In the highest tier of tech giants, certain names stand out. Meta, Amazon, and Alphabet aren’t just companies, they are economic icons. Firms that almost everyone has heard of.

But there’s one company bigger than all of these: Nvidia.

This $2.2tn chip maker may not have quite the same name recognition as some Silicon Valley behemoths, but it’s no new kid on the block. So, what’s the story behind the rise – and rise – of Nvidia?

In this latest episode of Mike & Amit Talk Tech, the two IMD professors discuss why microprocessors are so vital to the future of AI and the story of one hardware maker that’s a cut above the rest.
