How to watch Nvidia’s AI announcement at GTC

Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference is in full swing, but it’s CEO Jensen Huang’s keynote address that has everyone waiting with bated breath. He’s expected to make major announcements about Nvidia’s future AI developments and how Nvidia GPUs will power them. Following the launch and subsequent explosion in coverage of the ChatGPT chatbot, Nvidia is looking to recapture the conversation around AI and show why its developments, more so than its competition, are what we should be excited about.

But how do you watch Nvidia’s AI announcement at GTC? There’s an official stream that you can tap into right here when it’s time.

What to expect from Nvidia’s GTC keynote

Nvidia’s GTC shows are always packed full of exciting announcements and debuts. The last one in November 2022 featured the launch of the RTX 4090 and 4080, as well as showcases of DLSS 3 and new Nvidia in-car entertainment systems. GTC 2023, however, is said to focus much more on artificial intelligence.

The secret’s out. Thanks to ChatGPT, everyone knows about the power of modern #AI.

To find out what’s coming next, tune in to NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang’s keynote at #GTC23 on Tuesday, March 21, at 8 a.m. PDT.

But despite Nvidia making major investments in AI hardware and software over the years, from its automated vehicle technologies to Tensor cores in its consumer GPUs, the conversation is moving swiftly in the AI space, and Nvidia is not at the forefront of it. With ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Microsoft’s Bing AI-augmented search, Nvidia faces an uphill battle to regain some mindshare when it comes to AI.

However, it is poised to take a big swing at that lofty goal, where it is likely to show off what its GPUs can do when powering localized AI, and some new software developments it has made on AI models of its own. It’s calling this year’s Spring GTC the “No. 1 AI developer conference,” arguably rebranding it from its titular GPU focus.

We may also hear the first details about future GPU architectures, like Blackwell, which is the expected successor for the existing RTX 40-series Ada Lovelace GPUs.

Jensen Huang will also talk about new metaverse and cloud technologies, as well as sustainable computing.

Nvidia released a short teaser for the keynote, which doesn’t reveal many details, but does whet our appetite for what’s to come.

Why it’s a surprisingly good time to buy a GPU right now
AMD RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards.

Getting a good deal on a GPU is all about timing. Buy at the wrong time, and you'll end up overpaying.

But I have good news for you. I've been closely monitoring GPU prices as we move through the final quarter of the year, and I'm seeing some really solid deals out there, with many of the best graphics cards coming in under their retail price. If you've been thinking of buying a graphics card, now is turning out to be a surprisingly good time.
Why is now the time to buy a GPU?

Nvidia’s RTX Super might be a massive boost at no extra cost

We just got another round of leaks surrounding the rumored Nvidia RTX 40 Super lineup. This time, the sources speak about the amount of memory these new GPUs might serve up. Nvidia may be making progress toward rivaling some of AMD's best graphics cards, which typically have a lot more VRAM. But is this upgrade really going to be as significant as some speculate? Not all reputable sources agree.

A third source has just weighed in on the matter of the rumored RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4070 Super. Benchlife cites its own sources at Nvidia's board partners as it claims that the RTX 4080 Super might come with 20GB of memory, whereas the RTX 4070 Super might be boosted to 16GB. Doing so would definitely require chip changes for both cards. The RTX 4080 Super would now share the same AD102 GPU as the flagship RTX 4090, and the RTX 4070 Super would be bumped up to the AD103 chip found in the RTX 4080.

Nvidia may launch three new Super GPUs to fight back AMD

Nvidia may be readying three new GPUs -- the RTX 4080 Super, RTX 4070 Ti Super, and the RTX 4070 Super. We haven't seen Super cards since Nvidia's RTX 20-series, but if this leak turns out to be true, they're coming back. Will they be worthwhile enough to rank high among the best graphics cards? It's hard to say, but they could help it compete against AMD's recent GPUs.

The information comes from hongxing2020, a frequent leaker in the GPU space. Nvidia already has a decent spread of GPUs between the RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti, and the RTX 4070. However, if a refresh to the Ada lineup is reportedly on the way, we might see some notable changes, but only if Nvidia decides to shake things up and use a different chip for at least two out of those three GPUs.
