It looks like Nvidia won’t be launching new GPUs at GTC or GDC

Over the past number of weeks, there have been numerous reports that Nvidia has plans to launch new GPUs in the coming month, with many speculating that the company will be revealing new products at either GDC (Game Developers Conference) or GTC (GPU Technology Conference). 

Now a report from PCGAMESN has thrown a spanner into the works, stating that they have been in contact with Nvidia and that the company has confirmed that they will not be launching any new GPUs at either event next month, shattering hopes that there will soon be a new consumer GPU launch. 

It is likely that the most that consumers will see from Nvidia is an updated GPU roadmap, offering a small glimpse into the future instead of a new GPU generation. As usual, Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference will continue to focus on AI, self-driving cards and deep learning.

While some gamers are crying out for new GPU silicon, it is understandable why Nvidia would choose not to launch a new product in today’s market, whether it is waiting for GDDR6 to become more readily available in large quantities or to ride out today’s cryptocurrency mining craze with Pascal for a little longer. 

Nvidia launched their Pascal GTX 1080 Ti back in GDC 2017, the latest new silicon to be introduced to Nvidia’s consumer GPU lineup. We’re not counting the GTX 1070 Ti as it uses the same GP104 chip that is used in the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, both of which launched almost two years ago. 

You can join the discussion on Nvidia’s future GPU plans on the OC3D Forums.
