Nvidia will be joining some of the biggest names in the PC industry at Computex this year. As with recent conferences during the global pandemic, the weeklong Computex show in Taipei will be a virtual event that will allow PC fans to catch some of the biggest trends, news and announcements from their living room. Nvidia’s presence at Computex should wow gaming fans, and likely any new graphics cards Nvidia announced at Computex will find their way into pre-built systems that could be featured at the show.
The company announced that its keynote address, scheduled for Computex opening day on June 1, local time – or 31st. ”If you want to keep up with the latest from Nvidia, we’ll show you how you can be there live.
Here’s how to watch Nvidia’s Computex keynote
Nvidia’s keynote speech is scheduled for Tuesday, June 1st, 1:00 p.m. Taipei time. US players wishing to watch live must tune in at 10:00 p.m. PT on Monday, May 31st. The company announced in its press release that the keynote will appear under the heading of Jeff Fisher, GeForce’s senior vice president, CEO Jensen Huang will not appear to be performing at Computex, at least not on stage.
The keynote will be broadcast live and fans can follow the speech on Nvidia’s YouTube channel. At the time of going to press, there was no direct link to the Computex keynote available, but we will embed the video link at the top of this post as soon as we have this information. Another resource is the Computex portal on the Nvidia website.
The Nvidia keynote will be divided into two sections, announced the Computex organizers. The first part focuses on Fisher’s presentation “of the vast possibilities GeForce PC gaming offers,” which suggests we are about to hear some great graphics news. The company has expanded its GeForce RTX 3000 family of graphics cards over the past few months.
The second part focuses on the enterprise market, artificial intelligence and machine learning. “Manuvir Das, Head of Enterprise Computing at Nvidia, will then speak about ‘The Coming Democratization of AI'”, said the organizers. “He will share three changes that are driving this trend and how companies that embrace them can thrive in the years to come.”

What you can expect from Nvidia at Computex
Given the company’s focus on GeForce and gaming for its keynote, we can probably expect Nvidia to expand its GeForce RTX 3000 family. Fisher’s presence at the Computex keynote could look promising to gamers hoping for new graphics cards from the company, given what we saw from the executive at Nvidia’s CES virtual presentation earlier this year. It was Fisher who presented the RTX 3060 alongside mobile RTX 3000 cards for laptops at CES.
While Nvidia focused more on the entry-level segment at CES, we expect the company to focus on premium gaming at Computex. Rumors have been circulating lately about Nvidia’s unannounced GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti cards, and these GPUs could likely make a debut on the Computex stage.
In addition to new GeForce RTX cards, Nvidia could also use its stage time to address the ongoing semiconductor shortage and recent efforts to ensure its GPUs are accessible to gamers. The company, like rival AMD, has come under fire in recent months for cryptocurrency miners and scalpers hoarding graphics cards, causing secondary market prices to skyrocket to three times the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Nvidia recently made efforts to curb the appeal of its GPUs by limiting their effectiveness at Ethereum mining.
