Gamers are waiting for the next-gen Nvidia GPU, GTX 1180, but the company has its lips sealed when it comes to its reveal. However, a report has made its way on the internet suggesting that Nvidia will roll out its next-gen Nvidia GTX 1180 in August 2018.
The report comes from Tweaktown, who spoke with various Nvidia AIB partners at Computex 2018 and asked them about the next-gen Nvidia GPUs. According to the site, the AIB partners have noted that the next-gen Nvidia GTX 1180 will roll out either in August 2018 or September 2018.
Not only that, the report suggests that the next-gen Nvidia GTX 1180 will be expensive compared to GTX 1080Ti. Furthermore, the report suggests that the next-gen Nvidia GPU might not be called GTX 1180 and will use different numbers.
The reason why would GTX 1180 be expensive is because if its cheaper compared to GTX 1080 Ti then no one would but the 1080 Ti given that it will be faster and will feature a new architecture.
However, this falls in line with Nvidia’s statement that its next-gen GPUs are a long way off from now.
According to Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia, when it is time to reveal he himself will invite everyone but for now, GTX 1180 or next-gen Nvidia GPUs are a long while off from now.
However, Nvidia might be hinting that its next-gen GPU will not release in 2018 and one indication of this is the release of the GTX 1060 based on GP104 GPU.
The GP104 is the same one used in the GTX 1080, 1070 Ti as well as the 1070. Other than that, the specs are identical to the previous variant of GTX 1060. Also, this version of GTX 1060 is exclusive to China.
However, Stuart Oberman will be talking at Hot Chips 30 about the Next Generation Mainstream GPUs from Nvidia. 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.
