What to expect from Nvidia’s CES 2022 keynote
There are several exciting announcements that Nvidia might be planning to make during CES 2022. Various rumors and teasers from Nvidia itself point to the keynote being a big one for gamers, but Nvidia is also drawing attention to other possible reveals.
Gamers all over the world are holding their breath in anticipation of Nvidia’s upcoming graphics cards plans. One such major announcement could be the release of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, Nvidia’s upcoming monster of a gaming GPU. With 21Gbps of GDDR6X memory and a whole 1TB/s of bandwidth, the card is rumored to release as soon as later this month.
On the other end of the GPU spectrum is the RTX 3050, allegedly set to release on the same day as the RTX 3090 Ti. This card is likely going to be much more affordable than the 3090 Ti, sporting 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Some rumors also point to announcements about a 12GB version of the RTX 3080, a 16GB model of the 3070 Ti, and an improved version of the RTX 3060 with 12GB of memory.
In all likelihood, Nvidia will also reveal new RTX 30-series laptop graphics cards. The cards in question include a mobility version of the RTX 3080 Ti as well as the RTX 3070 Ti. The 3080 is currently rumored to have up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps. Not much is known about the RTX 3070 Ti for laptops just yet, aside from the fact that it will likely be released simultaneously with the RTX 3080 Ti.
In addition to the graphics cards themselves, we are likely going to learn about new gaming laptops decked out with the new RTX GPUs. Nvidia will probably also touch on cloud gaming via the subscription-based Nvidia GeForce NOW.
There is a lot to cover outside of Nvidia’s gaming endeavors. The company mentions the Omniverse, which is Nvidia’s version of the metaverse that allows professionals to simulate real-world environments in 3D for various purposes. It also mentions Nvidia Isaac in the context of smart automation and robotics. Lastly, Nvidia hints at new information about Nvidia Drive, an end-to-end platform for developing software for self-driving cars.
