We have received more information on GeForce RTX 20 Super series, which are coming very soon.
GeForce RTX 20 SUPER: Announcement next week?
We cannot confirm whether the date shared by Wccftech (June 21st) is true, but our sources have also referred to next week as a possible announcement of the new series. Nothing out of ordinary is happening on this date, so we are not sure why NVIDIA might have chosen it for the announcement.
What’s important, however, the GeForce RTX 20 Super series will not launch till mid-July. NVIDIA has only just started talking to AIBs about the new series, and the time for a Turing refresh preparation is obviously still required.
We do not expect significant changes to existing custom designs, as all SUPER SKUs will use existing GPUs (just different variants).

We have also been told how new Founders Edition will look like, so here’s an example (a mockup) of RTX 2080 Super:
We have also confirmed the GPU variants that will launch with SUPER series.
The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER will feature Turing TU104-450 GPU. This alone points towards 8GB GDDR6 memory, which for this very SKU will be faster (16 Gbps vs 14 Gbps) than the rest of the RTX stack. At this point, there is no doubt that this model will have all CUDA cores enabled (3072 to be exact).
Meanwhile, the RTX 2070, which was used by AMD during Radeon RX 5700 XT presentation, will receive a faster variant with an additional 256 CUDA cores. This card will be powered by TU104-410 GPU.
The RTX 2060 Super will basically be a cut-down version of RTX 2070 non-Super, featuring TU106-410 GPU with full 256-bit memory bus. This means 8GB GDDR6 memory, which is a 2GB more than RTX 2060 non-Super.
To give credit where it’s due, Igor Wallossek from Tom’s Hardware Germany was the first to report the correct variants:
The full series will look like this:
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 (SUPER) Series|
|GPU||CUDA Cores||Memory Type||Memory Speed|
|GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER||TU104-450|
|GeForce RTX 2080||TU104-400|
|GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER||TU104-410|
|GeForce RTX 2070||TU106-400|
|GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER||TU106-410|
|GeForce RTX 2060||TU106-200|
We are in the process of confirming the pricing details, but it appears that RTX 20 Super will basically get RTX 20 Non-Super MSRP’s while the former will receive a price cut.
