History of Nvidia


Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) was founded in 1993 in the United States as a startup. In 1995, it launched its first graphics chip, with a mixed reception. It was in April 1998 with its RIVA 128 ZX chip that Nvidia was propelled to the forefront of the scene. In January 1999, the company went public.

In 2000, Nvidia had crushed all competition, and bought 3dfx. Despite this status, the years 2002-2003 were difficult for the company, following a technical and commercial failure. The year 2004 on the other hand helped Nvidia to recover, with the release of their GeForce 6 and the SLI technology.

This was followed by many years of struggle between Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) and AMD in the graphics card market, a struggle that is still going on today.

The Market


Nvidia's (NASDAQ: NVDA) core business is the sale of graphics cards, processors and chips. They are essential to any computer. This market has been booming in recent years. First, with the global health crisis, the use of gaming PCs has exploded, requiring good graphics cards. Today, more and more people want to create their own PC. In addition, crypto-currency mining has experienced an inordinate growth, correlated with the soaring prices of the underlying assets. This sudden demand (as well as the health context) was even at the origin of shortages of raw materials and therefore of stock.

The digitalization of the world is still going on, more and more people use a computer on a daily basis, whether for work or leisure. The demand is not decreasing, but the competition is tough between the computer giants.
