NVIDIA shares reach more record highs amid AI supercomputer proposal


Recommended Posts

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the new big hot topic.

After NVIDIA last week reported a massive earnings and revenue beat, the company is now building Israel's most powerful AI supercomputer. It will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but the computational power proposal is astonishing.

The system, called Israel-1, is expected to deliver the performance of up to eight exaflops of AI computing. One exaflop is a standard measure of performance for a supercomputer.

Exa is short for quintillion, a 1 followed by 18 zeros, which means one exaflop has the ability to perform one billion-billion calculations per second. This proposal from NVIDIA is to build a computer which can perform eight times that amount of calculations per second.

The report suggests that the system will be partly operational by the end of 2023.

More good news for NVIDIA

NVIDIA, the artificial intelligence (AI) specialist which makes semiconductors for computers, reported some stellar earnings last week, both earnings and revenues up, and the outlook extremely robust as a result of its association with artificial intelligence or AI chips.

Yesterday, NVIDIA came out with some more news. It's announced it is building Israel's most powerful AI semi-computer and the numbers are astonishing. The system is called Israel-1. It's expected to deliver the performance of up to eight exaflops of AI computing.

Now, what is an exaflop? Well, that's a good question. One exaflop has the ability to perform one billion-billion calculations per second. Now, the system will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and will be partly operational by the end of 2023. This will mean that Israel through this computer will be able to engage far quicker with AI computing and it will help extra elements.

Share price chart

Let's take a look at what's happening in NVIDIA stock as we speak all-sessions on the IG platform. This is early trade. We are very, very close to going to a new all-time high and I suspect we could well end up seeing this creep up, even as we speak. It is currently trading at $398.74.

This is a candle here where you can see we've gone at the bottom and we're currently at the top. There are no sellers in this stock. And I predict that sometime today, we will see a new all-time record high.

Last week, NVIDIA stock jumped more than 25%, or around about a quarter of its total value, on the back of its quarterly earnings. And you can see at the moment we are punching higher as we speak.

So, NVIDIA very much the front and center of AI computing and it's benefiting this morning from that news in Israel.

    • Interoperability: Different blockchain networks follow distinct protocols and rules, making it challenging for them to communicate and share data/assets effortlessly. This creates isolated ecosystems that struggle to interact smoothly. For instance, if a blockchain supply chain system needs to exchange information with a finance blockchain to process payments, the lack of interoperability complicates the process significantly. Scalability: Scalability refers to a blockchain's ability to handle increasing numbers of users and transactions without performance degradation. Many popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, face scalability challenges. They require every node to validate each transaction, limiting their transaction processing capacity. As more users join or transaction volumes rise, the network becomes congested, leading to slower speeds and higher fees. This scalability issue hinders blockchain's use for high-traffic applications like global payment systems or decentralized apps (DApps). To address these challenges, researchers are working on solutions such as: For interoperability - developing standard protocols or "bridges" that enable seamless communication between different blockchains. Examples include Polkadot, Cosmos, and Nervos. For scalability - approaches like sharding (dividing the blockchain into smaller pieces to process transactions in parallel), off-chain scaling (conducting some transactions off the main chain), and others. The Nervos Network, a Layer 1 and 2 blockchain, aims to tackle interoperability and scalability issues using its Proof-of-Work consensus and tools like the Universal Passport for creating "Universal Applications" that can function across different chains. Overcoming these hurdles is crucial for mainstream blockchain adoption, enabling smooth integration with existing systems, high transaction volumes, and interconnected decentralized applications across multiple blockchain networks.
    • Coingecko recently dropped a Q1 report on the crypto industry. Interestingly, a couple of the centralised exchanges were captured showing their growth and decline thus far.  Some of the highlights include the Futures trading volume. Binance is held to have had a volume of 43% in january with a slight drop to 42% and then back to 43%. Gleaning from this, there was really no growth on the part of Binance as per futures trading.  Similarly, platforms like OKX and Bybit had no significant increase as well. The CEXs are still hovering around 16% and 13% respectively.  However, platforms like Bitget have shown some amount of growth thus far witnessing an increase of 3% from 9% in february thus peaking the percentage at 12%. The platform has also witnessed an increased user base. The recent features incorporated by the platform to make trading easy accounts for this. In a juxtaposition to the above, the spot trading volume has also grown considerably. As at january, the spot volume was at about $29 billion, in february it grew to $36 billion. The march volume peaked it all with about $95 billion.  As can be seen in the report, Bitget have grown considerably. With the concerted efforts of the team, the platform is a recipe for growth. https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report
    • Step into the future of blockchain technology with Nervos Network (CKB), an open-source public blockchain ecosystem designed to create a peer-to-peer (P2P) crypto-economy network. With its ambitious goal of providing provably secure blockchain services and capabilities, Nervos Network stands as a beacon of innovation in the decentralized landscape. At the heart of Nervos Network's innovation lies the Universal Passport, a suite of tools that enables the creation of Universal Applications. These applications have the unique ability to leverage the full potential of the Nervos Network ecosystem, offering users access to a wide range of blockchain services and capabilities. With the Universal Passport, developers can unlock new possibilities and drive innovation in the decentralized space. Excitement mounts as Nervos Network (CKB) makes its debut on Bitget Exchange, providing users with the opportunity to deposit and trade CKB tokens on the platform. This listing not only expands the reach of Nervos Network but also offers users a trusted and secure platform to engage with the CKB token. As Nervos Network continues to push the boundaries of blockchain technology, its listing on Bitget Exchange marks a significant milestone in its journey towards broader recognition and adoption.
