Fast chips – level 3

22-03-2024 07:00

Nvidia, a leading chipmaker, showcased its newest AI chip, the B200, at its annual developer conference, signaling its intent to maintain its supremacy in the AI industry.

The B200 chip, announced by CEO Jensen Huang in Silicon Valley, promises to be 30 times faster at certain tasks compared to its predecessors. Huang also introduced new software tools aimed at simplifying the sale of AI models for developers, potentially benefiting companies reliant on Nvidia’s technology. Despite the innovative announcements, Nvidia’s stock experienced a slight decline, suggesting the updates didn’t excite investors as expected. Moreover, Nvidia is transitioning from selling individual chips to offering comprehensive systems, which could redefine its market strategy amidst growing competition and the self-reliance trend among its largest clients.

However, industry analysts forecast a minor dip in Nvidia’s market share in 2024 due to emerging rivals and the in-house chip production efforts of major tech firms.

Difficult words: supremacy (the state of being the most powerful or superior), predecessor (a thing that has come before), dip (decrease).
