Nvidia apparently is preparing to launch the RTX 3000 amp graphics cards soon, according to Wccftech, citing the China Times (page has been taken offline).
Accordingly, RTX 3080 and Co should launch in the course of the third quarter of 2020. This is in line with previous information that predicted a release in October. In the course of this, the prices for the RTX 2000 should also fall.
What exactly does China Times say?
According to the China Times (via Wccftech, machine translated), the graphics card market has learned that from »Second quarter of the third quarter« "(Editor's note: due to the machine translation, there are ambiguities here, but it should refer to a date in the third quarter) at least three new GPUs based on the ampere architecture be introduced and replace the previous high-end graphics cards RTX 2080/2070 (Super).
The first wave of products is therefore to be listed with retailers before the end of the third quarter, and further products would appear in the following two quarters.
RTX 2000 price cuts
Since the text is a machine translation, some details, such as precise prices or price reductions, are unclear. In essence, the statements can be summarized as follows:
Asus is said to have lowered the prices for several RTX 2000 cards. More precisely, there is talk of “spot prices”, which should mean wholesale prices. Gigabyte and MSI followed. This should make the sales prices significantly more attractive.
A price reduction or the deletion of the inventory, in turn, is seen as a clear indication of preparation for the RTX-3000 graphics cards.

Indications of the autumn release continue to grow
A few weeks ago, there was growing evidence that Nvidia's RTX 3000 amps could appear in the fall.
As a Bloomberg columnist and Tweaktown reported, a release at the Computex 2020 computer fair, which was postponed from early June to 28th to 30th September, was considered realistic.
Other rumors say that Nvidia wants to wait for AMD's next steps in the graphics card segment before launching new GPUs. However, this does not necessarily rule out an autumn release.
New official details on the amp architecture should be on May 14th. At 3:00 p.m. Central European Summer Time, Nvidia wants to catch up on the keynote speech for the unusual GPU Technology Conference (GTC).
