Nvidia's upcoming flagship graphics card, anticipated to be known as the GeForce GTX 1180, will reportedly make its debut in the form of a Founders Edition card on June 15.
According to rumors compiled by Wccftech, the card, which is to be based on Nvidia's next-gen Turing architecture with a 12nm FinFET die shrink, and will reportedly sport the following numbers, in direct comparison with its predecessor, the currently sold GTX 1080:
|GTX 1080||GTX 1180|
|Lithography||16nm FinFET||12nm FinFET|
|Core Clock||1607 MHz||~1600 MHz|
|Boost Clock||1733 MHz||~1800 MHz|
|Peak FP32 Performance||8.9 Teraflops||13 Teraflops|
|Memory||8GB GDDR5X||8-16GB GDDR6|
|Memory Bandwidth||320 GB/s||
All of these numbers point to considerable improvements in performance and efficiency. At the end of the day, however, speculating on a graphics card that has yet to be released won't make it pop into existence, but the next best thing is a series of release dates that can tide you over until the product actually comes along.
Nvidia builds and releases in-house reference cards running on stock clock speeds and voltage, dubbed "Founders Edition" cards. Along this vein, sources tell TweakTown that the Founders Edition variant of the GTX 1180 will see a June 15th release, with OEMs like Asus, Gigabyte, and others releasing their own custom GTX 1180 cards later on in either August or September.
Prices are as of yet unknown, but it wouldn't be a stretch to suggest one similar to the initial $699 that the GTX 1080 Founders Edition set one back.
