Nvidia has confirmed that it will deliver a keynote this morning during CES 2022. Nvidia’s senior vice president Jeff Fisher and vice president and general manager Ali Kani will share the company’s plans. Points to cover include, according to Nvidia, “the latest breakthroughs in accelerated computing — from design and simulation to gaming and autonomous vehicles.”
Nvidia hasn’t specified much in terms of which products it will talk about during Tuesday’s keynote, but it gives a good idea of the topics it’s planning to cover. We can expect to hear more about the Nvidia Omniverse, Nvidia Isaac (Nvidia’s robotics platform), self-driving cars, and the rumored upcoming Nvidia graphics cards.
Nvidia’s CES 2022 keynote is scheduled to take place today, January 4, at 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET).
The keynote is going to be streamed on several platforms. Nvidia will be showing it on its own website, as well as on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, and IBM Video. Once the scheduled stream goes up on Nvidia’s channel, we will embed it into this article for your convenience, so come back shortly to watch the keynote right on this page.

Nvidia didn’t pull any punches at its CES keynote event, announcing several new products aimed to assert its dominance in the GPU field — and in emerging areas, too.
Starting with laptops, Nvidia unveiled two new GPUs for mobile computers: The RTX 3070 Ti and the RTX 3080 Ti, which the company says is the first time an 80 Ti card will be available in a laptop. The 3070 Ti provides 100 frames per second (fps) at 1440p, Nvidia said, and is 70% faster than the RTX 2070 Super. It’ll be in laptops with pricing starting at $1,499. The mobile 3080 Ti, on the other hand, offers performance beyond the desktop-class Titan RTX and supports 16GB of GDDR6 memory. You’ll be able to get it in laptops starting at $2,499.
There were new Nvidia Studio laptops made by third-party partners, too, which the company claims are up to seven times faster than Apple’s latest MacBook Pro. That’s quite a claim, and we’re looking forward to testing them out.
As for graphics cards, Nvidia lifted the lid on the RTX 3090 Ti, which will come with 24GB of GDDR6X memory running at 21Gb/s. That’ll bring 40 teraflops for shaders, 78 teraflops for ray tracing, and 320 teraflops for A.I. processing. Further details, such as price, were thin on the ground, but we’ll get more info later in the month.
On the more affordable side of things is the new RTX 3050, which is meant to make ray tracing more accessible without breaking the bank. It’s got 8GB of GDDR6 memory and will be available from January 27 with a starting price of $249.
Nvidia wasn’t done there. It also announced an expansion to its GeForce Now games streaming service, with new partnerships with AT&T and Samsung, support for more games, and additional features like DLSS and ray tracing coming to a number of titles. There was news of Nvidia’s efforts to make 1440p resolution the standard for esports monitors, the announcement that its Omniverse 3D platform was out of beta, and plenty of progress on its work on autonomous vehicle systems.
