    With virtually no competition on the high end gaming especially, they'll still milking the pascal architecture. In fact prices have gone up for the exact same model from original release.

    Volta was supposed to have been released in 2017 but with a poor RX Vega competitor from AMD, the pascal architecture was kept running to milk the situation.

    Standard practice, why release newer stuff when current is more than adequate.

    From what we have seen of Volta so far (Titan V and Xavier), I am starting to think it is utterly aimed at tensor workloads and uneconomic for graphics. That would tie in with AMD saying that Vega 7nm is primarily for AI use.

    Edit: Though I admit that sucks for us. I still can't decide on a ~£400 gpu so just stay with what I have.

    Last I heard, both Volta and Ampere are being skipped for GeForce line. Not sure how true that is for Ampere but I am pretty sure it's true for Volta. AMD have resigned Radeon major releases until 2019 anyway so what's the point.

    I would love to buy a new GPU but I just can't bring myself to spend £450 on tech that is so close to being replaced. My 980 is bumping along at 85-99% capacity so still holding its own for now.
