NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 Latest Update On Price And Release Date
NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics card known as GTX 1180 is reported to come this year. Aside from that, there is a chance that it might carry a different name and it will be a bit pricey.
The Release Date
According to Tweak Town, Anthony Garreffa, its writer, spoke with many AIB partners at the Computex 2018 event regarding the next generation GeForce graphics card (GTX 1180) along with other details as well. He notes that everyone told him that there will be an August/September release window “corroborating my world exclusive” during Computex that NVIDIA would announce the GTX 1180 on July 30.
This makes it quite interesting because it falls in line with the report published by Tom’s Hardware last May. According to that article, “industry workers” who wished to remain anonymous spoke with Tom’s Hardware Germany’s Igor Wallossek claimed that they’re expecting a July release for the Founder’s Edition cards and then on August or September, third-party cards will follow.
A Different Name?
There is a chance that it won’t be named as NVIDIA GTX 1180 and instead will use different numbers instead – probably GTX 1185 or GTX 1190. Comparing it to the previous reports, there were some who pointed out it isn’t even sure if NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics card will be named GTX 1180, given that the company has yet to announce its brand name. Some even speculated that it will probably be named as GTX 2080.
Regarding its specs, it will be more powerful and expensive compared to the GTX 1080 Ti, while cheaper compared to the Titan Xp. The GTX 1080 Ti debuted at $799 which was followed by the Titan Xp with a price tag of $1199.
As for the next generation graphics card, it will have two variants. The first variant is 8 GB GDDR6 which will cost $999, while the other variant is 16 GB GDDR7 at $1499.
The 16 GB variant can be overclocked because it’s clocked up from 14Gbps to 16-18Gbps. In addition to that, it will be a single card capable of handling 4K 120/144Hz in today’s games.
