About NVIDIA Corporation

History of the company [1]

NVIDIA was founded in 1993 by Jensen Huang, Chris Malachowsky, and Curtis Priem on the belief that the personal computer would become a leading consumer device for enjoying games and multimedia.

Over the next two years, the company made successful forays, notably launching their first graphics card, having popular video game Virtua Fighter ported to run exclusively on NVIDIA products, and launching DirectX drivers for Microsoft. 

1997 brought NVIDIA’s first major milestone. The company launched the world’s first 128-bit 3D processor, and shipped 1 million units within four months. Shortly after, in 1999, NVIDIA invents the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), setting it on the path to reshape the industry. In the same year, the company went public, listing on the NASDAQ for USD$12 per share.

In 2002, after shipping its 100 millionth processor, NVIDIA was named the fastest growing company in America by Fortune. That feat would be repeated in 2007 when the company achieved its first quarter with revenue exceeding USD$1 billion, earning the title “Company of the Year” by Forbes magazine. 

In 2011, the company shipped its 1 billionth graphics processor. By now NVIDIA had become an unstoppable juggernaut, with its innovative products winning accolades not just in gaming, but also in visual effects and entertainment, mobile and consumer computing, super-computing, and AI. 

NVIDIA cemented its dominant market position in 2020, when it became the most valuable semiconductor company in the U.S. by market cap.

Besides graphics, NVIDIA’s other major business segment is in compute and networking. This is made up of the company’s Data Center platforms as well as systems for AI, high-performance computing, and accelerated computing. 

Also under this segment, NVIDIA provides networking and interconnected solutions, automotive AI Cockpit, autonomous driving development agreements and vehicle solutions, cryptocurrency mining processors, and Jetson for robotics and other embedded platforms.
