This is odd for NVIDIA. They usually push out revised versions in the second year, not change the entire architecture to the new one.

Feels like they're feeling AMD breathing down their necks with their VEGA architecture, which should be very interesting.

AMD have also stepped up their game with ROCm which might take a chunk out of CUDA.




As I recall, Volta (3d memory) has been delayed multiple times due to supply and this is only a very limited release of their highest end hardware for deep learning all pegged for Q3/Q4 release. A field where they haven't really any competition.

Can't imagine we will be seeing any Volta GeForce cards released till next year.


Volta GeForce will come early 2018 likely with GDDR6 at this point.
