    I'm expecting them to duck, dodge and dive around the topics of price and raw rasterization performance for consumer GPUs, hope I'm wrong would be nice to get some straight answers

    What is "Get Amped"? Putting a finger in a light socket and switching on?

    Got to be honest, it would be nice to see the prices come down this time (please be decent competition AMD, I'm stuck with Nvidia due to cuda)... sadly I just can't see it happening, in fact I'm expecting even higher prices.

    They may increase prices to drop them down when AMD / Intel catch up.
    I am on 1080TI and i am happy with the performance as for now, yet i would be happy if i could update it with ~30% boost in performance for less than 500$.
    I guess i need to wait until 5xxx

    Here's hoping someone can take the AMD hardware design and make it work with CUDA. The market disruption from that would be hilarious.

    And yes, I will not buy Nvidia, so I'm hoping AMD are competitive. My Vega64 may get kept for compute but the problem is that AMD seem to know as much about writing drivers as I do.

    Very little.

    EDIT: I love that bottom photo of the prat in the leather jacket. He's a business nerd, not a rock star. You've got someone shaking hands, someone star struck and then out of your eyeline you have the normal people. Front right is suspicious and smirking at the leather, behind him is not amused, behind him..... they're so enthralled they're on their phones.

    "Get Amped" its teen language for get exited,,,,,, which it would seem in this day and age mean screaming and arms and legs flailing.
    What we Sane people call a seizure or a tantrum.

    I want Nvidia to show what they got too, but that's also it.

    I'd settle for someone bringing opencl up to feature parity... some of the software I use can actually use opencl or cuda but cuda has more 'features' and overall performs better..

    Probably as much about them trying to be hip while also trying to link it with ampere (ie rtx 3xxx) for the 'nerds'

    I'm glad to hear about these, but the pricing of GPUs has me concerned. I was hoping to buy one, but I've actually spent less time console/pc gaming recently oddly enough.

    Re: 'Get Amped' for the Nvidia GTC keynote on 14th May

    If they actually cared about AI then they would release a pure Tensor card. I can see how Nvidia want to push those compute units onto a GPU for consumer cards, but in a server why would anyone want those graphics cores wasting die space?

    Re: 'Get Amped' for the Nvidia GTC keynote on 14th May

    May could be a really nice month for tech.

    Finally some 10th gen 13" laptops with a sensible power envelope & dGPU - Surface Book 3 should be announced, plus we have the 2020 Razer stealth and there are rumours of huawei & asus reading new Matebooks & Zenbooks to compete too. Would be nice.

    Nvidia could finally announce the 3000 series, which is good as I feel my 2080 could do with an upgrade later this year.

    Sony could finally get around to releasing the Xperia 1 ii - proving that it's possible to make a flagship smartphone in 2020 without a hole in the screen

    All good stuff really. May should be an interesting month

    "Get Amped" means drug use, amphetamines to be exact. Not a good slogan at all haha.

    Who cares tbh if it ends up costing an arm & a leg, might as well develop a quantum computer for gaming with liquid helium cooling.

    Nvidia has some brand damage it needs to address after Turing prices imho.

    AI, high performance computing, data science, autonomous machines, healthcare and graphics

    In other words, most likely related to the Tesla/Quadro line of products and not Geforce.

    Do you think the release date of their next gen cards will be much later following the keynote? But yeah definitely expect them to avoid mentioning price etc and wait for amd to say something first, they're probably thinking the same though so could be interesting.
