Graphics hardware specialist Nvidia has chosen to postpone its GTC announcements.
As revealed in a blog post, CEO Jensen Huang said that “this isn’t the right time” due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“We have exciting products and news to share with you,” said Huang.
“But this isn’t the right time. We’re going to hold off on sharing our GTC news for now.
“That way, our employees, partners, the media and analysts who follow us, and our customers around the world can focus on staying safe and reducing the spread of the virus.”
Huang continued: “We will still stream tons of great content from researchers and developers who have prepared great talks.
“This is a time to focus on our family, our friends, our community. Our employees are working from home. Many hourly workers will not need to work but they’ll all be fully paid.
“Stay safe everyone. We will get through this together.”
Nvidia's GTC event was set to take place between Sunday, March 22nd and Thursday, March 26th at San Jose's McEnery Convention Center.
Recently, the firm’s new streaming platform GeForce now has seen some trouble as numerous publishers have pulled their games. Bethesda, 2K and Activision Blizzard are amongst the companies that removed their titles.
Due to the coronavirus, a number of events have been cancelled including two of the years biggest, GDC and E3. Other events to have been chopped include Minecraft Festival and Rezzed and Reboot Develop Blue.
