Looking to know "Around about" time frame the 2080 super and a 2080Ti replacement may hit? Any have any decent speculations? Thanks
If AMD drops a higher end card (5900 or 5900xt maybe) and it does scary good numbers - I'd imagine Nvidia wouldn't hesitate to drop something new ahead of time to break AMD's momentum. They definitely don't want to get too cocky and get surprised like Intel did for CPUs.
Given that the VII has EOL'ed there will be an empty spot at the top of AMD's product stack soon and from current hardware reviews of Navi 7nm boards saying AMD left alot of performance headroom on the table, I'm guessing that was for a reason.
NVIDIA confirmed there will be no SUPER refresh of the 2080 Ti.
I highly doubt Nvidia would do a refresh for the 2080ti before Ampere next year. EXCEPT in this situation! Nvidia is fanatical about maintaining its position of having fastest single card available. If AMD even gets close to the 2080ti, pretty sure Nvidia would respond with a refresh for the Ti.Even if AMD makes a card that matches the 2080ti by breaking the 64cu limit gcn kept them under, we won't see a new 80ti series until next year. They won't rush something out just to take the crown back it will be a small price cut to hold people over then a killshot.

Of course Nvidia is not going to confirm any refresh coming. It is a sure was to be stuck with dead stock cause people will wait for the refresh if they know coming.NVIDIA confirmed there will be no SUPER refresh of the 2080 Ti.
It was 30 months between the release of Pascal and Turing, but I have a feeling this cycle will be shorter. I would not expect a Turing successor (Ampere?) until May 2020 at the earliest.
Speculation may be fun, but it's not terribly useful in this context. RTX 2080 Super information is still under embargo. However, it's release date is 7/23/19 and the MSRP of the Founder's Edition is $699.99. No information on a successor to the RTX 2080 Ti is currently known.
We may never see a Super Ti or Titan - if AMD has more in the pipeline (5800 or even 5900) - That talk (if even true, its rumors right now) is around Oct. launch (dec on shelves) - Even at that when we look at the performance of the 2080 Super, does AMD have anything that can hit that level or beat Ti, that's a big question (for now). We should hear lots more noise out of Intel around Dec. from the gossip of it all - Intel may be the closet next (bigger) thing to come in graphics sector (maybe)... embargo(s) though do most likely mean there's something lurking around the corner though.
Well that upcoming 8192 core Arcturus GPU might be a sign that AMD is ready to build a gigantic (600mm2) 7nm die.
Thanks to Phoronix and its monitoring of Linux driver code, we now know Arcturus will be a Vega-based product, using the Vega20 GPU.
The 2080 Super is 15% faster than the 1080 Ti, while the Titan RTX is only 8% faster than the 2080 Ti.Isn't that basically like upgrading from 2080 Ti to Titan RTX?
According to reviews, looks like the gap to the 2080 Ti from the 2080 Super is about 22% at 256x1440 and 26% at 3840x2160 or with ray tracing.
The 2080 Super is 15% faster than the 1080 Ti, while the Titan RTX is only 8% faster than the 2080 Ti.
Well us 1080 Ti owners may just end up with a high end AMD card if they launch first next year or later this year. Game play wise, depending on the game, the 5700 XT and 1080 Ti are hard to tell apart. What I am looking for next year is a 5K monitor (Ultrawide), HDR 1000, at least 100hz (may not happen) like below but better:
Buy the EVGA Black Edition like I did then. It's 999 and offers a 25% increase in performance over the 1080Ti + <cough> the best Ray Tracing available. lol
