Intel Corporation (INTC) Receives Positive Signal from Nvidia CEO for Potential Collaboration

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) was once a leader in PC chip-making but has faced challenges in recent years. It has fallen behind competitors such as Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA), renowned for their high-end chips.

However, Intel has now received encouraging news as Nvidia’s CEO, Jensen Huang, expressed openness to working with the chipmaker. Huang stated that Intel, a chip manufacturer, could be considered as an option in addition to using chips produced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC).

Despite recent military threats from China and growing concerns in Taiwan, Huang affirmed his confidence in Taiwan’s supply chain. He reiterated Nvidia’s commitment to using chips made by TSMC.

During the Computex 2023 conference held in Taiwan, Huang emphasized the importance of diversifying the supply chain. He highlighted that doing so is crucial for the future of Nvidia, given the risks involved. He stated that manufacturing with Intel is a possibility and that Intel’s CEO, Pat Gelsinger, has previously expressed interest in exploring their process. Huang further mentioned that Nvidia has received positive test chip results from Intel’s next-generation process.

Nvidia currently relies on multiple suppliers for its supply chain resilience, including TSMC and Samsung Electronics. Huang highlighted the criticality of diversification and redundancy to ensure the company’s ability to meet customer demands.

Intel Corporation’s stock (INTC) has seen a notable increase of 14.03% over the past five days, largely due to positive investor sentiment regarding its potential earnings. Moreover, Intel is expanding its foundry business and has plans for a new plant in Ohio.

David Zinsner, Intel’s CFO, highlighted the company’s role in the artificial intelligence industry, specifically in providing high-performance chips to customers. Zinsner expressed confidence in Intel’s capabilities in the realm of high-performance computing. He believes that the company can leverage its product offerings in the foundry business.

He further explained that Intel aims to ride the wave of AI by not only focusing on products but also by supplying wafers to customers addressing the AI market.

With Nvidia’s CEO expressing openness to collaboration and Intel’s focus on high-performance computing and the AI market, both companies are poised to make significant strides in the industry.
