China Makes Sophisticated Chips, US Giant Immediately Reacts Tech – 2 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The technology giant from the United States (US) Nvidia will launch its newest chip. This was done after China accelerated its development of its own AI chips, in response to the total blockade launched by the Joe Biden administration.

Reportedly, Huawei will replace Nvidia’s role as supplier of AI chips in the Bamboo Curtain country.

Nvidia added a number of new features that support Artificial Intelligence performance for its chips. Additionally, the new H200 chip will get improvements over its predecessor H100.

Nvidia will insert a lot of high bandwidth memory. The H200 has 141 gigabytes of high-bandwidth memory. That figure is up from the H100 with 80 gigabytes, quoted from Reuters, Tuesday (14/11/2023).

Reuters noted that Nvidia did not reveal who the new memory chip supplier was. However, last September, Micron Technology stated that it was collaborating with Nvidia as a supplier.

Apart from that, the company also reportedly purchased memory from SK Hynix from South Korea. The company previously said the AI ​​chip would help drive sales.

A number of companies have registered to use the H200 chip. Some of the first cloud service providers to offer access to chips include Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud.

Apart from that, there are also several specialized AI cloud providers, namely Coreweave, Lambda and Vultr.

Previously, Huawei made a breakthrough through the launch of the Mate 60 Pro. The cellphone uses the advanced Kirin 9000 chip made by Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMIC).

The chip was built using 7nm (nanometer) technology, he said TechInsights. Mate 60 Pro is also supported by 5G networks.

The presence of the Kirin 9000 chip is proof of the Chinese government’s success in building an ecosystem of domestic chip manufacturers.

This launch is also proof that Huawei can still compete in the smartphone industry. Even though the company was blacklisted in the United States (US) several years ago.
