NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) GPUs are the core of the chipmaker’s accelerated computing products. They bring market-leading performance and energy efficiency to various industries, from graphics and design to data science and artificial intelligence. Recently, the company released its latest GPU architecture, Ampere, which is two to 20 times faster than previous generations. Here’s a look at how this new technology could help NVIDIA grow its gaming and data-center businesses.
In September 2020, NVIDIA announced its Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, which offer twice the performance and power efficiency of its previous Turing-based products. For gamers, these graphics cards bring the super-realistic lighting of ray tracing, plus other enhancements, to popular titles like Fortnite and Cyberpunk 2077.
