Earlier this morning we examined the latest rumours surrounding Nvidia’s upcoming next-gen GeForce GPU announcements. As luck would have it, just a few hours later, Nvidia officially began teasing its next big announcement, hinting at a late August unveiling.
At 2PM this afternoon, the NVIDIA GeForce twitter account published the following video:

The video and hashtag ‘Ultimate Countdown’, aren’t the only clues either. Nvidia’s account also has a new header image, which has “21 days, 21 years” written on it. This appears to be a reference to the announcement of the GeForce 256, the graphics card that kicked off GeForce as we know it today.
The GeForce 256 was announced on the 31st of August 1999, in other words, it will be 21 years old in 21 days time. For the anniversary, Nvidia could well announce what’s next, celebrating how far GeForce has come over the years.

KitGuru Says: Nothing is confirmed yet, but Nvidia doesn’t just post these countdown videos for nothing. We are clearly building up to something big here. Will many of you be marking your calendars for August 31st?
