During the company's second quarter earnings call with financial analysts, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang provided a little color about the Volta pipeline for the consumer market.

Huang hinted they have "some exciting new toys for gamers" but added that Pascal will be "unbeatable" for the holiday season for the foreseeable future. His comments suggest we won't be seeing Volta-based gaming GPUs until sometime in 2018.
Jen-Hsun Huang - NVIDIA Corp.
Volta for gaming, we haven't announced anything. And all I can say is that our pipeline is filled with some exciting new toys for the gamers, and we have some really exciting new technology to offer them in the pipeline. But for the holiday season for the foreseeable future, I think Pascal is just unbeatable. It's just the best thing out there. And everybody who's looking forward to playing Call of Duty or Destiny 2, if they don't already have one, should run out and get themselves a Pascal.
