Nvidia plans to enter the ASIC market

From the composition of NVIDIA’s financial report, cloud inference is expected to gradually replace cloud training to meet demand, and with the expansion of cloud smart computing centres, the demand for network products is expected to grow faster; NVIDIA plans to enter the ASIC market to reduce competition with customers’ self-developed chips, maintain its absolute leading market share, and accumulate experience and customer base for long-term computing chip cost reduction. In addition, cooperation with SoftBank, Ericsson, and other telecom base station businesses is expected to open up the edge computing market. Overall, the company continues to explore new customer groups and market space while consolidating its existing business foundation, laying a solid foundation for long-term growth.

There is a huge demand for data centre

NVIDIA’s revenue growth is accelerating, and data centre demand is far from peaking. The accelerated revenue growth of the company reflects the surge in global customer demand for computing power. With the accelerated iteration of large models such as Sora and Gemini1.5, and the promotion of commercial applications based on large models, it indirectly confirms that the demand for computing power is expected to continue after 2024. The company’s position as a global leader in AI chips is solid, and with the development of accelerated computing and AIGC, the company is expected to continue to benefit.
