Bible Verses of the Day

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. 25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. [1 Cor 9:24-27, ESV]

Nvidia is now worth more than Amazon thanks to the AI chip boom

It seems like an eternity ago, but as recently as 2020 Nvidia was widely regarded as a small-time tech company best known for building graphics cards for PC video games. But times are changing.

Nvidia’s stock price has gone from a low of almost $50 in 2020 to an all-time high of almost $750 — a roughly 15x increase in less than 5 years that briefly made it the fourth most valuable company in the US yesterday, ahead of Amazon and other major companies.

And it’s no secret that the monstrous surge in the company’s stock price is down to its AI chip business.

Nvidia pursues $30 billion custom chip opportunity with new unit

Nvidia is building a new business unit focused on designing bespoke chips for cloud computing firms and others, including advanced artificial intelligence (AI) processors, nine sources familiar with its plans told Reuters.

The dominant global designer and supplier of AI chips aims to capture a portion of an exploding market for custom AI chips and shield itself from the growing number of companies pursuing alternatives to its products.
