At first let's look at some historical facts about performance gain over GPU generations.

All information is from TechPowerUp benchmark tests (performance summary comparison).

From GTX480 (40nm) to GTX580 (40nm) performance gain ~ 16%
From GTX580 (40nm) to GTX680 (28nm) performance gain ~ 30%
From GTX680 (28nm) to GTX780 (28nm) performance gain ~ 21%
From GTX780 (28nm) to GTX980 (28nm) performance gain ~ 30%
From GTX980 (28nm) to GTX1080 (16nm) performance gain ~ 67%
From GTX1080 (16nm) to GTX1180 (12nm) performance gain ~ 35 to 45% ??? (If look at current rumored specs) 3584 Cuda Cores with GDDR6 memory and probably the same Volta architecture but only without tensor cores.

I will remind that GTX1080TI is ~ 35% faster than GTX1080
And Titan V with 43% more Cuda Cores and HBM2 memory (Volta architecture) is only on average ~ 25% faster than GTX1080TI (That information is form PC Perspective benchmark test).

What do you think about that ?

You are looking at performance gains between generations completely out of context.
You have massive architectural change first fermi to kepler (no more double clocked shaders), then from kepler to maxwell (tile based rasterizer), then maxwell to pascal massive clock change ... that's proper context for those increases and a clue for next gen ;)

Generally the jump is 25-30% per gen. That 67% over there is wildly exaggerated because we now put the 980 in resolutions and situations where it runs out of VRAM or shaders, such as 4K, while a 1080 does fine at that res. When you restrict the comparison to the mainstream resolution (1080p), it becomes a whole other reality. Agreed, for Maxwell > Pascal the jump is still over 30%, but rather in the region of 35-40% at best.

This information to me personally sounds very bad! Because that's is GPU refresh at the best! There is no IPC improvement if you compare cuda core count. Two different architectures really? More looks like shrink down form 16nm to 12nm and some tweaks.

For architecture, compare fully unlocked ones.
So GTX 580 to GTX 780 Ti to Titan XP (ie. full big chips to full big chips), or GTX 560 Ti to GTX 680 to GTX 980 to GTX 1080.

Yeah but clock were low since the half node is hardly mature, the GPU is giant (800mm^2 is a lot even for a seasoned process), and the V brings the Titans back to their semi-professional roots, meaning a 2080/1180Ti would've done better in gaming, having a bigger TDP, more gaming oriented BIOS and driver, not to mention no tensor cores, and other Compute hw tweaks. But yeah, unless Turing brings some gaming enhancements, and not just cut the pro elements, its gonna be a second gen of 0 IPC

GPUs are designed differently than CPU , there are little IPC gains that can be had. Most major improvements come from increased core count and clocks.

Titan V is the new flagship GPU it will be approximately one par with ~ GTX1180TI look at GPU history! If it's true than there is no place for big performance gain over next generation.

50%, in case of 16Gbps G6, and 30% in case of 12GBps. as for the 70 card we have 40% gpu and 50% for the memory so roughly 45%.

According to some rumors the next mainstream dGPU will be GT104 i.e. Turing, not Volta, needless to say YMWV with such stuff. It's quite possibe that Nvidia may finally go the Intel route & seperate their (desktop) gaming & workstation cards at the hip, not necessarily castrate them like they've done in the past.

Thats is just a name i don't think it will be different architecture they probably just will cut off tenser cores on smaler die maybe some minor improvements. Look at Intel Skylake, Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake basically the same architecture now for how many years ?

Right now also nVIDIA has no competition with AMD so.... they don't really need huge performance increase over previous generation GPUs. It's sad to say but AMD in GPU market is nobody if comparing to nVIDIA in raw power and performance per watt.

Skylake & Skylake X aren't the same, that's what I was referrring to when I said that about Nvidia, right now they've enough money (& demand) to pull something similar off.

Performance is dictated by money. With no competition I would expect around 20% more performance on average with the new cards. I don't see why Nvidia should give any more than that.

1180 has got to be faster than 1080Ti. Especially considering the 2nd hand market is gonna be flooded with those. If it isn't, I am waiting for 1180Ti. If I can get 1.5x of 1080 performance I won't mind a high pricetag. I think nvidia knows that in the enthusiast segment the higher the performance, the higher the profit they can make. Refreshing the lineup with marginal performance gain is going to stagnate the sales.

I think Nvidia will play it wise, 20-30% and regardless of name their shader cores are unlikely to change, they didn't on the Titan V, the work went into tensor cores and integration.
The 1180 will greatly resemble a 1080 with faster memory on an improved process because that's what it will be.

With a overstocked channel now and a second hand market on the rise as expected, and the best performing card already out, expect high prices for these, with low stock too since it would not make sense to flood the market with the channel full.

At present Nvidia are focused on Ai and data centres not gaming cards and why would they be , they're taking a leaf from intels book , when at the top 10-20% will do and that doesn't require shaders to be re architected, just a process kick up and faster memory, as i said, Turing ,pah ,they are just names and mearly indicate A difference not a significant one though.

From GTX480 (40nm) to GTX580 (40nm) performance gain ~ 16%
Barely a refresh
From GTX580 (40nm) to GTX680 (28nm) performance gain ~ 30%
Moving from a huge mother-die, to a very small middle of the pack one
From GTX680 (28nm) to GTX780 (28nm) performance gain ~ 21%
Moving from the middle chip to the almost-high end of the same architecture
From GTX780 (28nm) to GTX980 (28nm) performance gain ~ 30%
A move from a large die to again, a small 66%-of-full one
From GTX980 (28nm) to GTX1080 (16nm) performance gain ~ 67%
An actual move from one middle of the pack chip, to a completely new architecture and lithography while keeping the same power consumption.

This comparison is a bit problematic IMO, since prices and positions are a bit different albeit similar monikers.
Full enabled chips should be compered to other fully enabled ones, cut-down by 30-35% ones to cut-down ones. Per-die size and power consumpion, the changes were actually huge.

We're talking GTX 580 to GTX 780 Ti to GTX 980 Ti to GTX 1080 Ti, or GTX 460 to GTX 660 to GTX 960 to GTX 1060. Those are incredible gains.

A realistic view on the situation: The "12nm" process is only a smaller version of the "16nm" process. Unless nVidia decides to do some massive architecture changes, 15-20% improvement at the same power consumption is what we will probably get.

pure guesswork but i would say %25 to %30 more grunt with maybe a little less power consumption..

as has been said Nvidia have no reason to do more but any less and people wont bother to upgrade.. having said that they are expecting up to a %60 drop in sales from falling mining demand.. maybe they will try harder just to get some of this back..

No, you need to get that out of your head. The flagship GPU right now is the 1080ti. Pascal is the gaming 'state of the art' today. Not Volta.

GV100 / Titan V is not a Geforce segment card, was never marketed as such, only a few deluded nubs and rich kids think 'Titan' has anything to do with gaming. It does NOT. Titan simply is Nvidia's playground to push the envelope in whatever way they think the market is moving. And they have been completely correct so far: when Titan moved out of compute and into 'fastest gaming GPU' the market moved along in that direction with a strong desire for high-end gaming GPUs to drive 1440p and 4K. Today, Titan answers to the strong market push for AI / machine learning. Tomorrow? Who knows, perhaps it'll do your laundry or controls your smart home.

Even this comparison doesn't completely work out, because across all these generations we're also looking at different APIs, different mainstream resolutions, different Shader Model & other feature versions, etc etc etc. Old cards simply lack the efficiency bumps newer generations have not only in hardware but in what code they support well.

Because more performance gives them the opportunity to increase the price and margin. Pascal is a perfect example: it was marketed *with an MSRP increase* across the entire stack of products and we took it for granted exactly because of that reason. Do note: this is the exact 'no competition' situation you're talking about - it is exactly at this time that they made one of the biggest jumps forward.

I think you missing the point here.
"Flagship" is decided by marketing. Chips and cards are designed by engineers.
OP wanted to measure increase in speed/performance across generations and not in naming schemes, or cash grabbing.

Fastest Fermi = GF110 (GTX 580 "3GB")
Fastest Kepler = GK110b (Titan Black)
Fastest Maxwell (2.0) = GM200 (Titan X "M")
Fastest Pascal = GP102/GP100 (Titan Xp)

Fastest card NV can do in Pascal design is Titan Xp, not GTX 1080 Ti.
I refuse to call latter one a "flagship" because fagships should represent the best company can do at given point in time.
If NV wanted too, they could release fully unlocked 3840 CC GP102 (with GDDR5X memory, because HBM 2.0 will be limited to Titan/Quadro/Tesla series), as for example "Geforce GTX 1090".
They have the means, it's simply not economic to do that at this point.

There is what, 10% performance between the XP and the 1080ti. If you want it, you can have that one... XP is so relevant that I simply forgot about it ;) It does not change the reason Titan exists - its Nvidia's playground and they do whatever they like with it. Remember Titan Z, no one ever considered that a serious option in the gaming space. And Titan V is of the same kind, it does not belong in these comparisons. Even for their completely twisted price/perf metrics the Titans should be ignored in these comparisons. If they really are needed as a gaming GPU in the regular stack, Nvidia releases it as such: enter GTX 780/ti, GTX 580, etc etc. The flagship tells you nothing about relative performance between generations either because its not a regularly appearing product with a singular reason of existance.

The bottom line of whichever approach you choose for any such comparison is going to be that the comparison is flawed. You cannot compare across generations like this without proper context and a boatload of 'ifs and buts'.

Hopefully when GTX 1180 will come out in july GTX 1080 Ti prices will drop the same as it happened to GTX 1080 when it was realased right after month GTX 980 Ti price was dropped from ~ 600eur to ~ 430eur.

At that time GTX 980 Ti was better bang for the buck than GTX 1070 new from store.

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX graphics cards based on the "Volta" architecture, could feature GDDR6 memory, according to a supply deal SK Hynix struck with NVIDIA, resulting in the Korean memory manufacturer's stock price surging by 6 percent. It's not known if GDDR6 will be deployed on all SKUs, or if like GDDR5X, it will be exclusive to a handful high-end SKUs. The latest version of SK Hynix memory catalogue points to an 8 Gb (1 GB) GDDR6 memory chip supporting speeds of up to 14 Gbps at 1.35V, and up to 12 Gbps at 1.25V.

Names aside, it doesn't matter too much what Nvidia releases, it should still be a good jump from Pascal.
