Nvidia’s reportedly working on an RTX 2080 Ti Super

Nvidia has released Super versions of every card in its Turing lineup, with the only exceptions being their GTX 1660 Ti and their RTX 2080 Ti. The reasoning behind their lack of a GTX 1660 Ti Super is simple, as it would become a GPU with RTX 2060-class performance without and RTX features, but no such reason exists for the RTX 2080 Ti. 

Rumour has it that Nvidia is working on an RTX 2080 Ti Super graphics card, a GPU with 4,608 CUDA cores, 16Gbps GDDR6 memory, and perhaps higher core clock speeds. Nvidia could also increase the GPU’s memory amount to 12GB with a 384-bit memory bus, assuming that Nvidia sees the need for more memory bandwidth. 

So why would Nvidia create an RTX 2080 Ti Super graphics card? Turing is over a year old at this point, so a new ultra-high-end Turing graphics card seems unnecessary, especially when Radeon’s has no graphics cards that can offer similar performance levels. The only reason why Nvidia would release an RTX 2080 Ti Super is if their next-generation graphics cards aren’t releasing anytime soon. Why release a new gaming flagship when a next-generation architecture is just around the corner? 

So is this RTX 2080 Ti rumour true? Probably not, but if it is, it looks like Nvidia’s next-generation graphics cards aren’t arriving as soon as expected.
