NVIDIA GTC 2020 goes global and digital
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang will host a keynote for GTC 2020 digital conference in October. This is not the first GTC keynote Jensen hosted this year. Back in May, Jensen unveiled the first Ampere-based product called A100, a compute accelerator featuring GA100 GPU with 40GB of HBM2 memory.
Huang is will also host a GeForce Special Event on September 1st, but unlike GTC, the GeForce event will be strictly for gamers and consumers.
The GPU Tech Conference has not been a single event for a few years now. The series of keynotes have gone global where Jensen provides the latest updates on NVIDIA technology progress. Due to the global pandemic, this year’s on-site events have been canceled.
The company announced today that a series of separate events will be broadcasted for North America, Europe, Israel, India, Taiwan, Japan and Korea, promising live demos, specialized content, local startups and sponsors for each event.
