Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti Super is coming in Q1 2020… or, y’know, never

It’s Friday, so let’s have a little unsubstantiated graphics card rumour, shall we? This time it’s the turn of the RTX 2080 Ti Super, an oft-mentioned, regularly scotched GPU release, that this time is being touted for an early 2020 launch because of some perceived delay to the unannounced and unconfirmed Ampere GPUs.

We first saw talk about the upgrade RTX 2080 Ti back before the first shots of the RTX Super generation had been fired. An EEC registration doc seemed to suggest there would be a new card based on the TU102 GPU coming soon, but that hasn’t so far come to pass. Some now-rectified T&Cs from an Inno3D giveaway also ‘leaked’ the existence of a Super version of the top Turing card, but that seemed to be more an error of a confused employee than a genuine leak.

Nvidia, for its part, has categorically stated that there would not be an RTX 2080 Ti Super, so said Jeff Fisher. But what would a senior vp of Nvidia’s PC business know, right? Inevitably even that hasn’t stopped the rumours from rolling along.
