A break from your regular Intel briefing

The majority of today's news will cover Intel's wide range of announcements from their architecture day, with new Optane DIMMs seeking to reduce latency to come close to matching that of DRAM to Foveros chiplets and hints of coming in off the Lake to spend some time in a Sunny Cove.  Indeed there are more links below the fold offering more coverage as yesterdays announcements  were very dense.

That might overshadow a rumour which dedicated discrete GPUs lovers would be interested in, the fact that NVIDIA might be able to get the RTX 2060 to market before AMD can launch a Navi based card.  The Inquirer has seen rumours that NVIDIA might be able to release the card in the first half of 2019, while the 7nm Navi isn't expected until the second half of year.  The early supply of mid-range NVIDIA GPUs might attract buyers who no longer want to wait; though depending on how Navi performs they could come to regret that lack of patience.

"GRAPHICS CARDS IN 2019 are set to get a good bit more interesting, as a leak suggests that Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 could reach the market before AMD's next-gen Navi Radeon cards."

Nvidia could have released an RTX 2060 before even today if they did not have so much remaining Pascal based inventory! So that's a no brainer there for Nvidia and most definilely Nvidia can do an RTX 2060 and lower RTX bins before Navi is to market, that's not news.

RTX Turing is already fully baked and ready to go, but there is still too much Pascal Inventory yet to be sold and Nvidia would have to price its RTX 2060 very low in order to not have folks passing that up for Nvidia's Pascal deals. It's not like Nvidia upped the ROP counts on Turing above what is already available on Pascal, amd most games are still raster oriented and that has not changed very much this early in Turing's product lifecycle.

while nothing is guaranteed, "performance" in this case is basically a moot point.

navi chips will be priced accordingly, making Jeremy's last statement all the more relevant.

nvidia preparing their mid-range lineup for release only serves to confirm that navi is nigh. nigh!
