NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)’s forecast for surging revenue
surprised even the most bullish analysts on Wall Street, propelling the
chipmaker to the cusp of a $1 trillion market capitalization and igniting a
global jump in stocks linked to artificial intelligence.
The Santa Clara, California-based
company gained as much as 30% in US premarket trading, on course for a record
high, after saying it expects about $11 billion of sales in the three months

has advanced 14%, and Qualcomm shares have actually lost 3.6%.
The stock has even outperformed mighty Apple's (AAPL) 35% appreciation.

Monday brought news out of Germany, where
Reuters reported the company unveiled a new supercomputer in partnership with
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) at a supercomputing conference. The computer —
called Isambard 3 — is based on Nvidia's new high-powered Grace CPU chips.
The Grace CPU chips take aim at similar ones
offered by AMD and Intel.
Meantime, OpenAI's popular generative AI platform
ChatGPT was developed using Nvidia GPUs.
And at its GTC conference in March, Nvidia
showed off a host of solutions for training and deploying complex models
inherent to generative AI.
“We are seeing an acceleration in demand,” Nvidia
founder and CEO Jensen Huang said. “We’re seeing an acceleration of demand for
our DGX AI supercomputers. We’re seeing an acceleration of demand for
inference, because of generative AI.”
Wall Street's read is that Nvidia is a
"one-stop solution provider" for all things tied to the hot
generative AI movement, potentially leading to bumper profits well into the
"With leading silicon
(GPU/DPU/Networking), hardware/software platforms, and a strong ecosystem,
Nvidia is well-positioned to continue to benefit from major secular trends in
AI, high performance computing, gaming, and autonomous vehicles, in our
view," JP Morgan analyst Harlan Sur wrote in a research note.
Added Sur: "Bottom line: Nvidia continues
to be 1-2 steps ahead of its competitors in accelerated computing
silicon/systems, software, and ecosystems."

Executive Officer and co-founder Jensen Huang, Nvidia has positioned itself as
the top provider of components for training AI software. That’s helped it
weather a broader slowdown in technology spending.
Huang, Nvidia’s chief executive, said on Wednesday’s call with analysts that 15
years of investment and expanding production capability left Nvidia in the
right place at the right time when ChatGPT set off an even bigger investment
cycle by the world’s richest companies. “When generative AI came along, it
triggered a killer app for this computing platform that’s been in preparation
for some time,” he added. “With generative AI becoming the primary workload of
most of the world’s data centres generating information, it is very clear now
that . . . the budget of a data centre will shift very dramatically towards
accelerated computing, and you’re seeing that now.”
