GT300 DX11 chips using 40nm process expected to be revealed

The inaugural GPU Technology Conference (GTC) will be hosted by NVIDIA over the next three days at the Fairmont San Jose. It replaces the company's NVISION love-in with a more formalized approach focusing on three tracks.

The Emerging Companies Summit is supposed to help start-ups that are basing their business models around GPU computing. They will have the opportunity to present their company to entrepreneurs and venture capitalists involved in the GPU computing ecosystem.

The GPU Developer Summit is the traditional series of technical presentations, tutorials and panels aimed at developers GPU-based computing applications. Advanced programming techniques using industry-standard languages such as C/C++ and Fortran will be covered, as well as the use of APIs such as Direct3D, DirectX Compute, OpenCL, and OpenGL.

The NVIDIA Research Summit is targeted at researchers and academics using GPUs in science and engineering research who are seeking information on how GPU computing can increase computational power and reduce time-to-discovery.

President and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will lead off the opening keynote at 1300 PST. He is expected to give an update on NVIDIA technology and reveal details about the GT300 series of 40nm DirectX 11 GPUs. The company is facing sales pressure from ATI after its launch of the Radeon HD 5800 series ahead of the Windows 7 launch.

GTC was originally supposed to be capped at 1000 attendees, but a NVIDIA spokesperson said that the total number of attendees will be almost 1500 due to "overwhelming demand".

“The GPU has quickly become one of the world’s most important processors,” stated Bill Dally, Chief Scientist at NVIDIA. “This event will bring together some of the brightest minds who will share the tools and techniques they used to leverage the enormous parallel processing power of the GPU.”

NVIDIA will be webcasting keynote speeches from its website. DailyTech will be providing coverage of the GTC, with the occasional update provided through Twitter.
