The GeForce 11 series cards have been revealed by DigiTimes and WCCFTech. This report indicates the same pattern for the launch of GeForce graphics cards that we are hearing from quite some time now, and GeForce GTX 1180 will unveil next month.
GTX 1180 and 11 Series Card Will Start Rolling Out from August
According to the report the company is planning to roll out their flagship GeForce GTX 1180 graphics card by end of August. This report also mentions that GeForce GTX 1170 would be launched just a month after the launch of GTX 1180.
Nvidia reportedly is set to roll out its GeForce GTX 1180 series graphics cards at the end of August, followed by the launch of its GeForce GTX 1170 series at the end of September and GeForce GTX 1160 series a month later, according to industry sources. via Digitimes
This seems to be following the same pattern which we heard last week from a different source who mentioned similar launch timeframes for the next-generation GeForce 11 series graphics card. Do note that the naming convention has still not been confirmed but most leaks/rumors have been pointing out to GeForce 11 series rather than GeForce 20 series. Following were the launch dates mentioned in the previous rumor:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 (30th August Release Date)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180+ (30th September Release Date)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1170 (30th September Release Date)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1160 (30th October Release Date)
There is yet another thing mentioned by DigiTimes that GeForce 11 series will see whooping price fluctuations during initial launch and mass production, after checking the inventory of 10 series.
Due to this reason, we may be looking at the prices of the previous generation not being cut as much as GeForce 900 to GeForce 10 series cards. It could be difficult to differentiate between cards based on their prices leading to gamers. Most of the gamers will be looking to buy 11 series card when the prices came down. NVIDIA will keep refreshing their stock on a webpage but in limited quantity.
The GeForce 11 series graphics card will be based on TSMC 12nm process node. The same process node used on NVIDIA’s VOLTA GPU. The source also added the release of 7nm TSMC part by NVIDIA in late 2018.
Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1180 is manufactured via Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TSMC) 12nm process and the GPU giant reportedly will release a GPU made using TSMC’s 7nm process at the end of 2018. via Digitimes
It is also worth mentioning that VideoCardz stated that NVIDIA will be using VirutalLink USB Type C connector for connecting 11 series graphics card to Virtual Reality Headsets.
