Here’s how to watch the Nvidia Computex 2019 press conference

Nvidia’s Computex 2019 press conference is expected to kickoff the annual information and communications technology show.

The press conference itself will occur a day before the actual start of Computex 2019, which will begin on May 28. Nvidia’s press conference is scheduled for May 27 at 2:30 pm, local time, in Taipei, Taiwan.

Here’s the rundown on everything you need to know about Nvidia’s press conference at Computex 2019 — including what to expect and when and how to watch it.

How to watch

Nvidia’s Computex 2019 press conference will be held on Monday, May 27 from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in Taipei.

What to expect

There haven’t been very many official details released about Nvidia’s upcoming Computex 2019 press conference. Nvidia’s main webpage on the subject only provided a vague statement, saying that they “will unveil the latest technologies shaping today’s business.” The event page for the press conference on the Computex Taipei website provided the same level of sparse detail, but also managed to mention a few of the possible topics covered in the press conference. Namely, the press conference may cover the “latest technologies in A.I., content creation, gaming, and more.

Speaking of gaming, Nvidia may have dropped a hint recently about a possible forthcoming GeForce announcement. Nvidia uploaded a 16-second teaser video on YouTube titled “Something super is coming…” and it was hashtagged with GeForce. Considering the timing of the video’s release and the hashtag, it’s possible that, as Tom’s Hardware notes, Nvidia could use the Computex 2019 press conference to announce the development of a new ‘super’ GeForce graphics card. The video doesn’t offer much more detail than the word “super” and so how that would play out in a new graphics card is up for debate.

And if a new GeForce graphics card is on the agenda for next week’s press conference, it’s also possible that it might not be the only Nvidia graphics card featured during the event. As we reported last week, Nvidia might also have an answer to AMD’s Navi line of graphics cards. It was rumored that there may be a few “enhanced versions” of its RTX 2000-series Turing cards on the horizon. The enhanced version of these Turing cards are expected to feature faster memory.

Considering it’s been about two years since the last time Nvidia released a new line of graphics cards, it seems like the technology company would be on the right track if they did decide to at least announce the development of two new-ish graphics cards at this year’s Computex show. And if the word ‘super” is any indication, we’re at least in for an interesting press conference to say the least
