When Nvidia released its latest Pascal graphics cards for desktop PCs, it signalled a significant jump in outright performance from the previous Maxwell generation, with a completely new architecture offering not only improved frame rates but also much more efficient energy consumption -- the critical metric of performance per Watt. Nvidia has taken that leap further with a new range of 10-series graphics chipsets for gaming laptops, and unlike in previous generations they're not operating at a huge performance disadvantage versus desktops.

Nvidia has a new graphics card, and it is doubling down on virtual reality as the reason for hardcore gamers to upgrade their rigs. Several. Billion. Dollars went into R&D for this card -- it's faster than two GTX 980 cards in SLI, and it's even faster than the Titan X as well.

The new GeForce GTX 1080 also integrates new physics-based audio support, physically-accurate object manipulation using VR hand controllers, and a whole other bunch of goodies to entice you to part with your hard-earned dollars.

At 11AM AEST, Nvidia will (almost certainly) introduce its new Pascal video cards to the hardcore gaming world, with a special event live from the US, and the promise of something more than just new GPUs as well. Here's where you can watch along.
