The Nvidia GTX 1180 is going to be the top of the line model, at least until the Ti variant comes out and Galax talked about the performance that the Nvidia GTX 1180 will have to offer. The company also confirmed that it is working on custom versions of the graphics card and that there will be a Hall of Fame edition as well.
While we have been getting reports that there will be an official announcement for the Nvidia GTX 1180 by the end of the month. Galax claims that the graphics card will be coming out in September. There is a bit of confusion regarding the naming scheme and release so take this information with a grain of salt and wait for the official word from Nvidia before taking things to heart. The following is what Galax had to say in this regard:
The release time of the next-generation NVIDIA graphics card will not be far away. Players will be able to see the information about the new graphics card in September. The performance will certainly have a breakthrough growth, and will support the most advanced NVIDIA ray tracing technology. Game player is a good news!
This is an official Nvidia partner so the information provided does seem to be valid. Galax further mentioned the Nvidia GTX 1180 Hall of Fame edition and the following is what the company had to say in this regard:
Of course, GALAXY’s non-public version of the design is also in the process of planning, the next generation of new graphics will still follow the Hall of Fame, GAMER, the many advantages of the series, and innovate in the shape and heat, giving players a better game Experience and visual enjoyment, in order to enrich the needs of players, we plan to create a new series in the graphics card, specifically what shape and positioning, first give everyone a suspense, but I can guarantee that will not disappoint everyone!
This is a very rough translation and the sentences might not make complete sense but you do get the gist of the matter. It will be interesting to see what kind of performance the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1180 will have to offer as compared to the GTX 1080 and the AMD Vega 64.
We have heard that the Nvidia GTX 1180 is going to be rebranded to RTX 1180 instead and that could mean that the card will support Nvidia ray tracing. If that is indeed true then this means that the 1160 and 1150 will not support Nvidia RTX. For more information regarding the matter stay tuned to SegmentNext.
