A number of leaks seem to recommend that Nvidia is about to get very busy launching new gaming GPUs throughout product segments and worth bands. First, we now have a report of latest cellular GeForce RTX graphics processors for laptops, that are the most definitely to be actual as the corporate almost at all times affords cellular variations of its desktop GPUs. Subsequent, there are stories of a desktop GeForce RTX 2060 that will be slotted beneath the present GeForce RTX 2070. There have additionally been imprecise stories of a GeForce RTX 2050, though in a wierd twist, different stories recommend that a complete new mid-range GeForce GTX 11-series is to be introduced as a substitute or along with these GPUs.
Beginning with probably the most plausible hearsay, Tom’s cites a Reddit publish wherein a person has shared images of what seem like a minor Taiwanese ODM’s spec sheet for upcoming gaming laptops. The specs embody MXM (Cell PCIe Module) what are being known as the GeForce RTX 2080 MXM OC, GeForce RTX 2070 MXM OC, and GeForce RTX 2060 MXM OC. All three are labelled as “ overclocking model”.
Whereas the higher-end two cellular GPUs are listed with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM, the GeForce RTX 2060 MXM OC has 6GB of GDDR6 RAM. From high-end to low-end, the three GPUs could have 2,944, 2,304, and 1,526 CUDA cores respectively. January 15 is talked about as a tentative transport date for the GPU, although will probably be as much as particular person manufacturers equivalent to Asus, MSI, HP, Dell, Lenovo and Acer to announce laptops based mostly on them.
The purported Taiwanese ODM’s slides even present a graph of what seems to be projected relative efficiency positive aspects in opposition to present cellular GeForce GTX GPUs. The GeForce RTX 2070 is proven to be roughly 20 % sooner than the GeForce GTX 1070 when working at inventory and as much as 40 % sooner when overclocked. The overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 is proven to be over 60 % sooner.
This information comes simply days after an obvious leak of an upcoming GeForce MX 250 GPU for entry-level gaming or general-purpose laptops with discrete GPUs. The GeForce MX250 title popped up in a spec sheet for an upcoming HP enterprise laptop computer, which was shared on Twitter.
Subsequent, we now have stories of a desktop GeForce RTX 2060. Whereas maybe inevitable that Nvidia will launch such a product, the supply of the leak is a purported registration submitting by Gigabyte with the Eurasian Financial Fee. What’s most stunning is that Gigabyte has apparently developed as many as 39 graphics card SKUs. Plainly there could possibly be variations in retail with 3GB, 4GB and 6GB of RAM, and every variant might use both GDDR6, GDDR5X, or GDDR5 RAM. This is able to be extremely uncommon and will result in mass confusion amongst patrons.
It is necessary to notice that these should not retail listings, so if the leak is real, Gigabyte might need been pre-empting Nvidia’s closing releases, and much fewer variants will really make it to market. Amongst the 39 variants could be some which are overclocked, some with two-fan and three-fan coolers, and a few compact variations for the Mini-ITX market.
Lastly, probably the most curious hearsay is that Nvidia might quickly promote mid-range variations of its Turing-based GPUs below the GeForce GTX model. These wouldn’t have the devoted to real-time ray tracing, however could possibly be the identical bodily GPUs with these blocks disabled fairly than a complete new design.
Previous to the launch of the GeForce RTX collection, it was broadly reported that there could be a GeForce GTX 11 collection. This might imply that Nvidia has deliberate a cut up product line for a while, or that the corporate is reacting to backlash over the excessive costs of its newest GPUs. No matter branding, the GPU that can ultimately exchange the GeForce GTX 1050 has popped up within the on-line Geekbench database.
If Nvidia is planning a giant blitz, its upcoming occasion at CES 2019 in early January could possibly be the venue for a number of of those bulletins. The GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti had been launched in late August 2018.
