Nvidia graphics card listing hints at RTX 2080 Ti Super

  1. As reported by Tom’s Hardware, AIDA64, the popular system information, diagnostics, and benchmarking tool, added data in its changelog relating to an unannounced Nvidia GeForce RTX T10-8 graphics card.

    There are few details on the mysterious card, but we know it is based on Nvidia’s TU102 die, which is currently only found in the company’s most powerful and expensive offerings: The RTX 2080 Ti, Titan RTX, Quadro RTX 8000, and Quadro RTX 6000.

    One possibility is that this could be a ‘Black’ version of the Titan RTX. Nvidia did release a GTX Titan Black back in 2014, and this RTX incarnation may boost the clock speed or increase the memory of the Titan RTX.

    What’s just as likely is that the card is an RTX 2080 Ti Super, which will sit in the gap between the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX in terms of both price and performance. Hopefully, this card will offer more of a performance boost over its standard version than the RTX 2080 Super, which is only slightly faster than the RTX 2080.

    Earlier this month, AMD boss Lisa Su confirmed that high-end Navi cards are “on track.” When they do arrive, they could be a serious rival for the RTX 2080 Ti, which would explain why Nvidia might be preparing an even more powerful product.

    Not sure where Nvidia can really go with this product. Higher clock speeds? Well, isn't that already covered by the likes of the Galax HOF, Zotac AMP Extreme or Asus ROG Matrix Platinum? Full chip, with all the SMs available? But that's the Titan X and it's not like Nvidia can release a better version of that (well, they could, but it would just a Quadro RTX 6000).

    And the titan RTX already has 24 GB of VRAM. What on earth is nvidia going to improve on here? Maybe a full 4608 cores, 384 bit memory interface, and 12 GB of VRAM?

    I love watching nvidia alienate their consumer base.

    Just too similar to the Titan RTX, though, and although the performance difference between the Titan and 2080 Ti isn't big, I think Nvidia will want to keep the full chips exclusively for the pro/compute market.

    I fear that this will just be a higher clocked 2080 Ti. Not necessarily a bad thing, but if they launch it at a higher MSRP, I can't see it going very far.

    Kind of funny... as this is basically what the Ti brand of cards were.... In previous generations, Nvidia released a high "80" version of a card (980, 1080) and a Titan... then, after a few months, a Ti version of the 80 card would be released (980Ti, 1080Ti) that would offer almost exactly the same performance as the Titan for much cheaper (but still more expensive than the 80 version).

    Well, Nvidia basically hoodwinked everyone by releasing the 2080Ti alongside the 2080 and Titan, leaving us to what we thought would be the performance kingpin for consumers, the 2080Ti - but leaving the Titan for prosumers/enterprise users...

    Now we see why... Nvidia basically did a sneaky "renumbering" and added "Ti" to everything by calling them "Super"...

    So REALLY.... the Nvidia 2080Ti should be the 2080, and the new 2080Ti Super would be the "REAL" 2080Ti...

    While it will probably be ridiculously priced, if we can fall back to previous Nvidia releases, it should offer near-RTX Titan performance for a bit more than the 2080Ti...

    The thing is, since the price difference between the 2080Ti and the Titan is SO much (and AMD has NOTHING to compete yet).... Nvidia can charge pretty much anything they want...

    Right... So they shifted their top card up... what... $800-$1200 dollars? The 1080 TI was a $700 card initially... and I Think ultra versions pushed it to $1000... and the market fiasco made that go higher.

    And so... now what... $2000 on a video card? That becomes the "norm"?

    Time to take out a home equity loan for that new video card.

    Exchanging a used RTX card for a smaller used yacht. Don't call me unless it's at least 15 meters long.

    The RTX T10-8 cards are used in servers for their GeForce NOW cloud gaming platform; presumably multi-session units like the Tesla P40s.
