Nvidia CEO Huang Renxun: Interested in exploring the possibility of Intel as a foundry

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said in a conference call today that Nvidia is interested in considering Intel's foundry chips. Jen-Hsun Huang said: “They (Intel) are interested in letting us use their manufacturing facility, and we are very interested in exploring that possibility. However, discussions on foundry contracts take a long time because it involves integrating the supply chain. , not as simple as buying a bottle of milk."

Previously, Intel mainly produced its own chips. But earlier last year, Intel decided to expand into making chips for other companies and announced several multi-billion-dollar projects to build new manufacturing centers in the U.S. and Europe.

Last week, Intel announced that it will invest up to 80 billion euros in the European Union over the next decade. The investment areas cover chip research and development, manufacturing, and advanced packaging technology. The first phase of investment plans includes a €17 billion state-of-the-art semiconductor manufacturing facility in Germany, the creation of a new R&D and design center in France, and investments in R&D, manufacturing, and foundry services in Ireland, Italy, Poland, and Spain.

Currently, Nvidia's main foundry is TSMC. With advanced manufacturing technology, TSMC manufactures chips for hundreds of companies, supplying about 90% of the world's high-end chips.

Shares of Intel rose as much as 2.5% today after Jen-Hsun Huang announced the news.
