Nvidia Corp has forecast its Q2 revenue to be more than 50% above expectations, crediting strong demand for its AI chips, which are used to power chatbots, among other services. The announcement sent shares in the listed semiconductor company, which is worth over $950bn, soaring 28%. The new popularity of AI platforms led CEO Jensen Huang to disclose that Nvidia began full production of its latest AI chips in last August, enabling it to partially avoid chip shortages for apps like chatbots; full production supplies absorbed the steep new demand seen in January.
A Reuters review of over a hundred public government tenders found that while previously Chinese government authorities regularly put out purchase requests for Micron's chips for use in projects such as tax systems to surveillance networks, such requests dried up dramatically from 2020.
Intel said its forthcoming “Falcon Shores” chip will have 288 gigabytes of memory and support 8-bit floating point computation.
Nvidia is the world's top maker of graphics processing units (GPUs), which are in high demand because they can be used to speed up artificial intelligence work.
Meta Platforms on Thursday shared new details on its data center projects to better support artificial intelligence work, including a custom chip "family" being developed in-house.
The move brings additional muscle to the social media giant's bid to improve how its data centers handle AI work, as it races to cope with demand for AI-oriented infrastructure from teams across the company looking to build new features.
