‘Nvidia chip restriction won’t hurt them’, says Nio

‘Nvidia chip restriction won’t hurt them’, says Nio

Chinese electric car maker Nio said that U.S. restrictions on Nvidia chip sales to China wouldn’t affect the automaker’s business.

Last week Nvidia disclosed that the U.S. would require the chipmaker to get a licensed export to China for specific products in the future. It is an effort to reduce the risk of them being used by the Chinese military. Citing the issue, the chairman, founder, and CEO of Nio, William Li, said that they believe the restriction won’t impact their business.

The Nvidia Drive Orin chip has become a core part of assisted driving tech for Nio and other electric car companies in China. Nvidia’s one of the online blog posts described how Nio’s new ES7 SUV came with four such chips, including one that enabled the car to learn from individual driver preferences.

The new U.S. restrictions targeted A100 and H100 products of Nividia, whose sales are part of the company’s far larger data center business. These products are graphics processors used for artificial intelligence. On Wednesday, CEO Li said that many companies in China have AI training chips, and their company is evaluating opportunities to work with different companies.
