NVIDIA share prices plummets due to disappointing GeForce RTX 20-series

The embargo for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series cards have just been lifted, and most reviewers cited the same concerns. The GeForce RTX 2080 offers minor gains over the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but is priced slightly higher than the older card. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti card’s performance is unprecedented, but it is also matched by an equally huge price gap from the older cards.

After some huge claims and promises from Jensen Huang, when the reviews came out, the cards proved to be quite a flop. And investors seem to agree, with NVIDIA’s stock prices dropping from a high which coincidentally was before the reviews were published.

NVIDIA has jam-packed the Turing GPUs in the GeForce RTX with future-ready technologies like Tensor cores and raytracing cores, but their potential in gaming is yet to be fully exploited. That made what NVIDIA released looks like very expensive upgrades for little performance gains. At least for now.

Pokdepinion: Probably no reason to get the GeForce RTX cards now if you have a GTX 1080 Ti.
