Nvidia’s RTX SUPER review dates leak – It’s designed to undermine Navi’s launch

Rumours surrounding Nvidia’s RTX “Super” series of graphics cards have been circulating for a while now, but it seems that review day is quickly approaching, at least for the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super.

A report from Videocardz has claimed that Nvidia plans to announce their RTX Super (S) series of graphics cards on July 2nd with RTX 2080 S, RTX 2070 S and RTX 2060 S GPU models. Leaked specifications for these graphics cards are available below. 

Nvidia’s RTX 2060 S and RTX 2070 S are both set to have their review embargos lift on July 2nd, five days before the launch of AMD’s Radeon Navi 5700 series graphics cards, which are designed to compete with Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 graphics cards. 

If true, this move is designed to target AMD’s Radeon Navi launch by adding two stronger offerings to their product stack, while preventing many reviewers from having comparison data between the RTX Super series and Radeon’s 7nm Navi lineup. With both Zen 2 and Navi landing on 7/7, many PC hardware reviewers won’t have the time to test everything thoroughly. 

Videocardz has also claimed that reviews for custom RTX 20 Superseries cards will go live on July 9th, preventing Nvidia’s AIB partners from getting review coverage at the same time as Nvidia’s Founders Edition cards. At this time it is unknown when Nvidia’s RTX Super series of graphics cards will hit retail. 

The review date for Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Super graphics card is not known at this time, aside from being “later in July”. This makes sense, as the RTX 2080 Super won’t compete with AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 series of graphics cards. If these rumours are true, see the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super launch for what it is, an attempt to steam Navi’s thunder before it’s launch on 7/7.
