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 more you buy, the more you save

    Its an old fashioned gas hob though.

    If you like to cook, you want gas hob or induction (gas if you have a bunch of nice cookware already, induction if you can afford to or want to swap out for induction-safe cookware). Everything else sucks in comparison.

    He actually said "largest video card".

    "largest graphics card".

    I think it's missing some *kinda* important connectors to qualify as a graphics card.

    Tired though the old saying may be, it just might not be a graphics card, if it can't play Crysis.

    It can probably play thousand of Crisies and stream they away ;-)
  • mode_13h - Wednesday, May 13, 2020 - link

    Calling it *a* graphics card implies that all 8 GPUs should function as one. If they don't then it's not *a* graphics card.

    Please don't make me explain his joke... :P
