So far this year, Nvidia's stock has gained 175%, compared to Microsoft's under 19% increase.

Nvidia first crossed the $1 trillion market cap on June 13th, 2023, and rapidly reached $2 trillion by March 1st, before hitting the $3 trillion mark on June 5th.

Nvidia Corporation, led by CEO Jensen Huang, unveiled the Blackwell Ultra chip slated for 2025 and introduced the development of the next-generation Rubin platform scheduled for 2026.

Additionally, Nvidia's MGX program for server design enables expedited product launches by partners like Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. and Dell Technologies Inc.

Huang emphasized before the importance of countries owning the production of their own intelligence. In a fireside chat at the World Governments Summit in Dubai with the UAE’s Minister of AI Omar Al Olama, Huang described sovereign AI as a vast opportunity for global leaders.
