It is almost certain that Nvidia intends to launch its new family of GPU Ampere in late 2020. Numerous details of the new graphics cards have been leaked in recent weeks, and it is already possible to get a sense of what we can expect for the next generation. The RTX 3000 series can come with a second chip dedicated to Ray Tracing, in addition to reaching an impressive 23 TFLOPs on its top-of-the-line card.
Now, new rumors indicate that the Taiwanese manufacturer begins to pave the way for the Ampere family by discontinuing four Turing models, RTX 2070, RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2080Ti. The information reinforces previous reports that pointed to the reduction of the company’s partner inventory, as well as the start of mass production of the new slabs in August.
With this measure, users end up being forced to buy Ampere models, even with the presence of RTX 2000 cards in the used car market. Prices are also expected to rise, given the possible return of high demand for cryptocurrency mining.
