Well, it’s finally happening folks. Nvidia will be hosting a “special event” at 9am (Malaysian time) tomorrow. Sources are claiming that the event will see the unveiling of consumer-grade Pascal-based graphics cards at last. If so, then consumers should expect to see at least two new GeForce cards: the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 (if they were to be named that way).
Then again, judging by the photo posted on Nvidia’s Facebook page, there is no mention of what the event will be about. Knowing this, some might think that it could just be another, say, Drive PX 2-like announcement this time round. However, when one looks closely, on the bottom right of the image, a distinctive “GeForce GTX” branding was added. It seems very unlikely that Nvidia will be releasing a Drive PX super computer under the GeForce GTX branding.
Another detail that shouldn’t be missed is the “Order Of 10” countdown timer, which is said to be an alleged Pascal launch tease by Nvidia. Interestingly, the timer will end roughly at about 3.45am tomorrow morning, not 9am. According to VideoCardz, the timer was probably made to end early to make way for teasers and info about Pascal-based graphics cards before the actual event itself.
For those that are interested in witnessing the unveiling of consumer-grade Pascal graphics cards may want to tune in to Nvidia’s live stream tomorrow. The link to the stream can be found here. Fingers crossed it’s not another super computer eh?
