Nvidia is set to launch its next-generation 11xx series GPUs on June 15, according to a new report. The first cards on the market will be its own Founders Edition designs, with AIB vendors delivering their first designs starting around August to September.

Nvidia is prepping its eagerly anticipated next-generation 11xx series GPUs for a June 15 launch, according to Tweak Town. Separately, Tom’s Hardware adds that we can expect Nvidia's reference design Founders Edition cards to be the first to market in July, followed by AIB (Add-In Board) vendors and their customized designs sometime during an August to September window. Notebook variants will start hitting the market later in the year.

The new Turing-based GPUs will succeed Nvidia's Pascal microarchitecture-based 10xx series cards and will be fabricated on a 12nm process. The 1180 will feature 3,584 CUDA cores, compared to the 2,560 CUDA cores on the soon to be superseded 1080. It will be fitted with either 8GB or 16GB of the latest 256-bit GDDR6 VRAM with speeds between 12Gbps to 14Gbps. The base clock is expected be set at 1.6GHz boosting to 1.8GHz.

In terms of performance, the new 1180 will deliver 13 TFLOPS of compute power, which actually pushes it past Nvidia's flagship Titan Xp for considerably less money than Nvidia than the US$1200 is currently charging for the Xp. It positively destroys the current 1080, which produces 8.7 TFLOPS of compute performance. Expect frame rates that deliver up to 1.5x current performance for each equivalent 11xx series model to the 10xx series.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
