Nvidia Super

Since it was teased by Nvidia earlier last month, one of the biggest talking points in the graphics card world at the moment is; what exactly is ‘Super’? – While most speculation has pointed towards it being some form of graphics card refresh of the 20XX series, the tease was vague enough to practically suggest anything.

Well, in a report via Videocardz, we may finally have our answer. ‘Super’ isn’t going to be a refresh of a graphics card… It’s going to be a refresh of the entire 20XX graphics card range!

Nvidia 20XX Range

With an announcement expected before the end of the month, sources believe that Nvidia is set to apply a completely new and separate refresh of the entire 20XX range of graphics cards providing a ‘Super’ alternative.

While specifics are not known, this is largely believed to have two notable differences; a slightly higher clock speed and higher cuda core count. Something that does seem to back up a leak we saw earlier this month.

What Do We Think?

It’s surprising to see Nvidia launch such a significant refresh of their 20XX models. Particularly since it’s only been around 6-8 months since these graphics cards hit the market in the first place! – One suspects that this may be a reaction to the upcoming AMD graphics card range and as such Nvidia may wish to just reassert their dominance.

Think about it though, we’re going to have standard cards, Ti variants and now ‘Supers’! – Well, pending confirmation which, as above, is expected before the end of this month.

    Well to some extent I agree with the fact that nVidia want to direct the attention of users to Team Green camp at the time when Team Red has 2 upcoming VGAs. Granted nothing really special on either side if only talking games.

    Other reason I guess could be fine-tuned Turing architecture. nVidia cannot hide the fact that when first Turings hit the shelves green stock prices were falling like anvil in the middle of ocean. Prices are still ridiculous, performance isn’t ground breaking, cards are really power-hungry for what they offer. Games – basically RTX is just gimmick, rendering – even today there are not many rendering engines which fully support extra cores built-in. There is potential in this architecture, but first batch was clearly rushed to the market. Plethora of cards catching fire is not good advertisement.

    If they add Super price to the refresh it’ll be another debacle.
