Look at Me! I need the attention.

I'd say quite a bit is up in the air right at the moment with the state of the world.
As mentioned in another thread, TSMC is still open with production lines in full operation. Taiwan has not been hit nearly as hard as other parts of the world. End of summer has been my prediction before all this nonsense started.I agree with you
LOL. I'll be buying a Ti. PC gaming is my hobby and I'll continue doing it as long as I'm able to. No reason not to.Hope it will be at least half the price of the last gen, otherwise nearly no one is going to buy it. It's hard enough to get by as it is during the pandemic.
That is a fallacy based on your own wants. If the economy is badly damaged by all of this then most likely most will just be built for the professional market to recoup costs. They may eventually release a consumer one if the market recovers quickly and they feel they can sell a high enough quantity to justify the investment. Quantity is the deal breaker as the more you make the cheaper it gets to build, you just have to have enough demand at the price you need to sell at. If everything smoothes out quickly and the world goes back to normal then you might only see a small delay. But right now that is looking unlikely. Go to Detroit and go to a car plant and go look at the droves of cars and you will know that they indeed will sit on inventory and they cost a whole lot more to make then a video card.If you have stock of a product you don't sit on it. It goes on the shelves. Simple as that. NV and AMD aren't going to sit on product. It may or may not sell, but it's going to be in stores.
Both companies have booked their production well in advance. That's not going to stop.
30% has kinda been the norm from generation to generation...Pascal was an outlier FYI, drop the "entitlement"...Gotta release it before the next gen consoles steal all the thunder, especially if it's going to be another meh generation, the rumored >$1k 3080Ti card that's only ~30% faster than 2080 Ti.
If history is anything to go by it'll be a month or so following the main release.I really do hope they release something a lot more powerful than the 2080 Ti before CP 2077 but we'll see. I got my 2080 Ti a little over a week ago because with everything going on I didn't see NVIDIA releasing anything new before the game launches in September.
I also wonder if they are going to launch the 3080 Ti with all the other 3000 series cards at the same time or do a delayed launch like they did with the 1080 Ti. I hope it's the former...
Basically, but they were still weeks apart instead of months.The 2080 Ti launched alongside the 2070 and 2080 didn't it? I thought it was the first time the Ti flagship card was released at the same time at least recently.
They likely couldn’t rush the release with manufacturing delays due to the pandemic. Unemployment rate in the US is now double digit percentage and headed towards great depression numbers, a new gpu would be an extreme luxury for many folks. Better to hold on releasing in hopes everything turns around sooner rather than later. I’m optimistic the quarantine ends before the start of June at the latest.Should have released it now or sooner rather than later. August we might still be on lock down. People would have bought now before or right at stay-at-home orders. But this gets deep, GPU and consoles going to take a backseat to Food, Utilities, and gas. Should have announced via online last month. This might be one of the worst years to launch anything from Consoles to cars. Priorities are going to change after this pandemic. AMD either doesn't really have Big Navi ready to go or are also holding out stupidly for a "better time". I think it is the first.. Big Navi is starting to sound a lot like Fury and Vega. It's been coming since last June.....
