Alleged Nvidia RTX 30 SUPER series specifications leak

It looks like Nvidia has faster RTX 30 series GPUs on the horizon

Is this Nvidia's plan for RTX 3090 Ti/Super? Thoughts on GDDR6X

Four RTX 30 SUPER series GPU SKUs leak with confusing specifications

Rumour has it that Nvidia is working on RTX 30 SUPER desktop graphics cards alongside a reported RTX SUPER Mobile refresh. Some have claimed that these new products will be revealed in early 2022, launching in the same timeframe as Intel's ARC series graphics cards. 

If these SKU names and specifications from @kopite7kimi are accurate, most of Nvidia's RTX 30 SUPER series will only offer gamers minor performance upgrades over their RTX 30 series counterparts, primarily offering gamers more or faster memory and a moderate increase in CUDA core count. The only major exception being the RTX 3060 SUPER, which features a massive rise in CUDA core count over the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti.  

Below are the specifications of Nvidia's rumoured RTX 30 SUPER lineup, 

 CUDA CoresMemory Config
RTX 3090 Super10,75224GB of GDDR6X on a 384-bit bus
RTX 309010,49624GB of GDDR6X on a 384-bit bus
RTX 3080 Ti10,24012GB of GDDR6X on a 384-bit bus
RTX 3080 Super8,96012GB of GDDR6X on a 384-bit bus
RTX 3080 8,70410GB of GDDR6X on a 320-bit bus
RTX 3070 Ti 6,1448GB of GDDR6X on a 256-bit bus
RTX 3070 Super5,8888GB of GDDR6X on a 256-bit bus
RTX 30705,8888 GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit bus
RTX 3060 SUPER5,63212GB of GDDR6X on a 192-bit bus
RTX 3060 Ti4,8648GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit bus
RTX 30603,58412GB of GDDR6 on a 192-bit bus

 
Nvidia's RTX 3060 SUPER is Nvidia's killer RTX 30 SUPER series GPU

With Intel's ARC Alchemist series GPUs allegedly targeting Nvidia's RTX 3070 graphics card and AMD's RX 6700 XT (leaked slides here), it makes sense for Nvidia to strengthen that area of their RTX 30 series product line. 

Nvidia's RTX 3070 Super appears to be designed to allow the company's partners to utilise GDDR6 and GDDR6X memory to create RTX 3070-class products, potentially allowing Nvidia to create more RTX 3070 series stock for consumers. Beyond that, Nvidia's RTX 3060 SUPER should deliver performance that's within the same ballpark at a lower price, potentially undercutting Intel's ARC series graphics cards. 

We have already seen Nvidia use similar tactics in the past, launching their GTX 1070 Ti in response to AMD's RX Vega 56 and their RTX 20 SUPER series after AMD's RDNA 1/Navi product launch. If the tactic works, why wouldn't Nvidia reuse it against Intel? 

With 5632 CUDA cores, Nvidia's RTX 3060 SUPER will become a popular product for many gamers, offering users plenty of VRAM with its 12GB frame buffer and almost as many CUDA cores as an RTX 3070. Assuming that this graphics card isn't bandwidth limited, this product will be the highlight of Nvidia's RTX 30 SUPER series. 


Alleged Nvidia RTX 30 SUPER series specifications leak

 
The downside of Nvidia's RTX 30 Super plans would make Nvidia's product stack even more confusing. PC gamers already have to decide between Ti and non-TI GPU models, and soon Nvidia might be adding new SUPER series SKUs into the mix. What's worse is that many of these new SKUs will deliver nigh-identical performance to their predecessors.

Doesn't really come as a surprise as I expected them to follow suit from their 2000 series Supers, The only new addition really is the 3090 Super with full GA102 die, That's going to be one expensive bit of kit.Quote

It will be as useless as the Titan Z.Quote

At this point who cares, just some new cards people wont be able to get a hold of even if they're willing to pay the stupid prices being asked.Quote

Titan Z actually had good double precision performance for various workloads that leveraged FP64, Although I think it was around 2015/16 Nvidia released an update to a CUDA software package which crippled the cards FP64 performance which meant from then on if you wanted the latest updates to software functionality, Features etc... you had to buy Quadro.

Right now it's a nice paperweight Quote

Peace
If the rumoured specs are true, then it's as confusing at it can get...


Why is it Base < Super < Ti for all of them but the 60? Why does the 60S return to the 192-bit bus? I feel like the 60S should be the 60Ti and vice versa.


Also, there HAS to be some error in either the table or the tweet, because the tweet says the 60S has 12GB of GDDR6 without the X while the table has the 60S listed with GGDR6X.Quote
