Nvidia is one of few companies to host a press conference at Gamescom this year.

It is kicking off the mammoth European videogames show today with a special showcase event for press and members of the public alike. And that starts with a keynote address. It might even unveil the brand new GeForce graphics cards for 2018, as rumoured.

Here then are the details on how to watch the event live.

When is the Nvidia Gamescom 2018 press conference?

Nvidia will be hosting its press conference in Cologne today, Monday 20 August. These are the times it starts in several major locations around the globe:

  • UK: 5PM BST
  • Central Europe: 6PM CEST
  • East Coast US: 12PM EDT
  • West Coast US: 9AM PDT
  • Japan: 3AM JST Tuesday 21 August

Can I watch the Nvidia Gamescom 2018 press conference online?

You can watch the livestream of the event here. It is currently a countdown clock until the actual shindig starts.

It will also be available to view on Nvidia's Twitch channel.

What can I expect at the Nvidia Gamescom 2018 press conference?

The main part of the Nvidia GeForce Gaming Celebration will highlight products that run on Nvidia technologies and demonstrations of graphically intensive games. For example, EA and Bioware's forthcoming Anthem was shown during E3 running in 4K using GeForce GPU cards.

Expect similar during the Gamescom event.

We also hope, as previously stated above, that the company will finally unveil a refresh of its PC graphics card line-up, including the rumoured GTX 2080.

We'll update if and when we find out more.
