AI is the coolest present that just keeps on giving! And hey, if you're having a hard time wrapping your head around it, let me tell you about Nvidia – they totally get it too!

In the dawn of the new generative AI era, Nvidia has taken centre stage, with its market value skyrocketing to a mind-blowing $1 trillion, causing seismic waves throughout the tech industry. Talk about a shake-up!

These powerful GPUs drive several software including the incredible generative AI platforms we love, such as OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Bard.
