Well there are many other reasons as well, the story line you hear is what the company wants you to hear. Big corporations are Spin Doctors with a Masters Degree and a PHD and a Doctoral and a

Definitely. The surplus they used as reason has to be exaggerated that they posted a loss mainly because of inventory costs. They're trying to steer investors into thinking once they get rid of the old stock they'll start making money again.

 

I say they didn't get enough pre-orders before launch on their RTX cards and they had to adjust their expectations. Even so now that it's not actually selling well because they tried to pull an "à la Apple" on folks. It was like their version of VEGA, much expectation yet so expensive.


You can bark like a dog, but that won't make you a dog.

You can act like someone you're not, but that won't change who you are.

 

Finished Crysis without a discrete GPU,15 FPS average, and a lot of heart

 

How I plan my builds -

Spoiler

For me I start with the "There's no way I'm not gonna spend $1,000 on a system."

Followed by the "Wow I need to buy the OS for a $100!?"

Then "Let's start with the 'best budget GPU' and 'best budget CPU' that actually fits what I think is my budget."

Realizing my budget is a lot less, I work my way to "I think these new games will run on a cheap ass CPU."

Then end with "The new parts launching next year is probably gonna be better and faster for the same price so I'll just buy next year."

Nvidia (mostly) makes and sells GPUs, not graphics cards (ok they do make graphics cards, but Titans mostly, and started recently to make Founder Editions models of select cards for consumers, which cost more and not as good). Graphics card manufactures are not buying them, probably because they don't want to be stuck with ones that don't sell.

 

So,

  • Nvidia is stuck with too many GPUs, especially that they miss judge miners future demand.
  • Manufacture are not making them because now the 10 series is old, or only doing low production number, making the production price increase, increasing the price at retail
  • And, in addition, due to the low supply and high demand, retailers charges more.

so we can hope that new budget oriented graphic cards based on pascal will be released :) on 20 series
something like 2050Ti will be same chip of 1070 ?


coz they have lots of extra chips laying around and not selling or vendors like Asus/gigabyte not buying to make more 10 series cards, so only way to push them is by rebranding it as new budget cards ?

Well I'll argue that the RTX 20 series are just Pascal chip with some tweaks here and there to make it faster, with Ray Tracing cores slap on it, as the actual next generation chip was supposed to be Volta.

(Yes, Pascal is missing from the graph, and magically appeared once Volta unofficially got delayed (no date was ever set for it until later, when the roadmap was revise with Pascal added in between))

 

We do know that the lower end card won't have the RTX branding, as they have too few core for Ray Tracing to be actually useful (but watch Nvidia still attempt at this, with its usual model that makes no sense, next to the GeForce 2030 DDR3 model which will still be a low-end Fermi chip, or whatever old junk). So will there is Pascal? Maybe.. but i expect them to turn off some cores and reduce the performance of them and rebrand the GPUs, and sell them as GeForce GT 2050 or something. Or just through them away and take the hit.

Not really. Turing inherits Volta architecture and adds the RTX hardware. The only missing thing is the HBM2.

Regarding the roadmap, Volta was simply moved as an exclusive HPC product to promote Nvidia's Tensor DNN acceleration and to serve as a platform to integrate the expensive HBM2 memory -- none of those were suitable for the consumer market. Then Pascal came to fill the gap between Maxwell and Turing for the consumers, as a test vehicle for the 16nm production, with minimum investment in the architecture to speed up the roll-out. It was essentially Maxwell 3.0 with several tweaks for faster VR, updated video codec, but mostly utilizing the smaller fabrication node to bump up the clock rate, as the main performance benefit.

Took a BIG hit there - anyone holding this stock?
