Gamers and PC enthusiasts are waiting for Nvidia to reveal its next-gen GTX 1180 and many were expecting that Nvidia will be revealing it at Computex 2018. However, Nvidia didn’t even talk about its next-gen GPUs and when asked about it, the company revealed that next-gen Nvidia GPUs are a long way off from now.
During the press conference at Computex 2018 in Taipei, Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia focused only on HGX platform for AI and the SoC Xavier and didn’t even touch the subject of next-gen Nvidia GPUs.
However, one reporter didn’t manage to get his attention and asked when the next-gen Nvidia GPUs such as GTX 1180 will be rolling out? To which Huang replied that currently, GPUs are available at their intended MSRP and added that GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti are the best gaming GPUs out there.
He further added that 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.
What Huang is hinting at is that Nvidia will not be rolling out its next-gen GPUs this which was hinted at with 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, this statement might indicate that next-gen GPUs from Nvidia will not be released in their usual release window which is July as 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.
What do you make of Nvidia’s statement about its upcoming GT 1180? Let us know in the comments.
