According to sources in the upstream supply chain that have spoken to Tom’s Hardware on the condition of anonymity, NVIDIA’s add-in-board partners have already been informed of the company’s plans to introduce its next generation family of GeForce graphics cards for gamers this summer on the desktop, and in the fall for notebooks.

The company will begin sampling its partners with GPUs and GDDR6 memory beginning on June 15th and is set to debut its first Turing based 11 series graphics card, the GTX 1180 in July. The GTX 1170 will debut around the same time and is expected to be available on shelves a couple of weeks after its bigger brother.
