NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. In 2006, the creation of our CUDA programming model and Tesla GPU platform opened up the parallel-processing capabilities of the GPU to general-purpose computing. A powerful new approach to computing was born. Today, GPU computing is the most pervasive, accessible, energy-efficient path forward for HPC and data centers. It powers the fastest supercomputers in the U.S. and Europe as well as regular breakthroughs in vital areas of scientific research.
