NVIDIA will unveil its Pascal GPUs during Computex 2016

The Swedish hardware web site SweClockers has announced that NVIDIA will unveil its next generation Pascal GPUs at the upcoming Computex 2016 exhibition, which is scheduled for May 31 – 4 June this year.

The new chips will be produced on 16 nm technology, courtesy of TSMC. They are expected to bring new levels of performance and even lower power consumption when compared to the very energy efficient Maxwell architecture. The main disadvantage of Pascal as of now lies in the production technology used – like we said the chips will be made on 16 nm, while AMD’s upcoming Polaris GPUs will be made on 14 nm tech process, which means the dies will be smaller, the chips will use less energy and will emit less heat.

Unfortunately the launch may remain just on paper at first with volume production of Pascal GPUs coming in Q3 2016 or even later since there are some serious production problems right now. Chances are NVIDIA will release mobile Pascal chips first with desktop versions coming sometime in H2 2016 but this remains to be seen. Until then AMD should have its Polaris GPUs on the market.
