NVIDIA's Entire Super GeForce RTX Turing Lineup Refresh Specs Allegedly Leaked

NVIDIA GeForce RTX Cards
Ever since NVIDIA teased that something "super" was in the wings, the Internet has been buzzing with related leaks and rumors, suggesting that the NVIDIA Studio certification program was not actually the big reveal. One of the prevailing theories is that NVIDIA is readying a refresh of its existing GeForce RTX family. The latest chatter adds more fuel to the speculative fire.

In case you missed it, NVIDIA two weeks ago posted a short video clip from its "NVIDIA GeForce" account on YouTube with the caption, "Something super is coming..." There wasn't much to the 16-second clip—the camera zoomed and panned around what appeared to be a reflective metal plate with the word "Super" stamped on it. Check it out...


That is not much to go on, obviously. However, the rumors have been flying ever since. The most recent one traces back to a post on China's Weibo forum. The usual disclaimer applies (take this with a grain of salt and a pound of skepticism), but according to the post, NVIDIA is planning to release "Super" versions of its GeForce RTX 2080, 2070, and 2060 graphics cards.

Here are the rumored specs of each one...
  • GeForce RTX 2080 Super: 3,072 CUDA cores, TU104-450 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2070 Super: 2,560 CUDA cores, TU104-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2060 Super: 2,176 CUDA cores, TU106-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
If the rumor is true, the new Super variants would sport more CUDA cores than the regular versions that are out now, and depending on the model, additional memory that is clocked faster to boot. Here's how the the Super models stack up against the current models...
  • GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: 4,352 CUDA cores, TU102-300 GPU, 11GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2080 Super: 3,072 CUDA cores, TU104-450 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (16Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2080: 2,944 CUDA cores, TU104-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2070 Super: 2,560 CUDA cores, TU104-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2070: 2,304 CUDA cores, TU106-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2060 Super: 2,176 CUDA cores, TU106-410 GPU, 8GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
  • GeForce RTX 2060: 1,920 CUDA cores, TU106-200 GPU, 6GB GDDR6 (14Gbps)
There's no mention of a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super model, but we've included the regular variant in the above for posterity. As it pertains to the GeForce RTX 2080, the Super version would have more CUDA cores and faster memory (16Gbps instead of 14Gbps), whereas the GeForce RTX 2070 Super would just have more CUDA cores. At the bottom of the stack, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super would get a bump from 6GB to 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

What's also interesting is that the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is said to be using the full TU106-410 GPU. Not only will it have more CUDA cores, but the full TU106-410 GPU supports a wider 256-bit memory bus, up from 192-bit on the regular model.

These new versions would give NVIDIA's RTX lineup a kick in the pants, as it pertains to performance. Nothing has been confirmed, of course, but if these Super editions do come to fruition, they would likely push down pricing of the regular models.

We'll have to wait and see if NVIDIA reveals anything at E3 this month, or perhaps at Gamescom in August.
