And if nVidia comes with its successor to the current cards, naming them RTX 3000 will make things extremely confusing, which is probably an advantage for AMD, because nVidia has too much mind share.
Everyone does this btw... Intel with its B360 over AMD's B350 is another example. This business is quite dirty in terms of naming schemes.
Nah, lets be honest here. Intel was forced to use B360 because AMD intercepted the number. Nvidia has no reason to bother with AMD's naming scheme.
AMD do have reasons to do so since they are heavy underdogs and lack a brand presence of others, but I am not going to try to defend it as industry wide practice since it was pretty much AMD's doing 99% of time.
