Nvidia’s registrations point to three new GeForce GPUs




Nvidia’s registrations to the European Economic Community seem to point to the arrival of three new GeForce video cards. A picture of a pcb with model number PG180 already appeared; the registrations indicate the arrival of variants PG160 and PG150.

The GeForce name is not mentioned in the registrations at the EEC , but according to VideoCardz is the number 699 for consumer products, making it plausible that these are GeForce video cards. Registrations have also been done with the number 900, which would involve Quadro or Tesla video cards.

Nvidia has submitted a long list of model numbers, but with GeForce products these can be divided into three segments: 1G150, 1G160 and 1G180. According to VideoCardz, this corresponds to the model numbers of the pcb of the video cards. At the beginning of this month , photos of the PG180-pcb appeared, presumably for the GTX 1080 successor.

The registrations thus seem to point to the arrival of more PCBs, which presumably use a different GPU. It seems obvious that the model numbers of the PCBs are the same as those of the video cards and that there is a GTX 1050 and GTX 1060 successor in the list, but according to VideoCardz the model numbers have nothing to do with the numbering of video cards.

The fact that there are so many different registrations per model number has to do with small differences, such as the connections used, the mounting points for cooling and the color of the pcb, says VideoCardz.

It is expected that Nvidia will present new video cards at its Gamescom event on 20 August. How many maps Nvidia will present exactly is not clear yet. Often, only a top model is presented first and later cheaper models with a smaller gpu arrive. There is also uncertainty about the name; both GTX 1180 and GTX 2080 are mentioned.
