In a Digitimes article covering the gaming notebook sector, the news outlet cites industry watches expecting NVIDIA to launch its next GPU series late in the third quarter. There have been a lot of rumors and speculation concerning when these highly expected GPUs will finally launch, with a number of suggested launch and announcement dates already behind us. This new expectation is based on the belief there will be significant increase in demand for gaming notebooks in H2 from gamers wanting to upgrade their systems following the release of the new GeForce cards.
Technically this is still a rumor and WCCFtech does point out one scenario that is probably not what any gamer would want to see; a staggered launch. It is possible, if highly unlikely, for NVIDIA to launch these expected mobile GPUs first with the desktop parts following later. Also something to consider is the reporting that NVIDIA has an oversupply issue, with one Taiwan OEM actually sending back 300,000 GPUs. NVIDIA would likely not want to diminish the interest in these unsold parts with a new series launching, but with demand too low to sell them and significant interest in the next series, that might be exactly what it needs to do.
