Nvidia Introduces AI Chip Boasting 30 times Speed Boost, Crowned World’s Most Powerful Chip

Nvidia’s H100 AI chip has played a pivotal role in the company’s exponential growth, positioning it to potentially rival industry giants like Alphabet and Amazon, each valued in trillions of dollars. This success has spurred a sense of urgency among other companies to keep pace. Now, Nvidia aims to strengthen its position further with the introduction of its latest offerings: the Blackwell B200 GPU and GB200 “super chip.”

The B200 GPU stands out for its impressive performance, boasting the capability to handle up to 20 petaflops of computing power, made possible by its 208 billion transistors. Nvidia claims that the GB200, equipped with two of these GPUs alongside a specialized Grace CPU, can achieve even greater computational prowess, particularly excelling in specific tasks with a purported 30-fold increase in performance.

Nvidia anticipates that these advancements will lead to significant cost savings and reduced energy consumption, potentially up to 25 times less than previous iterations. However, the exact pricing remains undisclosed. Nvidia’s CEO has hinted at potential costs, suggesting each GPU could range between $30,000 and $40,000.
