NVIDIA will introduce at least six new GeForce GTX and RTX laptop GPUs next month
NVIDIA's refresh of its laptop GPU lineup seemed fairly simple, until now. Previously, it seemed that the company would release five new GPUs next month, with three RTX SUPER SKUs and two newer versions of the GTX 1650. The RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2080 SUPER would all replace their non-SUPER equivalents, with the GTX 1650 Ti and newer GTX 1650 expected to fill out NVIDIA's midrange offerings.
Now, Wccftech has turned that on its head. Citing a source "located inside NVIDIA", at least six GPUs will arrive at the end of March, with the website stressing that there could be more on the way. We cannot confirm the validity of this for the time being. According to Wccftech, its source has confirmed the following SKUs:
- GeForce GTX 1650 - 4 GB GDDR6
- GeForce GTX 1650 Ti - 4 GB GDDR6
- GeForce RTX 2060 - 6 GB GDDR6
- GeForce RTX 2070 - 8 GB GDDR6
- GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER - 8 GB GDDR6
- GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER - 8 GB GDDR6
The website notes that NVIDIA may market the RTX 2060 as the RTX 2060 SUPER. It claims to have seen documentation that states the new RTX 2060 is based on a new graphics chip, at any rate. By contrast, the RTX 2070 may just be a higher-clocked version of the existing RTX 2070. It did not offer many details on the SUPER editions of the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, though.
Meanwhile, the newer GTX 1650 will replace the GeForce GTX 1050, with the GTX 1650 Ti taking the place of the existing GeForce GTX 1650. Wccftech claims that NVIDIA will introduce these GPUs on March 31, too.
In short, the information supplied to Wccftech contradicts the specifications that we saw last year, although these were preliminary. If there are more than five or six new laptop GPUs are due to arrive next month, then could there be more GTX 16 series cards on the cards too?
