- The wait is over boys and girls, this is the moment we had been waiting for. The invites exist and have been set for Gamescom 2018 which starts on August 2 – a Tuesday. This corresponds with the information I revealed a couple of days back perfectly and should be the time we will see the first glimpse of NV’s brand new GeForce graphics cards, which according to Lenovo will be called the GTX 11 series – so the lineup becomes the GeForce GTX 1180 and GeForce GTX 1170 respectively.
There is not much revealed on the invite and on face value its simply an event to get some hands-on gaming experience but we all know this isn’t how exclusive, press-only, fully sponsored trips to another continent work. While we will almost certainly be seeing only the FE versions at this event, we don’t have any idea of how soon we can expect the custom versions to arrive. Depending on what process the cards are at, it could be anything from a couple of weeks to a month(s) or more.
The architecture will most probably be christened the Turing architecture since NVIDIA’s official account has been paying homage to the great computing pioneer almost religiously for the past couple of weeks and also ties in with the leaks and rumors that we had been hearing. NVIDIA also has a passion for cryptographic puzzles (anyone remember the Geforce 10 launch mystery puzzle?) and would be the most likely candidate for any new and powerful mainstream GPU.
