as long as it's released before Cyberpunk 2077...they're cutting it a bit close with the rumored late August release...unless Cyberpunk gets delayed again

I'd say quite a bit is up in the air right at the moment with the state of the world.
I agree with you
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.

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.

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.

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.

With that said I realize not everyone will be as flexible with their spending as I am. This too shall pass.

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.

Seems somewhat possible. There were rumors earlier that they wanted to announce something at GTC then held back due to everything getting canceled.

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.

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...

If history is anything to go by it'll be a month or so following the main release.

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.

Basically, but they were still weeks apart instead of months.
2080 = 9/20/18
2080 Ti = 9/27/18
2070 = 10/17/18

I guess the timeframe I was thinking of was the 2080 to the 2070 release, (I generally pick up the 70 series so makes sense from a recollection perspective)

Very true I think it was the 1080 Ti that launched a really long time after the 1080. Like 6 months or something?

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.....

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.

Why are people assuming that gaming cards are delayed due to covid. What’s that based on? It’s equally likely the release was always planned for later in the year.

All we know is that HPC announcements at GTC have been delayed.

I'm a graphics whore, so I can't wait to upgrade. I wish there was still SLI :( Would love to upgrade to a new 3000 Ti with a shiny new 10 core skylake or Ryzen 4 zen 3. Can't wait!

They were rumored for a June-ish release. Obviously that's just a rumor, but it's something people have been holding onto since last year. People are assuming COVID is delaying GPU's because it sort of makes sense. Nvidia already didn't have much reason to launch a new product without competition from AMD, but add in a global pandemic and economic recession, and that's a bad time to launch a new, expensive product of any sort.

Obviously this is all just speculation and maybe they have been targeting late 2020 all along. Unless Nvidia feels like confirming it, we have no way of knowing.

Launch was changed.

I'd only buy it if I can run 2560x1600( or 16x9 1440) with RTX on @ 60 fps. If not I probably will skip it again. I'd rather not buy a GPU for more than a $1000, but if I am buying one for that kind of money it has to at least be running at my current native resolution with all the bells and whistles on at a min 60fps on currently released games or it just isn't worth the money it costs IMHO.

^ Pretty sure a 2070 super could handle this
I haven't been following since the 2080Ti was released, but last time I read to use RT in a game that supported it you had to drop to 1080p or render at 1080p and upscale to a higher resolution if you wanted to get 60fps.

Alright, I need to be off furlough before then to upgrade the system. Haha And this next time I do NOT plan on going SLI ever again (although I said that last time too, but it just looked better in the case lol).

So I'm just jumping into this thread now. Are these rumored products going to be high-end, more powerful than say the 2080? Or will there be replacements and improved performance for say the 2060?

As usual expect the flagship models first 3070/80/80TI
a 3060 model in 2021 likely more compute for less power usage like its bretheren

I will be preordering 3080Ti or the fastest card up to €2000 price tag they release.
I'm extremely happy with my 1080Ti, but I have a 4k/120hz screen and I want to use that to its max.
1080Ti was released over 3 years ago. Amazing that it's holding so well with modern games.
2080Ti is a great card but mainly because of DLSS. If a game doesn't support DLSS, 2080Ti performance is very, very lackluster.

It the fastest GPU in rasterized games, come back to reality...do we need to pull up the chart again, showing how Pascall was an anomaly?
