Details and leaks about NVIDIA’s new GPU series started as early as March, when there were rumors of an announcement from NVIDIA at GDC 2018. It was known that it would be a 12nm process technology set for release in 2018, and would be based on the Turing architecture.

Promising new leaks from wccftech suggest that the GTX 1180 would be powered by a 104-class GPU codenamed GT104. The GPU measures around ~400mm², features 3584 CUDA cores, a 256-bit GDDR6 memory interface and 8 to 16 gigabytes of 16Gbps GDDR6 memory. The graphics card is expected to have a core clock of around ~1.6GHz and a boost clock of around ~1.8GHz. The TDP of this graphics card is unconfirmed to date, but is expected to be somewhere between 170-200W.

Peak FP32 compute performance is expected to be around 13 TFLOPS, depending on how high of a clock speed the graphics card will be able to hit and how often. This does make it competitively viable, putting it ahead of the GTX Titan XP in terms of performance.

The pricing as well as the probably release date are some of the most obscure part of the leaks. Whispers indicate that the card will be released in summer, with all leaks and rumors pointing towards a debut around the month of July. The MSRP of the price at release is expected to be $699, which does make it equivalent in cost to the MSRP of a GTX 1080Ti, and $100 more expensive than the launch price of a GTX 1080.
