What is this that stands before me? A PCB in black with NVIDA branding

Stare deeply at the PCB picture, which purports to be of a GTX 1180.  The layout implies many things, such as the amount of GDDR we are likely to see; with 16GB seeming more likely than 8GB.  The golden SLI fingers have a different design from previous generations, which could signal the arrival of NVLink for consumers, a great feature for those who can buy their GPUs in pairs. The Inquirer has some more prognostications as well as links to even more leaked pictures.

"It's also visible from the leaked pictures that this model has different Scalable Link Interface (SLI) fingers than the firm's previous GPU cards. This could be a sign of Nvidia implementing NVLink for gaming GPUs, and because the cut out for the GPU is rather small, it could be a GV104 core chip."

A couple of rumours before your serving of B450 news and reviews

Two rumours are circulating today, one about Intel's upcoming year and one about NVIDIA and their new Turing GPUs.  There is a possibility that we will see the launch of the GTX 1180 on August 10th, one day before Gamescom 2018 kicks off from what The Inquirer has determined.  Over the coming months we will see more models arrive as well as the possible disappearance of the Ti brand as the rumour includes a GTX 1180+.

[H]ard|OCP picked up on a different story, the leak of Intel's coming processors and at least some specifications.  One definite piece of good news is that there is only one new chipset listed in the leak, the expected Z390 that indicates it is unlikely we will see yet another socket change.

"The launch will likely see the firm reveal the GTX 1180, GTX 1170, GTX 1160 and GTX 1180+. First out of the door, according to an email to partners leaked last week, will be the GTX 1180, which will replace the popular GTX 1080."

Lovely, NVIDIA is betting on BitCoin again

Hopefully this rumour is wrong as the price of the current high end cards from NVIDIA have finally stabilized at prices bearing some slight resemblance to their original MSRP.  If it is true, the next generation of GPUs from NVIDIA will be priced based on their assumption that cryptomining will be coming back in vogue and people will be willing to pay a higher price for the new cards.  We are still expecting to see these Turing cards arrive at the end of August, built on TSMC's 12nm process and introducing a new connector for VR headsets, which requires only a single cord.  

The Inquirer doesn't have any guesses on what the prices may be, they do have links to the source of the rumours though.

"Digitimes has some additional info, though, and claims to have heard from 'industry sources' that the incoming Turing-based GPUs will be "priced higher" than Nvidia's current GTX 1080/1070 graphics cards."
