During the E3 2019 press conference to launch its ‘SUPER’ graphics cards, Nvidia officially confirmed that its Ti-series GPUs have been laid to rest for good. Rumors about a so-called RTX 2080 Ti SUPER, however, have continued to persist, even though the company specifically clarified that the GeForce GTX 2080 Ti was a one-off, and there are no plans to launch any more Ti-branded 2000-series cards going forward.

Speaking to TweakTown at the event last month, the SVP of Nvidia’s PC business, Jeff Fisher, reportedly confirmed that contrary to speculations, there are no plans to launch an RTX 2080 Ti SUPER. Meanwhile, according to TechQuila, the GeForce RTX 2070 and 2080 will be phased out as the RTX 2070 SUPER and the 2080 SUPER take their place. The blog, however, claims that the standard RTX 2060 will continue to be offered by Nvidia as a ‘budget’ card with ray-tracing capabilities.

Nvidia announced its new GeForce RTX SUPER graphics cards during E3 2019 last month as replacement for the Ti-series cards it has been launching for the better part of the last decade. There was, however, some confusion about whether the company still intends to launch at least some Ti-branded GPUs in the future, given that the RTX 2080 Ti is already in the market. The latest reports, though, should now clear up all those rumors and speculations.

According to Nvidia, its GeForce RTX SUPER Graphics Cards offer best-in-class performance with real-time ray tracing capabilities. The most affordable one of the lot, the GTX 2060 SUPER, comes with 2176 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 memory, 7+7 TOPs (FP32+INT32) and 57 Tensor TFLOPs, all of which combine for up to 22 percent faster performance than the RTX 2060, according to the company.
