10:58AM EDT – Welcome GPU watchers to every other GTC spring keynote

10:59AM EDT – We are right here reporting from the relief of our personal houses on the most recent in NVIDIA information from an important of the corporate’s GTC keynotes

10:59AM EDT – GTC Spring, which used to only be *the* GTC, is NVIDIA’s conventional venue for giant bulletins of all kinds, and this 12 months must be no exception

11:00AM EDT – NVIDIA’s Ampere server GPU structure is 2 years outdated and arguably short of an replace. In the meantime the corporate additionally dropped a bomb remaining 12 months with the announcement of the Grace CPU, which might be nice to determine extra about

11:00AM EDT – And right here we cross

11:01AM EDT – For the primary time in rather some time, NVIDIA isn’t kicking issues off with a variant in their “I’m AI” movies

11:02AM EDT – As a substitute, we are getting what I am guessing is NV’s “digitial dual” in their HQ

11:02AM EDT – And here is Jensen

11:03AM EDT – And I spoke too quickly. Here is a new “I’m AI” video

11:04AM EDT – Those movies are arguably nearly dishonest at the moment. In earlier years NV has printed that they have got AI doing the tune composition and, in fact, the voiceover

11:06AM EDT – And again to Jensen. Discussing how AI is being utilized in biology and scientific fields

11:07AM EDT – None of this used to be conceivable a decade in the past
