#Nvidia has long-been rumored to be working on its #Volta-based architecture and the next set of GPUs that the firm plans on introducing this year. The firm, in an effort to give other big players such as AMD a tough competition this year, is expected to speed up the launch of its heavily speculated Volta-based #Graphics Processing Unit cards. If reports are true, then NVIDIA is expected to launch its said GPUs for the gaming sector in Q3 of 2017.

Like mentioned previously, NVIDIA wishes to compete hard with AMD. AMD and its Radeon Vega edition of graphics processing unit cards are headed strongly towards an inevitable win amongst the mass.

However, NVIDIA hasn't given up hope as yet. Through the use of its equally popular Volta-based set of GPUs, the firm is expected to defeat the former. It seems like the company wants to speed up its launching date. While some reports claim that the firm is planning on introducing its GPU cards for the gaming sector towards the end of this year, there are still other reports that claim that the company might postpone the launch until the beginning of next year at least. However, this information has not been confirmed by the firm as yet.

Recent launches by the company

Therefore, readers are advised to take the information with a grain of salt and nothing else.

Specs of the GPU

As for the specifications, the upcoming Volta-based set of GPU cards is expected to be built on TSMC's 12nm manufacturing process. The chip will be designed in such a way as to optimise the best out of the cards. On the storage front, NVIDIA is expected to make use of DRAM memory – also called HBM2 in order to provide the users will the best of what NVIDIA in terms of storage. The fans got a glimpse of the upcoming NVIDIA Volta-based GPU at the GPU Technology Conference that was held earlier this year. The company CEO, Jensen Huang showcased a small clip from the action-based called "Kingsalive: Final Fantasy XV," and suggested that the game was supported by NVIDIA's Volta-based GPUs. The result seemed impeccable, but at that time the company did not make any mention of the launch-date.
