The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 is going to be the flagship model in the upcoming 11 series until the Ti model comes out and here we have images of the leaked PCB that gives us some information regarding what you can expect from the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180. While some sites are still calling the card the 2080, we are going to stick with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180, as it makes more sense.
The images suggest that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 will either have 8 GB of VRAM or 16 GB. Whatever the case may be, we know for sure that the next generation Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 will use GDDR6 memory. This will increase performance drastically as compared to the Pascal graphics cards. Seeing how this leak has made its way to the internet now, it is more than likely that we will get a release later this month, as suggested by the leaked partner Email that we saw recently.
Furthermore, we can see from the branding that this Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 PCB is not custom and is a reference design. The graphics card will have 8+6 pin power connectors. This might mean that the second 6-pin connector is optional if you want to overclock, if not then it might indicate that more power is needed to run the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 as compared to the GTX 1080 that only had a single 8-pin connector.
You will also note the new SLI connectors, while we are not sure, it is possible that Nvidia will be introducing NVLink for gaming. That is something that you should take with a grain of salt as it has not been confirmed by Nvidia but we will be looking into the matter so stay tuned for further updates and more information regarding the matter.
The pinout for the GPU is small, it might be for the GV104 processor. The certification logo tells us that this is a final Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 PCB and I would not be surprised if this is what we got when the graphics cards came to market.
We will have to wait and see whether or not the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 is released this month. We might not even get an announcement. We will have to wait and see what happens. Nvidia has a surprise for Gamescom 2018 and it will be interesting to see what the company has in store for us.
It will be interesting to see what kind of performance the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 will have to offer as compared to the Pascal series of graphics cards as well as the competition.
Let us know what you think about the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 and whether or not this is something that you are interested in getting.
