Nvidia Faces Curbs: Are Chips the New Weapon in Great Power Contest?
The US is broadening export restrictions on Nvidia AI chips. After China, some West Asian countries could now face restrictions while ordering Nvidia's chips.
Are companies like Nvidia now a strategic asset for countries like the US?
This is good. Necessity will force countries like India to manufacture chips. 10 years down the line they can start making powerful chips
Right, our Free Market turns out to be not so free!
Also, our claim that our companies aren't state controlled is a total joke!
But NVidia is riding a lot of HYPE right now, they aren't as good as they claim.
However, the name of this game is to hype, get the money, then make the lies come true
What if blacklisted countries build a proxy? They can put a purchaser in a country say INDIA and purchase chips from him.
So, those countries still can get chips proxed through INDIA or any other non-blacklisted country.
Prices may be a bit higher due to one more layer of cost but still possible to bypass such censorship.
I don't think big consumers were not prepared for this.
China & Russia can buy via proxy companies in other countries. Even better than selling, Nvidia can rent these chips!
There are million ways to circumvent the sanctions.
Good thing about sanctions via technology denial policy is that it makes other countries to develop their own technology.
US can curb as she likes but if there's no big market like China to sell, how to raise huge sum of money for R&D ?
Graphic processing units are small computers, which is easy to design compared actual processor. Nvedia is the most overvalued company in the world. With in 5 years if AI grow I am 100% sure some new company will be coming to capture market.
For sometimes may be, every country will focuse on their chip making and R&D sooner or later it'll fizzle out..
Why doesn't China just copy the microchip technology and manufacture their own like they do everything else? I wouldn't think it would be that hard for them. Their technology level is quite sophisticated.
It won't bother China. Just means Nvidia profits fall by billions.
Ok but that of NVIDIA first sells to company in Singapore and then that company sells it to the West Asian nations?
And why shouldn’t they use tech companies as bargain chips? OPEC uses oil as a weapon, Russia has and China minerals
I didn't know that the US owns NVDIA.
The real losers in the end will be the manufacturers because they are ultimately a business and their business is selling as much as they can.
US is going beyond their jurisdiction. Nvidia will close uS plant and open in China.
Just motivating China more to speed up becoming Semiconductor independent
The US should only allow unrestricted semiconductor access to allied nations.
Chip technology is so advanced I don't understand it.
No matter which party is in power US interests are most important and will be protected.
A group of parties compromised with disadvantages for India for 25 years.
This has been going on for a long time. One of the reasons why Huawei equipments aren't allowed in the USA.
Where are those who said it's the end of the dollar
Nvidia CEO is an Indian Jai Hind
TSMC founder and CEO is Chinese from Taiwan. Nvidia founder and CEO is Chinese from Taiwan. And of course now China can mass produce 28nm, 14nm and 7nm chips. So you see, most major chip manufacturers are led by Chinese. So what is US doing? Fight the Chinese on chip making? That is their specialty!
By the way, Huawei just started selling Huawei Mate 60 PRO. Guess what, the 7nm chip inside is made by HiSilicon which is a Chinese chip company. The sale started at the exact same day that US secretary of commerce Raimondo visited China. China is taunting US on the so called chip war.
顺便说一下，华为刚刚开始销售华为Mate 60 PRO。你猜怎么着，里面的7nm芯片是由中国芯片公司海思制造的。美国商务部部长雷蒙多访华的同一天开始销售。中国这是在所谓的芯片战争上嘲弄美国。
Lenovo makes good computers too
Does the recent BRICS invitation have anything to do with it?
Wise decision by the USA
China makes their own chips forget about US hegemony.
Other countries are making them. Not a big deal
Americans are Very very funny
You guys behind China 1000 years
How about india,curbs rice?
It is too late to cry, when the HEAD is Gone.
