More and more rumours are starting to surface regarding Nvidia’s next generation graphics cards. This time round, it seems that an alleged PCB of Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1180/2080 graphics card has been leaked. Judging from the leaked photos, it seems that the PCB in question is indeed the real deal; which means we may most likely see Nvidia launching its new graphics cards very soon.
The leaked photos of the Nvidia GTX 1180/2080 PCB was uploaded by a user in Baidu forums, and was later spotted by folks at VideoCardz. The tech site noted that the PCB comes with several “new” features that the current GTX 1080 lacks. For one, the leaked PCB has an 8+6-pin power connector – the GTX 1080 only had one 8-pin power connector.
There’s also the new SLI finger fitted onto the leaked PCB, which may mean that Nvidia is looking to implement its NVLink technology on the company’s upcoming gaming-oriented graphics cards. Besides that, the memory controller cutout on the PCB suggest that it may either be fitted with 8GB or 16GB of GGDR6 memory.
The Nvidia logo along with the “PG180” board number indicates that this is indeed a final board, which means it’s ready to go into production – if the alleged imaged are true, of course. It’s not known what GPU will be fitted onto this PCB, but sources expect the Volta-based GV104 processor to be powering the GTX 1180/2080.
Regardless, as with any other rumours regarding Nvidia’s upcoming, unannounced graphics cards, we do suggest our dear readers to take this one with a grain of salt; at least until Nvidia makes an official announcement.
