Nvidia Reveals Its New Artificial Intelligence Chip At Annual Developer Conference


Nvidia rolled out its latest artificial intelligence (AI) chip, boasting a 30-fold increase in performance compared to its predecessor, at its annual developer conference in San Jose, California.

With an impressive 80% market share, the company is firm in its efforts to strengthen its position in the industry. Alongside the debut of the B200 “Blackwell” chip, CEO Jensen Huang introduced a suite of cutting-edge software tools.
