We're rounding the home stretch now, with Nvidia's next-generation, GTX 1180 card expected to debut at the very end of July. Anonymous sources also tell Tom's Hardware that Nvidia will use a new VR-friendly connector that will provide much higher refresh rates over a single connection than previously available.
Here's everything we know about Nvidia's upcoming GPU platform.
What kind of performance will GTX 1180 have?
According to TweakTown, the card will be capable of playing 4K games at 120Hz to 144Hz. This kind of speed makes sense, given that Nvidia is also pushing out a series of 144Hz, 4K gaming monitors this summer and it needs a card to power them.
What about VR support?
According to our sources, GTX 1180 will be capable of outputting up to 120Hz to VR headsets at high resolutions over a single cable. To support this high refresh rate, Nvidia will use a new connector.

How much will GTX 1180 cost?
TweakTown guestimates that there will be two variants, a less expensive $999 card and a $1,499 model with more RAM on board. Our sources say that pricing will be higher than the GTX 1080 Ti which carries a $699 MSRP. Nvidia's Titan Xp card, its current high-end consumer GPU, goes for $1,200.
