NVIDIA CEO: FTC Action “Transforms” the Computer Industry


Jen Hsun Huang

NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang has recently issued an internal memo to employees, calling the legal action by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) an event that could potentially “transform the computer industry”. The memo follows:

Hi everyone,

The U.S. government announced today that it has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Intel. This is an action the industry needs and one that consumers deserve. And it’s one that can completely transform the computer industry.

The facts are clear. The FTC has charged that Intel has used its monopoly illegally to stifle innovation, to keep prices for their products inflated, and to unfairly block competitors. The FTC believes that millions of consumers have paid more and received less quality in return – and that companies and their employees have been forced out of markets where Intel has been threatened.

Intel is fully aware that great graphics have become one of the most important features for consumer PCs, the fastest-growing segment of the PC market. Even more alarming to Intel is the revolutionary parallel computing technology in our GPUs that is being adopted by software developers across the world. The more successful we became, the bigger threat we were to Intel’s monopoly. Instead of creating competitive GPU solutions and competing on the merits of their products, Intel has resorted to unlawful acts to stop us. The FTC announced today that this isn’t acceptable.

Nothing this complicated gets decided quickly. It will take months for the FTC case to be heard by an administrative judge who then recommend a ruling back to the FTC. And it’s possible that this decision could be appealed. But today is a huge step forward for all of us that will begin to re-level the playing field.

Today’s FTC announcement highlights the industry-changing impact of the GPU and the importance of our work. Our innovation is making the PC magical and amazing again. I can now imagine the day when Intel can no longer block consumers from enjoying our creation and experience computing in a way we know is possible.

Keep innovating…

Jensen

    Intel forgot how to make math coprocessors, or what people now refer to as a GPU. I don’t see how this changes much for Nvidia. Unless Nvidia hopes to get a x86 license out of this and start making x86 CPU’s.

    We seriously invite everyone to identify and also get in touch with Eric Schwartz of Los Angeles for virtually all your musical technology wishes. The guy comes with contacts, dreams, and attraction. He is very good with the women, a genius, a gentleman, as well as a good individual. You can find the man on facebook, give him an excellent job or an internship, or just overlook him and see the guy get famous without you. Thank you very much for your time and attention.
