They don't have plans for 10nm with their main GPUs - even the original 10nm rumor stated it was both companies. Nvidia has been telling both investors and media ,TSMC and 7nm. Stop using rumors when the company is saying the opposite. Stop using rumors at all - this is why I hate rumors. People forget what's rumor and what's real like two months after the rumor is posted. Also AMD isn't using 7nm EUV for RDNA2. The rest of this post - idk.. the 15% improved IPC is just a guess on your part - maybe it's true but then you're just ignoring any potential gains Nvidia has with Ampere. I'm not even sure you're right about RDNA1 being equal (I know you're wrong for FP16/INT8/INT4). Everyone knew what the Xbox Series X performance was going to be - Microsoft stated for over two years now they wanted double the Xbox One X aka 12tflops. RDNA1 has been on the market for a year. There was multiple posts on Guru3D putting two and two together and speculating the performance. You're telling me Nvidia's engineers - with decades of experience, with the spec/engineering samples/etc on 7nm from TSMC, and a guess that AMD would improve anything over RDNA1, they couldn't do what you just did? They needed the console to see it? And now you're telling me they are delaying their launch a few months - to do what exactly? The rumor was Nvidia was going to announce their cards at GDC - launch sometime after. So at best, if this rumor is even true, they delayed their cards by a couple months. It's not enough time to do anything, even if somehow RDNA2 surprised them. (I highly doubt it did, it didn't surprise me, it didn't surprise you, I doubt it surprised Nvidia). The economy across the world is garbage right now. I'm not spending any money, no one I know is spending any money - most people I know don't even have jobs. The pandemic is 100% why they delayed the cards, if they even did delay them.
