely nothing to come even close to this for the next 4-6 months at a minimum, short of a huge surprise -- so we could see $999-$1199 price on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER.
NVIDIA's flagship TITAN RTX costs $2499 with its 24GB of GDDR6... meaning NVIDIA could even offer two variants:
- GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER with 12GB GDDR6 - $1199
- GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SUPER with 16GB GDDR6 - $1499
What do you think about that?
