NVIDIA is about to launch its next-generation graphics cards next month. This is not an official announcement but it is a strong leak. The leak comes from a YouTuber, Gamer Meld. According to the leak, GeForce GTX 1180 will be launched on 30th August.
There were rumors about GeForce 11 series for so long. But this final rumor seems legit. Gamer Meld claims that he got an email from an NVIDIA board partner. In the email, we can see the release dates and other details about the new generation graphics cards from NVIDIA.
According to this email release dates are like this:
- 30th August: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180
- 30th September: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1170, GeForce 1180+ (?)
- 30th October: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1160
What is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180+
Since this email comes from a board partner, this model should be special for that partner. Because NVIDIA doesn’t release a model with plus, at least they didn’t do it so far. NVIDIA mostly do their launches on Thursday’s or Tuesday’s so, this leak looks good right now. All of these four SKUs are for desktop. We don’t have any information about the new models planned for notebooks yet.
Launches could be at gaming fairs
The time schedule shows that there’s a press conference on 21st August but this will probably be board partners meeting, rather than a complete launch. NVIDIA would do another event for gamers. And I suppose this event will be at the gaming fairs because the dates match.
Which NVIDIA card do you expect the most?
