Nvidia RTX 2080 And 2070 Super GPUs Could Power Gaming Laptops
We already know that Nvidia is gearing up to launch its new mobile GPUs at some point. However, an inside source from Nvidia told people at Wccftech that these new mobile GPUs will be released as early as May this year. The details of these mobile GPUs will be revealed at the end of March when an embargo probably lifts.
According to the source, Nvidia’s new line of mobile GPUs will include the RTX 2070 and the 2080 Super graphics cards which will be used to power gaming laptops.
The source suggests that at least six new notebook graphics cards are on the horizon. The 2080 Super included supposedly has 8 GB of GDDR6 RAM and looks to replace Nvidia’s current RTX 2080 GPU.
What About Pricing For The New Mobile GPUs?
Interestingly enough, it sounds like Nvidia will be keeping the cost the same for these more powerful 2080 models. The leak also points to the new RTX 2070 Super being priced around the same as the current RTX 2070.
However, if these mobile GPUs reflect what Nvidia has done in the past with the desktop market, it might mean that the new and improved 2080 and 2070 Supers aren’t that much of an improvement over the previous versions.
We imagine that if there were huge differences, the price would be reflective of that. However, as this is all just based on rumor so far, we can’t be sure about any of it yet.
Are Other Super GPUs On The Horizon?
Also on the horizon is the new GeForce RTX 2060 which is set to replace the current 2060. Given the rumors about the 2070 and 2080 models, it looks like this could also be another Super variant.
Previous rumors have suggested the existence of a GTX 1650 Super mobile version in the works. However, this source suggests that this isn’t true and that a new base model of the GTX 1650 will be available for entry-level users instead.
Nvidia’s Possible GTX 1650 Overhaul
The new entry-level GTX 1650 will feature 4 GB of GDDR6 video memory, an upgrade over the GDDR5 featured in the previous versions. If this new model is genuine, it will look to replace the GTX 1050 at the entry level range.
The current 1650 will also be replaced by a GTX 1650 Ti model which will supposedly feature a much higher core count to differentiate it from the 1650 base options.
Of course, as with any rumor or leak, nothing is certain. However, if this all turns out to be true, it looks like an interesting upheaval of the Turing graphics cards line for Nvidia. It has also been rumored that these new mobile GPUs will coincide with the launch of Intel’s 10th generation mobile CPUs which will make for some interesting comparisons between the two brands in the market.
