Even though the 2021 edition of CES will be an entirely virtual affair due to the ongoing coronoavirus pandemic, a number of major companies have still been lining up to schedule presentations as part or around the event. This has included Intel, AMD, and now NVIDIA, who today is announcing an event for January 12th.

Dubbed “GeForce RTX: Game On”, the broadcasted event will be presented by Jeff Fisher, NVIDIA’s Senior VP for GeForce. NVIDIA has set aside an hour for their CES-adjacent presentation, which will kick off at 9am Pacific on January 12th, 2021.

Today’s reveal is little more than a hold the date teaser, with NVIDIA promising to “unveil the latest innovations in gaming and graphics.” And while the company isn’t offering any more details than that, observationally we’ve seen that over the last several years NVIDIA has frequently used CES to announce new products and technologies. This goes particularly for laptop products, as CES has increasingly transformed into a laptop showcase for the PC OEMs. Fittingly, as NVIDIA continues its Ampere GPU release cadence with smaller and less power-hungry parts, the next chip expected to be released (GA106?) should be a good candidate for use in laptops.

One way or another, we’ll find out for sure next month with NVIDIA’s presentation. So stay tuned.

    I assume the announcement of a new part will coincide with the availability of the old one. IE, supply catches up so they need a better model to stoke demand again.

    No need for rumors, a "X-1 Ti follows the top-end X model proving the same or better performance for less money" cycle occurs every single generation and has for pretty much a decade now, with the better-and-cheaper card usually arriving 6 months after generation launch. Any faux-shock at such an expected turn of events convinces nobody.

    Until I can actually read a review of an RTX 3080, I don't want to hear about anything else.

    ...or any RTX 3xxx card

    Well, you know, the fires in California that haven't been going on all fall and winter are the cause.

    Are they going to announce the actual release date for the 3080 ?

    Normally the supply issues would be a big deal, but PS5/XBOX etc are all encountering issues. There's a pandemic going on, and these sorts of things are at the back of the list of essential items to produce with a lockdown....

    So I think its ok to cut the big boys some slack this time.

    Tell that to the shareholders of these companies.

    Pandemic according to WHO. WHO changed "pandemic" definition 2009, removing severity and mortality as factors. With the current definition yearly flu can be classified as pandemic. With the old definition corona would not be classified as pandemic.

    Go on CDC website and look at total deaths from all causes. 2018 full year was higher than 2020 till and including 17.12. There is NO pandemic.

    John Hopkins evaluated mortality in 2020, there is blatant misclassification of causes:
    "...When Briand looked at the 2020 data during that seasonal period, COVID-19-related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual since heart disease has always prevailed as the leading cause of deaths. However, when taking a closer look at the death numbers, she noted something strange. As Briand compared the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to 2018, she noticed that instead of the expected drastic increase across all causes, there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising, as seen in the graph below, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes. This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, as depicted in the table below, the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19... "

    CBS News article from November 13: "Suicide claimed more Japanese lives in October than 10 months of COVID."

    These are NOT conspiracy theorists, these are official sources, mate.
    If you only read headlines and watch TV for information, and too lazy to dig just a bit further, well...

    Would you kindly either stop spreading disinformation or shut the fuck up entirely. Your choice.
