During Nvidia’s investor day, statistics were revealed that show Turing architecture outsold the previous generation my a haughty 45% margin in terms of revenue on Desktop PC’s. This is the case when comparing it to the first eight weeks of sales vs. respective GPUs, when Nvidia was asked about this new delivery.
But wait, didn’t Nvidia say that just after Turing launched, they admitted these GPUs were disappointing? There was a bit more of an overall picture than just that however. So, the numbers and graphs Nvidia just shared indicate (among other things) that in the first eight weeks of Pascal (10-series) versus Turing sales revenue, the latter did 45% better as mentioned, when it comes to $299+ GPUs. In that post-launch period for Turing, the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 were on sale (and not the RTX 2060, which didn’t follow until the start of 2019).
So given that, we can safely assume that the RTX 2080 Ti under performed, and presumably also to some extent, the RTX 2080 – given that multiple ‘GPUs’ are mentioned, and it’s not unfair to call the RTX 2080 high-end considering that it weighs in at a retail price of $799 (£749, AU$1,199) for the Founders Edition (a hundred bucks less for other models). Which is more like what the average consumer will look to spend on an entire PC, not just a graphics card.
Yes, this is all theorizing, but it would seem to us that the new figures point to the RTX 2070 doing rather well, considering the previous comments about disappointment from the high-end Turing GPUs – and the fact that the RTX cards have apparently outsold Pascal by 45%.
