Canceled RTX 3090 Super Graphics Card Revealed
There were recent rumors that Nvidia had plans to release a potential GeForce RTX 3090 Super card, but the Super variant never actually came to fruition. Let’s delve into the details of this canceled graphics card and what it could have offered.
Abandoned Plans for the RTX 3090 Super
Nvidia, known for its top-end enthusiast class offerings, had previously released Super edition GPUs in their RTX 20 series back in 2019. These Super cards were slightly faster variants of the existing RTX cards, and Nvidia later introduced Ti variants as well.
In the RTX 30 series, Nvidia initially had plans to continue the Super branding. The RTX 3090 Super would have been a more powerful version of the RTX 3090 Ti. However, these plans were eventually scrapped and the Super variant never made it to the market.
Leaked Images of the Canceled RTX 3090 Super
Despite the cancellation, leaked images of the RTX 3090 Super provide a glimpse into what the graphics card could have been. The most notable aspect of this canceled Founders Edition (FE) GPU is its all-black design. The X frame of the GPU also features an all-black paint job, giving it a sleek and appealing aesthetic.
The RTX 3090 Super would have featured the same Dual Axial Flow fans as other FE graphics cards from Nvidia. Although very few prototypes of this canceled graphics card were produced, the leaked images give us a tantalizing look at what could have been.
It’s worth mentioning that the actual RTX 3090 Ti that was released had a different color scheme. The all-black aesthetic showcased in the leaked images was exclusive to the canceled Super variant, which unfortunately never reached consumers.
