This is half the reason RTX is a joke right now.
If they wanted to sell GPU's they should have had people working with those developers from Day1 of Battlefield V development. If this is supposed to be the revolutionary tech everyone has been waiting for then these should be ground up implementations, not a bunch of hackjob "it'll get patched in later" lame excuses.
At least they could have said "Hey, it's early days, we'll give you a good deal on the silicon" and only raise prices by 30% on each tier, but that's not how Nvidia works, the target market for these products is fanatics who will act like it's a matter of pride to spend the most money as soon as possible.
For those who have such monies, great for them, I'm sure it does give them some satisfaction. For everyone else, Nvidia may as well have announced that they're selling a Lamborghini.
Except developers can't work on RTX until they have a physical RTX gpu with a fully featured driver. Nvidia can't start giving out turing GPUs to developers until bulk production is ready, and once your in bulk production you probably want to launch the product ASAP because you don't want to just be sitting on massive amounts of stock like that. Not to mention that bulk production is typically when all the leaks start hitting the media, and once that happens you really need to release before your product gets it's reputation rekt by ignorant speculation.
