Nvidia's next generation of Volta GPUs are expected to release in March 2018

 
Nvidia has already confirmed that their upcoming Volta series of gaming GPUs will not be released anytime soon, with many expecting Volta gaming series GPUs to release in the first half of 2018. 
 
Today some rumours have a emerged which states that Nvidia's gaming-oriented Volta series GPUs will release in March 2018, which makes a lot of sense given the current production schedule for GDDR6 memory from companies like SK Hynix. TSMC's new 12nm process, which Volta is based on, is also expected to be ready for large scale production by the end of the year, giving Nvidia another reason not to rush production, as higher yields and production rates are promised later.

Right now the only Volta-based GPU that Nvidia produces is their colossal Tesla V100, which is suffering from low-yields due to the maturity of the 12nm production node and the sheer size and scale of the Tesla V100. To put it into perspective the Tesla V100 has almost 2x the transistor count of the GTX 1080 Ti, with Nvidia stating that the GPU sits at the limits of manufacturability with today's process technology.

In short, Nvidia's Volta plans will ensure that their chosen memory type will be in greater supply and that TSMC's 12nm production node is more than ready for the mass production of Volta gaming GPUs. It is also worth remembering that Nvidia does not feel in any way rushed to release Volta, given the performance of their Pascal architecture when compared to competing hardware.

Gives me enough time to save up for the top end ROG card Quote

My birthday is March.. I think for once instead of buying another top end card you should gift it to me
Lol
But really I am thinking about Vega 56. Depending on how AIB cards are, if not impressed, I'll probably buy VoltaQuote

Hope they launch the 2080 Ti about that time instead of waiting months after that. Not likely but I can hope.Quote
