How to watch Nvidia’s Computex 2024 keynote — and what to expect

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang will make the company’s Computex keynote address this weekend and is scheduled to discuss “advanced developments in the fields of accelerated computing and artificial intelligence.” That AI will feature in the address is no surprise, but whether that will mean we’re going to learn about new graphics cards or AI hardware from Nvidia remains to be seen.

Regardless of what Huang actually ends up talking about, though, the keynote is set to be one of the biggest of the Computex show. That’s despite it taking place before the show has even started. Here’s how to watch the Nvidia keynote at Computex, so you don’t miss any of it.

Nvidia’s keynote will take place early in the U.S., at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT on June 2, as it’ll actually begin at 7 p.m. local time in Taiwan. If you were planning to attend in person, you’ve unfortunately missed the boat to register, but you can watch along with the live stream like the rest of us — or watch it later after you wake up. We wouldn’t blame you.

Although there will be plenty of third-party streams covering the keynote, the most straightforward and distraction-free way to watch is viaNvidia’s official stream on its YouTube channel. Nvidia hasn’t announced a Twitch cast of the event at this time, so it’s potentially a YouTube exclusive.

Nvidia has been especially quiet regarding what we can look forward to hearing about at this event, though there are some clear signals that Nvidia will make AI a major focus. It’s been pushing AI as a keystone of its company plans for years now, first with self-driving cars, and more recently with powering the servers behind chatbots like ChatGPT.

Nvidia’s GPUs and their tensor cores are finding their way into all sorts of AI-driven applications, and it’s continued to push AI at the local level through its RTX Video and its own Chat with RTX chatbot.

We’re expecting Nvidia to highlight how its hardware and software is finding its way to the heart of many modern AI platforms. We may see some new updates for GeForce Now, or learn about how AI is being used to power NPCs in video games. Perhaps DLSS will get another update.

Nvidia even teased an AI in games feature related to an April Fool’s Joke from seven years ago.

There have been rumors we’ll see the new Blackwell series of GPUs announced, but that seems more likely to take place toward the end of the year. We wouldn’t get our hopes up for new hardware at the event, but you never know.

This might be the most ridiculous GPU I’ve ever seen
The MSI GeForce RTX 4090 Suprim Fuzion graphics card.

MSI just revealed what might just be the most ridiculous graphics card we've seen to date, and it snagged the Best Choice Award at Computex 2024. MSI's GeForce RTX 4090 24G Suprim Fuzion is an enormous GPU, and although it's equipped with just two fans -- a rarity for an RTX 4090 -- it may have the best cooling solution in MSI's arsenal, all thanks to the built-in all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooler. Don't see any external radiator? That's because there isn't one. All the tubing and the radiator are tucked away inside the shroud of this massive beast. But how much will that really help?

It's safe to say that MSI went a little extra when it designed this GPU. With an integrated radiator inside the shroud, it looks quite unassuming at a glance, but don't be fooled -- this is a 4.5-slot behemoth that probably weighs a ton. MSI got rid of every single external tube and concealed the entire AIO cooler within the shroud, making the pipes 90% shorter than in traditional designs.

Nvidia ARM laptops may be in the works, and that could change everything
Intel and Nvidia badges on the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16.

Imagine a laptop with an iteration of Nvidia’s ARM-based CPU combined with a powerful RTX graphics card, all enhanced by AI. Years ago, that would have sounded outlandish, but now it seems like it could actually happen.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang and Dell CEO Michael Dell more or less confirmed that Team Green will enter the AI-PC hype next year.

Nvidia RTX 50-series graphics cards: news, release date, price, and more
RTX 4070 seen from the side.

Nvidia already makes some of the best graphics cards, but it's also not resting on its laurels. Although the RTX 40-series, which has been bolstered by a refresh, is still very recent, Nvidia is also working on its next-gen GPUs from the RTX 50-series.

The release date of RTX 50-series GPUs is still at least a few months away, but various rumors and leaks give us a better idea of what to expect. Here's everything we know about Nvidia's upcoming generation of graphics cards.
