The company escaped the constraints with his assistance.
The Hopper H800 chip has been developed and launched by Nvidia specifically for the Chinese market. With his assistance, the company bypassed US restrictions.
The H800 chip is a stripped-down version of the H100 chip used in current Nvidia accelerators. According to Reuters sources, the H800 has half its bandwidth, reducing AI learning on that chip.
Representatives from Nvidia confirmed the development of a stripped-down chip, but did not go into details about the H100's capabilities. H800-based accelerators are well-known by Tencent, Baidu, and Alibaba.
Nvidia has released a stripped-down chip for the Chinese market for the second time. The previous version of the A100 chip was referred to as the A800 index.
