Nvidia Turing Latest Update, Release Date, Leaks: Everything We Know So Far!
Nvidia’s upcoming family of GPUs is currently rumored with three codenames which are Ampere, Volta, and Turing. Out of them, the Turing is said to be the next line of consumer-grade graphics cards, which will replace the current 10-series Pascal card.
Nvidia’s upcoming 11th generation of graphics cards are expected to be more efficient and probably boost PC gaming into the territory of true 4K, 60-frames-per-second gaming with a single GPU. In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about Nvidia’s upcoming Turing graphics cards.
Nvidia Turing Specs
Considering the fact that Nvidia has already introduced its new 12-nanometer manufacturing process with Nvidia Volta, it is expected that it will trickle down to the company’s upcoming consumer-facing Turing GPU line. Apart from that, there is nothing confirmed about the Nvidia’s next line of graphics cards.
However, some reports claim that the successor to the Nvidia GTX 1080 will be renamed as GTX 1180, while the other reports say that it will be named as GTX 2080. There is also a question of whether Nvidia’s Turing will boast GDDR6 video memory or HBM2, which is there on the Nvidia Titan V.
Nvidia Turing Release date and Price
According to the Tom’s Hardware report that has cited ‘multiple independent sources’ in the industry, claims that we won’t see the release of Nvidia Turing until July or later in 2018. However, rumor mill claims that the mass production of new GeForce cards won’t begin until mid-June, so the rumored earlier launch seems to be improbable.
If this report is anything to go by then the true Nvidia might announce Turning during the Gamescom in August this year. That being said, there are no more supporting reports that back up the Tom’s Hardware’s information.
On the other hand, as reported earlier citing the TweakTown and Reuters report Nvidia Turing might get unveiled at the Game Developer’s Conference or the Nvidia’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2018. After that, the rumored cards were said to hit the market as early as April or May. However, this timing does make sense given the fact that Nvidia originally launched the current line of Pascal cards in May 2016.
Looking at the present state of GPU prices in a cryptocurrency-crazy world, it is expected that the upcoming graphics cards will come with the higher price tags in the future. Particularly given that the Nvidia Pascal graphics cards came at a slightly higher price over the last-generation Maxwell graphics cards they replaced.
