NVidia to launch GeForce GTX 1180!

The basic 1180 card will be launched in late August and
the 1180+, 1170, 1160 will soon follow. So it’s interesting
to see how the new cards will perform compared to their
decessors (1080, 1080Ti, 1070, 1060, TitanX)

Rumors are spread that according to the last rollout of the GTX 10xx cards, the GTX 1180+ and the GTX 1170 might be released on September 30th, while the GTX 1160 entry-level card for Enthusiasts might be released on October, 30th.

In the focus there’s of course the power demand of the cards, their heat dissipation and how much frames per second you’ll get for the buck.

If cryptomining will profit from the new GPU series, is still not known but it might affect the pricing as well.

With the GTX 1080Ti cards still asking for a whopping 800US$, the GTX 1080 have dropped to a mere 600US$ and the GTX 1070 cards can be bought for just under 500 US$.

Yet they all have a hefty price tag if you ask me. But times are over where you can get midrange graphics cards for as low as 200US$.

As long as cryptominig is still profiting from fast GPUs especially fast GPUs like a GTX 1180+ might again scratch the 1000US$ border when being released.

I still wonder if there will be a “new” TitanX as well that’s even offering much more power but also asing for a higher price (around 1500US$ again…)

But for now not much is known about the new cards and so we’ll have to wait until they’re presented to the public. And even though the release dates may be known, there might be the typical shortage at the beginning as there are a lot of “early birds” willing to pay every price just to lay hands on one of the new cards.

Here are some tech specs for the GTX 1180 that have been spotted and even seem to outwit the Titan Xp that has been released yesteryear:

(The Titan Xp – Titan X with Pascal Architecture)

Running at roughly 210 watts and manufactured with 12nm process, the GTX 1180 will have 3,584 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs (texture mapping units), 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a Floating Point 32 (FP32) performance of a whopping 13 Teraflops when in Single precision mode. Quite impressive.

The GTX 1170 card will run with 2,688 CUDA cores, 168 TMUs, 8-16GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 9.7 Teraflops of FP32 performance when in Single precision mode. Even the GTX 1170 will spank the Titan Xp’s ass.

So while we’re waiting for the new Volta GPU lineup, the Titan Xp is still the fastest Consumer card that will suck out 3000 US$ when SLI’ed into your computer. Quite the same price tag as for the Titan V, however the Titan V is just for computing and nor for gaming. And it cannot be SLI’ed!
