After some board partners told us that the TU102 was late or was delivered too late to launch a real hard-launch on 20.09.2018, meanwhile also some pre-orders report reported delays or delays. notifications received from dealers. This fits perfectly into the already known picture, according to which there was speculation in advance about BIOS bugs and other things. Leaked information is usually to be enjoyed with caution, but the picture has certainly condensed.
Some light is now more likely to be an entry in the official GeForce forum, where one of the moderators is now bringing the 27.09.2018 as a new launch date for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti into play. So a postponement of a week. So far, however, Nvidia has not contacted us as to whether this will possibly have an impact on the upcoming launch articles, because apart from the date of 19.09.2018 for both cards, unfortunately no one knows about anything at the moment.
Chaos in Laos and nothing that looks like an orderly timetable or an official, unified line. We will stick to it and will of course report as soon as relevant information reaches us. At the moment, pretty much everything is unclear. Let's take a look and hope for the best. Also for us as testers.
