Lenovo Blurts Out GeForce "11-series"

A Lenovo spokesperson inadvertantly disclosed that NVIDIA's next GeForce GTX consumer lineup will follow the numbering sequence "11-series" (eg: GTX 1180), laying to rest rumors that it could even follow the "20-series" (eg: GTX 2080) naming convention. Speaking with Brainbean at the company's E3 booth (published last week), the spokesperson was shown describing the company's Legion Cube gaming desktops, which ships with a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card in its base variant. The spokesperson is then heard saying that along the road, the company would expand its graphics options to include GeForce "11-series."

This should mean that the company will follow a predictable launch cycle of introducing its next-generation graphics architecture with the GeForce GTX 1180 and possibly GTX 1170; following it up with smaller GTX 1160 and GTX 1150; and in the following months, release the big GTX 1180 Ti. The spokesperson hints at the likelihood of Lenovo adding these as options to the Legion desktops by "Fall 2018," which could mean a DIY channel launch by late-Summer or early-Fall.
The video follows.

How do we know for certain that the Lenovo guy has had confirmation from Nvidia that it's the "11 series" and he wasn't just assuming it will follow the current numbering system?

Why do we need to know for certain? It could be called "pink elephants" for all I care, it would still be the same card in the box.

Personally I don't care what they call it....as long as the replacement for the 1080 is faster than a 1080Ti :)

Do you see the number 1180 everywhere? Does 1180 come up in conversation? Do you notice 1180 on television? Do you hear 1180 on the radio? What does it mean when you see and hear 1180 everywhere?

When you see a number such as 1180 over and over again, it is an angel trying to communicate with you through numbers.

So let me get this straight - now we no longer have misleading Wccftech babble with at least some semblance of direction, but we are down to debating the names?

Its a sad day in GPU land indeed.

Wouldn't surprise me if nVidia had all shrouds redone as GTX 1280 just because.

Anyone taking bets on them skipping the 13 series just because?

Because we're commenting on a news article that treats what was said as accidental release of NDA information, which is possible, but it's just as (if not more) likely that the "leaker" may just have been commenting based on the rumors he's heard which are the same as what we have heard, hence it's relevant to point that out.

Because if you don't point that out, the sky will fall?
Relax, people that don't know how to treat what X or Y "accidentally leaked", won't be any smarter after you spell it out for them ;)
