The particular technological conflict between the USA and China has escalated in recent months. On the one hand, Americans have asked their companies not to sell the highest-performing versions of their products; On the other hand, China has imposed various sanctions on US companies operating on its territory in an attempt to directly influence American economies. And while the singing voice is carried by North Americans, all indications are that that possibility could change in the coming months. As countries like South Korea wait for war to develop between the two territories, the United States and China have learned that they cannot rest on their laurels. Because of this, the various affected companies in China have opted to, due to the US imposition, develop their own chip technology for artificial intelligence, an option that gives them some independence from NVIDIA products. And apparently that possibility is already on the horizon, as Huawei would have a GPU-like unit to train the world’s most powerful AI.
America’s fears come true
As reported by the French portal JeuxVideo, Jensen Huang (current NVIDIA CEO) was one of the first to predict that China would not sit idly by. In the past, Huang has claimed that Asians are increasingly trying to emulate the US chip industry. Today, after sharing his thoughts, it seems that China is making massive investments in this area, which is why many of his companies are already focusing on finding ways to emulate the virtues of North American entities.
Chinese companies looking to develop AI-powered graphics cards include Moore Threads and Biren Technology. They took gaming GPUs as a base and worked to adapt them to artificial intelligence. In return, other companies such as Denglin AI, Extensive AI technology, and MetaX design entirely new graphics cards that bring artificial intelligence to life from the ground up. Be that as it may, China has made a move, and in the coming months and years, its AI chip industry will see very strong growth, a possibility that could outpace the current five-year lag they are suffering.
