After learning that NVIDIA would have already ceased production of its graphics GeForce GTX 980 Ti, now we know that the company would announce its first GPUs based on Pascal GPU core at the end of May, coinciding with one of the most important event of the year in the world of computing, we are talking about Computex 2016, which will open its doors on May 31, but the day before its opening NVIDIA will begin to reveal all the news.
NVIDIA would launch GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 at Computex 2016 in MAY
As indicated by SweClockers (a very reliable source), at first NVIDIA would launch the successor or the GeForce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980. These new GPUs will be the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 (unconfirmed name).
Regarding performance, there are rumors that the performance of these graphics cards will not be very high if we compare them with predecessors, but the power consumption will be improved, thanks to the new. The memory bus would remain at 256 bits, now here is the most interesting part, according to the source new GPUs will be based on the new standard GDDR5X, resulting in speeds of 10 to 12 Gbps, away from the 7 Gbps (8 Gbps Overclocked) of the current GDDR5 memory chips found in Maxwell. Together with a 256-bit memory bus, GDDR5X would provide bandwidth 320 and 384 Gb / s, in line with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and AMD’s Radeon R9 390X.
NVIDIA is aiming at Computex could be interpreted as their partner gets free reign to demonstrate self-designed solutions in place. Whether that happens remains a mystery, as several AIB partners have not yet received any chips by NVIDIA or even had access to the full specifications. It could mean that we will only see reference GPUs at Computex 2016.
