Nvidia reportedly has 4 new 11-series graphics playing cards in the prepared for release within just the year, according to an insider leak.
YouTube broadcaster Gamer Meld claims to have obtained an email from a person of Nvidia’s ‘major board partners’ that specially mentions the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180, 1180+, 1170 and 1160 by name with these subsequent release dates.
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180 (thirtieth August Release Day)
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 1180+ (thirtieth September Release Day)
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 1170 (thirtieth September Release Day)
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 1160 (thirtieth Oct Release Day)
The email also purportedly goes on to demonstrate the GTX 11-series was delayed owing to an overstock of 10xx GPUs. Supposedly, this caused the business to changeover back again to 10-series generation to offer off its remaining bulk of Pascal graphics playing cards.
One thing smells fishy
Whilst this seems thrilling, there isn’t everything to ensure the authenticity of this email. Given how uncomplicated it would be to draft an email with any manufactured-up facts to on your own and redact specific elements, we’re likely to acquire this information with the best grain of salt.
There are also a several glaring holes in the narrative the email spells out. For case in point, even though most of the dates would coincide with the Nvidia regular Tuesday or Thursday release cadence, the September thirtieth launch day for the 1180+ and 1170 lands on an uncharacteristic Sunday.
The 1180+ GPU listed in the email is also a different quandary, which could refer to 3rd-bash playing cards or overclocked playing cards. But that in itself would also be bizarre, since it implies customized boards will be launched a thirty day period right after Nvidia’s preliminary Founders Version GPUs. In the earlier, 3rd-bash playing cards always launched together with the reference graphics playing cards.
The only detail that looks to align with what we know so considerably is the quick point out of a meeting call on August 21st, which transpires to be the exact day Gamescom begins – just where and when Nvidia is rumored to make its grand announcement for Turing GPUs.
No matter of irrespective of whether this rumor turns out to be accurate, we’re nonetheless hoping for new graphics playing cards sooner alternatively than later on.
