This development comes in the midst of the race to develop the most powerful artificial intelligence chips to create high-level artificial intelligence systems.
Nvidia is currently the market leader when it comes to chip development and the power of the chips it has made possible. Earlier this year, the company was briefly valued at $1 trillion amid the AI craze.
While Nvidia remains at the head of the chip development pile, it has recently come under scrutiny by authorities in France in an antitrust investigation. Local police raided Nvidia’s offices after French antitrust authorities conducted a public investigation into the cloud computing sector.
Following the events in France, on October 2, the European Commission said that EU antitrust regulators had not opened a formal investigation into AI chips, according to Reuters. a report.
In the United States, regulators have been actively pushing for control of the industry and issued a ban on the export of high-level Nvidia technology to China in October 2022. They have also tightened measures in recent months. Nvidia is a US company and therefore subject to US regulations and restrictions.
The United States also recently struck a deal with Vietnam, China’s traditional trading partner and former US adversary, worth billions of dollars regarding AI chips and AI technology.
