Nvidia had promised the event will be “loaded with new, exclusive, hands-on demos of the hottest upcoming games, stage presentations from the world’s biggest games developers, and some spectacular surprises!”

The “spectacular surprises” bit is what we’re most interested in and it seems awfully coy with rumor mill churning at full speed. As we fully expected, Nvidia introduce at three new Turing-based GeForce graphics cards including the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, RTX 2070.
