Nvidia Slips After The Opening Bell As Amazon Halts Superchip Orders

Artificial Intelligence (AI) chip giant, Nvidia has slipped today in the market following reports of Amazon halting orders on a previous model of the company’s “super chip.” In a new Financial Times report, Amazon Web Services explained that it has transitioned its earlier orders to the recent version of chips. 

According to the report, the company’s Grace Hopper Superchip released last year will be replaced with new orders on the recent Grace Blackwell. In March, the US-based chipmaker unveiled a new iteration of chips, Grace Blackwell barely a year after delivery for Hopper began to customers.

Amazon noted that the window between both releases is small prompting the company’s decision. Nvidia has previously explained the new model will be twice as powerful to train large languages. 

Nvidia Price Drops 

Following the news, the high-flying Nvidia stock recorded a slight 1% decline today and exchanged hands at $945.03. This decline comes as investors anticipate the company’s Q1 2024 earnings on Wednesday following a blistering quarterly performance in the green zone.

Market Awaits Q1 Earnings
