GeForce GTX 1180 Appears in TechPowerUp GPU Database

There has been much speculation about the next series of graphics cards from NVIDIA for quite some time, and now one of them seems to have appeared in the TechPowerUp GPU database, along with some specifications. It is the GeForce GTX 1180 now listed, and according to TPU it uses a GV104 GPU, which means it is derived from the Volta architecture, and was manufactured on a 12 nm process. While the step from the 16 nm process of the current Pascal-based GPUs found in the GTX 1000 series to 12 nm is not as sizeable as going from 28 nm to 16 nm (the leap from Maxwell, the GTX 900 series to Pascal), this will likely still result in improved performance and/or efficiency. The GPU has 3584 shading units, 224 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and an SM count of 28. The GPU is matched with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory through a 256 bit memory bus, so we have a bandwidth of 384 GB/s.

It is worth noting this would be an engineering sample, so some of the specifications may change, including the clock speeds. According to the database the base clock is 1405 MHz with a boost clock of 1582 MHz. The graphics card has 1 HDMI and 3 DisplayPort outputs and will use one 6 pin and one 8 pin PCIe power connector. While that would add up to a potential 300 W of power (the PCIe slot specification allows it to provide 75 W, as does the 6 pin connector, and the 8 pin specification is for 150 W) the TDP is only 200 W. This should provide plenty of room for overclocking, and for comparison the GTX 1080 has a TDP of 180 W, which is 20 W lower with only a single 8 pin connector is limited to 225 W of power, without going past the slot and power connector specifications (which many modern, quality components can safely, as they are overdesigned).
