Another day ,  another article about the incoming AMpere card...
 
https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-rtx-3080-ampere-launch-by-september
 
 
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how it's a terrible time to buy a graphics card—at least a high-end card. The reasoning is simple: Nvidia's Ampere GPUs are coming soon, and AMD's Big Navi isn't far behind. If you want yet another reason to not buy a high-end card, however, just look at prices. Six months ago, the RTX 2080 Ti could be found for around $1,050, and the RTX 2080 Super was regularly available for $650. Now, you'd be lucky to find either GPU at the original launch prices of $1,200 and $700. If that's not enough to go on, I've heard some companies will have 'final' Ampere GPUs as early as next week.

    It does seem like September will likely be the launch but what we don't know is what the launch will be. We could be looking at a "Launch" that is just saying today you can order the cards and they will ship ship out a month later. That means a show at the end of September could be have people waiting until about November for these new cards to be in hand or possibly later.

    I'd look at the past 2080Ti launch ... factor in the CV-19 disruption & guess what ever launches will be in short supply at first

    true, doesn't matter if it's paper or hard launch -- we won't see any until late in year & beyond.......

    September should be an interesting month. I'm curious about releases from both AMD and NVIDIA.

    Intel should also be interesting to see what the next GPU from them is since it should launch around then as well.

    Apple's iPhone 12 will be delayed till Oct. or so they say so I wouldn't be surprised if the same happens to Ampere.

    I imagine a lot of members here will be waiting for the Ti version anyway, certainly that is the case for me (ideally an EVGA Hybrid Ti version).

    Even if it was a hard launch (which seems unlikely), the demand already seems to be higher than normal for the launch. Throw in a second stimulus check and you can bet a lot of people will be eyeing a "critical" PC upgrade this fall, since it will be needed for work, or school, or gaming while staying home. Might even be doing well just to have solid stock for the winter holidays at launch prices, but hopefully it won't be that bad. Need a good hard launch to minimize the scalping.

    I think the important point here is pricing between Big Navi and Ampere. If AMD can make a video card better than the RTX 2080ti I think NVIDIA will have a problem if Ampere is priced significantly higher.

    Agreed. Especially since it is a fairly niche market for people who can effectively utilize RTX 2080 Ti+ performance.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    AMD admitted early in the year that their GPUs needed improvement to compete with NVIDIA. The 5XXX series is a very good 1080p gaming video card series. Now AMD needs a high end video card. If AMD can release a GPU that beats the RTX2080ti at lower cost I might be tempted to buy an AMD video card this year.

    I take any rumors with a huge grain of salt, but without a doubt the 2080 Ti is sold out almost everywhere.

    I'm in the same boat, but they better have good supply at launch. And hopefully at least an anouncement with teasers before Nvidia's drop. Because as it sits right this second, if I see a Sub 1000 dollar RTX 3080 for sale, I'm pretty sure I know where my money is going to go. Been 4 years+ since GPU upgrade, have a completely new system, everything is golden, just missing a good 4K GPU. I'd like to see one sub 1000... First to display one, gets my money.

    I think you did call it.
     
    Only question left is...  Does the Ampere 2080ti killer release during the initial consumer Ampere launch?
