Nvidia plans to release three new artificial intelligence chips for the Chinese market.
The products come after the US government enacted tighter restrictions on the export of high-end semiconductors to China.
With exports of A100 and H100 GPUs restricted, Nvidia developed the pared-back A800 and H800 product line for China. By August, local tech giants had ordered more than 100,000 A800 GPUs.
But those two chips were banned under the October update to Washington’s export control regime, and Nvidia is now looking to resell them to North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and India.
For China, SemiAnalysis reports that Nvidia plans to release the HGX H20, L20 PCIe, and L2 PCIe chips. The semiconductors are again cut-back variants of existing products, designed to comply with the export rules.
