The GTX 10 Series lineup is nearing the end of life now that the company has launched the full blown Pascal chip in its TITAN XP graphics card as well as the silent launch of the super low end, GTX 1030. However, according to the information given by MyDrivers, the GTX 20-Series event has been pushed forward to a launch sometime in the third quarter of this year.
WCCF Tech reported that the reason given for this move is that the profits from the sales were not up to the expectation of the management. It can also be due to the fact that the R&D and yield related costs were too high or that the upgrade cycle wasn't properly utilized.
Therefore, the release of the GeForce GTX 20-Series graphics cards is planned for Q3 2017 to fully capitalize on the lack of a competitor and increase market share. Even if Vega launches, it is unlikely it will be able to go toe to toe with NVIDIA's highest end.
