NVIDIA GTC 2024: Analysts’ Insights and Industry Trends

AI has become a ubiquitous theme in the tech industry and NVIDIA stands out as a key player, often referred to as the kingmaker of AI. As such, one can expect GTC 2024 to showcase groundbreaking advancements and applications in AI across various domains.

Our analysts are covering the event live as well as virtually. Here’s what Brady Wang, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research, has to say from the San Jose McEnery Convention Center:

NVIDIA is the hottest company in the world right now. The company’s focus on multimodal AI training in data centers, particularly emphasizing the energy-efficient GB200 systems and DGX SuperPODs with enhanced inference capability, will contribute significantly to its growing revenues in the Data Center sector. This transition is evident as companies move from training Large Language Models (LLMs) to multimodal AI models. Furthermore, NVIDIA is highlighting the integration of AI into the physical world, with industries like robotics, automotive, and extended reality (XR) incorporating AI into the 3D realm, unlocking new possibilities and use cases.
