Nvidia’s Latest Blackwell Chip: A Pivotal Breakthrough for Advancing AI Technology

Nvidia Corp. unveiled its most powerful chip architecture at the annual GPU Technology Conference, dubbed Woodstock for AI by some analysts. Chief Executive Officer Jensen Huang took the stage to show off the new Blackwell computing platform, headlined by the B200 chip, a 208-billion-transistor powerhouse that exceeds the performance of Nvidia’s already class-leading AI accelerators. The chip promises to extend Nvidia’s lead on rivals at a time when major businesses and even nations are making AI development a priority. After riding Blackwell’s predecessor, Hopper, to surpass a valuation of more than $2 trillion, Nvidia is setting high expectations with its latest product.

The B200 is Nvidia’s new flagship AI product. It’s at the heart of an expansive ecosystem of products, which includes proprietary interconnect technology that allows Nvidia to sell its chips in massive clusters that function as a unified processor. The Santa Clara, California-based company will sell the B200 in a variety of options, including as part of the GB200 superchip, which combines two Blackwell GPUs, or graphics processing units, with one Grace CPU, or a general-purpose central processing unit.
