    If you are still wondering why NVIDIA's stock price has gone through the roof lately (here), all you need to do is read this article to understand why.

    As Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Baidu take turns leapfrogging each other in artificial intelligence innovation, one company stands to profit from any outcome: Nvidia. Graphics processor units, the company’s biggest moneymaker, have become the industry standard for deep learning, a flavor of artificial intelligence widely used by tech companies to build personal virtual assistants, image recognition for tagging photos, and even the software behind self-driving cars.

    Or this is just more marketing bullshit from nVidia as they lock people into their platform. We are no where near the singularity to declare a winner yet.

    Marketing is a part of business.

    At least they are investing into innovation.

    so far, nvidia is really the only option for add-in GPU processing cards, like the tesla cards. AMD simply doesnt have anything that compares

    there are entire blade and 1U servers based around housing them
