An official Gigabyte UK representative confirmed that the mobility version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 11xx series should arrive towards the end of the year. This pretty much confirms that the desktop versions are slated to be released this summer, as the mobility solutions usually get released a few months later.

Even though the exact date of release for the GTX 11xx series was not unveiled, the next gen GPUs are expected to launch some time this summer. Nvidia has been very reluctant towards revealing any details about the new family of GPUs, and most of the information came via industry insiders and rumors. Thus, the Volta-based flagships that may be codenamed either Ampere or Turing will end up at least 50% faster than the current GTX 1080 and will integrate the fast GDDR6 memory. What of the mobility versions?

A Gigabyte representative revealed a few weeks ago that the next gen mobility GPUs are scheduled to be released in late 2018. The announcement was made on the OCUK forums by user Atom80 who appears to be an official vendor representative for Gigabyte's UK NB Team. Another user asked about Gigabyte’s plans to provide a GTX 1080 upgrade for the Aero 15X V8-CF1 notebook that currently comes with the GTX 1070 8 GB version. Atom80 answered that “the range coming in now will be stable and not having any additional refreshes until the next gen of GPU’s is announced. Currently scheduled more towards the end of the year.”

There it is, the only official confirmation regarding the release of Nvidia’s next gen GPUs. Since the mobility solutions always get launched a few months after the desktop solutions, the rumored summer release for the discrete cards is now as good as confirmed.

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.
