A very reliable source of leaks in the tech sector, Greymon55, has revealed that Nvidia is be preparing the launch of a new top-of-the-range flagship graphics card for the gaming market, the GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER. As indicated, this GPU will arrive with a total of 10,752 CUDA Cores, which is basically 256 more CUDA Cores compared to the original GeForce RTX 3090, or put another way, 2% more cores.

This increase in cores will also lead to an increase in power consumption, going from a TDP of 350 to + 400W, a quite generous jump due to the small performance improvement that it would offer on paper, until unless green camp got tricks under their sleeve.
It should be remembered that another well-known source in the sector, kopite7kimi, revealed in mid-July that Nvidia would launch a series of GeForce RTX 30 SUPER Series graphics before making the leap to the GeForce RTX 40 with the new Ada Lovelace architecture.
It was also indicated that the manufacturing process will remain same for these ‘refresh’ GPUs, so they will continue to be manufactured at 8nm by Samsung. Of course, for now there is no official details about the possible release date of both the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER and the other SUPER models, so take this new with a pinch of salt.
