nVidia has announced that in conjunction with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company), their GPU manufacturing partner, they have shipped their 1 billionth GPU.  That is quite the impressive number!

In celebration of this impressive milestone, they gave the following fun facts

  • They would wrap around the world more than twice
  • They’d stretch across 315,000 American Football fields or 275,000 Soccer fields
  • You’d need the entire population of Shanghai, China standing on each others’ shoulders to match it

Congrats to nVidia and TSMC on this very impressive achievement!
