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.

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.
