    It's the nature of any publicly traded company.
    Once you reach certain numbers (margins, revenue, profit) anything less than the last quarter means you are under-performing.

    I like Anandtechs live blog format.

    Turing is a monster.

    Has Volta basically been replaced already?

    Volta is old. However, Volta has really high double precision performance. Doesn't see that NVIDIA is stressing double precision with Turing. It definitely looks like an architecture split for different markets now.

    I see no reason to believe that Turing isn’t Volta with FP64 removed and RT engines added. In which case it’s as much an architecture split was it was for GP100 and GP102...

    And the name difference is to differentiate target market only?

    That. And the fact that it has ray tracing.

    JHH talks about TIPS (terra integer per second) in the presentation, and states that they can’t do this concurrently with TFLOPS. That’s a core Volta characteristic right there.

    NVIDIA Open Sourced a Video-to-Video Translation Technique using PyTorch – and it is Super Impressive

    Was there ever confirmation or acknowledgment of excessive Pascal inventory? Don’t recall anything besides the Digitimes rumor article.

    Pascal prices have gradually come down to MSRP levels but I would expect deeper discounts if there was oversupply. It’s either stock levels are actually ok or Pascal is still going to be around for a while and there’s no rush to clear inventory.

    There are theories out there that NVIDIA priced RTX cards high enough so that they don't interfere with the prices of the overstock of pascal cards.

    I wouldn't be surprised the slightest if there will be a big price cut on RTX's before the holiday season - given they get rid of the assumed excess stock of Pascals

    Apparently the AIBs are making very little off RTX. Combined with the FE pricing, I highly doubt prices will be going down anytime soon. The only way that would happen is if Nvidia cut FE pricing and give discounts to AIBs but Nvidia are in too strong financial position to need price cuts.

    AIBs are free in the pricing. If they are making very little than their prices are to low.

    Probably, but we don't know that do we? And they can't just throw an extra $100 margin on the cards. They're competing with each other AND Nvidia FE. All which are way above this supposed MSRP. The point was that supposedly their costs from Nvidia and making the GPUs is very high and their margins are in the 3% area which makes the MSRP absolute bullshit. That or the AIBs are spinning misinformation.

    Competing with yourself is actually a lot less fun than it sounds....

    Not a native English speaker, so let's go with a drop. Thought cut would mean the same (because the same term in finnish means price going down)

    I think what Carsten meant is:

    Cut: an official price cut from NVIDIA across all partners and AIBs.
    Drop: an unofficial price cut transmitted through the back channels and distributors
