The artificial intelligence processor market, dominated by NVIDIA, has been disrupted by a partnership between technology giants Microsoft and AMD.
The American technology companies Microsoft and processor and graphics card manufacturer AMD have announced that they are working together on artificial intelligence processors.
Microsoft recently acquired OpenAI, the owner of ChatGPT. Continuing to increase its market share, Microsoft is now entering the artificial intelligence integrated processor market.
In recent months, it was revealed that Microsoft was working on an artificial intelligence chip codenamed Athena. Following this development, it has also been revealed that AMD is collaborating with Microsoft on the artificial intelligence chip codenamed Athena.
Currently, NVIDIA’s technologies are used in artificial intelligence chipsets. NVIDIA‘s biggest rival, AMD, has fallen behind in this regard.
However, it is predicted that things will heat up even more and that AMD will now play a more active role in the competition due to the partnership with Microsoft.
Why is Microsoft working with AMD?
Microsoft is currently obtaining ChatGPT chipsets from NVIDIA. However, NVIDIA is experiencing stock shortages. Therefore, Microsoft plans to produce its own chipsets to eliminate this problem.
It has been announced that Microsoft has invested $2 billion in the Athena project. The company has created a design team consisting of a thousand engineers for the project.
With the Athena project, the technology giant plans to eliminate supply chain problems.
