The rumors about NVIDIA's next-gen gaming GPUs are conflicting. Just a week ago I wrote about a rumor that NVIDIA would definitely not launch its GeForce GTX 2000 series at the GPU Technology Conference nor the GDC, but now another rumors tells something completely different.

TweakTown claims they heard from a well-placed industry source that NVIDIA plans to launch its GeForce GTX 2070 and GeForce GTX 2080 cards around the GPU Technology Conference, which is scheduled for March 26-29, 2018.
During NVIDIA's own GPU Technology Conference we should see the company launch the GeForce GTX 2080 and GTX 2070, although the naming scheme on them could change. We could see the GTX 1180 and GTX 1170, which wouldn't surprise me. Inside, the card will be running a refreshed Ampere architecture that should have even more power under the hood, as well as improved power efficiency over Pascal. NVIDIA should be launching their new cards in late-April or early-May. NVIDIA traditionally hosts an Editor's Day to unveil their new GeForce graphics cards, but my source said this is being shifted around to GTC 2018.
The GPU Technology Conference is mainly aimed at AI so perhaps we'll see the introduction of Turing. TweakTown also heard that NVIDIA will be talking about a completely new "post-Volta" architecture at GTC 2018.
