AMD and NVIDIA are to launch their next-generation GPUs in September, according to a new report. Big Navi and Ampere announcements could be planned for this summer too, while price cuts are apparently incoming for current-generation cards.
Alex Alderson,

There have been multiple rumours about NVIDIA launching Ampere GPUs in September, and now it has emerged that AMD may be planning to do so the same with its next-generation GPUs. While AMD has already confirmed that it plans to bring its "Big Navi" GPUs to market later this year, the company is yet to confirm when.

DigiTimes seems to have an inside track though, as it claims that "AMD and Nvidia [are] set to launch their next-generation GPUs in September". DigiTimes may not always be the most accurate of sources, but the prospect of AMD and NVIDIA both launching their next-generation GPUs in the same month will surely whet the appetites of PC gamers.

As Videocardz notes, the wording of DigiTimes' statement suggests that next-generation AMD and NVIDIA GPUs could be orderable from September. Hence, we would not rule out both companies unveiling Big Navi and Ampere GPUs before September.

Additionally, the release of next-generation cards will coincide with price cuts for current-generation models. So, it may be worthwhile holding off from purchasing a new graphics card until the fall, then.
