We're 100 percent sure Nvidia's effusive CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, will be taking the wraps off the next generation Nvidia Ampere GeForce graphics cards today, live at the GeForce Special Event. And you can watch it all unfold here from 9am Pacific, 12pm Eastern, or 5pm UK time, and if the Twitch embed gets all funky we'll have a YouTube stream here too.But, after the professional Ampere unveiling, will this gaming-focused presentation be delivered from his kitchen, lounge, wine cellar, leather jacket-filled walk-in wardrobe, or some special, socially distanced venue?That is, obviously, the important question, but there is also the small matter of the cards themselves. Today's GeForce Special Event isn't going to be the launch of the full suite of Nvidia Ampere graphics cards, we're only really likely to get a glimpse of the Founders Editions of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 launching in September, along with a few of their key specs.The RTX 3070 is expected to arrive around a month later, so might get a cursory mention, but the mainstream Ampere cards aren't likely to arrive until well into 2021 at this point.We might get a hint of pricing but, given that we're expecting the red team to pop up sometime soon with an AMD Big Navi spoiler, I wouldn't be surprised if Jen-Hsun and Co. kept that particular bit of information back for the full launch of the top two Nvidia Ampere cards later this month.Despite the fact that nothing official, bar a short design-led video, has been divulged about the new generation of GeForce GPUs, we do have a pretty good idea of what we're going to be looking at. Thanks to a host of rumours and leaks the details seem pretty rock solid now, especially now that AIBs have all the information… and that has inevitably been leaked too.After months of rumours and leaks Nvidia's next-gen graphics cards will get their official introduction at the GeForce Special Event.
