Any idea on ETA for GTX 2060 & 2050?

Just watched a Tech Yes City video about the RTX 2070 being a value RTX card & got me wondering what the 2060 & 2050 would be like whenever they come out: 

 

I was thinking about possibly upgrading within the next month or 2 from a GTX 780 (Asus Direct CU II OC) that I paid $175 Canadian for 2 years ago(November 2016) to something newer that uses less power & better performance, like a GTX 1060 or equivilent Radeon RX Card & was wondering based on current speculation/rumors/leaks if I should upgrade now or hold out and wait? Currently there are 2 options local though I'm not sure what of the 2 is better or if they will still be available in 2+ weeks, they are:

GTX 1060 3GB Founders Edition for $170 Canadian.

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 470 8GB, 6 available, $170 each or $1000 for all 6. (Makes me think possibly a miner selling off their cards)

I'm thinking of whatever one of those 2 offers the best performance/watt depending on availibility in 2+ weeks & will also be looking on ebay when the time comes, I'm thinking max budget of $200 Canadian (about $152.60 USD currently according to google) with $150 to $175 ($114.45 to $133.52 USD currently) prefered.

Think videocardz leaked some info on 2060 and 2050, along with 2080Ti, 2080 and 2070. the info on 2070 and above was pretty accurate.

I can't remember where the video was, if I find it i'll link it here. All I remember was 2050 was $100 MSRP or somewhere there

Not sure if these cards will exist to be honest, I've been keeping up and havent seen anything that could be related. When the 10 series came out they released all of them, then released the 1070 ti (and I think the 1050 ti) a year later. I mean if theyre just releasing the 2080/2080ti and 2070 (i think theres a 2070 ti coming, dont quote me on that) it probably wont be for a bit. Pay attention to AMD because their gpu's are rumored..

I think I saw the GTX 2060 somewhere though I forget where, for some reason the RTX launch event comes to mind, though nothing for cards below that.

as for release date, I'm seeing sometime next year (2019) for the 2060 & 2050.

Looking at wikipedia for the 10 series launch dates, May 2016 was the 1080 launch with the 1070 in June , 1060 6GB in July, Titan X & 1060 3GB in August, October was the launch of the 1050 2GB & 1050Ti (4GB), 2017 brought the 1080 Ti in March, Titan Xp in April, GT 1030 in May, 1070 Ti in November & 1060 5GB in December, 2018 sofar brought the GT 1030 DDR4 in March & 1050 3GB in May with news lately about a 1060 6GB with GDDR5X & GP104 GPU (1070, 1070 Ti & 1080) to counter the RX 590.

yeah I literally just saw some stuff about the 2060.

What cpu do you have? If the cpu isn't powerful then the rtx cards will bottleneck and not perform to their full potential because of your cpu

The direct cu cooler design was arguably one of the best cooler designs ever made, and it's my all-time favorite, hands down. A 1060 3gb might even provide worse performance if you got a cheap one with a bad cooler, so I'd say hold out for the rumored RX 590 or the 1060 GDDR5X edition to get a real upgrade.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The 2070 is a joke, used 1080tis are near it's price point

 

It's unliekly any other 20 series cards will be decently priced, the 2060 is likely just going to be a die shrunk 1070 at best, pretty sure I heard that RTX stops at the 2070

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I Had a i5-2500k but Mobo & PSU started acting up & needed to be replaced so I replaced the old PSU with a EVGA Supernova G2 550W & for CPU & Mobo I Decided to upgrade to Ryzen with a Ryzen 3 1200 that I plan on OCing if possible in a Gigabyte AB350-Gaming Mobo, Just waiting on RAM (1x4GB of Corsair Vengence LPX 2400MHz) to arrive sometime this week (Estimated delivery is for Thursday though may arrive earlier, don't have tracking info so not sure).

Money is tight with me being unemployed on a fixed monthly income, I'm thinking of upgrading both RAM & GPU in November if I can afford it or at least get RAM (thinking 2x4GB of 3000MHz) then get the GPU in December or January with plans on upgradeing the CPU to at least a R5 2600 around April or whenever the Ryzen 3000 series/Zen 2 comes out.

They will. They are selling 2070 and above at price to performance such that it wont impact sales of 10 series, as they have oversupply due to them betting too hard on mining. Once the 10 series cards are sold out, they will reduce prices of 2070 and above, then release 2050 and 2060.

I heard that also, RTX (Ray Tracing) will be 2070, 2080 & 2080Ti only, but there will likely be lower cards such as the 2060 & 2050 that use the old GTX name with no Ray Tracing/RTX.

the 2060 and 2050 wont have anywhere near enough horsepower to run ray tracing, considering the 2080Ti only hits 60fps at 1080p with ray tracing turned on.
