Nvidia is looking to knock-the-socks off of PC gamers early next month in that the company went as far as to claim that this September 1st presentation will be a “Breakthrough” when it comes to PC gaming since it will be like the year 1999.
Although back in the late 1990s, yours truly was gaming in a dingy basement playing emulated titles and having a blast with games like Doom 2, Duke Nukem 3D, GL or Umbach Tron, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2, and so on. However, For those of you unaware, something else also happened during the mid-part of 1999, and that “thing” is Nvidia dropping the GeForce 256 for public consumption.
According to nvidia.com, we learn that this upcoming event scheduled for the early part of September will be as big as Nvidia dropping said GPU during 1999. In other words, Nvidia is looking to do something big in the 21st century as it did late last century.
Although the above link only leads to a splash page that features a countdown to September 1st, a secondary link is also up detailing how the company’s CEO, Jensen Huang, will head up the event in question and lead gamers and fans alike into the “future.”
Anyway, if that sounds interesting, you can look over what’s in store next month by reading the following news blurb:
