New Export Restrictions Imposed on Nvidia’s High-Level Artificial Intelligence Chips to China

In a recent development, the American chip manufacturer Nvidia has announced that the US government has issued immediate export restrictions on some of its high-quality artificial intelligence (AI) chips to China, affecting the implementation date of such regulations.

Originally, the restrictions were scheduled to take effect 30 days after October 17, when the administration of Joe Biden announced measures prohibiting the shipment of advanced AI chips to countries like China, Iran, and Russia. However, Nvidia has not disclosed the reason behind the acceleration of this timeline by the US government but does not expect short-term implications on its operations due to this change.

Responding to requests for comment made by the news agency Reuters, Advanced Micro Devices, another company affected by these restrictions, has not yet provided a statement. The US Department of Commerce has declined to comment, as has Intel, which began selling its Gaudi 2 chips in China in July and is currently “reviewing regulations and assessing potential consequences.”

The new restrictions prohibit the export of Nvidia’s A800 and H800 chips, which are modified advanced AI chips intended for the Chinese market to align with previous export regulations. Additionally, Nvidia’s A100, H100, and L40S chips are also affected.
