NVIDIA GTX 11 (GTX 20) Coming With GDDR6 Memory, To Arrive Sometime This July
Just last week, we were filled in on the successor to NVIDIA’s much-applauded GTX 10 series of graphics cards, which now takes on the name of GTX 11. Now, it seems like the talk of the town isn’t going anywhere but the limelight anytime soon as rumors point to a second-quarter outing this year.
Though NVIDIA has kept mum on topics regarding the NVIDIA GTX 11 (GTX 20), recent rumors indicate that the upcoming graphics card lineup might see a release sometime this July. According to a report by Gamersnexus, Sk Hynix is gearing up for the mass production of its GDDR6 memory late this June or early July, which is a component that, as speculations dictate, will be present in all upcoming NVIDIA products including the GTX 11. What this particular schedule indicates is that the GTX 11 series will likely see a launch sometime in July, albeit still unknown. This timeline also coincides with previously estimated launch dates, which all the more corroborate the GTX 11’s arrival.
In terms of performance, this new GDDR6 memory will improve on its predecessor’s, the GDDR5, speed, and efficiency though at a higher cost. Aside from this, SK Hynix has also confirmed that the GDDR6 will come in two variants, one with a 1GB density and the other 2GB. With this in mind, we can expect the new roster to come with 8GB and 16GB capacities on 256-bit GPUs.
Taking SK Hynix involvement into account, it’s not impossible for customers of these capacities to exist. Wccftech believes that it’s highly plausible for NVIDIA to offer GTX 11 (GTX 20) cards in both 8GB and 16GB capacities since there’s a strong market demand.
Although these developments might sound exciting at first glance, NVIDIA has yet to issue confirmations on their upcoming GPUs, which means that consumers should take these speculations with a grain of salt until proven true.
