According to a mystery slide that was spotted in a HardwareUnboxed video, Nvidia was gearing up to release an RTX 2060 Super GPU for laptops.
If you have been following the news closely, you may have heard that Nvidia is preparing a couple of Super graphics cards for use in laptops. We already know that the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080 Super were both going to be available for laptops – but the 2060 Super was notably absent from this announcement.
When this slide mentioning the 2060 Super mobile GPU was unveiled, it no doubt got RTX 2060 Super fans a bit excited. The RTX 2060 Super for desktops is a great graphics card for the price so it would be a perfect addition to laptops.
ASUS’s Recent Statement Contradicts The Slide Information
However, in a recent statement, ASUS has confirmed that the slides have incorrect information on them.
“ASUS can confirm that there is no [mobile] RTX 2060 Super, and all the specs within the mentioned Nvidia slide are for the desktop Super GPUs.”
Of course, this doesn’t entirely rule out the possibility of Nvidia developing an RTX 2060 graphics card for laptops in the future, but it looks like it’s just not meant to be for the moment.
No doubt this is a bit disappointing for Nvidia fans who may have wanted a more competitively priced Super graphics card in their new laptop purchase.
It looks like you will have to make do with either the RTX 2070 or the RTX 2080 if your budget can stretch. The good news is, these are also great graphics cards which are well worth the purchase. We’re interested to see exactly how they perform in gaming laptops.
If we hear more information about any of the Nvidia Super graphics cards, we will keep you updated.
