I'm currently on-board the Ampere Hype Train right now, with NVIDIA officially kicking off the marketing campaign for its next-gen GeForce graphics cards.

As a long time GeForce fan (my online handle has been 'anthony256' right after I got my hands-on the GeForce 256 back in 1999) it makes the hairs on my arms stand up to even write about this. NVIDIA followed up its #UltimateCountdown tease with "21 Days. 21 Years".

Now, 21 days from now is August 31, 2020 -- why is that important?

August 31, 1999 was the day NVIDIA revealed the GeForce 256... the first-ever GPU, and the first-ever GeForce graphics card.

It is a monumental day for NVIDIA, so it seems like the new Ampere-based GeForce graphics cards will be unveiled on August 31, which is 21 days from now.

It kinda feels unbelievable at this point, after all these years of rumors, hype and everything in between -- we're about to have next-gen graphics cards launch from both sides with NVIDIA firing first with the marketing train now left the station for GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards.
