Which would be the first-party Founders Edition of what many are calling the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 aka the successor to the 1080. With 4K HDR 120 - 144Hz GSYNC displays coming this year, it's being reported
that the GTX 1180 will support the new HDMI 2.1 standard - as current 4K output tops out at 60Hz over a single cable.
The single-cable is to support the next-generation of high-end VR. As for the launch, apparently NVIDIA has been meeting with OEM companies in recent weeks to provide specs for the next-gen card. As development will take approximately three months the timeline now sits with the Founders Edition launching late July and third-party cards releasing in September.
The GTX 1180 is rumoured to feature 3,584 CUDA cores, a clock speed of 1.6 to 1.8-GHz and 8 to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. Naturally, this brings up the question of pricing - with TweakTown noting that the GTX 1180 will be available in $999 and $1,499 USD variants. Which sounds a tad high.
More as it breaks.
