Gamescom 2018, the world’s biggest gaming expo, will take place next month in Cologne, Germany. NVIDIA is planning to host an event during Gamescom 2018. The company says that “GeForce will loom large” at the expo and NVIDIA will have its own booth there in addition to its off-site GeForce Gaming Celebration which starts on August 20th.
NVIDIA will showcase new, exclusive, hands-on demos of popular upcoming games during its event. It also promises some “spectacular surprises” and not much is known about that at this point in time.
There’s a possibility that the company will unveil a new GPU at the event. It had previously lined up a talk titled “NVIDIA’s Next Generation Mainstream GPU” at Hot Chips on August 20th which is the same day as its now official GeForce event.
If previous reports are an indication, the company may unveil its new GeForce GTX 1180 GPU which will be based on the Turing architecture. Images of an alleged NVIDIA engineering sample of the new GPU were leaked online last month with the new GDDR6 memory.
The GeForce GTX 1180 is said to tout 3,584 CUDA cores with a clock speed between 1.6 and 1.8 GHz in addition to up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory. NVIDIA’s GeForce event is scheduled for 1 PM ET on August 20th. More information about this new GPU will likely be revealed at the event.
