It looks as though more Turing GPU rumors are starting to filter out into the wild, and the latest revolves around the release schedule for NVIDIA's next generation GPU family. As with all GeForce GTX 11 Series rumors that we've heard over the past few months, we'll have to take this latest report with a big spoon of salt given that NVIDIA itself has been tight-lipped about the products. The new report revolves around an email that was allegedly shared between an NVIDIA board partner and a retailer that will be selling the GeForce GTX 11 Series to customers. According to the email, the tentative launch schedule goes as follows: GeForce GTX 1180 on August 30th GeForce GTX 1170/1180+... Read more...
One of the worst kept secrets in tech right now is that NVIDIA is preparing to launch its next-generation Turing GPU lineup for gamers. The company is scheduled to talk about those GPUs at the Hot Chips conference next month, and it's conceivable that Turing might launch before then. Until then, we are left to sift through the rumors and leaks, even the sketchy ones, such as a supposed screenshot of a next-gen GeForce GTX 1170 putting the beat down on a current-gen GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in 3DMark. We recommend taking this with a giant pile of salt, and then some, because there are several signs that it's spoofed. We'll get to that in a minute. For now, let's talk about the leaked benchmark.

Things are looking up for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) after the company posted a decline in revenue for its quarter ending in June. TSMC is now predicting significant increases in revenue moving through the third and fourth quarters of 2018. The gain in revenue is, according to industry sources, thanks to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 11 Series GPU and Apple's A12 SoC. Apple is rolling out three new iPhones in September, according to rumors, that will all use the A12 SoC that TSMC builds on its 7nm process technology. NVIDIA is also tapping TSMC for its GeForce GTX 11 GPU tech to leverage TSMC's 7nm process. The 7nm process technology that TSMC has is in such high demand that... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 11 Series is coming later this year, as was previously confirmed on-camera by a Lenovo representative. The indicated that the GeForce GTX 1180 would ship with the Lenovo Legion 730 Series gaming desktops this Fall. Now we're learning that NVIDIA is stockpiling roughly one million next-generation GTX 11 GPUs so that there will be an adequate supply of graphics cards to go around for a Q3 or Q4 2018 launch. It has been two years since the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 10 Series landed, so there is pent-up demand for this family's successor to fuel the 4K gaming craze. Alleged NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 prototype Back in early June, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang suggested... Read more...
Gamers have been anxiously awaiting a replacement for the long-running GeForce GTX 10 (Pascal) Series of graphics cards, which have been around for two years now. We've been hearing a number of rumors surrounding the upcoming replacement, and there have been conflicting reports on whether the Turing-based cards will feature GTX 11 or GTX 20 branding. Now, thanks to a slipup by a Lenovo rep, we finally know the real answer. In an on-camera interview with gaming publication Brainbean, a Lenovo representative was talking about the company's Legion 730 Series line of desktop gaming PCs and casually mentioned, "Along with up to a GTX 1060, at this time. But time to market with NVIDIA... Read more...
A few days after NVIDIA posted a birthday message to Alan Turing on Twitter (and perhaps teasing that what its next generation GeForce GPUs will be called), a picture of purported prototype GeForce card appeared on the web (shown above). If the picture is legitimate, then it is the first look at an upcoming GeForce GTX Turing card with what is presumed to be GDDR6 memory and a few other bits. The card appeared on Reddit and drew a bit of buzz on the Internet before the post was ultimately deleted. This being the Internet and all, once the cat is out of the bag, there is no putting it back in. The picture shows a clearly unfinished product with a placeholder for the GPU, four small fans plopped... Read more...
Micron is now mass producing next generation 8-gigabit (Gb) GDDR6 memory chips that will be used in a broad range of applications, the company announced today. The significance of this is that it means Micron is right on schedule with its next-gen graphics memory rollout—Micron in December of last year stated that its initial progress was "very promising" and that it was aiming to ramp up production in the first half of 2018. These new chips are Micron's fastest and most powerful graphics memory to date. Micron envision GDDR6 being used in high performance applications such as artificial intelligence (AI), networking, automotive, and of course paired with graphics processing units (GPUs)....

Almost everything we know about NVIDIA's next generation GeForce GPUs is based in rumors and speculation. That will change sometime this summer, and by August at the latest, as NVIDIA is scheduled to talk about its next-gen GPUs at the Hot Chips conference. In the meantime, the latest chatter is that NVIDIA's upcoming Turing GPUs will support real-time ray tracing at the hardware level, which could elevate gaming in a big way. For anyone who is not familiar with ray tracing, it's a method for rendering graphics by which images are created by tracing rays or paths of light as they bounce in and around an object (or objects) in a scene. It's sort of the Holy Grail of graphics in gaming (and other... Read more...
The million dollar question on every gamer's mind is when the heck will NVIDIA finally launch its next-generation GPU, presumably called Turing. There have been plenty of rumors and speculation, most of which point to this summer. However, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang may have thrown cold water on the chatter when he said at Computex that the next generation of GeForce will not arrive for a long while. If you listen closely, you can hear the collective groan of gamers who are anxious to see NVIDIA finally put its Pascal architecture in the rear view mirror as it hits the ground running with a new architecture. The good news in that regard is that Jensen's answer is not exactly clear, and could mean... Read more...
NVIDIA has been rather tight-lipped when it comes to revealing details about its next-generation graphic cards. The current generation GeForce GTX 10 Series, which is based on Pascal architecture, is two years old at this point and ready for a replacement.  Although rumors surrounding the official launch of the [alleged] GeForce GTX 11 Series have been all over the place, we're finally getting a better idea of the timing thanks to a schedule breakdown for the upcoming Hot Chips symposium, which will be held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California. On August 20th, NVIDIA's Stuart Oberman is scheduled to give an address on "NVIDIA's Next Generation... Read more...
It seems as though every few weeks we hear additional rumors about NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce GTX graphics card family. The latest report suggests that the first of these new gaming cards, the GeForce GTX 1180, will arrive in July.  This information comes courtesy of Tom's Hardware, which claims to have confirmed the launch date with industry sources that are privy to NVIDIA's plans. The July launch is strictly relegated to NVIDIA’s own GeForce GTX 1180 Founders Edition cards. Custom versions of the GeForce GTX 1180 will come from NVIDIA's third-party partners sometime in August, or September at the latest. If all goes according to plan, mobile version of the new GeForce... Read more...
NVIDIA's next-generation graphics architecture for the consumer market is highly anticipated. After all, the current-generation Pascal architecture was launched two year ago, although we've seen some meaningful updates at the high-end over that time period.  Given all the pent-up hype surrounding 12nm Turing GPU architecture, it's understandable that the rumormill is working overtime to try to piece together what NVIDIA has in store. The latest rumors suggest that at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1180 will be a GT104 GPU measuring around 400mm2 with 3584 CUDA cores. For comparison, the GeForce GTX 1080 has 2560 CUDA cores while the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584 CUDA cores. At... Read more...
Two years after the launch of Pascal, the gaming community is eager to see what NVIDIA has in store for its next generation of graphics cards. Luckily for us, SK Hynix may have just given us some additional insight into when NVIDIA's upcoming consumer graphics cards – which include the GeForce GTX 1180 and GTX 1170 -- will launch thanks to comments that were made at GTC 2018. SK Hynix told Gamers Nexus that mass production of its GDDR6 memory (operating at speeds of at least 16Gbps) will take place within the next three months, which puts us on target for June/July. NVIDIA's next generation consumer GPUs are expected to use GDDR6, so we're probably looking at a July announcement at the... Read more...
A few days back, a rumor was making the rounds that NVIDIA would be launching some new graphics cards at either the Games Developers Conference (GDC) or its own Graphics Technology Conference (GTC). Lots of gamers and enthusiasts out there were very excited at that prospect, as GPU shortages are making it difficult and very expensive to buy a new graphics card right now. Unfortunately, a new rumor is making the rounds that throws cold water on the rumor from a few days back. The new rumor claims that multiple sources have confirmed that the most gamers can expect from NVIDIA at GTC or GDC is an announcement and perhaps some sort of teaser of the new cards. Other sources cited by Toms Hardware... Read more...
