While EA will be using this Friday to hold the public announcement of Battlefield 5, Nvidia will be holding a more secretive event. Last week, we heard that Nvidia was reportedly planning an ‘Editor’s Day’ for this week, at which the company would show off its GTX 980 and GTX 970 replacements to the press and now it looks like that event will be taking place on the 6th of May.
While EA’s Battlefield event is rumoured to be taking place on the same day as EA’s Battlefield announcement, there is no definitive link between the two events.
According to a report from VRWorld, this end of week event will see the paper launch of the GP104 Pascal GPU, which will be used on the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and perhaps even a GTX 1060 Ti, which we heard whispers about over the weekend.
We don’t have an exact date for the public reveal of these new GPUs from Nvidia but it is estimated to happen before the end of May. Then, retail availability will follow on a bit later.
KitGuru Says: Nvidia’s new Pascal GPUs are reportedly set to arrive pretty soon. Are any of you planning on upgrading? Even if you don’t make the jump to the latest generation, the release of new cards will likely bring price drops on the current Maxwell line-up.
