U.S.Authorities Restrict Shipments of Advanced AMD and NVIDIA Computing Accelerators to China and Russia

The last day of the calendar summer brought unpleasant news to Chinese and Russian AMD and NVIDIA customers.
The U.S.
government just banned both companies from shipping GPU computing gas pedals to those countries that meet certain performance criteria.
In the case of NVIDIA refers to products series A100 and H100, while AMD attributed to the list of \"sanctioned\" Accelerators Instinct MI250.Image source: AMDAccording to AMD representatives, as explained by Reuters, the supply of Accelerators Instinct MI100 did not fall under the ban.
At the same time, AMD believes that the new restrictions will not have a significant impact on the company's business, as trade turnover in this area were not large enough.
NVIDIA shares on the background of this news lost more than 6% in price, in the case of AMD reduction did not exceed 3.8%.
It is believed that the level of performance that determines the need for a ban on the supply of gas pedal in China and Russia, took the speed solution NVIDIA A100 with Ampere architecture.On the idea of American officials, advanced components of American origin should not be used by Chinese and Russian customers to improve military technology.
AMD and NVIDIA computing gas pedals, which are under the ban, can theoretically be used in speech recognition systems for eavesdropping and recognition of military objects in the images of terrain received from reconnaissance satellites.
