Yesterday, ITHome reported that NVIDIA is planning to discontinue its RTX 20-series GPU cards, indicating that NVIDIA has started to suspend the production of these cards and delist them in stores. GPU cards that are said to be delisted include the RTX 2080Ti, RTX 2080 Super, RTX 2070, RTX 2070 Super, and RTX 2060.
While this may mean a shortage for high-end GPU cards, NVIDIA is reportedly doing this in time for the possible September release of the RTX 30-series. This has been corroborated by Back2Gaming, where a Philippines-based distributor has advised dealers that the RTX 2080Ti is already End-of-Line (EoL), with no stocks incoming. In addition, Back2Gaming’s source also disclosed that reservations for the RTX 30-series GPU cards are open, though there is no advise yet when it comes to pricing.
Rumored features of RTX 30-series GPU cards include Ampere-based architecture, along with an increase in memory bus and bandwidth and use of GDDR6X memory.
