    It leaves room for a follow-on "SuperDuper" update, so that's something.

    One of the problems with "Turbo" (from the ATI days) was that the normal follow-on from car world was "Turbo Intercooled" but that didn't translate to GPUs very well.

      No I think it is supposed to come in at the same price point, I assume that will lower the 2080 price..

      In general it sounds like production of 2080 is just going better than expected so they leave more units on and let them run faster: Presto, new product.

        It's funny how they announced a bunch of cards, but literally everything of substance was already known because it leaked out weeks ago.

        As for the point of it all, AMD priced the Navi 10-based cards they announced a few weeks ago specifically to slot in between Nvidia's line-up and the new "super" cards are meant to just slot right in between their pre-existing cards, thus stepping on AMD's toes as much as possible.

        Would have been nice had the "Super" cards replaced the "regular" cards at the same price points, but they just provide a bunch of mid-points (in both price and performance) between Nvidia's existing line-up. However seeing how these models only exist to trip up AMD they're just the most unexciting product launch I've seen in this space in years.

            I suppose these are made with harvested GPUs that were collected during the whole year of headstart that AMD gave to NVidia. And they support ray tracing and AI AA which Navi still does not.

              Now, we will just wait for Michael to buy and test all these cards.

                Not harvested. Probably better yields made it unneccessary to disable as many cores as one year ago.

                  GTX 2065. Or is that too obvious and easy for marketing drones?

                      Next spring, look out for the CyberForce RTX 2077.
