A European event was held in Paris.The nForce5 chipset for Intel will also be released as the nForce5 650i SLI and nForce5 680i SLI.
This year, the firm's GeForce LAN 3 is set on 7th and 8th of November in "Bay Area", which means either in San Francisco or in one of smaller convention centres in the Valley. The launch of 8800 will happen in front of 600 gamers and a small horde of journalists, industry analysts and partners.
Unsurprisingly, the event is sponsored by Intel Corporation, followed by Antec, Tagan and Thermaltake.
