NVIDIA'S Invention of the GPU

In 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

NVIDIA pioneered accelerated computing to tackle challenges no one else can solve. Today, our work in AI is transforming 100 trillion dollars of industries—from gaming to healthcare to transportation—and profoundly impacting society.
