No, Nvidia isn't making an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER

Don't expect the RTX 2080 Ti to be upgraded

No, Nvidia isn't making an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER

When Nvidia launched their RTX Super series of graphics cards, many wondered if the GPU giant was planning to release RTX 2080 Ti replacement. Over the past few months rumours of Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti Super ran rampant, promising more GDDR6 memory, more memory bandwidth and an increased CUDA core count. 

Today, Tweaktown's Anthony Garreffa has confirmed that Nvidia has no plans to release an RTX 2080 Ti Super graphics card, with Nvidia's Jeff Fisher, the company's senior vice president of Nvidia's PC business, being quoted as saying that there "would not be" an RTX 2080 Ti Super.  

As it stands, Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti has no competition, giving Nvidia little reason to replace or upgrade their gaming flagship. Yes, the graphics card could benefit from more or faster GDDR6 memory, higher clock speeds or an increased core count, all that effort would do little to change the overall GPU market. 

An RTX 2080 Ti Super would become something similar to the Titan RTX, a graphics card which uses a fully enabled TU-102 chip to offer 4608 CUDA cores, 24GB of GDDR6 memory over a 384-bit memory bus. In a way, the RTX 2080 Ti Super already exists, but the problem is that it's called the RTX Titan and costs £2399.

To create an RTX 2080 Ti Super, Nvidia would have to utilise more of TU-102's available memory controller and CUDA cores, parts which are inactive within the RTX 2080 Ti. To do this Nvidia would need to use higher quality TU-102 GPU dies, which may not be an option depending on how good Nvidia's yields. TU-102 is the Nvidia's largest Turing GPU dies.

As things stand, Nvidia has no plans to release an RTX 2080 Ti Super graphics card, but that doesn't mean that Nvidia couldn't change their mind. The company could easily create a fully enabled TU-102 graphics card and call it the RTX 2080 Ti Super, but given the existence of the Titan RTX, it seems unlikely that Nvidia would use such high-quality silicon to create a lower-margin product.

While I agree with the overall statement... LOL, you're using TweakTown as a source?Quote

Yeah, I don't like using them as a source due to their history of unreliability, but I know for a fact that he was at the Super briefing.Quote

There is little point in NVidia producing a super version of the 2080 Ti as it would be very expensive for very little performance increase.

They would also have the problem of finding a use for TU102 chips that do not make the grade for cards that use the full fat version.Quote

This comes out one day after AMD confirm there won't be a big Navi yet.

I bet they would have otherwise.Quote

The conference where this question was answered was a couple of weeks ago, while AMD have not revealed any further information regarding future Navi yet since 5700's launch. The article is in response to recent forum rumours of a new Ti Super I think, NVidia would have known technical limitations of non-EUV 7nm processes means AMD couldn't have a true big die competitor this year very long(years) ago.Quote
