Nvidia Unveils New AI Products, Including a Supercomputer

Nvidia unveiled an array of new AI-related products during a weekend conference in Taiwan, including a new supercomputer and equipment to make online gaming characters more realistic. CEO Jensen Huang called it the “tipping point of a new computing era.” Nvidia stock was rising in Tuesday’s premarket and was just under $1 trillion in market value.

  • Huang introduced the DGX GH200, a large-memory AI supercomputer platform, used to help developers build big language models for AI chatbots, according to a company blog post. Alphabet’s Google, Meta Platforms, and Microsoft will be first to use it.
  • DGX represents an attempt to hook data-center operators on Nvidia’s products, Bloomberg reported. Nvidia is offering equipment for data centers and building its own supercomputers for customers to use, including two new supercomputers in Taiwan, the report said.
  • AI supercomputer Nvidia Helios will come online this year and use four DGX GH200 systems to help supercharge data for training big AI models, Huang said. On the cloud front, he introduced Nvidia Spectrum-X, a networking platform available from Dell Technologies, Lenovo, and Supermicro.
  • In gaming, Nvidia’s Avatar Cloud Engine offers foundry services that developers can use to build custom AI models for speech, conversation, and animation. The idea is to give background characters in games more personality.

What’s Next: Nvidia arranged with U.K. advertising firm WPP to develop a content engine that uses generative AI and the metaverse for digital advertising, including videos and 3-D experiences for web devices.
