Rumour that Gigabyte has let slip some info on unannounced GPUs. It states that these may be branded under the SUPER name.

Yeah the problem isn't so much the Super name its Turing made it mean something and they painted themselves in a corner with the 2080 Ti (should of been a 2090). Then you could of had a 2080 Ti, 2070 Ti, etc....

EVGA used SuperClocked for the longest time and it meant you were getting the faster clocked variant. Its fine for that but is a 3070 super a faster possibly more feature rich 3070 or its replacement?

+1 for more ram for the more ram people (that don't watch GN)

No I have no problem with calling a better card "Super" or "Plus" or "Extreme" . A 3080 Super should be a faster clocked 3080.

The problem is Nvidia made "Super" mean something. A 3080 Super would be a 3080Ti class card. So random Joe on Newegg sees a 3080 Super for the same price as a normal 3080 and is like "Holy Crap" BUY BUY BUY!!!

Maybe it was a good thing I wasn't able to get a card yesterday. With the direct pipe between storage and the GPU's RAM now 20G could make a huge difference.
