Depending on your perspective you may say we are blessed or we are cursed to live in very fluid times. At last it appears that the processing power needed to achieve what once was a fantasy has become a reality. From Uber’s autonomous self-driving car hitting the streets of Pittsburgh, to virtual reality being introduced to the mass market, and to the nature of combat being handled through remote drones, we are living in a historically significant period. We cannot fully grasp the historical significance of the transformation that is occurring, yet we can understand that the way our society functions is changing. One major player in enabling this transformation to occur is a visual computing chip maker named NVIDIA (NVDA).
The transformation noted above is a process that is heavily dependent on a huge amount video data processing. Video processing is a very resource intense endeavor. To gain an understanding of how intense it is, we will take the example of today’s virtual reality. The current high-end of mainstream virtual reality is able to present virtual worlds to us, yet the refinement of the graphics is that which you would expect of a video game 10 – 15 years ago. This is the case because of the data processing needs placed upon the computer’s video processor. In previous times, we had a pre-defined screen, which was required to display and process information. Now a 360 degree world must be present and ready for us to see and interact with. This is significant jump in data requirements.
Whether we are talking about self-driving cars, robots on the battle field, or some other ‘sensing’ device, the need for visual computing power is growing at an astronomical pace.
NVIDIA is the leader the field of visual computer processing power. It has a long history and is currently working with companies like Tesla and computer makers throughout the world in order to ensure that the breakthrough technologies that are being launched can function efficiently and successfully. At the moment NVIDIA is the industry leader and they’re serving many industries that have a growing demand for such products.
NVIDIA is a growth company to put on your investing radar screen. Its innovation is working behind the scenes to drive the transformation we see occurring across a number of industries.
