Nvidia is planning a huge GeForce event at Gamescom that is to be held next month. The new event that is to be happening on August 20, will feature some games that we haven’t been able to see before, hands-on demos, as well as some surprises. It’s important to add that the company initially scheduled a talk named “NVIDIA’s Next Generation Mainstream GPU” at Hot Chips on August 20, which is the same day as the recently announced GeForce event.

Some spectacular surprises could mean that Nvidia is planning to announce its new GeForce GTX 1180 GPU, that is based on Turing architecture at the upcoming event at Gamescom. It wouldn’t be surprising, given that the last Nvidia graphics cards were the GeForce 10 series that debuted back in 2016, two years ago.

Lenovo product manager mentioned the GTX 11 series at E3 last month. Moreover, Nvidia commemorated Alan Turing’s birthday on Twitter, who is known as the father of computers and programming, given his abstract invention called the Turing Machine. This commemorating could be associated with Nvidia building graphics card chips that are based on Turing’s architecture. The rumors don’t end yet. Last month, leaked images on hexus suggest that Nvidia is working on GeForce GTX 1180 chips, equipped with the innovative GDDR6 memory which has just started its mass production, according to anandtech.

When & where?

Nvidia encourages all journalists and gamers to join the event by registering here, so that they can take part in the event that will be held next month. The company announced: “Doors open at 5:30pm CET (1PM ET/11AM PT) and the fun starts at 6pm,” adding that those who want to participate need to register fast, because spots are limited.

It is also advised that everyone arrives early for the event. For those who can’t make it to the Nvidia GeForce event, the entire event will be livestreamed, so that everyone can get the hottest info regarding Nvidia’s future endeavors, new games, stage presentations, and hear some of the world’s greatest game developers. What are the spectacular surprises? We don’t know yet, but we hope that the new GPU series will be announced.

The company still hasn’t announced where the event will be held.

“We’re keeping this a secret for now, but we’ll give you all of the details once we get closer to the event. Stay tuned to your inbox and GeForce.com for further info!”
