With the belief that the PC one day would become a consumer device for enjoying games and multimedia, NVIDIA is founded by Jensen Huang, Chris Malachowsky and Curtis Priem. At the time, there were more than two dozen graphics chips companies, a number that would soar to 70 three years later. By 2006, NVIDIA was the only independent still operating.
Fueled by the massive growth of the gaming market and its insatiable demand for better 3D graphics, we’ve evolved the GPU into a computer brain at the intersection of virtual reality, high performance computing, and artificial intelligence.
NVIDIA GPU computing has become the essential tool of the da Vincis and Einsteins of our time. For them, we’ve built the equivalent of a time machine.
