NVIDIA made headlines with gamers yesterday when it took centerstage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the responses were more admonitory rather than praises. The reason behind this is the big disappointment for the non-arrival of the highly anticipated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
Instead of giving updates on the much hyped graphics card, participants of the event were given another information instead.
In the said event, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsung Huang talked about self-driving cars, virtual reality, gaming and artificial intelligence. When the time for him to discuss NVIDIA’s take on PC gaming came, many held their breaths. The clock stopped. And then a huge wave of disappointment rained on them like a surfer wiping out on his board.
Much of the keynote centered on artificial intelligence and self-driving cars. In fact, more than half of the time spent on the said event were videos showing NVIDIA’s Volta being used in real life. Nothing much is said about the rumored NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
Because of this, NVIDIA is now receiving a lot of backlash as a result of yesterday’s keynote speech. However, what many failed to realize is the fact that NVIDIA is still a gaming company who makes gaming hardware. Even if it failed to announce a new product during the CES, the fact of the matter is that 2017 has just started. NVIDIA still has days on its hands to surprise gamers with the newest and baddest graphics card.
That being said, there is still a chance that NVIDIA may be working on a new GPU as of this moment. Perhaps the reason for the non-arrival of the GTX 1080 Ti is the fact that the GPU is still not ready for the public. It is probably still incubating within NVIDIA’s design labs as of this very moment.
At the end of the day, we are still in the early days of 2017. There are still more days to come for NVIDIA to release a new product, and mind you, it is bound to release one sooner, rather than later.
