NVIDIA is preparing a review of its graphics cards based on the Ampere, which we currently know as the GeForce RTX 30 Super. This name has meaning Because it follows the strategy that we saw, at the time, with the GeForce RTX 20 Super, it will serve the green giant to renew its catalog of graphics solutions before the arrival of its next generation, the GeForce RTX 40 series, based on Ada Lovelace.
GeForce RTX 30 Super will arrive, according to the latest information, In January next year, but they will not be alone. A new rumor confirms That date, NVIDIA will introduce a GeForce RTX 3090 Super and RTX 3070 Ti Super, as well as a GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of GDDR6 memory. This last model seems like an interesting review to me, especially since then It can help alleviate, at least partially, the situation Currently suffering from the general consumer graphics card market (price shortage and inflation).
In terms of raw performance, the RTX 2060 is capable of excellent 1080p performance and very good performance at 1440p, has dedicated hardware for ray tracing acceleration, and Thanks to the second generation of DLSS, it can transmit Triple A titles in 4K fluently. With these buildings on the table, I’m not surprised at the idea that NVIDIA wants to release a review of that one with 12GB of GDDR6 memory. If confirmed, it will only give weight to what I have told you on other occasions, which is that the RTX 2060 has become one of NVIDIA’s best mid-range graphics solutions.
Coming back to the GeForce RTX 30 Super, this time the news source is only talking about two specific models, the RTX 3090 Super and the RTX 3070 Ti Super. It is important to note that this does not mean that NVIDIA will only release these two models, but it seems to indicate that We may face a sudden launchThis means that they can first release these two new graphics cards and soon after the rest of the models from the new Super range.
GeForce RTX 30 Super likely performance
A leak in late September has already given us the first breakdown of potential specifications for the upcoming NVIDIA graphics cards, and As we saw in this articleAnd The most interesting review was the GeForce RTX 3060 Super, since it could end up being more powerful than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, although I’m skeptical about the potential impact of using a 192-bit bus on that.
The difference between the GeForce RTX 3090 Super and the GeForce RTX 30 Super 3090 will be very small, since the former will only bring, in theory, slight increase in overall shading, It will therefore also contain another RT core, more tensor cores and more texture units. On the other hand, the performance improvement in the case of the RTX 3080 Super compared to the RTX 3080 can be even greater, because although there is not much difference in the number of shaders, the former will have 2GB more graphic memory and one bus larger, resulting in higher bandwidth.
In the case of the RTX 3070 Super, the difference should not be too big compared to the RTX 3070, as the changes will, in theory, be limited to higher bandwidth derived from the use of GDDR6X memory. Finally we have the RTX 3060 Super, a graphics card It will have 5,632 shaders compared to 3,584 shaders on the RTX 3060, and therefore should deliver a significant improvement in performance, as we anticipated in the first paragraph of this section.
