In this post:

  • Nvidia plans to sell AI chips worth $12 billion in China, even though they are subject to US export controls.
  • More than a million H20 chips that were created to get around American restrictions will be distributed.
  • Nvidia’s H20 chips surpass Huawei’s Ascend 910B in sales projections.

Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) is on track to sell AI chips in China worth $12 billion this year. Despite strict U.S. export restrictions aimed at limiting China’s access to advanced technology, Nvidia will deliver over 1 million units of its new H20 chips to the Chinese market. Each H20 chip is priced between $12,000 and $13,000.

The projected revenue is a remarkable increase from Nvidia’s previous fiscal year in China, where the company earned $10.3 billion. The new H20 chips meet regulatory requirements and also attract high demand from Chinese customers.

The H20 chips are built specifically to comply with U.S. regulations while still delivering high performance. According to SemiAnalysis, Nvidia is set to deliver more than 1 million H20 chips to Chinese customers in the coming months. This number is almost double what Huawei is expected to sell of its rival chip, the Ascend 910B.

The efforts by Biden’s administration to end China’s access to advanced AI technology have increased competition within the Chinese market. However, the H20 chip has become a popular alternative, helping the company maintain a strong presence in China. 

The Chinese market for AI chips is highly competitive, especially with U.S. export control measures in place. In 2022, the U.S. blocked the export of advanced Nvidia chips to China and tightened restrictions further last year. Despite these challenges, H20 chips have gained remarkable purchases.

With each H20 chip priced between $12,000 and $13,000, Nvidia stands to generate over $12 billion in sales this year.
