The 10 Biggest Nvidia News Stories Of 2021 (So Far)
It’s only halfway through 2021, and it’s already been a blockbuster year for Nvidia, which is increasingly becoming a bigger player in the world of computing with new enterprise software, programs and GPUs as well as data processing units and eventually CPUs.
The New King In Computing?
Nvidia would like you to think that it’s the most important computing company of this generation, and it certainly has a few things going on that would support that assertion.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company’s GeForce GPUs for gaming are popular as ever, and its data center GPUs have continued to sell fast as enterprises begin to accept the component as critical for accelerating next-generation workloads.

What follows are the 10 biggest Nvidia news stories of 2021 so far, ranging from new enterprise software, programs and GPUs to new AI records, chip shortages and hurdles in the company’s effort to acquire British chip designer Arm for $40 billion.
