Nvidia Prefer AI and Gaming Over Crypto, Says CTO


Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications such as ChatGPT and Google Bard are of more benefit to society than cryptocurrency mining, according to Nvidia’s Chief Technology Officer, Michael Kagan.

Kagan revealed that the company has been attempting to limit the utilization of its RTX-30 graphics chips for mining, and that it never gave its full endorsement to the crypto industry. “People used our GPUs for this purpose,” Kagan said to the Guardian (opens new tab). “They purchased a lot of stuff, but it doesn’t really do anything meaningful for society. AI does.”
