Nvidia GTX 1180 to get high speed output, new price details unveiled
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.
