What’s the skinny? Earlier today NVIDIA posted a somewhat cryptic message to its GeForce twitter account with the hashtag UltimateCountdown. They also changed the accounts banner pic to the #UltimateCountdown with 21 days. 21 years written under the hashtag.
NVIDIA is pretty famous for doing these cryptic teases prior to a product launch. One could speculate that this is the beginning of the hype for the new 3000 series GPU launch, but August 31st is also the 21st anniversary of the GeForce GPU lineup. It could just be hype for the anniversary, but with a new product launch also due to drop at any time, August 31st is looking pretty good for NVIDIA fans.
