It was weird for Computex to come and go without talk of new GPUs from Nvidia. But after having teased something to do with “Super” around Computex, it seems like we’ll get some new GPUs after all — and just in time to rain on AMD’s parade next month.
Following speculation from the specialist component sphere, confirmation has started to arrived that the next string of Nvidia GPUs will be termed “Super”. Videocardz reported that Nvidia would officially unveiled the full lineup on July 2 — just days before the global launch of AMD’s Navi and third-generation Ryzen CPUs.
Extra confirmation of the Super line then leaked out on Twitter, with user Komachi_ensaka pointing to a Eurasian Economic Commission filing outlining Gigabyte’s upcoming graphics cards, which include the RTX 2060 Super, as well as a stack of new SKUs across their AORUS line and their Radeon RX 5700 offering:
Interestingly, the review embargo for AIB models — not the Founder Edition cards from Nvidia directly — will supposedly be July 9, while the news and reviews for the founder edition models will be on July 2 internationally. That’s primarily a media move on Nvidia’s part, as the company (and the entire tech world) knows that there’s upcoming coverage for AMD’s Ryzen CPUs and RX 5700 cards around their global launch on July 7.
It certainly makes life hell for reviewers on the ground. Apart from having a whole new stack of 7nm CPUs and GPUs to deal with, NVIDIA’s thrown some more GPUs into the mix. And samples for some of these haven’t even gone out as far as I’m aware, so people are in for a long string of sleepless nights. But hey, at least there’s a little more competition in the GPU space.
