NVIDIA has announced via their website and Twitter feed that the company will be holding a special GeForce livestream this week. The event be broadcast on NVIDIA’s Twitch channel.

NVIDIA has not announced what the event will be for, or any content details, for that matter. However given that it’s a GeForce event and that NVIDIA has already announced their first Pascal architecture GPU for the HPC market, a similar consumer announcement does seem to be the most likely candidate.

    Ha! They where pretty adamant about not wanting to support FreeSync back when it came out. If they ever do, it'll be quietly slipped into some hotfix driver and never mentioned. Reply

    Well, their notebook GPUs already support VESA Adaptive Sync. They call it "mobile G-Sync" or something. I'm hoping they announce it as "G-Sync Support for VESA Adaptive Sync" or something. Despite what the marketing says, there isn't such a thing as a Freesync monitor, they all support the "VESA Adaptive Sync" standard, all Nvidia has to do is support the same standard and we'll all be happy. They can continue to support their proprietary standard.

    How about G-Sync for the standard and G-Sync Platinum for the proprietary thing?

    Remains to be seen if it's an actual launch with availability within the next days/weeks or just a paper launch specifically made to just draw attention away from Polaris (which is rumored to be formally announced during the Battlefield 5 reveal, in the same day). Reply

    Head to head, eh? Interesting.

    Are we still expecting a "1060 Ti" to go head to head with Polaris 10's vr min spec part? That'll be interesting.

    A cut-down GP104 this early in the game performing the same as a Polaris 10 wouldn't bode very well for nVidia since the GP104 is expected to be have a ~40% larger die.

    Might as well just rebrand the GM204 and lower its price in order to fill that performance slot, until GP106 is ready.

    Depends on what yields are like and you're also discounting the idea that this part wouldn't eviscerate Polaris 10 performance-wise, which is always a possibility. We'll never know until the benchmarks are out. Reply

    Rumor mongering I've seen elsewhere suggests that although both're going to be doing paper launches, nVidia will have hardware shipped to customers first. Reply

    Although not impossible, that would be very odd, since AMD has been showing functional hardware to the public since the CES in January, whereas Jen Hsun Huang had to show the Drive PX2 with Maxwell MXM cards (where it was supposed to have Pascal cards). Reply

    AMD has a history of paper launches. Take the Fury Pro Duo, still can't find it anywhere. Reply

    He didn't "have to". It wasn't a product demonstration, it was a mock-up showing the form factor of the board. AMD is just desperate to show investors something, whereas NVIDIA is not. AMD has been going out of their way to make promises for a while now. It's understandable because they have not been doing so well. But you need to take it into consideration when you're trying to read what their public displays mean. Reply
