Moreover, this sector has contributed strongly to the growth of the computer hardware manufacturers that produce chips that are appropriate for each segment. The main actor in the field of GPU in 2017 has been Nvidia. In addition, the manufacturer has not even been able to anticipate the strong demand in the minors last year.

The mining industry stimulates the benefits
Nvidia Corporation, the manufacturer of graphics processing units (GPUS), has registered a record turnover of 2.91 billion in the fourth quarter. An increase of 34 % was recorded, because a year earlier the sales of the company was $ 2.17 billion. The company has reached the peak of financial performance, at least in part, due to the high demand of the miners of crypto-currencies that buy its graphics cards wholesale.
