NVIDIA GeForce are teasing something for August 31, likely RTX 3000

By - | Views: 13,634

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.

Been waiting too long for something that can do a decent job at 4k

Intel have been working on Xe for quite a while now. Actual real-world performance, and how much it's directed towards gaming rather than machine learning, are still to be determined, of course.

Quoting: Comandante ÑoñardoThey should calm down and release new GPUs every three years and not every year.
I'll freely admit that I find AMD's products and release schedule confusing, but on the Nvidia side:
Fermi 2010
Kepler 2012
Maxwell 2014
Pascal 2016
Turing 2018
Consumer Ampere? 2020

You don't have to buy a new card every generation if you don't want to.

If you skip a generation or two, you'll get larger performance boost compared to what you had before. Not every generation is going to double your FPS, but if you wait as long as I have, that is likely going to happen. I still have GTX 970...

I still have a GTX 780.

And most importantly Linus Torvalds will be the overlord of the world. In addition to that, Linux Market share will be 99% in computers!Then NVIDIA open up their drivers.
I think that would require good scientists going back in time. Well actually, I dunno if Linus would be that great an overlord of the world, but the rest of that.

My 2080 (non-Ti) does pretty well, no complaints. Though I did notice when going from 4k@60hz to 2560x1440@144hz there was a huge boost in speed nust on the desktop (Gnome). Everything seemed smoother. I also found out that is why Campaign Cartographer was a slug. It is most certainly not suited to 4k resolutions.
