- NVIDIA is all set to unveil its next-gen GPUs based on Ampere in a GeForce Special Event.
- The launch event is slated for 9am PT on September 1, with NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang delivering the keynote.
- If the latest leaks are any indication, we should see four models in the GeForce RTX 3000 series.
After months of leaks, we now have an official launch date for NVIDIA's next-gen GPUs. The brand tweeted out a teaser on its GeForce page yesterday indicating an August 31 launch, and NVIDIA has now confirmed that it will unveil its next-gen Ampere-based GPUs on September 1.
The GeForce RTX 30 series will make its debut in a GeForce Special Event that will be helmed by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang. NVIDIA didn't share any details on the cards themselves, but if recent leaks are any indication, we'll likely see four models in the initial GeForce RTX 30 series: the RTX 3090, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070.
According to TweakTown, NVIDIA's partners will launch their own offerings at the same time as the Founders Edition cards, which hasn't been the case with the RTX 20 series. That means you'll be able to pick up cards from the likes of ASUS, MSI, Zotac, and others at the same time as NVIDIA's own Founders Edition lineup.
The GeForce RTX 30 series is set to deliver huge performance gains over current RTX 20 cards, and with NVIDIA already dominating our best graphics card picks, it will be interesting to see just what sort of real-world gains the upcoming cards will offer. With AMD also set to unveil its RDNA2 architecture later this year, the next few months will be exciting for PC hardware enthusiasts.
