According to a report on Tom’s Hardware, the first Nvidia GTX 11 series graphics cards is scheduled to launch this summer.
Based on industry sources who wished to remain anonymous, the report claimed the Founder’s Edition cards are expected to release in July, with third-party cards to follow in August or September. Laptop versions of the cards will come later in the year.
The next-generation graphics cards will be based on the “Turing” platform, although Nvidia hasn’t announced a brand name yet. There are also conflicting rumours as to whether the new cards will be called the 11-series or the 20-series.
No information has been forthcoming from Nvidia, but according to the report, the GTX 1180 will feature 3,584 CUDA cores, a clock speed of 1.6 to 1.8GHz and 8 to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The GTX 1170 is rumoured to come with 2,688 CUDA cores, running at 1.5 to 1.8GHz, and have 8 to 16GB of GDDR6 memory.
