Nvidia CEO: “this isn’t the right time” for exciting product announcements

Nvidia has postponed its “exciting products and news” originally planned for the Graphics Technology Conference (GTC). After shifting the conference online, and later cutting Jen-Hsun Huang’s keynote from the agenda, Nvidia has decided that it’s better for all involved if they instead “focus on staying safe”.

“We have exciting products and news to share with you,” Huang says in a blog post on Nvidia’s website. “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.”

Following the cancellation of the GTC keynote, important information was intended to be divulged on March 24, 2020. While that’s no longer the case, there will still be various content and talks streamed by researchers and developers across a breadth of topics, including AI and ray tracing.
