NVIDIA "GT104" Based GeForce GTX 1180 Surfaces on Vietnamese Stores

A Vietnamese online store put up the first listing of a GeForce GTX 1180 based ASUS ROG Strix graphics card. The store even put out some specifications of the card, beginning with it being based on the "GT104" silicon, based on the "Turing" series. With "Turing" NVIDIA appears to be forking its GPU architectures on the basis of chips that feature DPFP (double-precision floating point) cores and Tensor cores, and those that lack both (and only feature SPFP cores). "Turing" is probably a fork of "Volta" that lacks both DPFP CUDA cores and Tensor cores; and sticks to the cheaper GDDR6 memory architecture, while "Volta" based GPUs, such as the TITAN V, implement pricier HBM2 memory.

Among the specifications of the GeForce GTX 1180 are 3,584 CUDA cores, and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. The memory is clocked at 14 GHz (GDDR6-effective), which works out to 409.6 GB/s of memory bandwidth. Pre-launch prices, just like most specifications, tend to be bovine excrement, which in this case converts to a little over USD $1,500, and isn't really relevant. What is, however, interesting is the availability date of September 28.

It's a weird naming scheme if it's real. Why would a major new version had minor number change lol. Makes no sense. GTX 2080 would make a lot of sense coming from GTX 1080, but GTX 1080 going to GTX 1180 seems like a GTX 1080 refresh in terms of "just another card from old series".

Gtxx sounds really cool. :cool:

It makes perfect sense. It went from 9xx to 10xx and now to 11xx. 20xx would be a quantum leap.

Agree that GTX 1180 sounds a bit weird when i was somewhat expecting 2080.. but I think I'll get used to it quite quickly..

No it doesn't. New actual models always jump major numbers. Which is GTX 1xxx and GTX 2xxx. With this logic, it should be called GTX 1090 and still make sense somehow as brand new GPU... Which is why I'm questioning this numbering decision if real.

Not really... every NVIDIA iteration has gone up by 100's in recent years. It just looks different because it's not the first digit.

The bigger thing is every spec posted anywhere so far is just someones guess based off no real source. I'd hazard to say that everything on that page can be thrown out as nonsense and it's just a marketing ploy.

Yeah, it has gone up by 100 because the numbers were in hundreds, not thousands... Comparing apples to peanuts...

If it was real it should have "16G" or "whatever G" on the side of the box. It's just this edited shot of 1080 strix. Even shadows are precisely the same.

No I'm comparing facts... it makes much more sense as far as future naming schemes go to just have the consumer get used to 11xx and then 12xx etc..

What ? :roll:

Anyway, I'm still counting on GTX 2077 in 2020.

You literally have to ask? 0_o ? When in history has a whole new model only had a second digit increased? Like, ever in the last 2 decades of graphic card models?

Well last time I had mathematics at school, 11 was still the number right after 10. Then came 12. 20 wasn't there until after 19.
I think they'll stick with 11- and 12-, then move to 20-.

Mathematics and marketing are not the same thing. That's not how marketing and people's mindset works. And that's not how model numbering works. Why call it GTX 1180 then, why not GTX 1081 ? It's mathematically in sequence to GTX 1080...

Cause the last two digits have always been different SKUs for one given family of cards, not the family itself. Jeeeezusss..... can you stop complaining about petty stuff once and for all....
I think they have to consider what sounds good. Ten eighty,eleven eighty and twelve eighty sound fine and they're in line with their naming policy. If they didn't want the 11-series, they wouldn't have made the 10-series either. Apparently they're just fine with 100 increments in the name of the series and same 30/50/70/80 numbers for SKUs.

Architecture/series

Have you never heard the expression "the ten series" about Pascal cards. You're just trolling about petty stuff as always.

Well there's the possibility that Turing isn't a major deviation from Pascal, kinda like how Pascal wasn't much different* from Maxwell.

*Volta is the major uarch change, but we still don't know if it's gonna be released as a gaming card or not.

I think they should keep on adding numbers.. 11080 thats much better…. LOL :D then the NeXT series could be 412080 EXTREME.... POW starsticker…..

it probably isn't. I think we're not going to see a major uarch overhaul for nvidia for quite some time. There's going to be die shrinks and new memory, higher clocks and software changes, but they'll basically all be a better version of the previous one. I mean, why would they. They could make vulkan and async benefit the 9/10 series without hardware support.

256-bit wide memory interface. clocked at 14 GHz (GDDR6-effective) works out to 448 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

16GB of double sided memory on the back of the PCB too. piggy-backed 8 Gbit chips on each side.

Just to think that asus wouldn't have thrown in another bunch of leds on the new series card is insanity. I bet there's going to be led illuminated power connectors and heatsink fins on the new ROG cards. BTW I think from 1080Ti on, nvidia requires AIBs to include "geforce gtx" on the side.
