    New GPU architecture features as NVIDIA announces major new software applications, new hardware systems and a partnership with BMW.


    NVIDIA today set out a vision for the next generation of computing that shifts the focus of the global information economy from servers to a new class of powerful, flexible data centers.

    In a keynote delivered in nine simultaneously released episodes recorded from the kitchen of his California home, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang discussed NVIDIA’s recent Mellanox acquisition, new products based on the company’s much-awaited NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture and important new software technologies.

    Original plans for the keynote to be delivered live at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference in late March in San Jose were upended by the coronavirus pandemic.

    Huang kicked off his keynote on a note of gratitude.

    “I want to thank all of the brave men and women who are fighting on the front lines against COVID-19,” Huang said.

    NVIDIA, Huang explained, is working with researchers and scientists to use GPUs and AI computing to treat, mitigate, contain and track the pandemic. Among those mentioned:

    Oxford Nanopore Technologies has sequenced the virus genome in just seven hours.
    Plotly is doing real-time infection rate tracing.
    Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Scripps Research Institute have screened a billion potential drug combinations in a day.
    Structura Biotechnology, the University of Texas at Austin and the National Institutes of Health have reconstructed the 3D structure of the virus’s spike protein.
