Amazon states, no Nvidia chip orders have been suspended

Rather than canceling any reservations for Nvidia’s most advanced processor, the cloud services subsidiary of Amazon.com stated on Tuesday that it has decided to purchase the company’s more current, cutting-edge technology for a forthcoming supercomputer project.

The cloud services division of Amazon.com (AMZN.O.) announced on Tuesday that it has chosen to buy Nvidia’s (NVDA.O.) more recent, cutting-edge chip for an upcoming supercomputer project rather than canceling any orders for the company’s most advanced chip.

The largest cloud services company in the world, Amazon Web Services (AWS), was earlier reported by the Financial Times to have “fully transitioned” its orders for Nvidia’s Grace Hopper chip to the company’s more recent Blackwell graphics processing units (GPUs), which Nvidia launched in March.

According to a spokesman for AWS, the switch from Grace Hopper to Blackwell chips is exclusive to Project Ceiba, the supercomputer that AWS and Nvidia are developing together. According to the spokesman, AWS still provides more services that are built on Nvidia’s Hopper chips, which are its flagship model for AI training.

Both companies announced the Project Ceiba transition, which opened a new chapter in March when Nvidia debuted the new Blackwell processors.

To be clear, AWS did not block any of Nvidia’s orders. AWS spokesman: “We jointly decided to switch Project Ceiba from Hopper to Blackwell GPUs, which offer a leap forward in performance, as part of our close collaboration with Nvidia.”
