DigiTimes is usually a solid source for GPU news out of Taiwan, and today it has a couple of interesting statements that pertain to the GPU market. First and foremost, DigiTimes states that both AMD and NVIDIA "have both been decelerating the developments of their new GPU architectures and prolonging their existing GPU platforms' lifecycle." While rumored speculation has NVIDIA releasing it next-gen Turing GPU releasing everywhere from yesterday to next year, little fact is still known on this, but DigiTimes says today that Turing will not go into mass production till Q318. As for AMD's next-gen Navi, we are firmly betting on 2019.
Nvidia has recently started placing restrictions on its downstream graphics card partners, forbiding[sic] them to publicly promote cryptocurrency mining activities or actively sell its consumer graphics cards to miners, the sources said. Nvidia hopes to shift its main sales target back to consumers in the gaming market, the sources added.
