📈1 big thing: The second most valuable company to reach $3T valuation

Nvidia has become the world's second most valuable company. On Wednesday, the chipmaking giant's market capitalization soared to $3.01 trillion, even bigger than Apple, Amazon and Alphabet.

Highlights of the journey:

  • $1-2 trillion: Nvidia‘s H100 chip dominated the AI race, leading to a surge in value. After becoming a $1 trillion company in May 2023, it swiftly passed the $2 trillion mark in February this year, outpacing both Amazon and Alphabet.

  • Record-breaking profits: In May, Nvidia reported a staggering $14 billion in profit, driven by high chip sales. Now, with a market cap trailing only Microsoft's $3.15 trillion, Nvidia's stock is over $1,220 per share. A stock split is planned for June 7th.

  • 95% market leadership: Nvidia's AI accelerators hold between 70% and 95% of the AI chip market, according to CNBC. The company plans to launch a new AI chip yearly, starting with the Blackwell B200 GPU expected later this year.

Why this matters: Nvidia’s growth underscores the increasing importance of AI in our lives from advanced machine learning models to everyday AI applications. As Nvidia continues to innovate, we can expect even more groundbreaking advancements, making our lives smarter and more efficient.

✉️ Elon Musk diverted thousands of Nvidia’s AI chips from Tesla to xAI

Elon Musk reportedly diverted thousands of Nvidia-made AI chips from Tesla to his social media company, X, according to emails obtained by CNBC.

Between the lines: This move could delay Tesla's acquisition of $500 million worth of processors by months, impacting its pivot to AI and robotics.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Tesla’s AI plans: Tesla was planning to increase its acquisition of Nvidia's H100 AI chips from 35,000 to 85,000 by the end of the year, aiming to become a leader in AI and robotics. Musk had announced a $10 billion investment in AI for Tesla, primarily focusing on in-car applications.

  • Emails reveal a different story: Nvidia employees' emails suggest Musk is redirecting 12,000 H100 GPUs originally meant for Tesla to X and its AI subsidiary, xAI. In return, original X orders of 12,000 H100 GPUs slated for January and June will go to Tesla instead. This redirection conflicts with Musk's previous public statements about Tesla's chip purchases.

  • Investor concerns: Musk claimed Tesla couldn't accept the Nvidia GPUs due to the incomplete factory in Austin, Texas. He estimated Tesla would spend $3-4 billion on AI chips from Nvidia in 2024. This diversion could concern Tesla investors, who are counting on Musk to deliver on promises of fully autonomous vehicles. Despite scrutiny over its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving features, Tesla plans to unveil its first robotaxi in August.

Update on Musk’s AI startup, xAI: It’s competing with OpenAI, Google, and others to develop generative AI applications. Last month, xAI secured $6 billion in funding, highlighting its potential in the AI space.
