NVIDIA iepazīstina ar AIC partneriem par nākamā paaudzes GeForce sēriju


NVIDIA has reportedly briefed its add-in card (AIC) partners about its upcoming GeForce product family, codenamed 'Turing,' and bearing a commercial nomenclature of either GeForce 11-series, or GeForce 20-series. This sets in motion a 2-3 month long process of rolling out new graphics cards by board partners, beginning with reference-design 'Founders Edition' SKUs, followed by custom-design SKUs. Sources tell Tom's Hardware Germany that AIC partners have began training product development teams. NVIDIA has also released a BoM (bill of materials) to its partners, so aside from the ASIC itself, they could begin the process of sourcing other components for their custom-design products (such as coolers, memory chips, VRM components, connectors, etc.).

BoM arī norāda laika grafiku paredzamajam laika apmēram, kas nepieciešams katram no galvenajiem produkta attīstības posmiem, novedot pie masveida ražošanas. Tas paredz 11–12 nedēļas (2–3 mēnešus), kas ved uz masveida ražošanu un nosūtīšanu, un tas varētu sākt produktu laišanu tirgū kādu laiku augustā (pieņemot, ka BoM kādu laiku tika izlaists maijā – jūnijā). Atsevišķa tabula sniedz arī aizraujošu ieskatu dažādos pielāgotā dizaina NVIDIA grafiskās kartes attīstības posmos.
