Nvidia's Turing graphics cards will coexist with Pascal until at least Q1 2019

It will take a while for Turing to completely replace Pascal.



Read more about Nvidia's Turing GPUs coexisting with pascal until early 2019.

Surplus stock.

/tinfoil hat on

Could Turing revision 1 have intentionally been downgraded to coexist with the 1000 series?

Think of it like this.

1. many users know a new card was coming and refused to buy a 1000 series. //the endless wait begins

2. Mining craze dies, so Nvidia/AMD both stuck with huge surplus stock.

3. RTX released with performance on par with 1080Ti. Meaning, early adopters will pay the outrageous price on the new card. Nvidia capitalise on new tech. Intentional high price to sway users to buy up the previous series stock.

4. Users not willing to fork out the cost, decide to opt for the 1080ti instead. Nvidia capitalise on exhausting the surplus goods.

5. Nvidia profit from both architectures. Now surplus is gone, proceed to release a true full fat Turing card with RTX + increased performance gains.

Wow, really shows how much of the baby Nvidia were left holding if they don't think it will clear until next year.

I expect much bigger price drops to come, then. That may be why Turing is so expensive. They may literally be doing a Cartmanland with it until Pascal has shifted (at higher prices, as it looks really cheap compared to Turing).

One day I really hope a company can come up with a scheme that is harder for me to see through and not feel like they are totally ripping me off.

They won't have to drop prices as long as there is no proper competition, so they won't.

Will have to wait until 2020 when Intel releases discreet cards I reckon.

Yep, I see no reason for price to drop. However, even if NVidia did drop the MSRP. We then need the etailers to resist the greed, and drop prices on their shelves also.

Much of the time, places like overclockers take advantage of the reduction and maintain their RRP. It does make sense too, since they do not make "that" much profit on these cards at their current cost.

Perhaps it is different in UK/US, but in Norway my local retailer who I have a good standing with now, states they barely making anything from the sales, Nvidia ask too much from the get go. They rely on users buying a card, and also purchasing other products to go with it, e.g. watercooling/TIM pastes/cables etc.
