NVIDIA Teases Something "Super"

NVIDIA late Thursday posted an eyebrow-raising teaser video for something with the word "Super" part of its branding. The video has no voice caption, and is titled "Something Super is Coming." It shows a silvery brushed metal surface with a stylized "Super" logo carved into it. It's anybody's guess what this could be. A new graphics card? An all-in-one gaming desktop? A new mobile gaming platform? A VR headset? Take a guess, because we've run out of them. The only hint dropped by NVIDIA is the YouTube hashtag "#GeForce" that goes with the video, so we know for sure that this is a client-segment gaming product.
The teaser video follows.

It's unlikely to be a new high-end graphics card, but if it is... Navi is (even more) DOA as an architecture.

Tablet. Need to do something with all those Xavier chips they thought Tesla was going to buy.

It reminds me too much of the Shield K1

Volta?
Volta has come and gone. NVIDIA can drag Turing/12nm with impunity for another 18 months.

I'm personally expecting an "RTX 2080 Super" that maxes out TU104 (3072 SP) and has higher clocks, and an "RTX 2070 Super" that's based on TU104 instead of TU106, with more thingmajigs. The two will preempt Navi.

There could also be an RTX 2060 Super with 256-bit 12 Gbps GDDR6, 8GB, but fewer SP than 2070, to compete with Navi10 Pro.

I guess GTX 1650 Ti and RTX 2060/70 Ti are coming.

Xavier is a huge chip with high TDP, doubt it would be suitable for anything like that. If it is xavier, I think chromebook is the only one which could work out. And I doubt Tesla was on the list anymore when manufacturing of them started. Nvidia makes the chips, Bosch makes the final products.

But other than that I agree it does look like a full product not a computer part. Maybe they finally make Tegra X1 successor without any automotive crap on it. Heck if they want to sell Nintendo something in future, they have to have some gaming orientated SOC to sell before that.

EDIT: not to mention Tegra line has always took naming from Superheros...

I could just be a sticker, and AMD would still need two years to catch up.

A linux-powered, Steam machine-esque peseudo-console?
Ya know, "super" as in contrast to "windows" (keyboard button)?

Dude I would totally buy one if that was the case. Those Xavier chips are powerful. However I doubt it that.
