Does Nvidia need an RTX 2070/80 mid-point?

Rumour has it that Nvidia is working on a new graphics card called the RTX 2070 Ti, a new graphics card that will act as a midway point between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080. 

Recently, specifications for this new graphics card leaked onto the web, stating that the GPU would ship with 2560 CUDA cores, 14Gbps GDDR6 memory and a boost clock speed of 1770MHz. This places the RTX 2070 Ti between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, which feature 2304 and 2944 Stream Processors and Founders Edition boost clock speeds of 1710MHz and 1800MHz respectively. 

So why does Nvidia need an RTX 2070 Ti? The short answer is Navi. At Computex 2019, AMD showcased an early Navi demo which shows their new graphics hardware offering a 10% performance advantage over the RTX 2070. This gives Nvidia the opportunity to release their RTX 2070 Ti as a new Navi competitor, offering consumers a graphics card which will be able to better compete with AMD's future offering, assuming that AMD's demo was representative of a wider selection of games. 

Nvidia's RTX 2070 Ti is rumoured to be a TU-104 based product, making it a cut-down version of the company's RTX 2080 graphics card. Nvidia's RTX 2070 silicon has no inactive CUDA cores, at least as far as we are aware, making TU-104 the only hardware option for the RTX 2070 Ti, aside from entirely new silicon, which would be too costly to be worth considering. 

If these leaked specifications are correct, Nvidia's RTX 2070 Ti would pack a performance improvement of around 12% over the company's existing RTX 2070 graphics card and a 15% performance disadvantage when compared to the RTX 2080.

or bring your prices down a bit so you have a better product stack within Navi's price range... surely???
They cannot compete with Navi on price, not now not ever. At launch perhaps but once all the hype has blown over AMD will be clawing back tonnes of R&D on Navi from console market by itself, let alone reducing production costs and anything else that has gone into it. Navi's price can go as low as AMD want
Why bring out a new product that is not only competing with your own products but has a mountain of additional costs and will be seen as a desperate attempt to meet a price demand, Just seems the risk vs potential sales or market growth does not add up here
Anytime Nvidia try to compete price wise AMD will be able to react without even thinking about the financial impact, let alone worrying about it. Navi might not be the fastest GPU on the market but it is a gold mine for AMD on top of Zen. If the sales go the way it looks then we may see a turn around in the next few years, depending on Intel's GPU offerings.Quote

Hasn't it been pretty much the exact opposite? Nvidia has beaten AMD to the market for quite a while, and when AMD's competing product enters the market, Nvidia has slashed prices.
But they never seem to beat AMD in price, either match or sell at slightly higher - if I were to guess that's due to their strong brand, it will sell anyway.Quote

Yeah NVidia has a long history of artificial product releases that are cut down primarily to suit marketing/product stack needs than technical needs, RTX2060 is an excellent example of this, it's barely cut down at all from the RTX2070 and the key ways it is cut down don't really impact yields/cost but have a big impact on performance, it's an artificially capped GPU to fit into a price point neatly. In reality the BOM cost difference between the RTX2060 and 2070 is likely fractional, one is just a lower margin high volume product and the other is a high margin low volume product.

In contrast, AMD usually releases products that are primarily only binned/cut down in ways that improve yields/reduce costs, IE are logical from a technical perspective. This gives them less ability to counter NVidia with product stack changes, but a lot more room to counter them with price cuts, which is why AMD are rarely beaten on price, they will have much lower overheads on their individual SKUs.

This is far more obvious in the CPU market though, given Intel more or less invented that strategy of fusing off random bits of the silicon just to differentiate a chips marketability rather than to actually improve yields. AMD still do it too (Removing SMT is the easiest to spot example of this, no actual yield/cost difference, it's purely for marketing reasons) but much less often.

It's kinda like with cars, where electric windows or many other features were far cheaper to manufacture than their manual alternatives for many years, but still came at a price premium for marketing/product stack reasons.Quote
