TSMC Anticipates Record Q4 2018 Revenue Thanks to GeForce GTX 11 Series Turing GPUs

Written by Jon Sutton on Thu, Jul 19, 2018 10:17 AM

TSMC is expecting record revenues and growth in Q4 2018 thanks to the demand for next-generation graphics processors from Nvidia. The foundry partner is currently busy manufacturing the GPUs for what is expected to be the GeForce GTX 11 series ‘Turing’ graphics cards, with a launch rumoured in the next 6 to 8 weeks.

TSMC's revenues are expected to increase at a moderate pace sequentially in the third quarter before reaching an all-time high in the fourth quarter,” said sources close to DigiTimes. “Shipments for Nvidia's new-generation GPUs will play another driver of TSMC's revenue growth in the fourth quarter.”

Gamers have been waiting well over two years for a new generation of graphics cards from Nvidia, ever since the GeForce GTX 10 series debuted in May 2016 with the GeForce GTX 1080. The GeForce GTX 1170 and GeForce GTX 1180 are looking likely to launch in August with full availability in September 2018.

The anticipation for a new crop of graphics cards is expected to drive the record revenue growth for TSMC heading into Q4 2018, offsetting the recent slump that has affected the worldwide GPU market, driven by a drop in demand from cryptocurrency miners.

when is the 1050 3gb edition coming out? I was planning on getting the 4 gb but the mining craze has skyrocketed the price in Pakistan (24000pkr). So I was planning to buy a GTX 960 or the gtx 1050 3gb announced before. will there be a 1150 in the series? should I wait for that?

Yeah we're same with skipping a generation. But only that now is my due time to buy another. Then 12 series is where I skip next. ^_^

I think Nvidia isn't releasing their GPUs, because AMD is silent about theirs and have not confirmed any plans for GPUs this year, only rumors and leaks so far. So both of them hurry up and bring new GPUs out... I haven't updated in three freaking years and I need a new GPU... -_-

with the release of the new gen & the roomer-ed pile of GPU stock NVIDIA is sitting on, the best deal would be to look for a cheap 1070 (or even TI), like something below 400 Eu, that would be worth it

I was actually thinking of getting a 980 ti for around $200-$300 on ebay seems like a good deal even if it's old, it runs similar to a 1070. Then again the 1070 is around $300-$500 on ebay.

the thing is that the gtx 1070 is not worth 400 euro... -_-
even in 2017 it wasn't really worth 400 euro, even though it was 400 euro(for the non-Founders Edition price which was rare but available before the miners bought them literally all) and I was about to buy it, now 2x years+ later it's just not worth it. Nvidia is quite overpriced in my country on top of the taxes, but I had the money and AMD had nothing with as good performance and their GPUs had just started rising in price.

Knowing NVIDIA, I just don't think the next stuff (GTX 11XX) would show much improvement over the previous gen & will be overpriced, so a very very very good deal of a GTX 1070 (ti preferably) would be worth it (possibly sub-400 Euro)

nah, I will wait until I can get gtx 1080 performance at sub 300 euro, which shouldn't be hard at all at 7nm...


Keep in mind that the gtx 1080 in 2016 should have costed 300 euro max, not 700...

We're so close now that I would wait tbh, an 1160 will hopefully be much more affordable than a 1070
