Even though the 2021 edition of CES will be an entirely virtual affair due to the ongoing coronoavirus pandemic, a number of major companies have still been lining up to schedule presentations as part or around the event. This has included Intel, AMD, and now NVIDIA, who today is announcing an event for January 12th.

Dubbed “GeForce RTX: Game On”, the broadcasted event will be presented by Jeff Fisher, NVIDIA’s Senior VP for GeForce. NVIDIA has set aside an hour for their CES-adjacent presentation, which will kick off at 9am Pacific on January 12th, 2021.

Today’s reveal is little more than a hold the date teaser, with NVIDIA promising to “unveil the latest innovations in gaming and graphics.” And while the company isn’t offering any more details than that, observationally we’ve seen that over the last several years NVIDIA has frequently used CES to announce new products and technologies. This goes particularly for laptop products, as CES has increasingly transformed into a laptop showcase for the PC OEMs. Fittingly, as NVIDIA continues its Ampere GPU release cadence with smaller and less power-hungry parts, the next chip expected to be released (GA106?) should be a good candidate for use in laptops.

One way or another, we’ll find out for sure next month with NVIDIA’s presentation. So stay tuned.

    Until I can actually buy an RTX 3080, I don't want to hear about anything else.

    I've now got a 3 month old backorder, they told me maybe before the end of the month, those early September backorders will all be delivered. 4 months to fulfill the day one orders.

    This supply issue should show up in their quarterly results, let's wait and see.

    There were reports of millions of $ sold to miners. I expect you will see a net positive in those reports.

    I thought Nvidia insisted on no preorders for the 30 series, what place let you pre order?

    If the rumor mill sites can be trusted (always debatable), you'll get to hear about a 3080 TI (same core count as 3090, 20GB ram) that you won't be able to buy for $1000.
