NVIDIA to Utilize Intel’s Arizona Facilities For Its GPUs, Says CEO Jensen Huang

Mr. Jensen Huang, CEO of NVIDIA, has announced that the company would utilize Intel’s chip manufacturing facilities in Arizona to produce its semiconductor products. The statements were made by the CEO in an interview with CNBC, as his company rides the hype train after the enormous success of ChatGPT with the general public and businesses.

Mr. Huang’s CNBC interview touched on how his company’s early bet on AI and deep learning was met with skepticism from all quarters, including Wall Street. NVIDIA has gone a long way since then, and its technologies are now employed in places as diverse as ChatGPT, healthcare, and supercomputers.

NVIDIA’s morale has been bolstered by ChatGPT’s rising popularity just when the company needs the boost the most owing to the personal computer market’s vulnerability to the bad macroeconomic environment.

We had the good wisdom to go put the whole company behind it.

We saw early on, about a decade or so ago, that this way of doing software could change everything. And we changed the company from the bottom all the way to the top and sideways. Every chip that we made was focused on artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence is becoming more popular in Silicon Valley, driving massive demand for NVIDIA’s products. It is estimated that over 10,000 NVIDIA GPUs were utilised to train the ChatGPT model in its beta version. This is just the beginning, however; experts have also projected that a staggering 4.1 million NVIDIA GPUs would be needed to handle the computational demands if Google’s Search theoretically used ChatGPT.

Jensen also discussed international matters in his interview. The NVIDIA CEO said this when questioned by CNBC’s Katie Tarasov about TSMC’s role in the international chip supply chain:

The fact of the matter is TSMC is a really important company. And the world doesn’t have more than one of them. It is imperative upon ourselves and them, for them to also invest in diversity and redundancy.

Mr. Huang said, “oh absolutely, we’ll use Arizona,” in answer to Tasarov’s inquiry as to whether or not his company will use Intel’s facilities in Arizona for chip production. As part of its attempts to diversify its supply chain, TSMC is also constructing a chip facility in Arizona in the hope of receiving subsidies from the U.S. government; if the business is granted such subsidies, it will be prohibited from committing to advanced chipmaking factories in China.
