Nvidia Corp. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company on Thursday celebrated the shipment of the one-billionth GeForce graphics processing unit (GPU) designed by Nvidia and manufactured by TSMC.

“Since inventing the GPU more than a decade ago, Nvidia has driven innovation in these processors at a rate virtually unmatched in the technology industry. With our close partnership with TSMC, the complexity of these devices has increased more than 1000 times, enabling enormous progress in computers ranging from handhelds and PCs to workstations and data centers ,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of Nvidia.

The partners achieved the one-billionth processor milestone in less than twelve years. This achievement reflects a shared commitment to technological excellence and a relentless pace of innovation. Through deep trust and long-term objectives, the companies have raised the bar for the ambitions and practices that have helped shape the semiconductor industry.

Throughout the nearly twelve years of the GeForce partnership, Nvidia used United Micro Electronics and IBM to make the GeForce chips. Still, TSMC remained the main manufacturer of the GeForce chips as well as the main production partner of Nvidia.

“Nvidia’s achievement is a prime example of how close collaboration between foundry and fabless companies can benefit the consumer electronics market, the semiconductor market segment, and both companies’ shareholders. Nvidia has been a model of vision and innovation, and we highly value the long-term relationship between Nvidia and TSMC,” said Dr. Morris Chang, TSMC chairman and chief executive officer.
