After our last article regarding the #UltimateCountdown tweet on the NVIDIA GeForce official twitter account with an extremely vague and short teaser, we speculated that Nvidia was going to announce it's  next generation of consumer Graphics Cards under the Ampere architecture on August 31st, but later that day NVIDIA in its Official Press Release announced a "Special Event Featuring CEO Jensen Huang" on September 1st.

NVIDIA on it's official website stated that,

NVIDIA will broadcast a GeForce special event, featuring an address by founder and CEO Jensen Huang on Sept. 1, at 9AM Pacific time. During the event, Huang will highlight the company's latest innovations in gaming and graphics. 


Obviously considering the world events it is going to be a Virtual event. To catch this event live you can tune in to this page at 9.30PM IST (Indian Standard Time) or 12PM EST. You can download the official Press Release from Nvidia here.


On another page, NVIDIA started a countdown stating, "The Ultimate Countdown. 21days. 21 years. Before we enter the future, join us to celebrate the biggest breakthroughs in PC gaming since 1999. And what comes next. #UltimateCountdown". The 'what comes next' part is what is getting me and a lot of other PC gaming enthusiasts excited indicating that there will at least some kind of announcement if not a release of the next generation of upcoming graphics cards.

In one other article that NVIDIA published they stated that on September 1st, we usher in a new era with a special event broadcast event featuring NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang. All of these statements are pointing towards a possible announcement of the gen graphics from the company.

In more news about NVIDIA and its next generation of graphics cards NVIDIA board partners have already confirmed to TweakTown that custom designs from AIBs will be available at launch or atleast a few days after launch compared to previous generations where NVIDIA launched its Founders Edition cards first and then the AIBs lagged a couple weeks or even couple months and then came out with much powerful and very well optimized cards with beefy and silent coolers. This news, if true, is huge as we consumers don't have to wait for AIB cards and do not have to settle with the Founders edition models.


Given all the 21s, and the company's 21st anniversary and the unconfirmed naming scheme of the next gen graphics cards people from other media outlets and on social media are also speculating that these cards might be named as RTX 2100 series instead on RTX 3000 series which is meant to replace the RTX 2000 series of graphics cards. But Videocardz.com, at around this time last month shared a photo from ASUS regarding the design of the ASUS ROG Strix RTX 3080 Ti basically confirming that the next gen graphics will be called RTX 3000 series. During these times of uncertainty everything has to be taken with a huge grain of salt.
