In a world of social media obsession, it shouldn’t be a surprise that NVIDIA chose Facebook to air the first pictures of an upcoming graphics card whose title and market position will remain unknown…for now.
Earlier today, we were tipped off by a number of eager beavers…errr….members about a post NVIDIA made to their official GeForce Facebook page. It supposedly shows a teaser picture of an upcoming, unreleased graphics card. What the picture does show is a shroud with NVIDIA’s logo etched into it alongside what looks like a direct stylization of the GTX 480′s external heatsink design.
Naturally, we couldn’t get any more information from the boys in green about this (likely) Kepler-based card but considering the location of this post, it should be aimed directly at the gaming public. Could it finally be the card that topples AMD’s HD 6990 off of its lofty position as the fastest graphics card on the plane? Is it something that’s aimed at more affordable price points? There’s only one thing we know: considering how buttoned up NVIDIA has been about all things Kepler, posting a teaser is a big step. So, we’ll likely see this thing sooner rather than later. Let the rumors begin!
