Even though the 2021 edition of CES will be an entirely virtual affair due to the ongoing coronoavirus pandemic, a number of major companies have still been lining up to schedule presentations as part or around the event. This has included Intel, AMD, and now NVIDIA, who today is announcing an event for January 12th.

Dubbed “GeForce RTX: Game On”, the broadcasted event will be presented by Jeff Fisher, NVIDIA’s Senior VP for GeForce. NVIDIA has set aside an hour for their CES-adjacent presentation, which will kick off at 9am Pacific on January 12th, 2021.

Today’s reveal is little more than a hold the date teaser, with NVIDIA promising to “unveil the latest innovations in gaming and graphics.” And while the company isn’t offering any more details than that, observationally we’ve seen that over the last several years NVIDIA has frequently used CES to announce new products and technologies. This goes particularly for laptop products, as CES has increasingly transformed into a laptop showcase for the PC OEMs. Fittingly, as NVIDIA continues its Ampere GPU release cadence with smaller and less power-hungry parts, the next chip expected to be released (GA106?) should be a good candidate for use in laptops.

One way or another, we’ll find out for sure next month with NVIDIA’s presentation. So stay tuned.

    Enjoy your genetic therapy, sir.

    "Pathogenic priming likely contributes to serious and critical illness and mortality in COVID-19 via autoimmunity"

    Enjoy your jab

    yea ok sure, i guess you believe the earth is flat too ?

    OK, I'll bite. Sigh. I went to the cdc.gov website, and of course, it appears they do not report total deaths for 2020, maybe because the year is not finished? Neither is 2019 there, maybe because the data is not yet fully in. 2018 is the latest full year available, which is the year you picked.

    The CDC chart you need to look at is here: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid19/excess_... It clearly shows the excess deaths.

    The John Hopkins research you quoted was from a staff member and was not peer reviewed or published, and has now been retracted because it was full of shitty errors. You can read more about the issues with it from John Hopkins themselves: https://www.jhunewsletter.com/article/2020/12/publ...

    In other words piss off with this rubbish.

    I won't even bother with your implication that there is something wrong with WHO changing their pandemic definitions in 2009 "to be ready for the 2020 COVID pandemic." That was when a lot of pandemic planning was going on, in the US and elsewhere, as the US president in 2009-17 was for some strange reason actually competent in planning for future disasters. In the UK, we had the same thing with Tony Blair and the guy after him. Of course in both countries this prep work got pissed away by various shiny-faced incompetents that followed them.

    One thing you are right about, there has been a lot of planning.

    BTW, do you know why there is never any inflation? Change of inflation computation approach in the Clinton era. It's just planning, you know.

    Is peer reviewed paper about mask inefficiency acceptable for you (from Annals of Internal Medicine)?
    Or Fauci's own words about Ct>35 only showing dead nucleotides?
    Or how about "Bacterial Pneumonia Caused Most Deaths in 1918 Influenza Pandemic", co-written by Fauci?
    Antibody-dependent enhancement? Pathogenic priming?

    How about thalidomide crisis which only reared its head 2 years after the drug was released for use?
    What about "Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine"?
    Bill Gates 2010 TED "Innovating to zero" with phrase like "Population is headed up to about 9 billion. If we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10-15%."

    This is nice:

    This is better:

    This is the best:

    You believe what you want to believe. Given historical precedent I do not believe in benevolent governments and sweet and fluffy pharma companies (biggest lobbyists in DC, bigger than MIC, big oil or banks).

    I suggest you take an anger management course as well.

    Am I anti-vaccination? No. I have been vaccinated.
    Am I covid-virus-denier? No, I am not.
    "Never let a good crisis go to waste". I like that one from Churchill.
    My favourite is Juncker's one: "We decide on something, leave it lying around and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don't understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back."

    oh shut up already.

    I am sorry dude for the terrible day that caused you to write that post, I really hope your days are better than that one. I can get in your argument and explain why is superficial, but It won't solve the issue. Your frustration comes from elsewhere, find it and your mood will improve.

    What they fail to mention is that people with underlying conditions are more likely to die from COVID-19. So maybe heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions may have been a factor but COVID-19 more often then not was partially responsible for those deaths.
