Apparently, NVIDIA decided to stop production of the current range of GeForce RTX 20 graphics cards based on the Turing architecture, in order to prepare the launch for the next wave, the highly anticipated RTX 3000 ‘Ampere’.
This information comes to us through the ‘leaker’ Ithome, who has not only advanced with the stop in production, but also with the information that the vast majority of stores will start to remove the ‘old’ plates from their databases.
NVIDIA halted production of the high-end and premium-range RTX 2000s
Therefore, according to this information, NVIDIA stopped producing the following cards:
- GeForce RTX 2080 Super and 2080 Ti (The RTX 2080 is no longer in production since the launch of its Super version)
- GeForce RTX 2070 and SUPER 2070
Thus, all plates removed from the production lines are part of the high-end or enthusiastic segment. However, there are a number of different GPUs at stake here, as the RTX 2080 Ti uses the TU102 GPU, while the RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 Super are based on the TU104, and finally, the RTX 2070 uses the TU106 GPU.
The price will increase in the coming weeks
As you can imagine, as stocks disappear from the shelves, the price will also increase. Especially at this point in the championship when mining seems to be slowly returning.
However, this can be good news for the price of the new RTX 3000 cards!
At the launch of RTX 2000, the market was still suffering strong and ugly from the mining phenomenon. For this reason, many of the reference stores were forced to artificially increase the price of the components in order to prevent them from disappearing without a trace. (While earning a few more change in the process, and trying to ship the cheapest but oldest GTX 10)
