Nvidia is celebrating reaching the two million registered developers milestone by highlighting some of their community’s achievements.

GPUs from Nvidia are powering everything from your home gaming rig to self-driving cars. Most recently, they’ve even been harnessed in the global fight against COVID-19.

And Nvidia is truly a global company. The California-based firm highlighted some of the most active GPU developers per region:

  • In North America, the most active developers include Microsoft, Amazon, and Google.
  • In China, national tech giants like Alibaba and Baidu.
  • In Japan, the brands include Sony, Hitachi, and Panasonic.
  • In Europe, Nvidia name-checks Bosch, Daimler, and Siemens.

Nvidia is also used extensively in universities such as CalTech, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, Tsinghua University, the University of Tokyo, and IIT campuses throughout India. 

Beyond the household names, Nvidia boasts many smaller developers and hobbyists working on projects which could be the next thing to change the world.

Nvidia’s registered developers are downloading kits such as CUDA, cuDNN, TensorRT, and OptiX, at a total rate of 100,000 downloads per month.

CUDA can be downloaded for free without registration meaning the total downloads per month is even higher. On average, Nvidia says it’s seeing 438,000 downloads of CUDA each month.

Just some of the fields these tools are helping with include high performance computing, graphics and professional visualisation, robotics, AI and data science, networking, and self-driving vehicles.

One example of a startup creating groundbreaking innovations by developing using Nvidia is Acubed. Arne Stoschek, head of autonomous systems at Acubed, is using GPU-accelerated AI to develop self-piloting air taxis.

There are dozens more success stories which can be found on Nvidia’s blog post here

Congratulations on the two million, Nvidia. We look forward to celebrating the next million!
