Nvidia confirmed that it will hold an event dedicated to the GeForce line during CES 2021. Called “GeForce RTX: Game On“, the event, which will continue in digital format as a way to avoid face-to-face crowds due to the Covid 19 pandemic. It will be presented by GeForce division vice president Jeff Fisher and promises to “reveal the latest innovations in gaming and graphics.
The online event will also be used to present the awaited Nvidia GeForce RTX 3000 family and will be open to everyone which is scheduled for January 12.
Unfortunately, no more specific details about what will be discussed have been revealed. However, as we know, several rumors already indicated a major launch of Nvidia for January, which ended up being basically confirmed with today’s announcement.
For a long time, it was believed that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, developed to counter the advances of the Radeon RX 6000 line, would be revealed in January, but information released this week already points to an announcement in February.
Thus, the bet is on the GeForce RTX 3060, a more modest version of the recently launched 3060 Ti that may end up taking the throne of the favorite among the most affordable solutions. Leaked data indicates that the RTX 3060 should feature the new GA106 GPU, bringing 3,840 CUDA cores and 6GB and 12GB VRD GDDR6 options.
Following the logic of the RTX 3000 line, we can expect a level of performance that lies between the RTX 2070 SUPER and the RTX 2080. So, go and add the date to your calendar for the GeForce RTX: Game On.
