According to MEDIA, NVIDIA gives almost 7 billion dollars for the production of 5-nm chips for video cards line RTX 4000… Recall that at the end of 2022, next-generation GPUs based on the Ada Lovelace architecture should be released. It is also worth noting that NVIDIA has not yet paid TSMC the entire declared amount – so far only $ 1.64 billion. The company will make the next payment of 1.79 billion in early 2022.
