Nvidia did say we should "Get amped for latest platform breakthroughs in AI, deep learning, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and professional graphics" — a not so subtle hint of Ampere if ever we saw one.
This sounds more like Quadro, Jetson Xavior, and/or datacenter editions of something new. Nowhere in there do they say 'gaming' - it's a completely different division for nVidia. They even go so far as separating 'Gaming' to its own line on their financial reports.

Correct. No one is expecting the announcement of any new gaming cards or technologies at this event, but the next line of GTX hardware will largely be based on this architecture. Don't expect the 3000 series to be announced until fall at the earliest.

Its more for the general release of Ampere - which will under pin the Tesla, Quadro and GeForce line... We know there is one supercomputer that was delayed to get the next gen. Not a complete different division, but a different segment - same engineers, same tech.

"The biggest thing we're looking forward to is the transition to 7nm, when Nvidia will finally transition away from 12nm and catch up with AMD. "

I couldn't care less about the node. Performance is what matters. AMD is still chasing the 1080ti in terms of gaming performance.

Recall that Turing was first announced as a trio of Quadro cards, aimed primarily at high-end graphics workloads, at SIGGRAPH 2018 (IIRC).

So, just because they're highlighting those other applications (which is in keeping with the general focus of GTC), doesn't mean it won't be the first we see of their next gaming GPUs.

Actually, no. Their HPC products do not intersect with their consumer product lines.

Granted, the V100 was eventually sold as the TitanV, but the $3k price tag basically disqualifies it from consideration as a consumer product.
