Nvidia cancels gtc coronavirus

Before tomorrow's NVIDIA's GTC event keynote speech, Jensen Huang, the CEO of the GPU giant, made a rather ridiculous joke to promote the event.

Although speculations about NVIDIA’s secrets have sparked rumors for months and people are increasingly expecting the company to launch the next generation of the GeForce series, Huang offers a completely surprising option: thinner graphics cards, The world's largest graphics card.

In the YouTube uploaded to the official NVIDIA channel, you can see the CEO putting on oven gloves in the luxurious kitchen that most of us dream of, and then heading to the nearby oven.

After opening the door, he saw Huang pull out a huge board, which seemed to be connected to a huge GPU. The weight of the motherboard made Huang mumble and lift it over the counter, and then said: "Ladies and gentlemen, we have the largest graphics card in the world".

Looking at the weight of what Huang has been doing, it is hard to disagree. We can only imagine what kind of graphic power this beast would produce if it were real and practical.

Although this is undoubtedly a joke before tomorrow, it may indicate that NVIDIA is planning to release some very shocking news.

If the rumors and fairly public clues from NVIDIA are valid, we should first look at the next-generation 7nm Ampere GPUs, more specifically, GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070. The first few signs are that the performance of the GPU will increase by 75% compared to the existing GeForce RTX 2000 series models.

Considering Huang's joke, Nvidia may be preparing to brandish "the world's most powerful graphics card" or similar slogans.

As for the confirmation, we don't have to wait too long. NVIDIA's pre-recorded GTC keynote was originally scheduled to be held at the end of March, but it was postponed due to the ongoing global pandemic. It will be broadcast tomorrow (May 14th, Pacific time) at 6 am. The marketing purpose of this event is that NVIDIA will showcase the latest innovations in multiple industries, including high-performance computing, artificial intelligence and graphics.
