NVIDIA announces “GeForce Gaming Celebration” event for August 20; GTX 1180, GTX 1170, etc cards incoming?

NVIDIA has just announced the GeForce Gaming Celebration event set to take place on August 20 where the company will reveal ‘latest GeForce hardware’ and ‘spectacular surprises’.

The event takes place just a day before Gamescom so a good time for the media to get their hands on the hardware.

Below is the PR sent out:


Join us at our GeForce Gaming Celebration!

This event will be filled with awesome new PC games running on the latest GeForce hardware, cool stage presentations, food and drinks, and some spectacular surprises.

Festivities kick off at 6PM CET on Monday, Aug. 20. The venue is subject to capacity limits and entry will be first-come, first-served, so plan to get there early. Limit one ticket per person.

Location will be disclosed closer to the event. Stay tuned to your inbox and GeForce.com for further info!


The world’s biggest gaming expo, Gamescom 2018, runs August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany. And GeForce will loom large there — at our Gamescom booth, Hall 10.1, Booth E-072; at our partners’ booths, powering the latest PC games; and at our own off-site GeForce Gaming Celebration that starts the day before.

The event will be loaded with new, exclusive, hands-on demos of the hottest upcoming games, stage presentations from the world’s biggest game developers, and some spectacular surprises.

To join in, simply head here, register, and turn up for the start of the festivities on Monday, Aug. 20. Doors open at 5.30pm CET and the fun starts at 6pm. There’s limited space, so make sure you arrive early. Can’t make it in person? Don’t worry, it will be livestreamed.

If you somehow choose to miss Monday’s epic event, the festivities continue on Tuesday at 10am, and run clear through to 5pm. Again, space is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure you and your clan members turn up early to go hands-on with the spectacular PC-powered demos of the most-anticipated, yet-to-be-released games.

The new GTX series supposedly numbered the 1100 series has been rumored for a while now, but it seems they’re finally going to be made official. Expect to see the reveal of the GTX 1080 and 1070 at least at the event.

Any guesses for the ‘spectacular surprise’ though? I’m betting on a new Tegra.

Time to sell of that GTX 1080Ti boys?
