Nvidia Embraces RTX 4090 D Chip for China, Adheres to U.S. Export Rules

Nvidia, a leader in AI chip technology, has recently introduced the RTX 4090 D, a gaming chip designed for the Chinese market. This comes as the company navigates the complex landscape of U.S. export controls while maintaining its presence in one of its markets.

As Reported by Reuters, Nvidia has embraced the  GeForce RTX 4090 D, bringing a powerhouse of advanced gaming features, enhanced efficiency, and captivating AI-driven graphics to the Chinese consumer market. Its development involved careful collaboration with U.S. officials, ensuring it met the export restrictions.

Strategic Response to Market Limitations

Biden Administration introduced export controls in October 2022. Nvidia’s RTX 4090 D represents China’s first product launch. These controls have led to the exclusion of Nvidia’s chips, including the A800, H800, and the flagship RTX 4090, from the Chinese market.

As a result, the new RTX 4090 D has been shaped to meet these regulatory restrictions, offering reduced performance—5% slower in gaming and creation tasks—at a price point of 12,999 yuan, which is approximately $1,842.

Market Dynamics and Revenue Implications

China represents a part of Nvidia’s market, accounting for over 90% of the nation’s $7 billion AI chip industry. The U.S. and Taiwan are markets, with other countries collectively contributing around 13%. Despite the export restrictions, Nvidia has reported $18 billion in revenue for Q3, largely driven by the burgeoning generative AI sector.

China’s Response to Export Controls

Given the U.S. government’s controls, China has explored alternatives to bolster its AI chip industry. Reports indicate that the country invests in developing AI chip factories to become a key player in the global semiconductor arena.
