After all of the unfortunate news from the past that a new GTX line up isn’t going to arrive soon, Finally, it seems like a new GTX series graphics cards are soon going to hit the markets in the next few months, with reports from unknown sources hinting that the GTX 1180 Founders edition will be soon in July,
The report got confirmed by Tom’s Hardware, and if true, it will be around two years after Nvidia launched the Gtx 1080 Founder Edition, which debuted Nvidia’s 16nm Gpu (Pascal) Architecture.
The first of the Nvidia Turing cards has been a long time to come, and according to Tom’s Hardware, the Founder’s Edition cards will come first, with third-party cards by the likes of MSI and Asus expected to follow in August or September. Apparently, laptop versions of the cards will come later in the year.
According to unnamed sources, Nvidia is going to deliver the GPU and memory to its partners around June 15, expect the launch of the Founder’s Edition around July.
As well as launching the GTX 1180, there’s also likely to be a GTX 1170 Founder’s Edition as well, with the GTX 1180 being the flagship, and the GTX 1170 is a more affordable GPU.
The GTX 1180 will apparently run with 3,584 CUDA cores, compared to the GTX 1080’s 2,560, with 224 TMUs (vs. 160 Texture Mapping Units on the 1080) and is built on a 12nm process (as opposed to 16nm).
It packs twice the video RAM compared to the GTX 1080, with 16GB of faster GDDR6 memory, and the new card has a rated peak FP32 performance of around 13 teraflops.
We can’t wait to see what the next generation of Nvidia GTX graphics cards are capable of, so let’s hope these rumors are true, and we don’t have too much longer to wait.
