With TSMC an­nounc­ing that it has started mass pro­duc­tion of 7nm parts for Nvidia, and that “ship­ments for Nvidia’s new­gen­er­a­tion GPUs will play an­other driver of TSMC’s rev­enue growth in the fourth quar­ter”, it’s very ob­vi­ous that Nvidia will drop its next gen­er­a­tion of GPU’s upon us quite soon.

It’s ex­pected that at the back end of Au­gust, some­time dur­ing Gamescom, the of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment of the next gen­er­a­tion GeForce cards will hap­pen. Ap­par­ently AIBs will start be­ing seeded with very lim­ited quan­ti­ties of units to start their work on in early Au­gust. So, don’t ex­pect avail­abil­ity in Au­gust, per­haps Septem­ber for Founder’s Edi­tion units with cus­tom AIB de­signs to fol­low some­time there­after.

Not much is known about these “Tur­ing” GPU-based cards, but dou­ble-digit per­for­mance in­creases are ex­pected over the GTX 1080 Ti, and with GDDR6 test board pic­tures show­ing up, it is easy to sur­mise that GDDR6 will also be the mem­ory of choice on the new cards too.

With In­tel 9th gen pro­ces­sors due in Au­gust along with a new GeForce launch, Au­gust is go­ing to be quite a fun time for PC builders and up­graders!
