Namely, the outstanding growth of its data center segment, which over the last few quarters has been closing the gap on Nvidia’s biggest revenue generator, gaming, and a “friendly” macro environment which has played to the GPU leader’s strengths.

However, Nvidia has fingers in many pies, and is banking on several secular trends which are expected to ramp up in the 2020s. Along with making waves in the AI sector, the company is one of the leading players in the rising autonomous vehicle category.

Los Angeles-based startup Czinger has remained relatively quiet since it unveiled the 21C, a 3D-printed plug-in hybrid hypercar, in February.
