La IA impulsa a Nvidia hacia el club de élite del billón de dólares
May 26, 2023 - Las acciones de la diseñadora de semiconductores para computadoras Nvidia se han disparado, acercando la valoración de la firma a la marca de un billón de dólares cuando el frenesí por la inteligencia artificial impulsa la demanda de procesadores.
On May 25, shares soared 28%, to $392, making company worth over $950bn.
The surge was sparked by its latest quarterly results which were released late on May 24 and that were 53% higher than analysts projected.
Nvidia is now within touching distance of $1 trillion market value and it is poised to become only the ninth firm ever to hit that milestone.
Investors have singled out Nvidia as one of the big potential winners in AI, following the viral success of the ChatGPT chatbot and other popular tools. The company’s chips excel at parallel processing, which makes them well suited for training software by bombarding it with data.
ChatGPT was trained using 10,000 of Nvidia's graphics processing units (GPUs) clustered together in a supercomputer belonging to Microsoft.
