The corporate can be livestreaming an elaborate media occasion it is holding in Austin, Texas. Whereas they are not saying a lot about what’s being introduced (solely that there shall be “tons” of stories), current rumors recommend that it will be the primary public unveiling of its new playing cards, the GTX 1080 and 1070. They’re stated to be based mostly on NVIDIA’s Pascal structure, which debuted on its P100 card final month.
The occasion additionally follows a mysterious advertising marketing campaign for one thing referred to as the “Order of 10,” whereby unmarked packages have been despatched to a number of know-how media people (together with me) main them to a web site full of puzzles. It did not take lengthy to determine that the entire thing was an NVIDIA joint, and that it was a not-so-thinly veiled reference of its upcoming 10-collection video playing cards. NVIDIA can also be internet hosting a serious media occasion in Austin this week, so it is sensible for the corporate to attempt to make an enormous information splash.
