NVIDIA is all set to launch their next two hyped graphics cards. The speculation is ripe as to when the release will be; it is safe to assume that the cards can be purchased by this year-end. With the company getting ready to launch the full set of cards in the upcoming event, it is expected that only two products can be seen as the company has a history of launching its products in pairs.
The Card Schedule
The much-expected graphics cards from the company are the RTX 2070 and the XX60 card. But according to the recent news, it seems that the RTX 2080 Ti and the RTX 2080 will be the ones open for public purchase. With the much-created hype, NVIDIA is making its effort to get its products to the shelf by November. However, nothing can be finalized as there may be few unannounced changes in the schedule. Only assurance is that the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 can be purchased currently. With the company’s history and the following fan base, one has to book in advance to make sure he gets the card. The shelves will soon be empty otherwise.
It is unclear if the RTX 2070 and the GTX/RTX 2060 will be announced at the launch. But the fact is, whether it is announced or not, the two graphics cards are not going to hit the market anytime soon. The customers will have to wait till late October or in some cases, early November. The only feasible reason for this delay is that since the company has a history of its stock getting over immediately after launch, NVIDIA is taking the time to get ready with enough supply.
How is it going to be?
It all depends on the pricing factor too. Nevertheless, the two graphics cards RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 have already created a high demand in its category. So the shelves’ running out of these cards is a sure factor. The market it captures will anyhow depend on its price range. Another advantage for NVIDIA is that after the announcement the sale of cards GeForce GTX Ti and GTX 1080 is assumed to rise.
This should be a satisfying factor for Jensen, the CEO of NVIDIA as the previous quarter for the company was not so good. This was a result of a significant drop in cryptocurrency mining. While the MSRP may be reduced the sale and profits are definitely to peak.
The decision regarding the RTX handle for the 2060 card is still hanging. The assumption is left to the public until further announcement. One thought is that NVIDIA might detach the XX60 offering from the rest of XX60 series. This, however, will create an issue as the RT engine is not powerful enough to handle the upcoming VFX libraries. Chances are the RT engine might be disabled, and the company might go for a plain GTX 2060. For graphics cards, we have just to wait and watch.
