NVIDIA Volta cards coming in Q3 2017?

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 18 2017 @ 13:09 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Some fresh NVIDIA Volta rumors popped up at Asian tech site MyDrivers. The site claims that NVIDIA originally intended to launch its Volta GPUs in early 2018, but that NVIDIA changed its plans last quarter and is now going to launch the first Volta desktop cards in Q3 2017. Here's a quick overview of the new rumors, as always I recommend to take this with a grain of salt:
  • Pascal lineup is complete now that NVIDIA launched Titan Xp and is about to launch GeForce GTX 1030
  • Based on their traditional upgrade cycle we should expect Volta by the end of the year or early 2018, but NVIDIA changed plans
  • Market situation in Q1-2017 was bad, graphics and other hardware sales in decline, price war, meager profits, sales not increasing the way they want to (vicious circle)
  • According to the latest news, NVIDIA plans to release GeForce 20 series in advance, it is now expected to be released in the third quarter of this year
  • GeForce 20 series product prices, market positioning will be replanned
  • By launching sooner than expected they will be able to increase prices of single cards and increase profits
  • The site also claims there's one more Pascal based part on the way, a low-end GeForce GTX 1030.
