Nvidia teases "super" GeForce reveal for Computex

  1. AMD isn't the only company intending to make waves at Computex this year, with Nvidia beginning to tease an announcement ahead of the show. The green team has posted a teaser via its GeForce YouTube channel as can be seen below.

    Such as teasers go, there isn't much to interpret here. Aside from the "something super is coming," the clip shows a new metallic "super" logo. However, that in itself is enough to suggest that Nvidia has something in mind to counter AMD's looming first generation of Navi-based cards. With Navi rumored to bring performance parity with some of Nvidia's RTX models, Nvidia may be a bit worried.

    A recent rumor avers that Nvidia is planning to refresh its upper shelf RTX cards with faster 16Gpbs memory, replacing the current 14Gbps GDDR6. That alone would be nice upgrade for the RTX line, but it's also not out of the question that Nvidia could be planning to bump up the clock speeds -- especially now that Turing silicon yields have improved.

    Whatever arrives, consumer interest may well hinge on the price tag. With its RTX lineup, Nvidia seemingly found the line in which many consumers aren't willing to cross in terms of price. Nvidia followed the premium RTX models with the more accessible GTX 1600-series, eschewing luxuries like ray tracing and deep learning super sampling (DLSS).

    It could be Nvidia is planning "Super Editions" at the same price point, doing just enough to keep its RTX models ahead of AMD. We'll know soon enough, as Nvidia has an event scheduled at Computex for Monday May 27.

    Well given the terrible naming scheme of the 16xx series, I wouldn't put it past Nvidia at this point to slap a super on their cards.

    Bring on the $5000 Super Titan with 48GB of RAM :)

    I hope it isn't just a way not to cut down prices with the arrival of navi and we can actually see an improvement

    Ray tracing is an answer to a question no one asked.

    What we really wanted was the power of a Titan Xp for half the price.

    Sooooo .... what's the "Super" part? The performance or the PRICE? LOL

    I figured Nvidia wasnt going to sit and let Navi have any market share...

    These larger more innovative companies like Intel and Nvidia. Once they have the market lead these days....I dont think they are going to relinquish it.

    I see intel dropping a bomb if zen2 is a competitive product too. These companies have just had more time to create and sit on their next iterations before the other guys can even catch up.

    From past experience, this is no surprise.

    It may take a little longer, but I bet AMD will catch up - especially when they refresh the architecture for their next generation...
    Exactly! Top-end refresh for top-end price. I bet we can count on it.

    Might be a dual GPU...GPU.
    AMD 5990 anyone?

    If I could produce a GPU, I'd call it the Wallet Buster 1000 and it would outperform everything else, giving you ultimate bragging rights, but it would be priced about $20...no $500 above the next best option.

    It's sound more like STEALING (rip-off) their custom.

    Nvidia yes, Intel no. 3% performance boost per generation with 4 cores the whole time is in no way shape or form innovation.

    You aren't thinking Nvidia greedy enough. You need to cripple that overpowered GPU so it's performance is only 5% faster, then slowly trickle release "new" cards at double the price of the last until eventually you releasing the card people were supposed to originally get at 10x the price.

    It might be a 7nm refresh allowing for better thermals and higher clockspeeds there really would be no point in another 12nm refresh at this point 7nm with the die shrink would be a better way to increase profits for NVidia while providing a better value for consumers. Knocking anywhere from $50-$200 of the cards, due to better yields and smaller lower cost die and a hefty increase in power, Think about it Vega got a 25-30% increase at the same TDP and it's just a bad arch. Plus this could be a way for NVidia to get their feet wet with the 7nm process before they ratify the arch further, at nearly half the size it's a no brainier.

    Naw Intel has no clue what to do, unless they clean up that 10nm mess up they are just left with slightly higher IPC as a selling point for a huge markup over Zen2, that is if everything seems good on release, even I will admit that 12C/24T 5Ghz monster looks good, even If I never tap it's full potential the bottom line is I'd rather have more than what I need then be stuck with not enough, and a whole host of Spector/Meltdown vulnerabilities and only 5-10 frames to show for it with a lighter wallet.

    Either way it should be an interesting Computex.

    Lol speak for yourself plz
    Graphical context is just as if not more important than just a resolution bump, at 8k you are pretty much done and we will probably start seeing them in the next 5years.

    Also this absolutely shows ignorance, Ray Tracing is a method of rendering, Pixel/Sprite->Vector->Rasterization->Ray Tracing,.,.....NVidia is being smart getting the ball rolling, let's face it their engineers know how close and when relatively we can make the full jump, u til then programmers need to get familiar with how to use it, otherwise it will be Atari/PS1 days all over again with massive frame drops for the sake of rendering a new method.oh wait......
    I guess people are afraid of change.

    Nvidia are not known for providing better value for consumers. There hasn't been a single instance in the company's history where they lowered price because they wanted to help the consumer. The only time Nvidia lowers prices is to compete. Then again, the same could be said for nearly any company.

    Company's like Nvidia are 1 of the reasons this hobby gets more expensive every year. Their products get more expensive with every launch and I don't see that changing. Couple years from now a middle tier card will sell for close to $1k.

    Seriously? You do realize the rtx 2080 is literally faster in 98% of games than the titan xp and you can get them for $670 new or I've seen some open boxs as cheap as $550 on Ebay. So you already have over titan xp power at under 1/2 the price!

    #1 I had the Titan and the Titan XP and I find it so amazing how many people pissed and moaned about the price of the Titan and Titan XP, yet totally accept the pricing of the 2080Ti.

    #2 Now I've got the 2080Ti and there's virtually nothing to use with Ray Tracing. I didn't buy Battlefield V cause I didn't want a WW2 game. I want another modern war game.

    As far as I know there's only like less than 5 RTX supported titles and RTX has issues on each of them - including reduced framerates with RTX on.

    I bought a used GTX 1070 for $250 last year. I think that's a very fair price. I wouldn't buy anything new from Nvidia anymore cause the prices are just mental. but the used market? it's fabulous!!
