With AMD's new RX Vega GPUs due to hit store shelves imminently, attention has now turned to competitor Nvidia, which has its own next-generation of graphics cards waiting in the wings.
Unfortunately for Nvidia fans, it looks like they might have a little longer to wait for team green's response to AMD's latest cards, and successor to current Pascal cards.
During a recent earnings call, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said, "Volta for gaming, we haven't announced anything… for the holiday season for the foreseeable future, I think Pascal is just unbeatable."
However, when it comes to power draw, Nvidia's cards have a clear lead, drawing significantly less power than their competitors despite offering a similar level of performance.
If you're looking for the all around best card, then this could give Nvidia the edge if you care about power consumption, but we'd stop short of calling Pascal 'unbeatable', at least on a price to performance basis.
The GTX 1080 Ti currently outperforms AMD's entire lineup, but it is also a significantly more expensive card.
PCGamer notes that the real reason for holding back Volta is to do with cost. The new cards are currently available for professional uses such as data centers, but their high cost means that the company is currently unable to produce them cheaply enough to be sold to consumers.
