Ready for your next upgrade? NVIDIA think you might be and they're teasing what is most likely the GeForce RTX 3000 launch at the end of this month.
We don't know what they're actually going to call them, although they will be based on the already revealed Ampere architecture announced back in May. It's probably safe to say RTX 3000 for now, going by the last two generations being 1000 and 2000 but NVIDIA may go for something more fancy this time.
So what's going on? On Twitter, the official NVIDIA GeForce account tweeted the hashtag "UltimateCountdown" along with an 8 second teaser with some sort of sci-fi space explosion and the sound of a ticking clock. Additionally, their Twitter header image is now this:
Their first GeForce release was on August 31, 1999 - so it's pretty clear what's going to come on August 31, 2020 don't you think? Would be weird if it wasn't. Wccftech actually managed to grab some info from secret sources, that gave a roadmap of their planned releases and it seems they will launch in September.
We've put it on our calendar to keep an eye on.
Would be nice to be surprised....

Quoting: WorMzyI'm going to go out on a limb and guess they aren't going to announce that they're open sourcing their Linux driver and/or co-operating fully with the nouveau developers to make the open source driver feature complete.
I'd say it's very unlikely. But that would be great of course if they did. Their previous announcement about it didn't result in anything.

Quoting: ShmerlLooking forward to an upgrade, but not to Nvidia. Waiting for RDNA 2 cards from AMD.
Always waiting for the next card that is several years behind the times, right? Why are you even reading the nvidia related posts?

Nvidia's dropping Linux market share is surely not going to start rising until they'll open their drivers. So if you want to complain about something being behind the times, start with Nvidia ;)
Nouveau is there of course for them to support, but they didn't show any interest. Not only that, they still hinder it by not allowing it to work properly.

Anyway, wasn't Nvidia teasing just last week with an ARM acquisition? Could it be something on that front?

Both, Nvidia and AMd are using consumers as betatesters....
They should calm down and release new GPUs every three years and not every year.
