Why Nvidia Corporation (NVDA) Stock Will Keep Jumping Higher

NVDA stock is set to continue its impressive run up

Earlier this month, Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) announced the Jetson TX2, which is the latest iteration of the TX1, which NVDA describes as “the world’s first supercomputer on a module.” The company designed the Jetson module as a tool to assist developers in advancing and creating new technology. Additionally, in partnership with Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Nvidia announced development of the HGX-1 Hyperscale GPU Accelerator, which promises improved performance and standardization for cloud-computing servers.

These tools will also serve NVDA stock investors (indirectly, of course), as they further the company’s rise to the top of the AI industry ladder.

Android Central described the Jetson TX2 best, saying:
The people who will build this technology of the future will need the tools to do so. In 2017, NVIDIA is doing its part, and the Jetson TX2 is the embodiment of this idea.
Simply put, the Jetson TX2 is a mini supercomputer that can process massive amounts of data on the spot, which can be a huge advantage for technology developers who would otherwise have had to upload all that data to an online server for cloud computing.
