Watch Nvidia's GTC 2022 Keynote
Nvidia's GTC 2022 keynote will start at 8 AM Pacific Time, acting as the announcement event of the company's Hopper HPC architecture. Nvidia's CEO, Jensen Huang, will be personally leading the keynote, a fact that confirms that Nvidia will be making some high profile reveals at today's event.
Today, it is also possible that Nvidia will be updating gamers on their RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, which was revealed back at CES 2022. Since then, Nvidia has said little about the graphics card, and today is an opportunity to Nvidia to shed light on the company's new flagship gaming product.
In a blog post on the company's website, Nvidia has stated that they are "Hopped Up" for GTC 2022. This is a clear tease of Nvidia's planned Hopper architecture, the architecture that is alleged to succeed Ampere within the accelerated computing market. This is also supported by Nvidia's frequent mentions of AI and accelerated computing within their blog post.
Nvidia's Hopper products will likely replace the company's Ampere A100 accelerators, delivering to customers higher performance levels using new architectural innovations, faster memory, and (probably) a smaller lithography node. Rumour has it that Nvidia's Hopper architecture will be Nvidia's first MCM (Multi-Chip-Module) design, a move that may facilitate a large generational performance leap between Ampere and Hopper. That said, we will need to wait for Nvidia's GTC keynote to see exactly what Hopper will deliver.
Note that Nvidia's Hopper products will not be focused on gaming. While Ampere is an architecture that Nvidia has used within both the gaming and accelerated computing markets, Nvidia is reportedly shifting its strategy with their latest products. Nvidia's next-generation gaming GPUs will reportedly use Nvidia's planned Lovelace architecture, with Nvidia's Hopper architecture being focused on AI and accelerated computing.
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang kicks off #GTC22 with a keynote that presents the latest breakthroughs in #AI, data science, high performance computing, graphics, edge computing, networking, and autonomous machines.
