NVIDIA's "It's Coming" reveal to be made Saturday

Last week, NVIDIA's Facebook page posted up a mysterious image, shown above, with the tagline "It's coming". On Monday, NVIDIA revealed that it will make a major announcement related to the "It's coming" teaser late on Saturday.

The graphics card maker posted up word on its official web site that the reveal will be made during the GeForce LAN / NVIDIA Gaming Festival (NGF) 2012, to be held in Shanghai, China. The announcement will be made at 7:30PM April 28th PT (that's 10:30 pm ET) so it's going to be a late night for some people who want to stay up to watch it.

NVIDIA also says it will be providing a streaming video of the big announcement on its GeForce.com webpage. That would be a big hint that the reveal has something to do with a new GeForce-based PC graphics card announcement.

In March, the company announced the GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, a single GPU-based 2 GB card for $499 that was also the first to use the company's new processor design, code-named Kepler. The new announcement could be NVIDIA's launch of an even more powerful, and more expensive, Kepler-based dual-GPU graphics card, perhaps sold under the name the GeForce GTX 690.

it will just be the gtx 690 dual gpu card. Nothing to see here except a really expensive card which will have lower clock speeds on each core than the gtx 680 there will be slower in some games and faster in others like always. If nvidia really wants to shake things up make a gpu with 2 gpus that are the same speed as the fastest single gpu card and stick a solid copper heatsink on to keep it cool. Maybe then it would be worth the hype. No sane person would buy a gpu that is slower in some games.

I was just thinking that no sane person would buy a $500+ GPU when you could get the same or better performance for less 6 months later. Maybe that is just me, but I don't see the point in paying out the nose for graphics. I find buying the last generation high-end cards (at a substantial discount) to be more than enough.

Do you folks here at Neowin read the comments here? Last article about this, I posted a link to TPU and they said it was for the GTX 690 dual-GPU card... LOL
