Nvidia RTX Super graphics cards will launch for a higher price than their current RTX 20-series counterparts, insider sources suggest. Rumour has it that the supercharged RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2070 Super will release very soon for $799 and $599, respectively. That’s the same price as the factory overclocked Founder’s Editions Nvidia first announced last August, and potentially great news for AMD.
Nvidia has said that its Turing GPU architecture “remains the most power efficient GPU on the planet at 12nm”, asserting that its architecture is still superior to AMD’s in performance per watt. That’s despite the red team’s jump to the latest and greatest 7nm process node from TSMC with AMD RX 5700 GPUs – a move that net the RDNA architecture greater power efficiency.
Nvidia’s RTX 2060 Super will be given a full 8GB of GDDR6 and a GPU upgrade to give it a better chance of taking on the new AMD RX 5700 in a proper head-to-head battle. That’s the noise coming out of E3 via everyone’s favourite leaky website, WCCFTech.
Something Super this way comes… Yes, it’s incoming Nvidia GPU speculation time as the Eurasian Economic Commission’s product notification page is once more offering up a few little tidbits about some imminent graphics card hardware. The registration notification for a new Nvidia graphics processor came in on May 23, but has recently surfaced via the usual Twitter sources.
Over at an E3 Nvidia wanted to remind journalists, fans, and gamers that it has game image sharpening tools and latency reduction functionality available within the GeForce settings, which it believes offer some parity with AMD’s latest technologies.
Cyberpunk 2077 has been confirmed with real-time ray tracing support at launch. Powered by Nvidia’s RTX 20-series graphics cards, the futuristic RPG’s stunning neon world will utilise the Turing architecture’s dedicated RT and Tensor Cores to deliver real-time accurate, more realistic lighting, joining other major upcoming titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Wolfenstein Youngblood, and Watchdogs Legion in the RTX club.
Nvidia’s “something super” is looking ever more like it is going to be new RTX hardware, as UL has just dropped an update for its ray tracing specific Port Royal benchmark “to improve compatibility with upcoming hardware.” Now we know that AMD’s Navi is coming soon, and will get an airing at E3 next week, but team Radeon is only just gearing up to talk about its ray tracing strategy, not to launch one.
