It will soon be a year since the announcement of the RTX 30 series cards from NVIDIA and with the line still incomplete without the entry-level SKUs, NVIDIA may be filling the top-end first with the RTX 3080 Ti now seeing an imminent launch.
Intel is well on it way as discrete GPU competitor and now photos of engineering samples of Intel's Xe-HPG DG2 GPUs have surfaced. These cards are expected to perform much like an RTX 3070 or RTX 3080.
