GeForce RTX 3070 Super and RTX 3080 Super graphics cards could be in the works as Nvidia looks to further expand the Ampere-based series
It all started with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 blowing everyone away with their superlative performances and generational improvements, and now it appears the GeForce RTX 30 series is going to expand to cover almost every tiny niche possible. We already have the desktop versions of the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti joining the family, and a new rumor has led to speculation that Super variants are incoming, possibly an RTX 3070 Super and RTX 3080 Super.
Obviously, it’s very early days at the moment so there are no specs available for these currently mythical beasts, although VideoCardz reckons the RTX 3070 Super will feature a GA103 GPU and offer a 256-bit memory bus while the beefier RTX 3080 Super will possibly be fitted with a GA102 GPU and dazzle gamers with a 384-bit interface. The Super variants will fill the small gap between regular card models and their souped-up Ti variants.
Along with mobile versions of the RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 appearing here and there, it’s believed Nvidia is also preparing to unveil a desktop GeForce RTX 3060 card and an RTX 3080 Ti part. On top of those, there are also mentions to be found of an RTX 3050, RTX 3050 Ti, and an RTX 3070 Ti. Plus it seems a reasonable bet to believe there will be more Super models winging their way into the GeForce RTX 30 series at some point in the near future.
I know there are some new SKUs recently, but I don't know their names yet, maybe 3070 Super and 3080 Super.— kopite7kimi (@kopite7kimi) December 31, 2020
