NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series offers mix of more CUDA cores and more/faster memory

Famous Twitter leaker kopite7kimi is at it again, this time he leaks the specifications of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series. Allegedly, these cards will be revealed sometime in early 2022. One caveat though is that even kopite7kimi admits he's not 100% sure about the accuracy of the specifications he received.

Anyway, the GeForce RTX 30 SUPER series is a stop-gap refresh between the current Ampere-based video cards and the next generation. There's still a bit of confusion about whether NVIDIA's next gaming GPUs will be based on Lovelace or Hopper, but we'll presume it will indeed be Lovelace.

More CUDA cores, higher memory capacity or upgrade to GDDR6X

The leak indicates there may be SUPER versions of the GeForce RTX 3060, 3070, 3080, and 3090. Some models like the 3060, 3080, and 3090 will reportedly get a bump in the number of CUDA cores, the 3060 and 3080 are slated to get more memory capacity, and the 3070 seems to get an upgrade from GDDR6 to GDDR6X memory.
Definitely, the most interesting SKU from the upcoming SUPER refresh is the RTX 3060 SUPER. The card would allegedly feature more cores than RTX 3060 Ti, which is 5632 CUDA cores compared to 4864 on the Ti model. This means that the card must be using GA104 GPU instead of GA106.
