All of NVIDIA’s attempts to get the audience to remember the events of 21 years ago had a single purpose – to smoothly lead PC gamers to the anticipation of the broadcast from the GeForce Special Event, which will be hosted by the founder of the company Jensen Huang. The broadcast will begin at 19:00 on September 1, Moscow time.
On the pages of the NVIDIA website, not only a page with a countdown to the start of the event appeared, but also a thematic article that sent game fans with experience back to 1999, when current games required 8 MB of memory from video cards, and the amount of RAM was supposed to reach 64 MB. The author of the publication quite ironically describes the everyday life of a novice gamer of that era: a resolution of 640 × 480 pixels and a scene refresh rate of 20 frames per second, as well as the need to save on school lunches in order to buy a GeForce 256.
All this rather prolonged retrospective eventually leads the reader to the statement that in the time remaining until September 1, NVIDIA will recall one year from the history of the gaming industry every day, until the first day of September marks the entry into a new era. Not otherwise, the event will focus on new gaming video cards. Although NVIDIA has not hinted at this in any way, they will most likely be based on the Ampere architecture.
