NVIDIA will not only be launching their RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080, but the RTX 2070 towards the beginning of Q4-2018. Then you’ll likely have the RTX 2060 by the end of the year.
Reportedly NVIDIA has a massive inventory of unsold GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards. This is in the wake of the transition to the new generation, but also a slow-down in GPU-accelerated crypto-currency mining. It is likely that NVIDIA will cut-down prices on the GTX 1080 Ti, the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 Ti, and GTX 1060 to get rid of this inventory.
