    $1500 is way too much, I doubt anyone is foolish enough to spend that much on a gaming card, even if it is 2x as fast. That's 1180ti money right there, not an 1180 sized price. Nvidia is making another mistake if they think that's gonna sell in quantities.

    And, more importantly, who *needs* 2x the FPS? Most every popular game is already running more than fast enough @ 144 FPS, with FPS limiters already in use @ 144hz. With 2x the performance you'd end up throwing all the added frames on the floor anyway.

    Besides, that "leak" has already been proven a fake, with photo-shopped collateral images.

    Good thing he isn't going to Germany, Nvidia is probably going to announce some Mercedes or Porsche auto-drive alliance, no gaming cards to be seen. :D

    If Nvidia really does release a $1500 1180 card, and an $1100 1170 card, it only proves Nvidia are desperate to make back cash from the collapse of mining demand - and to help pay the storage fee's on the warehouses of Pascal cards and Pascal GPU chips that will never be sold.

    I think Nvidia and the 3rd party makers that screwed over gaming for everyone for more than a year should pay penance and build and sellout their inventory of 1080ti's for $500, 1080's for $350, and 1070's for $200 until they run out of inventory, even if it takes another year delay for the NG of Nvidia GPU's.

    That'll allow AMD to compete head to head with current Pascal generation with their new 7nm GPU's.

    How can Nvidia justify the losses from bulldozing all those unsold Pascal GPU's?

    That's gonna be a tough sell to investors.

    First, the thumbnail image on that video is clickbait, this is about a desktop line product not a laptop.

    It's a booth rep parroting what he's heard - nothing specific - general placeholder words and dates, trying to make this new line relevant by adding that it will *also* come with the "new" Nvidia GPU when it shows up some time in the future - he knows and says nothing specific. Standard marketing / sales speak to try to push old product technology on the promise of new technology to be added down the road.

    Listen to the guy at 01:35 and 2:45:

    Take a look at Lenovo's new Legion Tower and Cube small form factor gaming PC's.


    "As well as along with up to GTX 1060 at this time but time to market with NVIDIA 11 series up to 1180 down the road."

    "up to 1060 at this time, of course, with the NVIDIA 11 series time to market later this fall would get those GPUs as well. via Lenovo Rep at E3 2018"

    "...According to DigiTimes, the latest word on the street is that Nvidia is all stocked up and ready for the GTX 11 launch..."

    That article has been debunked as a misread of old news about Nvidia getting stuck with over 1 Million last gen Pascal GPU's - likely mostly unused dies, and not final built GPU cards ready to ship.

    Wccf mis-applied that 1 Million inventory information to new generation GPU's ready to release, that's not what the source says.

    Nvidia may indeed be well on their way to producing the next gen GPU's, and maybe even has a small inventory that's been sent out to AIB partners for development, but it's unlikely Nvidia is going to order up a huge quantity of next gen GPU dies when Nvidia and AIB partners have 4 million+ last generation Pascal GPU's still to unload. :)

    1 Million Next Gen NVIDIA GPUs?

    Original Digitimes article:

    Graphics card prices expected to drop in July
    Monica Chen, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES, Friday 29 June 2018
    https://www.digitimes.com/news/a20180629PD204.html

    "...
    Currently, the worldwide graphics card market has an inventory of around several million units and Nvidia has around a million of GPUs waiting to be released, said the sources. With cryptocurrency miners also expected to begin selling their used graphics cards to the retail channel, vendors are expected to introduce major price cuts to compete.

    Nvidia's next-generation GPUs made using TSMC's 12nm and 7nm processes are also expected to be postponed to late fourth-quarter 2018 until after inventory returns to safe levels, the sources said.
