NVIDIA announces GeForce event on 1 September with RTX 3080 likely to be announced

NVIDIA announces GeForce event on 1 September with RTX 3080 likely to be announced

NVIDIA has announced a GeForce event for 1st September, with the graphics card maker streaming it live on their website at 9AM PT / 12PM ET. The email teaser that we received also revealed that CEO and Founder Jensen Huang "will highlight the company’s latest innovations in gaming and graphics.”

If that isn't going to be the next generation of GPU, specifically the much rumoured RTX 3000-series of graphics cards, then it had better be one darn good surprise.

The new RTX cards will be based on the company's Ampere GPU architecture, which was unveiled way back in May. The first Ampere-based cards, however, were built for enterprise computing - cloud, artificial intelligence, data analytics, etc. The 1st September event looks very likely to be Ampere's grand entrance into the PC gaming space.

Cross your fingers, PC master race.
