Hopefully this rumour is wrong as the price of the current high end cards from NVIDIA have finally stabilized at prices bearing some slight resemblance to their original MSRP. If it is true, the next generation of GPUs from NVIDIA will be priced based on their assumption that cryptomining will be coming back in vogue and people will be willing to pay a higher price for the new cards. We are still expecting to see these Turing cards arrive at the end of August, built on TSMC's 12nm process and introducing a new connector for VR headsets, which requires only a single cord.
The Inquirer doesn't have any guesses on what the prices may be, they do have links to the source of the rumours though.
"Digitimes has some additional info, though, and claims to have heard from 'industry sources' that the incoming Turing-based GPUs will be "priced higher" than Nvidia's current GTX 1080/1070 graphics cards."
