There’s been some speculation going around now that NVIDIA has supposedly sent out invitations to their show at Gamescom in Koln Germany this year.
Rumor has it that NVIDIA is going to be making some big announcements at Gamescom, though no one’s sure what those announcements are going to be. According to Videocardz, the invitations don’t mention anything in the way of graphics cards, but instead, puts a focus on games. Now, it might be possible that we may see the announcement of NVIDIA’s next line of graphics cards, potentially the GeForce 1100 series that will include GDDR6 RAM, but that seems a little unlikely.
This kind of announcement would make sense usually, however, since the many Bitcoin crashes that have been going on lately, the demand for graphics cards have gone down quite a bit and prices are expected to and are already falling. NVIDIA even canceled an event they had planned for Hot Chips where they were going to present GPU technology, they ended up canceling that and handing over their slot to Intel. Besides that, they only sign of the new hardware going around has been that picture of a test board holding GDDR6 RAM that surfaced on Reddit.
Whatever NVIDIA’s got going on, they don’t want anything leaking out, if that wasn’t made entirely evident already since that hubbub came up since some journalists refused to sign the five-year non-disclosure agreement a few weeks ago. With all that’s happening recently, we might just see some HDR announcements. But there is still some light peeking through the branches. Who knows, we could be getting the 1170 and 1180 soon.
