NVIDIA is now preparing to release a new generation of consumer graphics cards that will be built on Ampere GPUs. The Chinese ITHome resource shared data on the release dates of these video cards, as well as the end of the life cycle of some current models based on the current generation Turing GPUs.
It is reported that NVIDIA has initiated the process of discontinuing the production of senior GeForce RTX series 20 video cards, including the flagship model GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. This is obviously due to preparations for the launch of the next-generation flagship video cards – NVIDIA needs to prepare the way for increasing the supply of next-generation graphics processors and video cards. In total, according to the source, four models of video cards will be withdrawn from production in the near future:
- GeForce RTX 2080 Ti;
- GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER;
- GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER;
- GeForce RTX 2070.
Recently it was reported that Turing-based NVIDIA graphics cards may be in short supply and rise in price for a while. Then, as one of the reasons for such a development of events, it was called the cessation of supply of these video cards. Along the way, the deficit may also cause an increase in demand for video cards from Chinese miners of cryptocurrencies, which, reportedly, have recently begun to show increased interest in video cards.
As for the release date of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series video cards, nothing was said about it before, which in the current difficult conditions is not surprising: it is very difficult to make any plans in the face of uncertainty with the work of enterprises and constant logistic delays. However, a Chinese resource reports that the presentation of Ampere generation gaming graphics cards is tentatively scheduled for September 17th. It is symbolic that if this date is correct, then the announcement of the GeForce RTX 3000 series cards will occur exactly two years after the launch of the Turing family of game accelerators, which were presented on August 20, 2018, and went on sale on September 20.
