TweakTown was the main source of the news that NVIDIA would unveil a new GeForce GTX graphics card at GTC 2018, but my source was wrong - so I fully admit fault for that. Unfortunately it didn't happen, but that didn't stop us from hearing things from sources while I was there.

That's where we were told that NVIDIA would name their next-gen GPUs with the GTX 11 series family, and not the GTX 20 series like what was previously reported. But the bigger news is that we found out what's coming with NVIDIA's next-gen GPU roadmap and it makes sense.

NVIDIA's next-gen GPU architecture, according to our sources, will be Turing. Turing will be NVIDIA's new GPU architecture that will power the GTX 11 series, while the Ampere GPU architecture will succeed Turing sometime in the future.

And no, this isn't an April Fools Day post.
