Nvidia Volta Reportedly Delayed until 2018

Nvidia Dual GPU card coming soon?

 

Reports suggest that Nvidia will soon be launching an ultra powerful dual GPU using either dual Titan X or dual GTX 980Ti cores, creating Nvidia’s fastest GPU to date. 

Right now we do not know if this GPU will be a Titan branded GPU like Nvidia’s last Dual GPU card the Titan Z, but it seems that last week at a secret event in New York this upcoming powerhouse of a GPU was shown to invited attendees. This suggests that this GPU is ready or a few weeks away from shipping, so it is expected that an official announcement is coming soon.

Right now the race is on between AMD and Nvidia to see who can launch this generation dual GPU graphics card first, with AMD’s R9 Fury X2 slated for a release in Fall 2015, so both these GPU will likely be coming out at around the same time.  

Last Generation Nvidia’s Titan Z was pretty much ignored by gamers as it featured two underclocked GPU cores and had an obscenely high price tag of $3000. This made this GPU simply non-competitive with AMD’s R9 295X2 in both performance terms and in price to performance terms. 

Hopefully this generation Nvidia will be able to keep the GPUs clocks high and the thermals under control thanks to their ultra efficient Maxwell architecture, but right now it remains to be seen.

It is expected that Nvidia have been spending some time binning their GM200 chips for low power usage for this GPU, in a similar way that they were binning their GTX 980 GM204 chips for Mobile use. Hopefully this should mean that Nvidia will be able to deliver a dual GPU this generation that will perform equally to of it’s single GPU counterparts in SLI.
