ITHome is reporting that NVIDIA is choosing to discontinue their current top-crop graphics cards which includes the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 Super and the RTX 2070 and are aiming to also have the cards delisted. With supplies dwindling as of late, it may just be chucked up due to the logistics challenges caused by the pandemic but it has already been speculated that NVIDIA may be aiming for a September release and with demands currently high, priming the market for an imminent release.
NVIDIA is allegedly guiding partners to increase prices for current-gen graphics cards due to a renewal of interest in cryptocurrency.
A local distributor (Philippine-based and will not be named) has corroborated this report, advising dealers that current top-end cards like the RTX 2080 TI are EOL with no stocks incoming. And then proceeded to advise dealers that the RTX 3000 is dropping on September 2020 and that reservations are now open. Prices were not disclosed.
NVIDIA is expected to make the GeForce RTX 3000 or RTX 30-series on September 17, 2020.
