In the past Gamescom wasn't really considered as a venue for big product launches but this could change as NVIDIA is rumored to be planning its GeForce GTX 880 launch at this German gaming expo. This year the event takes place in Cologne, Germany between August 13 - 17.
So what exactly is happening in August? According NVIDIA’s calendar, there are two event where ‘something could be shown to public’. First is SIGGRAPH, which is more software-oriented, and then there’s Gamescom. This event takes place in Germany between 13rd and 17th August. Of course NVIDIA will be present there, in fact they even have their own booth there.
