Nvidia: No Volta-based Geforces in 2017

Friday, August 18th, 2017 | Gadgets

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang has expressed his opinion on future Geforce graphics cards for players in the second quarter of 2017. "On the subject of Volta for gamers, we have not yet announced", and further: "For the coming Christmas business Pascal is unbeatable."

Huang further pointed out that Nvidia is working on new devices and technologies for players. He recommends for titles like Call of Duty WW2 or Destiny 2 a little surprising a Pascal-based graphics card. The first models – the Geforce GTX 1080 and the Geforce GTX 1070 – were released in the spring of 2016 and are still up-to-date. In the meantime Nvidia has updated the portfolio with the GeForce GT 1030, the Geforce GTX 1050 (Ti), the Geforce GTX 1060, the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti and the Titan XP.

Deep learning in focus
Volta-based maps are only two, which are the same model in different form factors: the Tesla P100 as PCIe and as SXM2 variant. The 815 mm² GV100 chip with its 32 GB HBM2 memory is not intended for gamers, but because of its tensor cores is designed primarily for artificial intelligence.
AMD recently released the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the Radeon RX Vega 56. The cards deliver a performance above the GTX 1080 respectively the GTX 1070 and cost theoretically less. The Vega 56 will appear at the end of August 2017, the Vega 64 is currently only available for more than 600 instead of the official price of 500 euros – more expensive than the hardly slower GTX 1080.
