About Nvidia

Nvidia leads the global market for artificial intelligence (AI) chips and has recently benefited from a surge in interest in the technology. Nvidia’s share price rose 5.2 per cent today to close at a record $1,224.40. This brought the company’s market value to $3.012 trillion.

Apple’s stock was up only 0.8 percent today and the market value of the company was $3.003 trillion at the end of trading. Microsoft shares closed up 1.9 percent, bringing the company’s market value to $3.15 trillion, Reuters reports.


Nvidia reported last month that its net profit more than tripled to $14.88 billion in the first fiscal quarter ending in April from $2.04 billion a year earlier. The company’s shares have gained nearly 150 percent since the start of this year.

Nvidia last had a higher market value than Apple in 2002, five years before Apple launched its iPhone smartphones. The market value of both companies was less than $10 billion then, Bloomberg pointed out.
