There’s quite a few things to unpack from NVIDIA’s Computex 2024 announcements here, though unsurprisingly, a lot of AI is involved here. Without further ado, let’s get into the important stuff.

Remember when NVIDIA jokingly announced a “new” product called NVIDIA GTX G-Assist? The premise is a dream to novice gamers – it’s supposed to help gamers who may be stuck in a certain stage of the game. That joke is now real under the name of “Project G-Assist“, which uses AI assistant technology to help gamers and users complete quests, or even check on system performance. It’s even designed to overclock your GPU with the Performance Tuning feature, and NVIDIA also envisions it as a “AI coach” that aims to help you get better in multiplayer matches.

Generative AI Gets A Big Push

NVIDIA’s Avatar Cloud Engine (ACE) is now available for cloud and RTX PCs with early access – think of it as a tool for game studios and companies alike to build virtual humans from the ground up. A lot of components are involved in this process, including speech recognition (Riva ASR), response generation (Nemotron LLM), audio-based facial animation (Audio2Face), and ray-traced skin and hair elements (Omniverse). NVIDIA is also announcing Audio2Gesture, responsible for generating body gestures based on audio, and a Nemotron SLM for consumer RTX systems.

SFF-Ready Program Kicks Off

For small form-factor (SFF) PC enthusiasts, this is big news – NVIDIA is partnering with AIB and case makers to simplify component choices via a new list of all compatible products on this webpage. All GPU and cases’ GPU dimensions are listed in three axes – simply make sure the case dimensions is larger than the GPU’s, and you’re all set.

NVIDIA App Gets New Update

Released earlier this year, the redesigned NVIDIA App supersedes both NVIDIA Control Panel and GeForce Experience app. The company announced that the new update will arrive on June 4th, 2024 at 6PM (Malaysian Time). In this update, users can now record videos in 120FPS via AV1 codec, and a one-click option is available to perform GPU tuning (which takes 10-20 minutes). The in-game overlay is improved as well, re-introducing the GPU power metric that was previously missing in the earlier version.
