Nvidia to launch their “Next Generation” GPU tomorrow

1 min read


Nvidia, the Taiwanese video GPU manufacturer is set to unveil its newest flagship card tomorrow, something it’s calling its “next generation, highest performance graphics card.” At 9AM tomorrow – 15:00 local time – the company’s set to unveil what many expect to be the rumoured Geforce GTX 590, a dual GPU GTX 580-based beast that’s supposed to pack 3Gbs of Ram and allow for single card 3D stereoscopic gaming.

According to the teaser video after the jump though, the company’s been working on this sucker for over two years, meaning it might be brand new hardware altogether.

I haven’t had much interest in PC gaming for the last few years, but the generational leap between PC’s and consoles is becoming increasingly evident. I’m just not sure I want to climb back on that perpetual upgrade merry-go-round again. One reason to stick with consoles though, with the gaming industry as it is today is that developers tend to focus on consoles and port games over to PC – making all this fancy hardware moot. And then there’s Battlefield 3. It looks absolutely fantastic, but PC gaming’s going to need more than a pretty shooter to draw me back.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
