Nvidia unveiling next-gen GPU June 21

Graphics manufacturer to present its new chip and give live demonstrations at San Francisco launch event in three weeks.

Nvidia has revealed that it will announce its next-generation graphics processing unit on June 21 at a launch event in San Francisco. An invitation sent to Nvidia partners, analysts, and members of the press promises invitees an "evening of full-throttle entertainment" filled with "revolutionary technologies, hot 3D content, and exciting gaming action as we unveil our next-generation GPU."

Festivities will open with cocktails and a case-mod contest before the start of the scheduled press conference with live product demonstrations. The evening will conclude with a reception, including hands-on product demonstrations and a Battlefield 2 LAN party. If Nvidia's next-gen GPU launch plans sound familiar, it might be because Nvidia announced its current-generation GeForce 6 series in a similar but more public fashion at a GeForce LAN party in San Francisco last year.

Nvidia has indicated in the past that its next-generation desktop GPU will be similar to the GPU designed for the Sony PlayStation 3.
