At any rate, Nvidia is clearly in a great position to drop an entire GTX-based 2000-series cards at significantly lower pricing than the RTX models, which is probably why AMD scrambled to get Vega 2 out so quickly. Nvidia still has the GPU market in a headlock and is by far and away the dominant performer at basically every performance level (as they have been for years now). The reason is obvious but I do have optimism for the future now that Zen has come onto the scene and rescued AMD's bottom line.
I think Navi is going to end up being very close to the leaked info Jim released in December, just a bit late. Hopefully we get a June or so launch of Navi's that rival the 2070 for under $300 and the 2080 for under $500 right before they curb-stomp Intel with Zen 2 at Computex! But we'll see...
I highly doubt they will combine any 20 series card with the GTX prefix. How many average consumers will buy the cheaper GTX 2080 thinking its an RTX 2080?
It would certainly bring up their GPP nonsense again.... because Nvidia clearly believe that gamers should know what they are buying and can make a clear choice.

You have a habit, and clearly other users have also noticed, of posting anti-AMD 'content' regardless of the context or discussion. Even in topics completely void of anything hardware (Intel, AMD, Nvidia) related, you still post comments about Ryzen and AMD's GPUs.
Everyone is of course entitled to an opinion, but its another matter entirely to be pushing your own agenda at every possible opportunity.
