However, AMD didn’t capitalize on the potential of GPU compute at that time, allowing Nvidia to take the lead. Nvidia’s vision for GPU compute resulted in the development of CUDA, an API for Nvidia GPUs used in AI training. Nvidia’s investments in AI tools, software, and supercomputers attracted other firms and universities, creating a virtuous circle and contributing to the growth of the $50 billion AI market. AMD and Intel have the capability to challenge Nvidia but
