NVIDIA holds off GTC announcements

Huang: This is a time to focus on our family, our friends, our community.

NVIDIA will not be making any product or news announcements next week, according to a NVIDIA blogpost.

In that post, NVIDIA Chief Executive Officer Jensen Huang pointed out that the company has exciting products and news to share but this isn’t the right time.

“We’re going to hold off on sharing our GTC news for now. That way, our employees, partners, the media and analysts who follow us, and our customers around the world can focus on staying safe and reducing the spread of the virus,” he said.

NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference was scheduled to take place in San Jose next week. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the company moved the conference online with the keynote address which is usually packed with announcements by Huang.

However, this latest development means that the keynote will not take place.

Instead, Huang noted that the company will still stream tons of great content from researchers and developers who have prepared great talks.

“This is a time to focus on our family, our friends, our community. Our employees are working from home. Many hourly workers will not need to work but they’ll all be fully paid. Stay safe everyone. We will get through this together,” he said.
