Nvidia Turing: GTX 1180 release date cast into doubt, plus everything we know so far

Nvidia GeForce GTX

After months of extortionate graphics card prices and a general feeling of malaise toward today’s current crop of GPUs, many of us have been looking forward to seeing what Nvidia have in store for their next set of GeForce GTX graphics cards, which are currently going by the code name ‘Turing’. Set to replace many of today’s best graphics cards like the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, the current thinking is that Nvidia’s Turing GPUs will either become a new 11-series of graphics cards, taking on names like the GTX 1180, or even a new 20-series under monikers like the GTX 2070.

However, while all previous information pointed toward a vague autumn release date, Nvidia’s CEO Jensen Huang has now thrown everything into doubt, saying it will be “a long time” before we see the next GeForce GPU. What does that mean for Turing? Here’s everything we know so far.

Nvidia Turing graphics cards reveal set for August

After months of speculation and a will-they-won’t-they game of leaked and delayed release dates, Nvidia look set to finally reveal all about their upcoming Turing graphics cards and the GTX 1180 this August. There’s a chance we may hear about them formally beforehand, of course, especially if the current rumours about a GTX 1180 Founders Edition appearing next month are to be believed, but whatever happens, the program outline for this year’s Hot Chips conference suggests we’ll definitely be hearing at least something about what’s in store on August 20.

Are graphics card prices finally starting to come down? GTX 1080s haven’t been this cheap since Black Friday

Is it… is it nearly over? Has the time finally come when I can stand firm, brandish my credit card and… buy a new graphics card? After what seems like months, nay, years of over-exaggerated price inflation due to all of today’s best graphics cards being like sweet, sweet honey to would-be cryptocurrency mining bandwagoners, graphics card prices might actually be starting to drop – and about time, too.

Case in point, you can currently get one of Gigabyte’s Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 cards for a mere £509 over on Amazon today, which, while not exactly is the same as its original RRP, is the cheapest it’s been all year – and certainly the cheapest it’s been since Black Friday when we rounded up all the best graphics card deals. Go forth while stocks last, brave graphics card upgraders. Read the rest of this entry »

Nvidia’s Turing graphics cards apparently delayed AGAIN

Not Nvidia's Turing

Normally, delays are considered a Bad Thing, but as the great graphics card price crisis rumbles on, it’s not like any of us actually have any money to upgrade our PCs anyway, so the later, the better, really, when it comes to hardware.

Indeed, the latest gossip appears to suggest that Nvidia’s Turing graphics cards won’t be here until the autumn now, after previously being tipped for a reveal at the end of this month during Nvidia’s GTC conference, and then later for a mid-June release date once that initial rumour had been well and truly busted.

Maybe Nvidia won’t be releasing their new Ampere/Turing graphics cards at GTC 2018 after all

Wrong kind of Turing

Earlier this week, the hot goss on the graphics card grapevine was that Nvidia was going to launch its new, next-gen line-up of GeForce GTX graphics cards at this year’s GTC 2018 conference later this month. Dubbed Nvidia Turing, these cards would replace Nvidia’s current range of 10-series cards, such as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 etc, with a brand-new, potential 20-series or maybe even 11-series of cards that would go something like the GTX 2070 and GTX 2080, or GTX 1170 or GTX 1180, making some of this generation’s best graphics cards even better.

However, despite several outlets confirming with  lots of ‘sources close to the matter’ that this will in fact happen, a new report from Tom’s Hardware suggests that all this is actually a load of hogwash and Nvidia won’t be launching anything of the sort at GTC this year, or indeed GDC while we’re on conferences beginning with the letter ‘G’.
