We all pretty much know by now that NVIDIA is working on its next-generation graphics cards. And although the green team has not revealed anything official yet, we’ve got a confirmation about the GeForce 11 series. At E3 2018, a Lenovo representative confirmed that NVIDIA’s next-generation high-end GPU will be called GTX1180 and that it will be coming to the Legion Desktop PCs in Fall 2018.
As Lenovo’s representative told YouTube’s ‘Brainbean’ in an interview:
“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.
Much like the tower where the 530 series would just have the red LEDs to the 360 motherboard along with i7 up to 32 megabytes of RAM (Editor: I’m pretty sure the rep meant gigabytes and not megabytes) 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.”
Again, this is the first time we’re hearing the name of NVIDIA’s new graphics card and its timeframe. Given the fact that Lenovo will add the NVIDIA 11 series graphics cards to its Legion Desktop PCs in Fall 2018, we should expect to see these GPUs hit the market a little bit earlier.
