What is NVIDIA?

NVIDIA is a global leader in visual and GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) accelerated computing. Today, the company targets four major segments, including gaming, data centre, professional visualisation and automotive, where visual computing is highly valued.

What does the company do?

The company designs and produces Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) for professional and gaming markets, and also runs a line of System on a Chip Units (SoCs) for the automotive and mobile computing markets. Its key product line is called GeForce. NVIDIA has a strong presence in the gaming industry, producing Shield Portable video game consoles, Shield Android TVs and Shield Tablets. Through time NVIDIA evolved its key GPU manufacturing business into a super computer brain, working at the intersection of high-performance computing, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.

A bit of NVIDIA’s history

The company was established in 1993 by three co-founders, who believed that the future of computing will be based on graphics. The initial capital comprised $40,000. From the very beginning the company didn’t have a name and the founders called all their work by the abbreviation NV, which meant “next version”. Then the name “invidia”, the latin word for “envy”, was born.

Who founded NVIDIA?

The company was founded by three people:

  1. Jensen Huang, a former microprocessor designer at Advanced Micro Devices and the director of CoreWare at LSI Logic
  2. Curtis Priem, a former graphics chip designer and senior staff engineer at Sun Microsystems
  3. Cris Malachowsky, a former electrical engineer at Sun Microsystems

Sequoia Capital and others invested more than $20 million of venture capital funding into Invidia.
