Since the start of 2018, rumors have been making rounds on the internet suggesting that Nvidia will reveal its new GPU series, probably Nvidia GTX 2080 and GTX 2070, at GTX 2018 and suggested that these graphics cards will be based on Nvidia Ampere architecture.
However, the GPU manufacturer itself has noted that it will not announce its Ampere GPUs at GTC Or GDC 2018, however, a new report has made its way on the internet suggesting that Nvidia GTX 2080 and 2070 will be revealed at GTC 2018.
While these two are contradicting statements but, the company has noted that it won’t announce its Ampere GPUs so there is a chance that GTX 2080 and GTX 2070 might be based on the Pascal architecture, like the GTX 10 series cards, or Volta architecture.
However, take it with a grain of salt since it is just a rumor and the company is yet to confirm anything.
In related news, Nvidia has predicted that GPU prices will increase furthermore in 2018. The company predicted: “that the pricing in the market will continue to go up through Q3 of this year most likely before we start seeing any type of relief”.
All new cell phones coming out by Apple and Samsung (and others) last year started using the same memory as graphics cards. Apple and Samsung are willing to pay more for this memory to make sure they get it first and all of it that they need. This has created a shortage of memory for the much smaller companies like MSI, Gigabyte, Asus, and EVGA to make graphics cards.
However, the next line of Nvidia GPUs could be GTX 1180 and might be based on Volta architecture.
What do you think? Will Nvidia announce its new line of GPUs at GTC 2018? Let us know in the comments.
