NVIDIA Editor's Day 2014 - Events, Parties, and Lots of Fun

NVIDIA entertained the world's technology press for the launch of its next-generation Maxwell GPUs, but in between all of the business, was lots of fun.

Introduction

NVIDIA hosted some of the world's top media last week in Monterey Bay, California, where I was invited to join in the fun. The event was to showcase the company's new Maxwell architecture, with the launch of two new GPUs: the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970. Included in this event, were some activities, parties, and much more.

Before it all kicked off, I met up with some friends that were also attending: Dmitry from Hardware Canucks, Sid from Digit, and I finally got to meet Linus from LinusTechTips. We walked the harbor, deciding to jump on a sail boat to check out the sites.

It was quite the trip, as I've never done something like that before (I've been on much bigger boats, but nothing that... personal, before).

Toward the end of this video, you can see that one side of the boat was low enough to the water that I could simply reach out and touch it.

Just some sea lions, chilling.

Linus doing the Leonardo DiCaprio from Titanic, with hilarious results.

Linus' video shows his perspective of this event, toward the beginning of the video (around 52 seconds in).

Another look at the sail boat.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
