Nvidia Pascal Consumer card announced during Computex

But they will launch later ... Nvidia is to announce its consumer grade Pascal graphics cards at Computex 2016 from May 31-June 4, graphics card manufacturers include Asus, Gigabyte and MSI. They would be showing reference nbased products, according to sources from graphics card players.

Digitimes reports that mass shipments of Pascal based graphics cards would be in the summer, roughly July and they expect the next-generation graphics card to increase their shipments and profits in the third quarter, sources noted.

Nvidia initially plans to reveal GPUs including GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 at Computex 2016 and has already begun to clear inventory of its existing GPUs to prepare for the next-generation products.

The sources pointed out that the graphics card market continues to see weak demand in the first half and most players' shipments in the second quarter are expected to drop around 10% from the first.

AMD has prepared Polaris-based GPUs to compete against Nvidia's Pascal; however, the GPUs could be released later than Nvidia's Pascal and therefore the graphics card players' third-quarter performance will mainly be driven by demand for their Nvidia products.

In 2015, worldwide graphics card shipments dropped below 30 million units because of shrinking demand and rapid exchange rate fluctuations, which caused demand from Russia and Latin America to drop sharply. However, with increasing demand from the gaming and virtual reality market, the sources expects high-end graphics card to see strong performance, helping worldwide graphics card shipments to stay flat on year in 2016.
