Opinion | INNO3D and MSI join Gigabyte in the oddest graphics card release of 2020, GDDR5 shortage or not

Bemused why AIBs are now releasing GDDR6 versions of the GTX 1650? Well, NVIDIA has the answer, and its reasoning suggests that it has forgotten that it released the GTX 1650 SUPER.

Exclusive first benchmarks of NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super Mobile show appreciable gains over the RTX 2070 Mobile, new RTX 2060 Mobile leads the RTX 2070 Max-Q

We have exclusively obtained the first 3DMark synthetic benchmark results of NVIDIA's newly announced RTX 2070 Super and the new RTX 2060 Mobile GPUs. We find that the RTX 2070 Super Mobile trails behind the desktop RTX 2070 Super by about 10% overall. Interestingly, we find the new RTX 2060 Mobile to be appreciably faster in most tests compared to the original version and even outpacing the RTX 2070 Max-Q ever so slightly.

Comet Lake-H and RTX 20 SUPER laptops will be coming to market later this year. (Image source: NVIDIA)The Comet Lake-H (CML-H) series will be arriving in laptops later this year, likely with a choice between several new RTX 20 SUPER series GPUs. A CML-H processor and an RTX 20 SUPER GPU will undoubtedly be a powerful combination, as a recent 3DMark listing has demonstrated.  Spotted by @_rogame, a Core i9-10880H and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER-powered machine has made its way onto the popular benchmarking website, giving us an idea of what the chips will be capable.  Firstly, the listing reports that the Core i9-10880H has a 2.3 GHz base clock, the same as the Core i9-9880H. However, Intel is allowing the former to reach 5.0 GHz according to 3DMark, a 200 MHz boost over the Core i9-9880H.  Meanwhile, the listing states that the RTX 2070 SUPER can operate at between 1,140 MHz and 1,750 MHz. On the one hand, this would mean that the GPU has a lower base clock than its predecessor. On the other hand, the RTX 2070 SUPER peaks at 310 MHz higher than the RTX 2070 does. The RTX 2070 SUPER still has 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM running at 14 Gbps, though.  @_rogame claims that the unnamed laptop scored 8,337 points in Time Spy, 20,760 points in Fire Strike and 27,765 points in 3DMark 11 Performance. For context, this puts the device within striking distance of the Core i9-9980HK and RTX 2080 Max-Q powered Alienware m17 R2 that we reviewed last month. The results put the RTX 2070 SUPER well ahead of the average of RTX 2070-powered laptops that we have reviewed, too.  Getting the most from a 45 W CPU and a 115 W GPU will require a big cooling system, though. Hence, while we may see the RTX 2070 SUPER in 15.6-inch machines later this year, do not be surprised to see the GPU and Core i9 CML-H CPUs restricted to 17-inch machines, instead.

Unnamed laptop appears on 3DMark with a 5 GHz Intel Core i9-10880H and a 115 W NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
