I wasn't going to write up anything on the purported GeForce GTX 20 series from NVIDIA expected to be unveiled sometime in 2017, but 3DCenter has posted up some speculation on what we could expect from NVIDIA's hopefully generation leaping GTX 20 series of cards.
The new GeForce GTX 20 series would the 14nm FinFET refresh of the Pascal architecture, led by the GeForce GTX 2080 Ti which would use the refreshed GP102 core with 3384 CUDA cores, and GDDR5X on a 384-bit memory bus. Under that, we'll find the GTX 2080 which would replace the current GTX 1080, and then the GTX 2070 that could be the new price/performance champion.
NVIDIA could use the faster GDDR5X standard on the GeForce GTX 2070, with the faster VRAM exclusive to the current-gen GTX 1080 and Titan X. The use of GDDR5X on the more mid-range GeForce GTX 2070 could be a big win for the price/performance market once again.
Speculated specifications on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 20 series graphics cards:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti - GP102/3384/384-bit/GDDR5X
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 - GP104/2560/256-bit/GDDR5X
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 - GP104/2048/256-bit/GDDR5X
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 Ti 6GB - GP106/1280/192-bit/GDDR5
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 6GB - GP106/1024/192-bit/GDDR5
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2050 - GP107/768/128-bit/GDDR5
Speculated price on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 20 series graphics cards:
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 Ti - $799
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2080 - $499
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2070 - $349
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 Ti 6GB - $229
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060 6GB - $179
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2050 - $139
As for performance, we should expect a 10-30% gain over the performance of the GTX 10 series parts, which would really put NVIDIA into the lead by an even larger margin.
