Good time to buy a gpu?

I was thinking of getting a radeon 5700xt, but should I instead wait until Nvidia drops their 7nm gpus in mid-2020?

It looks like 2020 will be quite competitive in the GPU market, as amd for once in many years is beating Nvidia in the mid-high end market when it comes to price/performance. And Intel is launching their own GPU. So I'm expecting either big price drops or big performance increases.

    TC or GTFO. Honestly a GPU is only several hundred bucks.

      I guess I'm Too cheap with my money.

      Though, high-end gpus are 1k (2080 ti), fair bit of money if it's going to be obsolete in a year

      And BTW, Ray Tracing in Control is just awesome.
