Nvidia GTX 1180 Expected in July: What You Need to Know

Nvidia's 10-series of "Pascal" GPUs is getting really long in the tooth, with the original GTX 1070 and 1080 cards having released a full two years ago. We've been through a number of Intel and AMD CPU generations since then, so it's long past time for a new GeForce platform. Unfortunately, Nvidia has been extremely tight-lipped about its next-generation graphics "Turing" chips.

On the bright side, according to industry sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, the new cards should be arriving as soon as July. Here's what we know right now.

What will the new chips be called: GTX 1180 or GTX 2080?
The chips will be based on the Turing platform, but Nvidia hasn't announced a brand name. We've seen conflicting rumors that state that the new cards will be called either the 11-series or the 20-series. In other words, the high-end card will be called either the GTX 1180 or GTX 2080. Considering that we're moving on from the 10 series, the GTX 1180 makes more sense, unless Nvidia is trying to say that its new card is 10-generations ahead of the current ones.

Nvidia GTX 1180 (Turing) Expected Release Date: July 2018

Thanks, the Partner cards won't be out until the fall, just the founders card will be out in July, at least there's something new to get excited about!

From other articles I have read...the "1180" will only be about 15% faster than the 1080 TI. Not sure worth upgrading until either the next gen or to an 1180 TI.

If the past is anything to go by then nothing exciting will happen until theres some decent competition, then you will see Nvidia pull an Ace out if its proverbial.

The problem is that they wont compete with their own products, so dev stagnates. We've seen this play out with Nvidia several times in the past. I imagine the engineers holed up in a back room somewhere, coming in each day and spending their time hunched over their oscilloscopes tweaking bits and pieces, just waiting for the execs to give them the green light to actually burn some silicon. Must be very boring for those dudes.

Still too early to find out. But I wouldn't be surprised. Little boost in performance and a big boost in price.
