The Nvidia RTX 3080 could be closer as another Turing GPU may have bit the dust

Image Description

Nvidia has reportedly discontinued the GeForce RTX 2070 Super as it prepares for the arrival of its GeForce RTX 3080 GPU.

According to online rumors, Nvidia has already halted production of many of its high-end Turing GPUs, including the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 Super. Chinese website MyDrivers is now reporting that the GeForce RTX 2070 GPU is the next graphics card in line for the chopping block just two years after it was first released in September 2018.

It reports that the RTX 2070 Super has been “completely” discontinued, which means the last batch of the GPUs has been dispatched  to board partners and no further orders will be accepted.  

According to MyDrivers , the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 Super, and the RTX 2070 Super have now all been discontinued, with just the GeForce RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 remaining in the Turing line. 

While Nvidia’s decision to axe the Turing lineup hasn’t been confirmed, it's likely the company is prepping for the arrival of its next-generation Ampere GPUs. 

The Ampere-based GeForce 3000 series is expected to be announced on September 17, but according to reports, only Nvidia’s highest-end parts will be released that same month - namely the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti

The GeForce RTX 3070, which could succeed the now-defunct RTX 2070 Super, is expected to launch the following month, according to MyDrivers, while the GeForce RTX 3060 will make its debut in November. 

This later launch date is likely due to the continued popularity of the current RTX 2060, which is reportedly seeing an increase in demand due to the popularity of crypto mining in China.

  • Designers take note, Asus's newest ZenBook is how you get our attention

    The Asus Zenbook 14X Space Edition laptop has just launched, featuring a 3.5-inch LED display on the lid along with other space-themed elements, and some seriously powerful hardware to boot.

    The laptop, which was previewed at CES 2022, is packing some impressive specs, including an Intel Core i9-12900H with integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, 32GB LPDDR5 RAM, a 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD, and a 14-inch, 2.8K (2880 x 1800p) OLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz and a response time of 0.2ms.

    But what really makes the Space Edition stand out is the 3.5-inch LED ZenVision display on the lid, which can be customized to display things like the time, customizable messages, animations, and more. There are also engraved designs in the aluminum chassis that gives the entire laptop a particularly starship kind of feel. 

    And, as The Verge notes, the laptop is said to meet the US Space Systems Command Standard (SMC-S-016A), making it resistant "to extreme vibrations and high/low operating temperatures." This makes sense, since the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition was apparently released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first Asus laptop traveling into space. You can get one now for $1,999. 


    Analysis: more experimentation with form, please!

    Nearly every laptop out there is built around the same clamshell form factor we've been using for decades now, and there's no real reason to change that. It's hard to imagine a portable PC coming in some other strange design that we weren't expecting that isn't simply a novelty item.

    Still, even as efficient and useful as it is, we've been looking at the same form factor for decades now, and so anything that can break up the monotony is a good thing. While the laser engravings are cool, the 3.5-inch ZenVision smart display on the lid is really the kind of thing we wish we saw more of in the laptop market.

    Having a cool, eye-catching element like a customizable screen that can let some of your own personality seep into the design – especially one that is going to be facing out into the world for everyone to see – shows how sometimes playing around with a familiar form can make a standard laptop design feel out of this world. Needless to say, this is one laptop we can't wait to get our hands on.

  • The world's most powerful 13-inch gaming laptop is now on sale for the first time

    The Asus ROG Flow X13 is, quite possibly, the most powerful 13-inch gaming laptop on the market right now - and it's on sale for $1,349.99 (was $1,499.99) at Best Buy.

    This is the first time we've seen this extremely popular (and unique) gaming laptop go on sale and needless to say the lowest price yet.

    Featuring an absurdly powerful line-up of specs including an RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, 1TB SSD, 16GB of RAM, and AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor, the Asus ROG Flow X13 is a fantastic choice if you're looking for a lightweight machine that doesn't skimp on power.

    It's also featuring a 120Hz display and 2-in-1 form factor - something that you literally won't find on any other gaming laptop (literally anywhere). Is it a gimmick? Well, we can't see many triple AAA titles making use of the touchscreen, but it's great if you want to kick back and play with a controller - simply turn that keyboard on its face and use it as a handy stand. 

    Of course, being a 13.4-inch laptop means you won't get quite the same gaming performance as the usual 15.6-inch machines - it is, after all, running on way less power. That said, as a lightweight machine for video editing, music production, and other intensive tasks (with a bit of gaming on the side), it's an incredibly compelling option.

With an RTX 3050 Ti, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS, this machine is superbly capable for its size and a worthwhile investment if you value that portability.

    13-inch gaming laptops are a real rarity, with the longstanding Razer Blade Stealth 13 being the only serious competitor to the Asus ROG Flow X13. Both are superb choices if you're looking for that premium ultrabook that'll handle a bit of gaming on the side, but when it comes to overall power (and value), Asus has Razer beat in our books.

    Not only does the Flow X13 have a more powerful CPU (Ryzen 8 vs Core i7), graphics card (RTX 3050 Ti vs GTX 1650), but it's also cheaper (the Blade 13 is $1,799). Plus, it also features that versatile 2-in-1 form factor. In short, it's absolutely awesome value for what you're getting.
