Nvidia has confirmed his opening speech for the next Computex 2022 event, which will take place on May 23rd.
Team Green “will showcase how AI is powering the enterprise data center and the latest products and technology for gamers and creators.”
The announcement also indicated that there will be a range of upcoming technologies and products (from various different segments) that will be detailed due to the stacked speaker lineup:
- Ian Buck, Vice President of Accelerated Computing
- Brian Kelleher, senior vice president for hardware engineering
- Ying Yin Shih, Director of Product Management for Accelerated Computing
- Michael Kagan, Chief Technology Officer
- Deepu Talla, Vice President of Embedded and Edge Computing
- Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of GeForce
Notably, of the six aforementioned Nvidia executives who were invited as speakers for the CEO Keynote, Fisher stands out the most.
Like VideoCardz aptly strong pointsFisher made an appearance at Nvidia’s CES 2022 conference to showcase one of the most powerful graphics cards currently available, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
So, is Nvidia finally ready to unveil its next-gen RTX 40 GPUs that we’ve been hearing so much about lately? We’re not sure, but Fisher’s presence may mean that Team Green could be gearing up to detail its upcoming products in the GPU space.
The GeForce exec suggested it with an official quote. “Nvidia and our partners will announce new developments and products on both the company and consumer fronts at the show,” he said.
That said, don’t be surprised if the next generation of GPUs isn’t mentioned at all. Judging by the number of speakers from Nvidia’s AI department, the burgeoning field of artificial intelligence will clearly be the highlight of the presentation. A tease for the Ada cards could be in the cards, however.
AMD and Intel join the fray
Nvidia’s longtime rival AMD is also set to deliver its keynote on May 23 as well. According to VideoCardz, Team Red CEO Lisa Su may be lifting the lid on her highly anticipated next-gen Ryzen series. As to whether RDNA 3 is part of the presentation, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Since the early stages of 2022, we’ve learned a lot about Nvidia’s RTX 40-series graphics cards. For example, the RTX 4090 flagship is expected to offer double the power of its predecessor, the RTX 3090. A September launch period has been cited by industry insiders.
Naturally, however, with such a boost in performance, we’ve also heard that these cards will be among the most power-hungry cards ever released, with some reports suggesting they could hit the 600-watt mark. Some rumors even point to a test card that sports a total graphics power (TGP) of 900 watts.
The keynote, which will be presented digitally, is scheduled for Monday, May 23 at 8:00 p.m. PT (UTC -7). Nvidia said the presentation will last one hour.
Elsewhere, Intel could join both Nvidia and AMD at Computex with its own presentation to showcase the Arc Alchemist desktop GPU series.
Still, even though Team Blue is showcasing this range at the event, you’ll have to wait a few more months before it hits stores due to yet another delay.
