I highly doubt they won't give the 1080ti a year lifespan. That means Volta won't be out until early 2018. Volta coming out this year would bring a major shift to the market.

Think that depends on how long they held back the ti, and lets be honest, nvidia arnt shy about pushing products out of the way if they think there is keching kaaa ching at the end of it.

It's true that they could earn a lot of money with Volta, but they could also earn a lot of money with the 1080ti. With nothing to match it they can continue to sell it at $700 and make a killing just like they did with the 980ti. Why rush out Volta when Pascal reigns supreme?

They could, but imagine how much money they will make droping the 1080ti price by $100 and dropping volta on peoples laps, how many here with 1080s which are more then enough for gaming right now just got rid of there 1080s like the were stolen and got 1080ti's because there the new shiney.

I don't think that's the way business works. If a product is already serving its purpose and is selling well and is manageable it will remain for sale in the current stack. There is no point rushing Volta out. People will sell their 1080ti's for it whether it's a year from now or eight months from now.

Normal buisness maybe, but they have a track record for this. If volta and just making up dates here, but if volta dropped july august time and it was lets say, 15% better in games.

People would buy it, and there are people who would die defending nvidia, sayings well the ti was late, it should have been earlier. We need it to go against vega etc etc etc
