NVIDIA announced its new Turing video cards for gaming today, including the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, and RTX 2070. The cards move forward with an upgraded-but-familiar Volta architecture, with some changes to the SMs and memory. The new RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti ship with reference cards first, and partner cards about 1-3 months after that, depending on which partner it is. The board partners did not receive pricing or even card naming until around the same time as media, so expect delays in custom solutions.
A major upgrade, and pricing – starting at $599 for the 2070 – is entirely reasonable for a new generation. Might finally be time to upgrade my 1070 once EK Waterblocks releases waterblocks for these new cards.
Is this sarcasm?
Nvidia just lost the plot with the pricing of this generation. Customers should not reward monopolistic behavior like this.
Probable cash grab before intel and amd competing products get on to the market.
This is what happens when competition wanes in the market place.
