Pascal was the first 16nm GPU.
So I'm not sure what "old business trick" you are talking about.
Currently they are in a unique position where they are both making GPUs from TSMC, but also nvidia don't need to rush to 7nm as well. When they released tuning, 7nm was still only starting.
But what am I saying. This is OCN.

That statement just sound like kids fighting and NV is like "i can lick my own elbow".
The 2080 and radeon VII have similar performance, and similar price.
The 2080 is a 225W TDP card, the radeon VII, using lower powered memory even, is a 295W TDP card. And yes, that is on a 7nm card.
At 275W, nvidia gain another 30% with the 2080 TI (even if its priced higher).
So yes, they have much more efficient GPUs. And that has been true for almost a decade now.
It is a fact, despite the hateful comments about it. No matter how much you hate it, you can't change that fact.
Whether they can keep it up, maybe not. But right now, they are.
If they gain the same performance as AMD going to 7nm, roughly 30%, on the same TDP, they will gain an even bigger lead if they use similar architecture, unless navi is huge architecture change.
