I guess it won't be as bad as getting an RTX2080, sending it back for RMA and getting it back just in time to see the release of RTX Supers. lol.
CHVI will be more than adequate for an 8 core.
I guess you may be right regarding the chance of better quality silicon later in production. Demand for the chiplets will also increase though with them going into other yet unreleased products so that may not pan out as it has previously.
