NVIDIA RTX 20 Super series to launch in mid-July
It looks like people eagerly anticipating the GeForce RTX 20 Super series will have to wait a while yet before they get their hands on one. While sources close to Videocardz and Wccftech are suggesting that NVIDIA will announce its refreshed RTX 20 Desktop GPUs next week, the former has been passed on information that the company has only just informed Add-in-Board (AIB) partners like ASUS, EVGA and XFX about RTX 20 Super cards.
Hence, an immediate launch following next week's likely announcement is out of the question with AIBs needing to finalise their designs, with NVIDIA pushing the launch date to mid-July. Igor Wallossek at Tom's Hardware Germany has also received information confirming the specifications of the three RTX 20 Super cards that NVIDIA will initially launch. No specifications have changed since our report last week except that the memory bus width has also been confirmed. The specifications for the three cards are as follows:
|GPU||Chipset||CUDA Cores||VRAM||VRAM speed||Memory bus|
|GeForce RTX 2060 Super||TU106-410||2,176||8 GB||14 Gbps||256-bit|
|GeForce RTX 2070S Super||TU104-410||2,560||8 GB||14 Gbps||256-bit|
|GeForce RTX 2080S Super||TU104-450||3,072||8 GB||16 Gbps||256-bit|
Moreover, while pricing is still unconfirmed at this stage, multiple sources claim that NVIDIA will launch the RTX 20 Super series at basically the same prices that it did with its original RTX 20 series, as we reported a few days ago too. Correspondingly, prices will start at approximately US$349 for the RTX 2060 Super before rising to US$499 for the RTX 2070 Super and US$699 for the RTX 2080 Super. Current RTX 20 series cards should get cheaper as a result, but to what degree is only speculative at this stage.
