Exclusive: Nvidia Super graphics cards for laptops in 2020
Nvidia announced the refresh of the desktop RTX cards in July 2019 as a direct reaction to the AMD RX 5700 series of cards. As there was no direct competitor in the mobile space, Nvidia did not see the need to refresh the mobile chips too. This may change in 2020 as AMD is rumored to offer a mobile RX 5700M. This should slot in between the RTX 2070 and 2080 according to our information.
Similar to the desktop versions, we expect increased shader counts and clock speeds for the new SUPER cards for laptops. Especially the RTX 2060S should offer a good speed bump as the current RTX 2060 was not all that convincing in the line-up (see our article). This can be seen by the TGP number which increases from 90 W in the RTX 2060 to 115 W in the Super version. The new N18P-G61 and G62 versions should counter the Radeon RX 5500M and RX 5300M cards and also position itself against the Intel DG1LP discrete graphics card. The N18E-G62 should be the SUPER variant of the current GTX 1650 and get GDDR6. The N18P-G61, however, is a new GPU that should replace the old Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (Ti). Let the naming fun begin, how about Nvidia GeForce MX1650 SUPER Ti?
As the launch is rumored to be around March 2020, the information is still subject to change. However, with AMD and Intel pushing more into the mobile GPU space, it should get a bit more interesting again. And who knows, maybe Nvidia is also reconsidering its naming-scheme and we will get some RTX 2080M (like AMD did).
