Right before Computex 2019 is about to start, Nvidia has got everyone’s tongues wagging with a YouTube video teasing a ‘Super’ announcement.
What the teaser is referencing incredibly ambiguous, with the video giving little away, simply showing a new logo with the word ‘Super’ carved into a seemingly metallic slab.
The video is entitled ‘Something super is coming…’ but even the most perceptive detectives won’t be able to squeeze out any clues out of that – but we’ll have a go.

Some have even donned their tinfoil hats and speculated it could be a gaming smartphone, as the video lingers on the ‘P’ with the centre segment looking suspiciously like a modern day phone. Such a move by Nvidia wouldn’t be out the question, as they’d be joining the likes of Razer Phone 2 and Asus ROG Phone in the battle for the mobile gaming market, but we’re not convinced Nvidia is interested in exploring such a route.
Instead, the ‘Super’ tease could refer to a refresh of Nvidia’s current line-up of graphics cards.

Given that AMD is rumoured to be unleashing a pair of Navi GPUs at Computex, it could be that we’ll see refreshes of the current Turing-based 20 Series and 16 Series graphics cards, maybe with boosted clock and memory speeds.
Having already launched several gaming-focused graphics cards this year, including the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Nvidia was done for the year, but if AMD’s new line of Navi graphics processors can shake up the GPU arms race in the same way the Ryzen line has challenged Intel’s dominance, then Nvidia may want to head off any competition at the pass.
This is just us speculating – we could see something like a Super RTX 2070 being announced next week, or it could be something entirely different.
Nvidia has a conference scheduled for next Monday, so it’s very much expected we’ll get official confirmation then. As soon as we do hear more, we’ll be sure to update this article and go in-depth with the exciting reveal.
