Back in July, we heard rumblings that NVIDIA was winding down its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2070 graphics cards. Chinese tech site MyDrivers has echoed part of that sentiment in a new report published yesterday, which claims that the RTX 2070 SUPER has, in fact, been discontinued. Apparently, what’s on shelves right now could be the very last batch of super-charged RTX 2070 GPUs we’ll ever see, so if you want one, you’ll probably want to pick one up ASAP.
The GeForce RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 series are still going strong, though, especially due to the recent uptick in mining activity. According to a separate report, vendors can barely keep up with the demand, which has led to substantial price increases.
“It is said that the shipment prices of RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 SUPER chips have increased by 15 to 20 US dollars and 5 to 8 yuan, respectively, and the factory prices of various models of the RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 series will generally increase by 30 to 40 yuan,” MyDrivers noted.
Additionally, the author claims that NVIDIA’s upcoming Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 Series will launch on September 17. We’ll supposedly be getting the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3080 first, with the RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 series showing up in October and November, respectively.
