NVIDIA GTX 11 Series: Everything We Know So Far About GTX 1180 and GTX 1180 Ti
As we all know, NVIDIA has plans of issuing the next successors to its current crop of GPUs, the GTX 10 series. It will allegedly be dropping sometime this year tagged as the GTX 11 series and will arrive as the GTX 1180 and GTX 1180 Ti.
But despite the outpour of leaks and updates, we’re still pretty much in the dark when it comes to the existence of the new GTX 11 series. That’s why to make things a bit clearer, we’ve decided to sift through every available data – only taking into account those that are solidly backed. From release date to specs, we tried our best to keep you covered in all respects. So, just sit back, relax, and start scrolling down!
Initial reports about the NVIDIA GTX 11 series indicated that the new roster of GPUs is coming this April. However, that particular timeline was proved to be wrong when NVIDIA didn’t unveil anything.
In the latest news, DigiTimes says that the cards’ release has been rescheduled once again. This time, the GTX Series will have an outing set in autumn of this year because of the new production schedules. RockPaperShotgun shares that this might be the case seeing as NVIDIA could make use of Gamescom as an avenue for an unveiling, which starts September of this year.
At this point, we can’t really pinpoint the exact launch date as NVIDIA will have the final say. But if estimations are to be believed, then our best bet would be somewhere between autumn or fall.
As with anything new, there’s no reason not to expect the GTX 11 series to come with improvements in performance and speed. According to Wccftech’s sources, the new GTX series will be powered by a GPU called GT104, which will have a total of 3584 CUDA cores, a 256-bit GDDR6 memory interface and between 8-16GB of GDDR6 memory with a speed clocked at 16Gbps.
This alleged specifications, if proven true, will put the new GTX 11 roster miles above the current GTX 10 lineup when it comes to performance. The NVIDIA GTX 11 lineup will gain a memory bandwidth of 512GB/s -a significant increase from the GTX 1080’s 320 GB/s and the GTX 1080 Ti’s 484 GB/s.
In theory, the card will be able to run a standard speed of 1.6GHz and up to 1.8GHz when boosted. Thermal design power-wise, it will tally somewhere between 170-200W. Though it’s believable, it still remains to be seen whether this would really be the final output of the GTX 11 series. We urge our readers to take these new developments with a pinch of salt until NVIDIA confirms it themselves.
Seeing as the GTX 11 series is packed with high-end internals, it’s only natural for the new roster to get a bump up when it comes to pricing. According to sources, the new card lineup will incur a $100 dollar increase from the current $699, pushing it to the $800 mark. This value increase can be attributed to the inclusion of the new GDDR6 memory, which is the latest in-memory technology.
All in all, it’s nice to see that, although still unconfirmed, we’re still getting updates regarding NVIDIA’s new venture. However, as we always say, readers and consumers should take these developments with a grain of salt until NVIDIA steps in and proves them to be true.
