A few weeks ago, NVIDIA announced the cancellation of its GTC 2020 event. The green team was originally planning to replace it with an online keynote event, however that also changed, with NVIDIA promising to share some news on March 24th. Apparently, though, that also won’t happen.
NVIDIA’s Jensen Huang has just revealed that NVIDIA will not be sharing its GTC news on March 24th. Jensen claims that this is due to the Coronavirus. However, this is most likely an indication of a possible Ampere delay. I mean, we’re talking about online news. If such a delay wasn’t the case, then how can it harm people to share news via the Internet? What that has to do with the Coronavirus?
Not only that, but NVIDIA has also deleted its previous teaser tweet for March 19th. So yeah, don’t expect anything important happening on that day too.
We would normally expect NVIDIA’s Ampere GPUs to come out around August 2020. Whether that’s still the plan remains to be seen.
Stay tuned for more!
