Most Innovative Companies


In 2016, Nvidia introduced the world’s most powerful computer for in-vehicle AI: Nvidia Drive PX 2. With the processing power of 250 MacBook Pros, Drive PX 2 uses deep learning on Nvidia’s latest graphics-processing units for 360-degree situational awareness, to help a vehicle recognize its environment and plan a safe route. More than 80 automakers, universities, and auto suppliers are using Drive PX 2 to develop autonomous vehicles. Drive PX 2 will also power every vehicle in the Roborace Championship, the world’s first robotic motorsport competition.

Nvidia also makes the world’s highest-performing GPUs for virtual reality—which are vital for the powerful computers that do the actual processing for systems like HTC’s Vive or the Oculus Rift. These Pascal-based GPUs—the GeForce GTX 1080, GeForce GTX 1070, and Titan X—provide unprecedented performance, power efficiency, and VR capabilities for personal computers. The GeForce GTX 10-series GPUs also power a new batch of VR-capable notebooks.
