Nvidia's Turing series of GPUs are expected to enter mass production in Q3

Will today's mining madness be over by then?



Read more about Nvidia's Turing series of GPUs.

Oddly enough I have seen three mining PCs broken down and sold recently. I don't know why.. We shall see I guess. That is a long way off though :S

by that time, there will be no coin profitable to mine. So Nvidia will take a huge owned.

Q3 makes more sense. Wait for a lull in mining, stockpile GDDR6, Pascal still rules the roost.

They will wait for the outcome of all these legislative pushes on cryptocurrency.

If it passes then miners will dump their cards on the used market and move towards ASIC providers like Bitmain. If this happens, well mining GPUs will never take off.

So it would seem that the Turing name was more of a nod to AI capability than cryptography? certainly good news though. looks like 2018 may actually have a bit of excitement in the hardware space after all.

Or, make a buttload of cards useless for anything else and then find that you have no one left to sell them to.

Why do I become aroused when I say that first sentence? possibly because it would serve them bloody right.

I know this might be a simplistic way of looking at things, but surely Nvidia only has to create enough to cater to the mining market so that they can get GeForce into gamers hands again, and no more. They don't need to make 3 millions mining GPUs since miners have already bought three million cards. If they can balance their manufacturing and inventory right, they should be able to trickle mining-dedicated GPUs without 'flooding' the market. Plus, even if mining as a craze drops off, there will still be people mining or at the very least still people preparing for another mining craze. Not to suggest I'm a mining expert, but that's the way I see it. If I invested $50k into a business and the business goes through a lull, I wouldn't just offload at a loss all my investments. If I could afford to invest $50k in an unstable market, I can afford to hold onto my investments until the right time arises again.

If it's Q3 I'm giving them the finger tbh. That's way, way too far away period.

Edit: the original article is extremely vague and mentions it briefly whilst referring to the ever cryptic 'sources':

Quote:
Since profitability from graphics cards has been weakening, Nvidia and AMD have both been decelerating the developments of their new GPU architectures and prolonging their existing GPU platforms' lifecycle, the sources said, adding Nvidia's next-generation GPU architecture Turing will not enter the mass production until the third quarter.
I'm not taking this seriously until we have all the facts in straight from Nvidia. Sorry for being cautious.
