Vietnamese store ‘H2 Extreme Gaming‘ has briefly made ASUS ROG STRIX 1180 available for pre-order. The store was quick to react and has taken down the page, however people were able to capture the listing which revealed a release date, as well as an initial price and the specifications for this upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1180 third-party model. Now before continuing, we strongly suggest taking everything you are about to read with a grain of salt.
According to the store, the ASUS ROG STRIX 1180 will release on September 28th and will be priced at… wait for it… $1530. I don’t know if this is a typo or if that NVIDIA truly believes that it can sell these upcoming GPUs at such premium prices. We all know that there is a demand for new graphics cards but this is almost double the amount of money that a GTX1080Ti currently costs.
Anyway, the ASUS ROG STRIX 1180 will be using the GT104 chip and will feature 3584 CUDA cores, 16GB of GDDR6 Micron video memory, a 256-bit memory bus and will offer 14.0 Gbps.
We don’t know whether this is legit or not. This could very well be a placeholder, however one thing is for certain; NVIDIA’s next-gen graphics cards are coming and will be the GeForce GTX11 series. We also have hints from various sources that NVIDIA targets a late August/early September release so this also falls in line with it. And regarding the specs and that ridiculously high price… well… we’ll have to wait and see!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
