NVIDIA's ANZ (Australia and New Zealand) Twitter account briefly shared a teaser of something that will be revealed on March 19. TechPowerUp has some details and speculatiokn over here about this now-deleted tweet:
The now-deleted Tweet contained an animation showing the shape of an eye tracking two points of light crossing its iris. This date falls just a couple of days ahead of the March 22 debut of GTC 2020, the NVIDIA-promoted trade-show covering all things graphics tech. As many on the tweet and online forums discussing have pointed out, the announcement could probably be related to a commercial release of NVIDIA's foveated rendering technology that was demonstrated way back at SIGGRAPH 2016, at a time when VR and related technologies were all the rage.
Here's a video that shows off foveated rendering, it dates back to 2016:
