NVIDIA sort of snubbed enthusiasts when they left out the RTX 2080 Ti from the list of cards getting a faster Super variant. The most likely reason for that is that AMD doesn’t have a competing product in that range, so team green has no reason to fortify its top-end cards. However, AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su a while back claimed that AMD might launch a higher-end Navi card based on the 1st Gen RDNA architecture. From what we’ve seen, this will be the Navi 12 part which is expected to launch sometime Q4 2019. So, it wouldn’t be surprising if NVIDIA actually launches an RTX 2080 Ti Super.

Further adding fuel to the fire, AIDA64 recently added in information for a new and yet-to-be-announced graphics card from NVIDIA based on their TU102 die.

As of now, there are only 4 cards based on the TU102 die, namely the RTX Titan, 2080 Ti for their mainstream lineup and the Quadro RTX 8000 and 6000 for the enterprise side. Guessing from the name in the AIDA64 changelog, the new card will likely be focused towards the mainstream

Since there isn’t much to be improved with the Titan besides giving it more memory as it already has a maxed-out TU102 die, its likely we will see something like a 2080 Ti Super as increasing the memory on the Titan would be threatening to the enterprise line up. We expect to see a 2080 Ti Super being similar to how the 2080 Super is, i.e. slightly higher memory clocks and a few more CUDA cores enabled compared to the regular version.

Although NVIDIA had said that there would not be an RTX2080 Ti Super, plans seem to have changed after the confirmation of higher-end Navi based GPUs from Dr. Lisa Su at AMD’s Q2 earnings call.
