Nvidia's next-gen GPUs could release as early as July

A report from Tom's Hardware has claimed that Nvidia's upcoming GTX 11/20 series of Turing GPUs could release as early as July, with anonymous sources claiming that the company's AIB partners will receive memory and silicon on June 15th. 

The report claims that a July release is likely for Founders Edition, Nvidia first-party, graphics cards, with Turing Quadro graphics cards releasing in August at Siggraph. 

Graphics cards from third-party manufacturers like ASUS, EVGA, MSI and Gigabyte will arrive later than their Founders Edition counterparts, with a release estimate in August or September. Mobile versions of these graphics cards should release in Q4. 

At this time not much is known about Nvidia's rumoured Turing series GPUs, though given Nvidia's recent focus on RTX Ray Tracing technology it seems likely that the company's next-generation graphics cards will include Tensor cores. This feature enabled complex AI calculations and RTX support, with Nvidia's Titan Volta being the only consumer GPU that currently contains the hardware feature.

Nvidia's next-generation graphics cards are also likely to feature GDDR6 memory, which allows Nvidia to offer higher levels of memory bandwidth per chip and maintain higher memory bandwidth levels on a smaller memory bus. This technology will also reduce the power draw of each GPU per unit of memory bandwidth, leaving more power available to feed the compute portion of the GPU. 

While specifications for Nvidia's upcoming GTX 1180 and 1170 GPUs have "leaked", most of the information that is currently available is nothing more than speculation, acting as placeholder (likely guessed) specifications rather than real data.

Let's hope they come out around the same price as the 1080 FE did or lower.Quote

All I can say is, GPU's have become too expensive, even for mid range cards. Quote

I like these 'leaks' coming out, not because of whether they're accurate or not, but because they will make many of those thinking of buying a new GPU hold off their purchase in anticipation of new GPU's, this in turn will put more pressure on retailers, who will have to drop prices even further on the 10xx line of stock they're scared of getting stuck with.

£399 & £499 1080 & 1080ti's soon, anyone? Quote

I doubt it is coming this early. Gddr6 hasn't had enough supply built up to support a Nvidia launch.Quote

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too, well, it's more of a fact than a thought.

Also, no event has been announced - and Nvidia does like to out their gaming cards at their own events.

Lastly, Tom's site is more often than not full of it with their made out of thin air sources.Quote
