Nvidia postpones their GTC 2020 product announcements

by March 18, 2020 0 comments

There had been quite a few rumours flying around that Nvidia would announce their next gen GPUs at their GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2020. Needless to say, the majority of the gaming community was looking forward to it since the leaks regarding the Ampere based GPUs seemed promising. But due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Nvidia had earlier decided to cancel GTC 2020 and hold the conference digitally. It was announced that Nvidia’s Co-Founder and CEO, Jensen Huang, would still give a keynote address. Later, that was scrapped too and the company announced that it will be doing Press Releases of their products instead. And now, those have been postponed too. 

Many believe that GTC 2020 would have finally seen the revelation of the Ampere based next gen Nvidia GPUs amongst other things and we would finally know what was up with the now deleted cryptic blinking eye tweet that Nvidia had posted earlier this month. But we will have to wait a bit more. In a blog post, Huang said: 

“We have exciting products and news to share with you. 

But this isn’t the right time. We’re going to hold off on sharing our GTC news for now. 

That way, our employees, partners, the media and analysts who follow us, and our customers around the world can focus on staying safe and reducing the spread of the virus. 

We will still stream tons of great content from researchers and developers who have prepared great talks. 

This is a time to focus on our family, our friends, our community. Our employees are working from home. Many hourly workers will not need to work but they’ll all be fully paid. 

Stay safe everyone. We will get through this together.” 

There are no details as of yet regarding the schedule for the new announcements. Nevertheless, it is reassuring to know that Nvidia has given time off to its workers and they will be fully paid.
