Nvidia announced a GeForce RTX-related live stream, promising “some exciting news in the gaming world” on January 4.
Nvidia President and CEO Jensen Huang will likely be on the live stream to reveal some news, possibly some additions to the GeForce RTX 3000 series of graphics cards. Rumors in the weeks recent shows the company is likely to announce a new entry-level card, the high-end 3090 Ti and the 3070 Ti with 16GB of VRAM.
To say that the graphics card has recently been in short supply would be an understatement. The global chip shortage, which is caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, is estimated to continue well into 2022 and possibly beyond.
“I think next year, demand will outstrip supply. We don’t have any magic bullets in navigating the supply chain,” Huang said in an interview with Yahoo! Finance last month.
The problem with bots instantly buying up their stock of graphics cards after they’ve gone live is another issue that’s stopping gamers around the world from shopping for GPUs. The hope is that if Nvidia announces a new card next week, the company will have a plan in place to prevent such behavior.
The live stream will air this coming Tuesday, January 4, at 10 a.m. CT.
