Kitguru writes there's circumstancial evidence that points to a possible GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super card. The site reports a recent GeForce Now cloud gaming service update added an unknown T10-8 GPU with 16GB of VRAM to the GeForce Now RTX servers.

It's speculated that NVIDIA may use this chip to launch a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super card:
The update was later pulled due to performance issues, so GeForce Now is back running on Tesla P40 GPUs. It is largely believed that the performance issues were brought on by GeForce Now using Windows Server 2012, which does not support DirectX 12 or the DXR API required for ray-tracing to function properly.

So what is the T10-8? According to an AIDA64 update, it is a new graphics card powered by a variation of the TU102, the Turing chip at the heart of the RTX 2080Ti. We don’t know if this means that there will be an RTX 2080Ti Super, but it would appear that a new variant of the GPU is being worked on.
