CES 2017: NVIDIA Highlights

  1. 1. CES 20I7
  2. 2. 2 [ TITLE ] “ NVIDIA carried itself like a company that knows it has entered its golden age. The flurry of keynote address announcements made by CEO Jen-Hsun Huang to a large and approving audience showed that the company remains focused on heading off its many rivals by building upon the product lines and technology initiatives that served it so well in 2016.” —The Street
  3. 3. 3 “ Jen-Hsun Huang, the godfather of AI, rocked Las Vegas with his 2017 CES preshow keynote speech, and is emerging to be the world’s first AI giant.” — DeepTech “ NVIDIA is at the intersection of key, changing dynamics in the tech industry, notably AI and deep learning and their respective roles in pushing home entertainment and in fueling next-generation autonomous vehicles.” — USA Today Our work at NVIDIA centers on a computing model focused on visual and AI computing. Built on top of the GPU that we pioneered, this computing model can solve problems that normal computing simply can’t.
  4. 4. “ NVIDIA is looking to level the playing field at CES 2017, opening the floodgate for budget gamers by finally officially offering laptop support with GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti cards.” — TechRadar PC gaming is thriving and GeForce is PC gaming. For the fast-growing market of gaming notebooks, we launched GeForce GTX 1050, which was adopted in a record 30 designs. We also added to our lineup of 60 G-SYNC monitors and laptops with the world’s first 4K HDR G-SYNC monitors. “ NVIDIA’s first HDR G-SYNC monitors are basically the holy grail of PC displays” — PC World
  5. 5. “ Thanks to NVIDIA, you’ll soon be able to stream tons of games to Facebook Live… which could help make Facebook Live a bona fide platform for esports and friendly game streaming… this is the most robust gaming option to come to the platform yet.” — Gizmodo To fuel gaming as a social medium, we announced that the GeForce Experience application will connect directly to Facebook’s 1.8 billion monthly active users. We showcased the technology with never-before-seen gameplay from Mass Effect: Andromeda.
  6. 6. “ Being able to play The Witcher 3 on such an underpowered (MacBook Air) system is intriguing enough, but I was also surprised by how well it ran. It looked as if I was playing the game in 1080p with ‘Ultra’-quality settings locally, and not streamed from some super-powered server.” — Engadget We estimate that there are 1 billion new or infrequent gamers whose PCs are not ready for today’s games. To serve this large market, we announced that the GeForce NOW game streaming service is now available for Macs and PCs. “ If you have a solid internet connection, you could play all of the hottest current titles on your six-year-old laptop or whatever.” — PC World
  7. 7. “ NVIDIA’s New SHIELD Just Became the Best Streaming Box You Can Buy” — BGR “ NVIDIA SHIELD runs circles around the Apple TV and Roku Ultra when it comes to its capabilities.” — Tom’s Guide With the addition of Amazon Video in 4K HDR, the new SHIELD offers the largest, most open catalog of media in stunning 4K — also supporting Netflix, YouTube and Google Play Movies. SHIELD, which boasts more than 1,000 games, is also the first Android device to integrate Steam. “ SHIELD leaves other streamers in the dust.” — PC Gamer
  8. 8. “ Roll the SHIELD TV and SPOT together, and NVIDIA is packing a powerful punch in the connected home.” — Fox Business “ It’s a high-end entertainment and smart home hub that has the potential to make your life easier, especially when paired with the upcoming SPOT.” — Tom’s Guide We also advanced SHIELD to bring AI into the home. SHIELD will now support Google Assistant hands-free as well as SmartThings — turning it into a smart home hub that can connect to hundreds of devices. And SPOT, an AI mic, extends intelligent control throughout the house.
  9. 9. 9 “ CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced his company’s plan to turn your car into ‘your most personal robot.’ Specifically, NVIDIA announced the company's AI car supercomputer, Xavier — an auto-grade, 512-core Volta GPU and AI platform that’s capable of learning how to drive by watching a human driver.” — Engadget Autonomous vehicles hold enormous promise to modernize the $10 trillion transportation system, but they require an enormous amount of AI computing power. Our AI car supercomputer, Xavier, can reach 30 trillion operations per second of deep learning in just 30 watts.
  10. 10. 10 “ It is a fully realized, near-fully automated self-driving car that works today. And as unnerving and as foreign as it is to be driven around in BB8, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is the future of driving — and it’s coming far sooner than you might think.” — Ars Technica
  11. 11. 11 “ NVIDIA’s Self-Driving Cars will Help You Drive Better, Too” — The Verge With AI Co-Pilot, even if the car’s not driving for you, it can be looking out for you — alerting you to dangerous situations on the road as well as recognizing your identity, knowing where you’re looking and reading your lips to understand your commands in noisy situations. ANNOUNCING AI CO-PILOT “ NVIDIA Built an AI Backseat Driver for its New AI Car Platform” — Engadget
  12. 12. At CES, we announced a series of new partnerships to build out our platform and accelerate the race to self-driving cars. With long-time partner Audi, we announced that we’ll achieve Level 4 autonomous driving in production cars no later than 2020. We also announced that cars from Mercedes-Benz will incorporate products built with NVIDIA within a year. Bosch and ZF, the No. 1 and No. 5 tier 1 auto suppliers, respectively, have adopted the DRIVE PX car computer. And we added ZENRIN and HERE to our recent announcements of Baidu and TomTom for HD mapping. “ NVIDIA is Helping Mercedes Build Artificially Intelligent Cars Too” — Engadget “ Driverless Cars Need Smarter Brains, so ZF and NVIDIA Created ProAI” — Digital Trends “ Audi is Using NVIDIA Tech to Bring Self-Driving Cars to Market by 2020” — Fortune “ NVIDIA has also lined up auto tech supplier Bosch to adopt the NVIDIA computing platform for autonomous vehicles.” — USA Today “ NVIDIA Working with Digital Mapmakers HERE and ZENRIN” — CNET
