NVIDIA is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. The company said its GeForce RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 chips will improve video game graphics with twice the performance and almost twice the power of previous chip versions.

Nvidia has long been cooperating with various chip manufacturers to manufacture equipment. Recently, it has relied more on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd) to produce the most advanced chips, and they have relied more on TSMC to produce the most advanced chips. However, the manufacture of consumer-grade GPUs NVIDIA has cooperated with Samsung.


Samsung will use the 8-nanometer chip manufacturing process instead of the latest 5-nanometer process to manufacture new GeForce chips. However, Nvidia officials said that they have customized the process with Samsung, so Nvidia chips will be about 10% faster than other Samsung-made chips using the same 8-nanometer process.

"Processing technology is much more complicated. I think people have simplified it to an almost ridiculous degree," Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang told investors in a conference call last month and explained why The company does not always use the latest chip manufacturing technology.

Nvidia's chips use a variety of technologies to improve graphics performance, such as using an artificial intelligence processor to predict how light moves in the scene, rather than manually calculating each light.

The latest chip also uses a storage technology that Micron has been developing since 2006, called GDDR6X, which can double the amount of data stored in Nvidia chips.

"Unlike traditional memory, GDDR6X has an unparalleled data rate that can keep up with the pace of game innovation and data-intensive applications," said Tom Eby, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Micron’s Computing and Networking Business Unit Say.
