Microsoft's new chip will reportedly launch next month

In November 2023, tech giant Microsoft will unveil its first artificial intelligence chip that will reduce dependence on Nvidia's GPUs, according to technology publication The Information.

The report, citing sources, said the move "could help Microsoft reduce its reliance on artificial intelligence chips developed by Nvidia, which have become scarce amid booming demand for them."

Microsoft's data center servers currently use Nvidia GPUs to power advanced LLMs for cloud clients, including OpenAI and Intuit, as well as artificial intelligence features in Microsoft's productivity applications.

Other major tech companies such as Amazon and Google are also building their own AI chips. Until now, the chip market has been dominated by Nvidia, but Microsoft's entry into the market could change that.

Microsoft's "Ignite" conference, which will be held Nov. 14-17 in Seattle, Washington, at the Summit Building, will showcase new IT products, including an AI chip codenamed Athena.
