that does make sense. let's just hope they don't screw up with their bottom tier GPU like they did with the GT 1030. :blarg:
Though to be fair the 1030 was fine for its intended market of those not having IGP or wanting a bit more......until they silently released the ddr4 variants

Yes, I'm a perfect example of that.... IGP wasn't quite beefy enough to run plane9, but wanted/needed something relatively low powered that'd fit in a half-height format off-lease case. (but yes.... quietly releasing the gimped version(s) without changing the model number was a scummy move).

They did that with the MX150 too, and with them releasing the MX230 and 250 people think its the same thing that is going to happen.

I don't mind them harvesting what can't be used in other RTX lines. I guess they have to monetize everything they can given that their GPU sales have sunk a bit.

And Intel is pouring on the pressure now. Nvidia is I think, going to feel it soon.
