NVIDIA would be ready to retire GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards ahead of the debut of the new "Ampere" 3000 series GeForce RTX, expected in September.
According to the portal's recent report Ithome, the Californian manufacturer would have started the process that will lead (soon) to the stop of the production of the high-end GeForce RTX 2000 models based on Turing architecture, all to allow to empty the warehouse stocks in view of the new range of Ampere GPUs to 7nm.
According to what reported, this maneuver will affect high-end products, in particular:
- GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
- GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
- GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
- GeForce RTX 2070
Among these models, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti should be among the first to be withdrawn from the market and also the most recent RTX SUPER will be included in the process, a sign that NVIDIA could present several new models based on Ampere architecture.
A further report by mydriver It also suggests that the recent surge in demand for high-end graphics cards for cryptovlaute mining could speed up this transition, however, leading to a spike in prices given the limited availability of GeForce RTX 20 graphics cards.
Recall that the debut of the GeForce RTX 3000 is expected for mid-September – September 17 to be precise – therefore a possible (and probable) shortage of high-end GPUs several weeks after the launch of the products with GPU Ampere will inevitably lead to this scenario, all to the detriment of the consumer's pockets.
