Nicole Scott of Netbook News is on the ground for us again and this time she is at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose.

In this video we were able to get a few minutes with NVIDIA chap Dan Vivoli, a senior VP at the GPU firm, who gave us a solid run-down of the events that occurred yesterday at Day 1 of the GTC. He starts off by saying that this year there are about twice as many attendees from a range of different countries.

As far as technology goes, CUDA and GPUs is a big thing. Certain scientific software, medical software, mechanical software and content creation software with 3ds Max are all now GPU enabled with hardware acceleration. Dan is excited by this fact since now the 'four largest industry applications' are now fully covered with NVIDIA GPU acceleration. This is pretty big news for the green team.

There were plenty of other things announced, discussed and showcased at Day 1 of GTC 2010. Watch the video above for the full four minute or so run-down of events. More to come!
