Nvidia introduced its next-generation “Volta” graphics chip architecture in May, which first appeared in the GV100 chip firmly inserted into Nvidia’s Tesla V100 graphics card targeting data centers. While that specific GPU won’t appear in gaming products, Nvidia is expected to introduce new graphics cards for the gaming market, possibly codenamed “Turing,” during its GPU Technology Conference (GTC) starting March 26.

The Turing news may be confusing given rumors about “Ampere” surfacing last week. Ampere is supposedly locked and loaded to replace Nvidia’s current Pascal-based GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics cards starting with the GV104 chip serving as the new high-end solution. Cards based on this specific chip are expected to go retail on April 12, falling in line with reports that Nvidia will introduce a new family of gaming products at GTC 2018.

That said, the GV104 will supposedly power the GeForce GTX 2080 and 2070. Meanwhile, the GV102 could address the high-end enthusiast market such as the next Titan-branded card and GTX 2080 Ti. The GV106 could target mid-range solutions while the GV107 and GV108 serve budget-oriented customers. But that leaves two questions: What about Volta and what’s up with Turing?

Hurrah... although I'm not at all interested in getting one, it may mean that GPUs become reasonably priced again!

Indeed, GPU prices are silly at the moment.
