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’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’.

AMD’s 16-core CPU and other exciting stuff

Yes, yes, a 16-core CPU is likely-going-on-definitely irrelevant for PC gaming. But it’s an exciting notion in simple technological terms and it represents something that certainly is important for gaming, namely that the PC as a platform has woken up again. Along with that mega-CPU from AMD, we also have the imminent prospect of new graphics card families from both AMD and Nvidia, new CPUs from Intel in response to AMD Ryzen assault, an intriguing new APU, again from AMD, that could just make for some nice cheapo laptops with genuine gaming chops and, well, plenty more. And the annual Computex tech shindig hasn’t even kicked off yet…
