According to the latest reports NVIDIA is preparing to refresh its Turning range of graphics cards this year with faster GDDR6 memory. When the GTX 20-Series from NVIDIA launched it shipped with 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory. The refresh will replace this memory with faster 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory.
AMD Navi graphics cards are set to release before the end of September and if you know NVIDIA you know they will have something prepared to counter AMD’s launch. So even a small refresh of just the memory on Turing cards would make sense for NVIDIA to do, at least to take some of the steam away from AMD’s Navi launch.
While upgrading the memory is a small change it would definitely be noticeable. Also from everything we’ve heard Navi is going to be geared more towards the mainstream and lower-end of the graphics card spectrum. So it would again make sense for NVIDIA to make their cards in that range more competitive with AMD’s upcoming Navi cards.
Could we just see NVIDIA push out new versions without any name changes or will we see “Ti” versions of some cards? I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
