Nvidia is investing more than $ 100 million in the development of the British supercomputer


Compared to the original plans, the manufacturer is allocating a much larger amount to the Cambridge-1 project.

Nvidia is primarily engaged in the development and manufacture of GPUs, but the IT company appears to have invested a significant amount in a major investment. The company announced support for the UK’s most powerful supercomputer back in October last year, but the planned investment at the time was roughly $ 55.6 million.

A significant change from this is that Nvidia would be willing to spend more than $ 100 million on the project in the early stages of development.

The supercomputer will be built in Cambridge under the name Cambridge-1, as the company announced last year, and according to the latest reports, Nvidia is devoting huge start-up capital to the development. The company had original plans to acquire Cambridge-based Arm Ltd., which is developing the ARM architecture, but negotiation processes have stalled with owner SoftBank Group.

Nvidia’s aim with Cambridge-1 is thus to demonstrate its commitment to the development of ARM technology and the UK computing market. The details of the supercomputer technology are not yet known, but it is expected that Nvidia will still spend a significant amount on the project in addition to the initial $ 100 million.
