The visit, though brief, left a profound impression on the NVIDIA delegation regarding the quality of training, dynamism, and creativity of VNU-HCM students. The AI boom has made NVIDIA one of the most important tech companies globally, valued at over $2 trillion. Founded in 1993, NVIDIA is a "star" in the semiconductor industry, with its AI chip models continuously in high demand. In early 2022, the company announced the H100, the world's most powerful GPU at that time. Later that year, the sudden global popularity of ChatGPT caused NVIDIA's AI chips to become scarce. NVIDIA's market capitalization rose from $400 billion in January 2023 to $2 trillion at the beginning of this year.

It is known that NVIDIA's GPUs currently hold 80% of the global market share, maintaining NVIDIA's monopoly in this field and making it the world's most valuable chip manufacturer.
