Highly Expected: We are getting closer to the day when Nvidia presents its next-generation graphics card, probably on its Gamescom press adventure on August 20th. That means rumors, leaks and speculation come thick and fast. The latter involves the version of Founders Edition of the GTX 2080 (or 1180, whatever it may be called), claiming it should be shipped with a dual fan cooling system.
If the rumor, which comes from BenchLife, turns out to be true, it will mark the first time that one of Nvidia's Founders cards has used a dual-fan design and may indicate that the next-generation GPU requires a better cooling solution than its predecessors.
In other related news, the graphics card manufacturer Galax has issued a statement through a company representative saying that we want to see Nvidia's new card by September ̵
As with all rumors, especially those who surround 2080/1180, take these with a dose of salt, although it's safe to assume that the upcoming graphics cards will have some pretty amazing performance compared to the older Pascal-based GPUs.
Last week saw the alleged PCB images of the 2080/1180 leak on the web. They suggest that Nvidia want to do away with SLI in favor of an NVLink, found in corporate cards like Quadro GV100, offering higher bandwidth than SLI or PCIe for short-to-short communication. The GPU can also come with a USB Type C port.
Even though we do not have much more time to wait for the card's official disclosure, expect more rumors to arrive before Nvidia reveals everything.
