Update | Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mobile GPU listed on Asus slide but remains missing in action
Update April 7: Asus has provided Notebookcheck with a short statement in regard to this article: "We want to clarify that there will be no RTX 2060 Super mobile GPU."
The midrange Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU has been a popular choice among gamers who wanted to enjoy the technology that is only found in an RTX-branded product and also comes at an affordable price. So with the knowledge that Nvidia was preparing to release RTX Super Mobile products for RTX Super laptops, there would have been many looking forward to a GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mobile part that offered a bit more bang for not too much more buck. But it currently seems to be missing in action.
At the moment, mobile gamers will be able to choose a laptop that either sports a regular GeForce RTX 2060 or a power-saving GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q as found in the brand-new Ryzen-based Zephyrus 14…and that’s it for the RTX 20 series mobile midrange. At the high-end of the scale there are Super versions (regular and Max-Q variants) of both the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. But a slide shared by HardwareUnboxed shows that Asus was convinced there would be an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mobile GPU, as there are even specifications listed for the MIA part.
According to Asus, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Mobile GPU would have had 2,176 CUDA cores, 1,305 MHz base clock, 1,485 MHz boost clock, 8 GB memory buffer, and 14,000 MHz memory speed. It’s definitely an attractive bump up from the vanilla RTX 2060 mobile chip, and with those specs the apparently non-existent RTX 2060 Super Mobile would have stood up very nicely in comparison to its desktop counterpart. It’s possible the existence of the RTX 2060 Mobile Max-Q variant has put a block on any RTX 2060 Super Mobile release for the time being, but it might make a welcome appearance at some point in the future.
