“Mainstream” Next-Gen Nvidia GPUs Teased For Hot Chips 30

Gamers and PC enthusiasts are waiting for next-gen Nvidia GPUs and Nvidia, on the other hand, has been very silent about it. However, it seems like we will soon be hearing about next-gen Nvidia GPUs as Nvidia has already teased them.

Stuart Oberman will be talking at Hot Chips 30 about the Next Generation Mainstream GPUs from Nvidia. While Nvidia might finally be revealing its next-gen GPUs but we still don’t know what architecture Nvidia GPUs will be using, will it be Turing or Ampere? We currently are in the dark.

The presentation will take place on August 20th, 2018, which might indicate that Nvidia will be rolling out its next-gen GPUs, presumably GTX 1180 or GTX 2080, by then.

This falls in line with rumors that Next-Gen Nvidia GPUs, GTX 1180 or GTX 2080, are coming in July. According to the report, industry sources have revealed that next-gen Nvidia GPUs will be available in July 2018.

Speaking on Nvidia, the company has announced a 3 GB variant of GTX 1050with upgraded specs compared to the 2 GB variant.

The 2 GB variant of the 1050 features 640 Cuda Cores, 7 Gbps memory speed and a boost clock of 1455 MHz. The 3 GB variant ups these specs with 768 Cuda Cores and 1455 MHz boost clock.

Furthermore, EA DICE has partnered with Nvidia for Battlefield V. This is the first time DICE has partnered with Nvidia for any Battlefield title.

According to Andreas Morell, Sr. Producer at DICE, the team wanted to partner with someone who is just as enthusiastic about PC games as they are and hence they partnered with Nvidia for the upcoming Battlefield due to their “advanced gaming technologies and robust GeForce PC gaming platform”.

What do you expect from Nvidia’s presentation? Do you think Nvidia will be rolling out its next-gen GPUs this year? Let us know in the comments.
