Nvidia, the world’s most valuable chip maker, is riding the wave of generative AI that turns anyone into a programmer with a new batch of AI-centric products.
Nvidia has unveiled new supercomputers and network systems, but the company is also aiming to make video game characters more realistic.
Its wide range of products includes robot design, gaming functions, advertising services and network technology, CEO Jensen Huang revealed during a two-hour presentation in Taiwan on Monday.

The most notable of the new products is an AI supercomputer platform named DGX GH200 that will help tech companies develop successors to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
According to the company, the new DGX GH200 supercomputer combines 256 GH200 superchips that can act as a single graphics processing unit (GPU). The result is a system that boasts nearly 500 times more memory than his single Nvidia DGX A100 system.
“Generative AI, large language models, and recommender systems are the digital engines of the modern economy,” Huang said.
“The DGX GH200 AI supercomputer integrates Nvidia’s cutting-edge accelerated computing and networking technologies to expand the frontiers of AI.”
So far, Microsoft Corp., Meta Platforms Inc., and Alphabet’s Google are expected to be the first users, according to Nvidia.
of DGX GH200 The supercomputer is expected to be available by the end of 2023.
The GH200 superchip powering the new supercomputer works by combining Nvidia’s Arm-based Grace GPU and Nvidia H100 Tensor Core GPU into a single package.
The company also revealed that it is building its own supercomputer to run four DGX 200 systems simultaneously to power its own research.
Nvidia has also released an ACE-generated AI model for video games. This would allow game companies to use generative AI for large-scale games featuring multiple non-player his characters, with their own dialogue and ways to interact with players that would normally have to be individually programmed.

Easy-to-understand ad content
Alongside the hardware announcement, the company announced that it has partnered with advertising giant WPP to develop a content engine that uses omniverse technology and generative AI capabilities to help build advertising content.
The move aims to reduce the time and cost of ad production by allowing WPP’s clients to leverage Nvidia’s technology.
Electronics manufacturers such as Foxconn, Pegatron, and Wistron are using Omniverse technology to create digital twins of their factory floors, helping them understand how best to lay them out before making any physical changes.
new computing era
Presented in forum, Huang acknowledged that advances in AI are ushering in a new era of computing. He says that anyone can become a programmer just by speaking into a computer.
Gone are the days when programmers would write a line of code and see a “failed to compile” response due to a missing semicolon, according to Nvidia officials.
“This computer doesn’t care how you program it. It has an incredibly large language model capability, so it tries to make sense of you. So the programming barrier is It’s incredibly low,” Huang said.
“We have closed the digital divide. Everyone is a programmer.
Huang said the company has successfully bridged the digital divide and that the tech giant will continue to capitalize on the AI frenzy that has made NVIDIA one of the world’s most valuable chip makers.
Nvidia stock is on the rise
Nvidia’s major announcement came alongside the tech giant’s stock price. jumped off About the news the company expected last week second quarter earnings It beat Wall Street expectations based on the strength of its data center business.
The company hit a $1 trillion market cap just before the U.S. market opened on Tuesday. The company’s stock is trading at $407 in the open market. up nearly 5% from monday.
Nvidia shares are up more than 165% year-to-date as of Friday afternoon, while the S&P 500 (^GSPC) is up just 9.5% in the same range.
Rival chip maker AMD experienced a similar rally in its stock, up 93%. But Intel (INTC) has lagged behind, with its stock gaining just 8%.
According to Yahoo Finance technical editors Daniel HowleyAnalysts see Nividia as far ahead of rival chips in AI processing, but who knows how long that will last.
