NVIDIA CES 2022 Special Address

Jan. 4, 2022
MAX-Q is a laptop hardware design framework, plus there's a new NVIDIA DRIVE framework.

Check out our CES 2022 coverage.

NVIDIA's keynote speakers include Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President GeForce,  and Ali Kani, Vice President and General Manager Automotive. They deliver a fast-paced presentation that covers everything graphics-wise from laptops to cars. 

One major announcement is NVIDIA's Max-Q that targets the company's GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs for laptops. This includes the RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti laptop GPUs, which are designed to deliver more performance as well as ray-tracing support (see figure). The RTX 3080 Ti supports 16 GB of the fastest GDDR6 available. 

Ali Kani talks about NVIDIA's 8th-generation DRIVE Hyperion hardware/software platform that's being using by Mercedes-Benz. It targets self-driving cars. The platform has multiple Orin computers plus a dozen surround cameras, nine radar sensors, a dozen ultrasonic sensors, a front-facing LiDAR, and three interior cameras.
