NVIDIA Set to Reveal Its Next-Gen GPU in August
According to a report from Wccftech, NVIDIA is likely to launch it much-awaited next-gen graphics sometime in August. The company plans to ship the card to its associates, a process which could begin in August this year. It is anticipated that NVIDIA will officially declare the chip prior to the delivery.
Reports from several quarters indicate that the GPU launching in the third quarter is likely to go ahead as planned in spite of the news that its existing gen cards are more than the demand and have thus flooded the market.
Seeding To Begin Before Long
According to Usman Pirzada from Wccftech, partners of GeForce add-in-board would receive the next-gen NVIDIA graphics in August. Despite the fact that the card’s nomenclature is yet to be confirmed, they are however anticipated to be the GeForce GTX 1180 range. The firm’s new Turing structural design will control the cards from the company.
Additionally, Usman indicated that the first batch of the shipment are likely to be limited, with the numbers likely to be between 150 and 300 chips per AIB. It is expected that most of these chips will be utilized for purposes of expansion. It is also worth noting that TSMC reiterated that they will soon commence the production of NVIDIA 7nm GPUs in large numbers.
A statement from Usman also indicates that the Turing architectural design will be laid on the basis of 7nm process. He also seemed to suggest that the amount available to the public would not rise for at least four weeks following the launch. It is expected that the chip will facilitate double-digit progress in performance when compared to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
An Imminent Launch
Information from other sources indicate that an imminent launch is very much likely. Power Logic, a manufacturer of cooling fans, is anticipating a rise in revenue growth within the next six months. This is as a result of the GPU cooling fan shipments, including the new ventilation fans for cars.
According to Hsu Wen-Feng, Power Logic’s chairman, 85% of the company’s yearly proceeds are generated from cooling fans which are meant for gaming PCs. Hsu anticipates the growth in revenue to be higher in the third quarter even as Nvidia unveils the next-gen GPU.
Information from yet another website indicate that Nvidia has sent invites for its Gamescom event which is set to begin in August. However, the invitation does not state the new GeForce series GPU. However, it promises a practical performance of the state-of-the-art PC gaming title.
Information from the VideoCardz website also indicated that AMD is likely to host a related occasion. Nevertheless, there is scanty information regarding the plans. The third quarter launch of the next-gen cards is in essence great news for PC gamers who have been challenged with the rise in pricing.
