Huawei looking to enter the GPU business, recruits Nvidia engineers

It's important to note that these are not mainstream GPUs we are talking about here. It's about server-grade GPUs used for cloud computing and AI - a market which Nvidia is currently dominating. According to industry insiders, the tech giant has been developing its own GPU chip since 2012 and will present it to the world when the time is right.

It's also possible that the Huawei is working on a GPU to satisfy its own needs as it's currently running some cloud computing services.
