New leaks reveal that Nvidia's GTX 1180 will support higher refresh rates through one VR-friendly connection, making it possible to render [email protected] Hz content for each eye, and this would also apply to the TV-sized G-Sync 4K monitors. Price-wise, the GTX 1180 will not match the original launch MSRP of the GTX 1080, as there will be two versions and the most affordable one is supposed to cost US$999.

Nvidia’s CEO Jensen Huang claimed at Computex this year that the next gen gaming GPUs will be released “a long time from now”, but trusted sources already informed that the new GTX 11xx series should be announced in late July / early August, with mobility GPU versions expected to land some time in Q4 2018. Huang most likely did not want to spoil a larger marketing scheme and had to cut it short for people who were expecting any teasers.

Now, according to Tom’s Hardware’s anonymous sources, the upcoming GPUs should integrate a brand new VR-friendly connector that allows for much higher refresh rates over a single cable. This should translate to 120 Hz per each eye in 4K resolutions that will probably get delivered through a new HDMI 2.1 output.

Previous reports claimed that the next gen GPUs from Nvidia would be priced quite similar to the launch MSRPs of the GTX 1080 series, but the latest info from TweakTown suggests that the GTX 1180 will come in two variants: a US$999 model and a US$1,499 model with more VRAM.

Nvidia will probably start selling its Founders Editions in early August, while third-party integrators could start shipping their custom versions in September. The updated Quadro professional lineup is also expected to make an appearance at Siggraph in August.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
