NVIDIA announced today that they will have a significant presence at the upcoming Gamescom show in Germany. Gamescom Goods August 21st and runs through August 25th and has long been a showcase for future games and technology. NVIDIA's press release specifically mentions hands-on demos of upcoming games, stage presentations from game developers, and "some spectacular surprises." While what these surprises may be, it's not yet officially known, the recent buzzen points from the tech hardware rumor pill to nearby announcement of next-generation NVIDIA gaming GPUs.
These new GPUs are believed to be the codename Turing, undoubtedly a hint for Alan Turing, the British mathematician, widely regarded as father or theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. The Turing-based GPUs are the long-awaited follow-up to the cards released with the Pascal architecture (GTX 1080/1070/1060). While no concrete information is available, major gains in energy efficiency and the decision of new connectivity technology like HDMI 2.1 and VirtualLink are expected to come from these new parts.
PC players who have been waiting for next-generation games GPU release to make a purchase would be wise to start making money now.
