Nvidia all but confirms the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti


— 10:32 AM on February 22, 2017

A pretty big change to GeForce.com today practically confirms that an offical announcement of the hotly-anticipated GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is coming in less than a week. A countdown clock with a curious emphasis on TIME welcomes visitors, and a quick dig through the page's source code reveals the background image file names that tip off the entire game:

  • gdc-2017/GTX1080Ti_Countdown__Hero_1920x1080_h264_2mbps.mp4
  • gdc-2017/GTX1080Ti_Countdown_WebM_2kbps_variable_vp8.webm

The green team already made it look like such an announcement was coming soon when it announced that something attendees "won't want to miss" would be shown at the upcoming Game Developers Conference, scheduled to begin on February 28 in San Francisco.

We don't know much else about the upcoming announcement, but Jen-Hsun Huang will probably wear a leather motorcycle jacket, and performance-hungry gamers will be eager to get their hands on the "#UltimateGeForce." Thanks to frequent TR tipster SH SOTN for the heads-up.
