NVIDIA expanding its CPU efforts with the new R&D group

NVIDIA is reportedly on a hiring spree in Israel as the company expands its research and development teams.

Micheal Kagan, NVIDIA CTO confirmed the company is creating a new CPU group in its latest effort to establish a bigger presence in the rapidly changing HPC market. Just last year in April, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang revealed NVIDIA’s first ARM-based CPU called Grace, which is now on track for early 2023 release.

Israel, with its unique wealth of talent, is a key player in the global tech ecosystem, and we are excited to be creating a new CPU group here. We look forward to further growing our local R&D activities both in this area and in our extensive work supporting the local ecosystem through unique programs for startups and developers.”

The new CPU Group is to work alongside other Israeli teams already developing high-speed networking, HPC technologies, and NVIDIA’s Data Processing Units.

After acquiring Mellanox in 2020, the NVIDIA Israel team has grown by a third to nearly 2800 employees. NVIDIA is still to hire hundreds of new employees more for the CPU group to cement its R&D efforts.
