Rumour | Get Amped for GTC 2020, with Ampere GPUs set to launch at upcoming rescheduled NVIDIA conference
GTC 2020 has long been speculated about as the first event where NVIDIA will unveil its Ampere architecture. Huang has done little to dissuade those rumours either, remarking in February that GTC 2020 "will not disappoint". Now, the company has hinted that we should "get Amped" for Ampere.
Rescheduled for May 14, GTC 2020 had been reduced to an online event in February and then cancelled altogether in March. Now CEO Jensen Huang will host a pre-recorded keynote address on YouTube at 06:00 PDT (UTC-07:00).
While GTC 2020 includes live webinars and recorded talks, for which you can register on the GTC website, the star of the show will probably be NVIDIA's "latest platform breakthroughs in…Professional Graphics." The phrase "Get Amped" does not necessarily guarantee that NVIDIA will showcase the Ampere architecture on May 14, but this does seem like a pretty big hint to us, at any rate.
