Among the many events delayed or canceled due to the current coronavirus pandemic is NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference. After a false start, the spring event was rescheduled as an all-digital affair, centered around CEO Jensen Huang’s annual keynote. And with that keynote set to be broadcast on Thursday morning, the company has posted a short video teasing some of the new hardware we’re presumably going to see in the keynote.

In the video, titled “What’s Jensen been cooking”, Huang pulls out a rather heavy-looking 8 GPU baseboard from his oven, placing it on his kitchen counter. Calling it “the world’s largest graphics card”, the board has apparently “been cookin’ for a while.”

With no other context provided in the 27 second video, the board looks a great deal like an updated version of the baseboards used in NVIDIA’s DGX and HGX compute servers. And with NVIDIA’s next-generation compute architecture and GPU widely expected to be unveiled at the event, we are almost certainly looking at a server board full of NVIDIA’s next-gen accelerators.

No doubt we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more about this board and the GPUs on it come Thursday, where NVIDIA's keynote starts bright and early at 6am PT.

    The history of socialist revolutions holds lessons in how much inequality a society can sustain, before it collapses.

    Those with power and resources can exploit the free market for their beneficial and by thus they can make the free market less free, less open and less neutral for others, regulation takes place to prevent abuse of power in way that will make the market a non neutral arena. Thus the role of the regulator is to create a fair and balanced market for all participants.

    I'm still thinking about the trillions of dollars spent on stock repurchases over the years. What did the corporations have to show for it? Share price appreciation? Only to have it all blown away in the past few months (for those stocks that actually did appreciate - some just kept doing down, financial engineering be damned). So much for reinvestment, and so much for benefitting any but the select few well positioned to benefit from this corporate strip-mining.

    How can some random guy be gifted so much money by killing poor people and eating babies? It really makes me think.

    you can tell they cook a lot, tons of spatulas.

    because you don't want to run the dishwasher after every meal, but you also don't want to hand wash the spatula every time either because almost everything needs it.

    lol UHF jokes are the best jokes.

    Makes me depressed every time I think of how unavailable to watch this movie is where I live in this digital age of ours. Almost nobody has ever heard of it, especially 30ish years later.. *sigh*

    I watched in on DVD, about 15 years ago. I think you'd be disappointed. It's not as good as I remember it, from when I was a kid. Maybe it was my age or maybe it was the times, but humor has certainly evolved.
