NVIDIA Teases "Ultimate Gaming Experience" At GTC Taiwan

NVIDIA has posted a short (literally short) teaser, treating users to the promise of the "Ultimate Gaming Experience". This might mean something, such as the new, expected NVIDIA 11** series of graphics cards... Or it may mean something much less exciting, and have something to do with the 4K, HDR gaming experience that is supposed to be reaching gamers in a couple of weeks, at an expected cost of more kidneys than the average human has.

Officially, though, GTC 2018 Taiwan will revolve around artificial intelligence tech (what doesn't these days, really?) Translated, the teaser image reads something along the lines of "Utilizing GPU computing to explore the world's infinite possibilities - witness the power of artificial intelligence and the ultimate gaming experience in GTC Taiwan and Computex 2018." Remember, however, that marketing almost always has a way of blowing things out of proportion - don't hold your breath for a new graphics card series announcement.

I'm expecting something soon. They're getting plenty of GDDR6 from Samsung, they're not eating those chips!

I didn't quite catch it , how is this related to the Ultimate Gaming Experience ? GTC isn't about announcing consumer products and according to this , it clearly says this is about AI and whatnot.

What am I missing ?

I believe computing+ultimate gaming experience=RTX these days. But there's no consumer hardware that does that.

My GTX 1080Ti isn't quite yet. If there was anything exciting, I'd probably flip it even if there was no need. I like to fiddle with new stuff. But I don't think we'll see anything crazy. I wish there was though...

Either RTX or a re-launch of their BFG TVs? Or a GPU, but somehow I doubt this

'', at an expected cost of more kidneys than the average human has.'' I like that

have no fear mastercard is here !!! just slap that down and its yours just be sure you make the min . payment each month for the rest of your life , heck if you don't its still yours anyway . maybe they start offering easy terms like 99$ down 99$ a month for 99 years . @ 26% interest. through the bank of NVidia llc...

but nVidia just restock their 10 series GPUs with normal price. if they announce new gen GPU, wouldn't the restock 10 series become obsolete and wasted?

Nah they are already selling out, it's not like there is anything better on the market, especially with AMD GPUs still overpriced due to those pesky miners.

I find it curious that techpowerup's "leak" (cough, lol, doh) mentions "12nm", while AMD promises 7nm in Q1 19.

Company: "We will have vastly superior product on the market in a couple of months!"
Consumers: "Yeah, cool, but let us continue buying old gen stuff at release date MSRP, for some reason".

Makes sense.

I'm guessing there's something in your mind that prevents a company that launches 12nm products in 2018 from launching 7nm products in 2019.
Also, what source are you talking about, I haven't found that 12nm reference.

Ehm... not sure what you are trying to prove here? Its obvious they are, always have been, and the out of stock GPUs today are just more proof of that. What does the Osborne Effect have to do with any of this?!

The only one who doesn't seem to get it, is you...

When your argument is that the announcement of a new GPU prevents the sale of the old GPU, I would think the old GPU being out of stock is a pretty solid counter-argument.

Are you playing obtuse?
I can't imagine someone posting on a tech site not being aware of the effect cryptomining has on the GPU market.

As usual, it's you who goes to lengths painting Nvidia in dark colors.

You brought the Osborne effect into discussion. That says when a new product is announced, the old one tends to catch dust on the shelves. But now you're telling me cryptomining has depleted the supply anyway. So how does the Osborne effect apply in this case? How does the Osborne effect apply in any case when the old product is out of stock?

Yes, freaking seriously - the Green Hate is starting to destroy your brain cells it so seems - you're completely missing reality. First its stupid consumers, then its an Osborne Effect that does not even remotely apply to your argument, then suddenly its 'mining'... make up your mind bro.
