The biggest electronics convention in the world has officially been rescheduled. Like many events this year, Computex is also facing delays due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Already, big tech events and conferences such as the Game Developers Conference (GDC), Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) and E3 2020 have either been delayed, canceled, or switched to an online-only format.
When Will Computex Take Place?
Computex has been rescheduled to September 28th which is the second time this event has had to be rescheduled – the first time was interestingly due to the SARS outbreak in 2003.
Computex was due to take place in June in Taipei, Taiwan which reports suggest has recently begun to experience another flare-up in COVID-19 cases.
A few manufacturers asked organizers to rethink the event and delay it which Computex organizers finally agreed to. They announced the delay through a press release that it would be pushed back to September.
What Can We Expect From Computex This Year?
A lot of people aren’t quite sure what to expect this year as everything has been delayed. Planned events, talks and brand new product and game launches have all been moved back.
Judging by what we saw at Computex 2019 last year and what manufacturers have been getting up to over the past few months, Computex 2020 should see some huge announcements.
We’re expecting to see AMD’s “Nvidia Killer” graphics card, otherwise known as Big Navi make a show at Computex. There’s also a chance Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 series could make an appearance at Computex too. However, we should know more about that when we hear what Nvidia is planning regarding their postponed GTC event.
While nothing seems to be certain right now, we will be following the news about Computex very closely. The moment we hear an update and more information about what to expect from this event, we will keep you posted. The same goes for any other technology and gaming events we think you’ll want to know about.
