There have been several GeForce 1
The latest rumors come from Gamer Meld, a YouTube channel dedicated to game product news. Gamer Meld claims to have received an email from one of Nvidia's AIB Partners (AIB), saying that the release date for the GeForce 11 series has been pushed back. The delayed release starts at the end of August with the GeForce GTX 1180 and continues through the end of October. GeForce GTX 1180: 30th of August
GeForce GTX 1180: August 30th
There are some things to digest here. One is the mention of a GeForce GTX 1180+ SKU. It is not clear whether it is referring to a GeForce GTX 1180 Ti, or more likely a overclocked version of the GeForce GTX 1180.
Related to this mystery SKU, please note that these launch dates are for this specific management partner, the Identification Of these are not disclosed, and not necessarily, Nvidia's own Founders Edition cards. That said, if the email is genuine (it's a big "if" in part because emails are not usually emailed) and if the plans are not changed, we expect Nvidia's top management card partners to be on the same launch schedule .
It was previously rumored that Nvidia's next round of consumer GPUs would start this month. We do not know if it ever happened, even though it complies with what this assumed email requirements, which is an overview of today's generation GeForce 10 Series GPUs.
"Because we and other partners and manufacturers have an abundance of unfinished 10xx GPUs, Nvidia decided to delay the release of the 11xx cards," the e-mail state.
It is credible, although it also represents poor planning. After a shortage of Pascal cards for most of the year, it is interesting that there is a sudden build up of inventory just before the new items are to start.
Although the email is fake though, the GeForce 11 series is probably right around the corner. One thing we know is that Nvidia is scheduled to talk about their next-generation game GPUs at the Hot Chips conference in August. Whether the cards come before or after, we just have to wait and see.
