Previously we reported that the RTX 40-series is in the works and is expected to hit the market in Q4 of 2022, but now according to a recent leak, Nvidia might be planning to launch GeForce RTX 3090 Super later this year (probably to counter Intel Xe-HPG Alchemist GPUs set to launch in early 2022). As per leaks, RTX 3090 Super is expected to be based on the GA102 silicon chip featuring 10,752 CUDA cores and a higher 400 W+ TDP.
The rumors firstly came from two Twitter users, @Greymon55 and @kopite7kimi (via NotebookCheck). Based on the leaks, Nvidia is expected to max out the RTX 30-series GPU technologis which currently uses an 8nm GA102 silicon chip (max out at 10,752 CUDA cores, 84 RT cores, 336 Tensor cores, 336 TMU, and 112 ROPs).
Additionaly, Nvidia might be planning to pair a GDDR6X memory with GA102 silicon. Which will see RTX 3090 Super reach a 21 Gbps data rate slightly more than its predecessors RTX 3090 (19.5 Gbps). It is also said that the card will launch with a 384-bit wide memory bus which has the speed of 1TB/s of memory bandwidth.
As it name suggst, this GPU is going to catch the first position for the super card in the GeForce RTX 30-series. The actual launch date of rumored RTX 3090 Super is still not known but is expected to launch in 2021, which is very close. Also, pricing details are not clear just yet.
