The latest flagship GPU from NVIDIA, the GeForce GTX 1180, will be launched as a Founders Edition card on June 15. The new card is expected to match the performance offered by the GeForce GTX Titan Xp at a lesser price.GTX 1180

According to rumours, the graphics card will be based on NVIDIA’s next-generation Turing Architecture and will use a 12nm FinFET die shrink.

Some preliminary performance leaks suggest a Peak FP32 compute performance to be around 13 TFLOPS. This puts it slightly above the GeForce GTX Titan Xp and the GTX 1080Ti. So you can expect around GTX Titan Xp level performance or maybe even slightly better, but at significantly lower power consumption.

Quite oddly, a June 15 release also means that the card won’t be launched at Computex but a week after that.

Founders Edition cards are build and released by NVIDIA itself and the cards run on stock clock speeds. NVIDIA will release the Founders Edition card first, then Add-in-Board partners like Zotac, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and others will release their own custom cards later on sometime in August-September.

The card is expected to be powered by GT104 GPU with around 8-16 GB of GDDR6 of RAM. The card, as mentioned earlier, is expected to provide Titan Xp level performance at a lower price.

Titan Xp retails at $1200 and although the official pricing is yet to be known, we can expect the GTX 1180 to be priced anywhere between $599 and $899.
