HWiNFO plans to add support for Nvidia next-generation GPUs in the near future

HWiNFO is a software utility that can deliver users in-depth monitoring and logging for most major PC components, allowing users to look at their CPU/GPU clock speeds, thermals and other useful statistics. 

The tool is frequently updated to support next-generation hardware, often adding motherboard-specific sensor monitoring support and other advanced features. 

In these update, we can frequently find the names or codenames of future processors, with references to Intel's Ice Lake architecture being present in the software's patch notes for quite some time. Now, HWiNFO lists Nvidia GV102 and GV104 support in their "upcoming changes" section, which suggests that Nvidia's next-generation graphics cards will utilise the company's Volta architecture.    

Nvidia's Titan V, Quadro V100 and Tesla V100 graphics cards are all based on the company's GV100 graphics core, with the V in the core naming scheme standing for Volta. This GV-based naming scheme suggests that Nvidia's next-generation graphics cards will not be based on a new architecture, though it is possible that these new core designs will offer enhancements over the company's original GV100 core architecture. 

Nvidia's GTX 1080, 1070 Ti and 1070 are based on Nvidia's GP104 (Pascal) core design, with Nvidia's high-end Titan Xp and GTX 1080 Ti using the company's GP102 core design. Nvidia's traditional naming scheme suggests that GV102 and GV104 will act as replacements for Nvidia's high-end graphics card lineup.

While GV102 and GV104 core names suggest that Nvidia's next-generation graphics card lineups are based on Volta, it is possible that Nvidia is using this naming scheme to subvert consumer expectations and limit potential leaks. It is worth remembering that Nvidia first revealed their GV100-based Tesla V100 back in May 2017, over a year ago. Nvidia could have easily refined their graphics card designs over the past year, though this remains to be seen.  

What seems clear now is that Nvidia is preparing to launch new graphics cards, finally replacing the company's ageing Pascal architecture with something new.
