CES does not even officially start until today, but Nvidia’s presentation on the Sunday preceding the conference has been considered the true “kick-off” event for a few years now. Nvidia has made a tradition of kicking off the event with a high-energy press conference packed with big news. In recent years, it has debuted the DRIVE PX AI automotive computing platform, the SHIELD game-streaming platform, and several self-driving car partnerships—all in front of the massive crowd in Las Vegas.
This year, CEO Jensen Huang took the stage to update us on all of these products—and much more. Nvidia has now added Uber to its growing list of self-driving car partners, and we are apparently getting a new DRIVE chip this quarter. On the gaming side, the company announced a high-end display tailored to gamers and revealed that its game-streaming service will launch in an open beta soon.
Investors loved these announcements, and Nvidia shares surged on Monday. A post-CES run is actually becoming a trend for NVDA, as Ryan proves by looking at the stock’s recent performance in the wake of the event.
