Three watchdogs concerned about Nvidia's graphic cards

Can they play Crystalis? 

Regulators in the European Union, China and France have asked for information on Nvidia's graphic cards, with more requests expected in the future, the US chip giant said in a regulatory filing.

Demand for its chips jumped following the release of the generative AI application ChatGPT late last year. The California-based company has a market share of around 80 per cent via its chips and other hardware and its powerful software that runs them.

This high figure has led to concerns that someone might be playing monopoly and has already bought Park Lane and Mayfair.

The French Competition Authority collected information from Nvidia regarding its business and competition in the graphics card and cloud service provider market as part of an ongoing inquiry into competition in those markets," Nvidia said in a regulatory filing dated 21 November.

Now it seems other watchdogs are starting to snuffle around.
