Recent trademarks from GPU group Nvidia suggest some new VR announcements could be on the way.
The trademarks, filed in May and uncovered by Reddit user elev8dity, apply to various logos around the term VR including VR, VR+, VR2 and VR2+. Tellingly, these trademarks were filed on the same day as its trademark for VirtualLink, which was announced last month. It’s an open standard for VR PC connection that aims to remove multiple wires plugging into your PC using a single USB Type-C connection and backed by the likes of Oculus and Valve.
As another Redditor pointed out, the logo for the VR trademark also appears on the VirtualLink website, so they’re almost certainly connected. It’s thought that VirtualLink’s work will first be seen in the next generation of VR headsets.
More recently the company has filed trademarks for Quadro RTX and GeForce RTX, suggesting there might be new versions of two of its most popular lines of graphics cards on the way. There’s also mention of something called Nvidia Jetpack, which is certainly fun to imagine what could be.
All that and still no mention of a GTX 11 series graphics card, which many of us wanting to push our VR experiences further have been eager to hear about for some time.
