GSM Arena reports Chinese phone maker Huawei reportedly set up a GPU design unit. The site heard Huawei is recruiting NVIDIA engineers to develop GPUs for the cloud computing and AI markets. Work on the project allegedly started as early as 2012. It's unknown if these GPUs will be offered commercially, or whether Huawei is designing chips for its own cloud computing business (like Google with its TPU).
It's important to note that these are not mainstream GPUs we are talking about here. It's about server-grade GPUs used for cloud computing and AI - a market which Nvidia is currently dominating. According to industry insiders, the tech giant has been developing its own GPU chip since 2012 and will present it to the world when the time is right.
