NVIDIA's Post-Vega Strategy
Depending on multiple factors, NVIDIA will be able to crush anything AMD throws at them - short of a massive surprise. AMD will have to have either:
- Faster cards, at the same price.
- Similar performance, but cheaper.
If we see the fastest Radeon RX Vega not beating the GTX 1080 Ti, then NVIDIA won't have anything to worry about. In the case that the fastest SKU of Radeon RX Vega beats the pants off of the GTX 1080 Ti, then NVIDIA has to simply drop the price of their GTX 1080 Ti - all without releasing a new product.
Better yet, NVIDIA could lose money on their cards and sell them at, or below cost in order to crush Team Red.
GeForce GTX 20 Series
I reported on the purported GeForce GTX 2080 and its various GTX 20 series cards in October last year, with the GTX 2080 to rock a refreshed GP102 GPU - something that could explain the relationship between NVIDIA and Samsung. In August 2016, I reported that Samsung would be making GPUs for NVIDIA on its 14nm FinFET process, which is a strange move considering NVIDIA has had TSMC as their manufacturing partner for what feels like forever.
Speculated specifications on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 20 series graphics cards:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti - GP102/3384/384-bit/GDDR6
