This story is part of our coverage of Computex, the world’s biggest computing conference.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang will make the company’s Computex keynote address this weekend and is scheduled to discuss “advanced developments in the fields of accelerated computing and artificial intelligence.” That AI will feature in the address is no surprise, but whether that will mean we’re going to learn about new graphics cards or AI hardware from Nvidia remains to be seen.

Regardless of what Huang actually ends up talking about, though, the keynote is set to be one of the biggest of the Computex show. That’s despite it taking place before the show has even started. Here’s how to watch the Nvidia keynote at Computex, so you don’t miss any of it.

Nvidia’s keynote will take place early in the U.S., at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT on June 2, as it’ll actually begin at 7 p.m. local time in Taiwan. If you were planning to attend in person, you’ve unfortunately missed the boat to register, but you can watch along with the live stream like the rest of us — or watch it later after you wake up. We wouldn’t blame you.

Although there will be plenty of third-party streams covering the keynote, the most straightforward and distraction-free way to watch is viaNvidia’s official stream on its YouTube channel. Nvidia hasn’t announced a Twitch cast of the event at this time, so it’s potentially a YouTube exclusive.

Nvidia has been especially quiet regarding what we can look forward to hearing about at this event, though there are some clear signals that Nvidia will make AI a major focus. It’s been pushing AI as a keystone of its company plans for years now, first with self-driving cars, and more recently with powering the servers behind chatbots like ChatGPT.

Nvidia’s GPUs and their tensor cores are finding their way into all sorts of AI-driven applications, and it’s continued to push AI at the local level through its RTX Video and its own Chat with RTX chatbot.

We’re expecting Nvidia to highlight how its hardware and software is finding its way to the heart of many modern AI platforms. We may see some new updates for GeForce Now, or learn about how AI is being used to power NPCs in video games. Perhaps DLSS will get another update.

Nvidia even teased an AI in games feature related to an April Fool’s Joke from seven years ago.

There have been rumors we’ll see the new Blackwell series of GPUs announced, but that seems more likely to take place toward the end of the year. We wouldn’t get our hopes up for new hardware at the event, but you never know.
