Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s CEO, believes virtual 3-D worlds will be commonplace in the next phase of the internet and, as a result, drive major demand for the chipmaker’s new Omniverse software and its GPUs. ‘Hopefully one of these days — we’ll try to realize it as fast as we can — every transaction that goes into the internet touches a GPU,’ he said during Nvidia’s earnings call for the third quarter of its 2022 fiscal year.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said the company’s Omniverse suite of software presents “one of the largest graphics opportunities” for the chipmaker yet as he expects virtual 3-D worlds will represent the next stage of the internet and drive greater demand for the company’s GPUs.
“Instead of just querying information, we would query and interact with people and avatars and things and places, and all of these things are in 3-D, so hopefully one of these days — we’ll try to realize it as fast as we can — every transaction that goes into the internet touches a GPU,” Huang said during the Wednesday earnings call for the third quarter of Nvidia’s 2022 fiscal year. “Today, that’s a very small percentage, but hopefully, one of these days will be a very, very high percentage.”
