Rumored Turing flagship RTX 2080 Ti SUPER to Feature a Full TU 102 die: Expect CES 2020 Launch

The SUPER variant of the flagship graphics card from Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 2080Ti, is probably the most debated card from the Turing family. Even the leaks had their ups and downs, sometimes suggesting that Nvidia may not release the Super flagship GPU. Nevertheless, the famous whistleblower kopite7kimi just leaked information that may confirm that the alleged graphics card is indeed in the pipelines. Moreover, he also covers the specifications and the graphics card, which adds to the credibility of the leak.

The tweet stated that the GeForce RTX 2080Ti SUPER would feature a full TU 102 die, which was exclusive to the Titan RTX graphics card. It means the alleged graphics card will have “almost” THE SAME specifications as the workstation graphics card that costs $2500. Coming to the core configuration, 4608 CUDA Cores, 576 tensor cores, 72 RT cores, 288 texture units, and 96 ROPs. It will considerably decrease the already minimal performance difference between both graphics cards. The primary difference between the 2080Ti and Titan RTX are their clock speeds apart from the raw core count. Both GPUs share the same base clock speed while the Titan can boost up to 1770MHz. The RTX 2080Ti SUPER may also feature clock speeds in the 1700MHz range.

The Titan has an edge since it has 24GBs of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14Gbps with a 384-bit interface. The alleged SUPER graphics may feature one of the following configurations. Either 12 GBs of GDDR6 memory running along a 384-bit bus at 16 Gbps or 11 GBs of GDDR6 memory running alongside a 352-bit bus interface.

Lastly, pricing is the primary concern for Nvidia here. It was one of their main concerns when they launched the SUPER family for the first time. However, this time around the pricing can damage their workstation market too since the Titan is originally marketed towards corporations. As fas as the launch window is concerned, we are expecting that Nvidia may unveil their new flagship during CES earlier next year.
