It's not just announcement season for E3: Computex and the Global Technology Conference are just around the corner, too. It's the latter that's the first cab off the rank, and NVIDIA are kicking things off with their keynote for the annual conference in Taiwan.
NVIDIA don't tend to go into super big detail about new products at GTC, but they have hinted or done short announcements for their gaming line before. And if the company is going to release a new line of GPUs specifically for cryptocurrency, GTC isn't a bad place to do it either.
Last year, NVIDIA's GTC keynote touched on life after Moore's Law, the future of GPU computing, CUDA development, deep learning and AI in general. Beyond that, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed off the Tesla V100 - which cost about $US3 billion in R&D - as well as some Final Fantasy XIV: Kingsglaive cinematics.
So it's not a gaming conference, first and foremost. But it's always worth a watch to see where GPUs are headed more broadly. You can check it out via Facebook below:

Or NVIDIA Taiwan's official Twitch channel, if that's more reliable:
GTC Taiwan is immediately followed by Computex, which I'll be covering next week. We're expecting a whole bunch of new gaming laptops, some GPU announcements and plenty of new peripherals to boot. It's gonna be a busy June.
