At an exclusive NVIDIA Computex 2018 press conference, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang revealed a slew of new computing products. But first, let us break your hearts and tell you upfront that he did not announce the long-awaited replacements for NVIDIA Pascal graphics cards…
But he did show off a number of interesting products, and we have the opportunity to take some pictures and videos of the new NVIDIA HGX-2, NVIDIA Drive Xavier, NVIDIA Drive Pegasus and NVIDIA Jetson Xavier!
We have more than 1.5 hours of videos in this article, and lots of pictures from the event, so grab a drink, sit back and enjoy!
The NVIDIA Computex 2018 Press Conference
As there are limited room, this is an invitation-only press conference at the Grand Hyatt Taipei.
What a crowd… 30 minutes before the NVIDIA Computex 2018 press conference kicks off!
Guess who’s here too?
Unbelievable – there was time to get a selfie with Jensen himself before the press conference
He seemed to have a good time tossing cookies to members of the media.
Alright… now, let’s get to the actual press conference, which lasted over 1.5 hours and was punctuated by several emergency sirens!

If you are looking for news on NVIDIA Turing – the next GeForce – skip to minute 13:02 of the Q&A session video. This was what Jensen said :
When is the next GeForce? I’m going to invite you guys. Don’t worry!
No only will you be invited, there will probably be lunch.
A little hint? It’s a long time from now. It’s a long time from now.
In the next page, we have the blow-by-blow account of Jensen’s announcements, as well as pictures. In the meantime, here are our video tour of some of the new NVIDIA products the Jensen just revealed.
The NVIDIA Jetson Xavier Up Close!
The NVIDIA Jetson Xavier is a new deep learning computer designed for intelligent machines, e.g. robots. It delivers 30 teraflops of performance in a small form factor. The developer’s kit will see an early release in August 2018, with a price of US$ 1,299.
The NVIDIA Drive Xavier + Drive Pegasus Up Close!
Both NVIDIA Drive Xavier and NVIDIA Drive Pegasus use the new NVIDIA Xavier SoC – the world’s largest System-On-Chip, with 9 billion transistors!
The Drive Xavier uses a single Xavier SoC, with 30 teraflops of computing performance. The Drive Pegasus, on the other hand, has two Xavier SoCs and two Tesla V100 GPUs, with a total computing performance of 280 teraflops!
The NVIDIA HGX-2 Up Close!
The NVIDIA HGX-2 is a new architecture for hyperscale servers, delivering 1 petaflops on a single board, or 2 petaflops with two boards! Each HGX-2 board has eight Tesla V100 GPUs with 32 GB of HBM2 memory per module,
