AMD just released their Radeon RX Vega family of graphics cards while NVIDIA has increased production with TSMC of their new 12nm Volta based GPU’s.
NVIDIA’s new Volta GPU’s will feature a 12nm process which both TSMC and NVIDIA have been ramping up together for a release of the new GPU’s in hopefully early 2018.
Just recently the CEO of of NVIDIA Jen-Hsun Huang was talking to investors about NVIDIA’s next-gen GPU and he replied saying the gamers shouldn’t be expecting Volta-based GPU GeForce card until end of 2017 or perhaps even early 2018.
“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” – Jen-Hsun Huang
Vega was meant to be released 18 months ago and only just being released now I don’t see NVIDIA being worried at all based of the current benchmarks we can see from both Vega 56 and 64. In fact it would not be surprising at all if NVIDIA teased their coming Volta-based GeForce cards coming close to the end of this year and then be ready for sale early next.
