NVIDIA 7nm Ampere GPU delayed because Turing is doing so great?

Raymond James analyst Chris Caso speculates delayed its 7nm Ampere GPUs because of the success of the current Turing generation. The first Turing GPUs were launched in September 2018 and it doesn't seem like we'll get a successor anytime soon. Caso believes NVIDIA will reveal 7nm GPUs for the datacenter market in March 2020, with a consumer version to follow at Computex in June.
Caso further states NVIDIA will launch its first 7nm Ampere GPUs in the data center market next year, likely at GTC 2020, which runs from March 22 to March 26. Then at Computex 2020 in Taipei, which runs from June 2 to June 6, NVIDIA will launch consumer cards built around 7nm Ampere, Caso believes.

The rumor points to NVIDIA focusing on the high end initially, including GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards with Ampere inside. Then sometime later, we would see more affordable GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3060 cards.
