Nvidia GTX 1180 Founders Edition looks set to rock PCs in July

Nvidia hasn't been in a rush to supplant Pascal in the consumer sector, and it's easy to understand why-AMD's competing Vega architecture only brought parity to Pascal two years after it was released, and on top of that Vega cards are still in short supply.

Another day, another GTX 1180 report.

Pascal ushered in laptop GPUs that were nearly as capable as their desktop counterparts, so the Turing architecture should build upon that, as well as help make gaming at 4K resolutions and at 60 frames per second or above a more realistic goal for people not willing to throw thousands at the highest-end desktop PCs.

The first of the Nvidia Turing cards has been a long time coming, and according to Tom's Hardware, the Founder's Edition cards will come first, with third-party cards by the likes of MSI and Asus expected to follow in August or September. The laptop versions of the cards will come out at the end of the year.

While it is just a rumor but this falls in line with SK Hynix's plans to mass produce GDDR6 in June and this particular memory will be featured in the next-gen Nvidia GPUs which presumably will either be GTX 1180 or GTX 2080.

Will the New Cards be Called GTX 1180 or GTX 2080?

This might indicate that Nvidia will be focusing on GTX 10 series GPUs in 2018 and will wait till 2019 to reveal its next line of GPUs with a new architecture.

The GTX 1180 will apparently run with 3,584 CUDA cores, compared to the GTX 1080's 2,560, with 224 TMUs (versus 160 Texture Mapping Units on the 1080) and is built on a 12nm process (as opposed to 16nm).
