Word is going around that NVIDIA is preparing a Turing refresh to counter AMD's upcoming Navi GPUs. The latter are expected to be shown to the general public on June 10, Navi is not expected to be a new high-end series but a successor to the mainstream Polaris architecture. The actual launch of Navi will likely take place a couple of months later, perhaps late September.

PCGamesN picked up rumors that NVIDIA will ship GeForce RTX 20-series video cards with 16Gbps GDDR6 memory, which is a nice increase versus the 14Gbps memory used on today's models.
The rumour has come from RedGamingTech’s latest video, where it claims a source has given it the scoop. In the video it says Nvidia is “planning to launch a series of Turing GPUs with 16Gbps memory, which is a significant uptick in clockspeed form the 14Gbps we currently have.”
By the time Navi hits the market, Turing will have been on the market for roughly one year, so a refresh of some sorts does make sense.
