Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

According to the Chinese website ITHome, four NVIDIA graphics cards will soon be retired, as the manufacturer is allegedly planning to discontinue their production.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080/2070 Series going EOL?

The report claims that NVIDIA has started the phase of discontinuation and delisting of their current high-end series based on Turing architecture. The flagship model GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has not been updated ever since it came out, will also be included in the delisting process, meaning the manufacturer is likely making space for the upcoming Ampere RTX series.

Allegedly discontinued GeForce RTX 20 graphics cards:

  • GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
  • GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
  • GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER
  • GeForce RTX 2070

The SUPER series which were released last year will also be included in the delisting process. This could further confirm that NVIDIA is planning a big reveal of more than just one graphics card.

Second mining craze to inflate pricing

It is also rumored that due to the delisting and discontinuation of the current series, a shortage of high-end graphics cards is to be expected. Another Chinese website MyDrivers reported last week that NVIDIA has sent out an internal notice to their Add-in-Card partners (AICs). According to the information, NVIDIA expects an increase in demand for their graphics cards as the interest in cryptocurrency mining is growing.

A possible launch date for GeForce 30 Series

We have so far not heard any date of the possible launch for the upcoming Ampere series. This is to be expected as there far too many factors to consider when planning ahead. Especially under such circumstances, where global pandemic has disturbed the production and shipping of many products. However, ITHome also reports that a possible launch of the upcoming GeForce RTX 30 series is currently expected on September 17th.

We are not sure how accurate this date is, but this would be almost exactly two years after RTX 20 series, which were announced on August 20th and released a month later, on September 20th.
