NVIDIA (NVDA)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.
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.
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.
The company was founded by three people:
Sequoia Capital and others invested more than $20 million of venture capital funding into Invidia.
Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, NVIDIA has more than 40 regional offices all over the world including both Americas, Europe and Asia. The company has a team of more than 11,500 employees working worldwide and is constantly growing.
The company’s sales has been growing due to the large purchases of Graphics Processing Units for the development of machine learning technologies. This market is constantly growing and is forecasted to keep the pace.
