If you are an avid PC player, then you are well aware of the price hikes on hardware within the past year. Video cards have skyrocketed in price as stocks have finally begun to replenish. With the top gaming card going to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, card manufacturers have been looking for a way to deal with the mining issue causing stock shortages. WCCFtech has received information on hardware specs and pricing for what is now known as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180. Powered by a 104 class GPU and featuring 3584 CUDA cores, a 256-big GDDR6 memory interface and 8 to 16 GB of 16Gbps GDDR6 memory, the specs aren’t too far off from the GTX 1080 Ti. The big difference will be the bandwidth capabilities of the GDDR6 ram. That should allow for higher-sized textures to render much faster.
The GTX GeForce 1180 is expected to perform around 13 TFLOPS. This will put it slightly ahead of the GTX Titan XP and 1080 Ti. The GTX 1180 will use what is called the Turing architecture as opposed to the Pascal architecture of the previous cards. The price of the Geforce GTX 1180 will come in at $699, which is a deal in comparison to what is currently on the market. This should launch around July 2018. This should hopefully mean by the end of 2018 or early 2019 that a GTX 1170 will hit shelves for hopefully around $499.
